Since the holidays are upon us, I thought it fitting to focus on that "joyful" time of year. It is joyful isn't it? While most people may have visions of sugar plums dancing frozen ham joint their heads, step-families are probably more concerned about who will be where and what they will do once they get there. There's nothing like the holidays to give step-families a headache.
You can't even taste the chia hidden in a sandwich, so this is an excellent way to add nutrition to your kids' lunches too! Try it in gammon joint slow cooker and cheese croissants, tuna melts, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Baby got the best deal when it came to breakfast. Since we were all eating on the fly to ensure that we'd be back at the house in time for the boys return, we brought along some chicken fingers and milk for her. For us, we stopped at one of our favorite bakeries. I stayed in the car with baby whilst the wife ran in to get something to eat. She returned with two savory sausage rolls that looked absolutely dismal to me. Even though I was desperately hungry at the time, I simply couldn't bring myself to even consider taking a bite. In the end we wound up pulling over at a convenience shop further down the road. Thinking that nobody could screw up a cooking ham and cheese sandwich , I went with that. I turned out to be so very wrong. It tasted absolutely horrible and it gave me a sick stomach.
Place on soft tortilla in a hot frying pan. Spread with tomato sauce or pizza sauce. Sprinkle grated cheese on top and other fillings like ham, bacon, peppers, onions and tomatoes. Place another tortilla on top and heat until cheese melts. Cut into pizza triangles.
Most Thanksgiving dinner tables are packed with once a year favorites. One way to spend less is to cook less. If you are hosting the family get tog ether, make it a pot luck. You provide the main star, the turkey or christmas ham, 3 side dishes and one dessert. Have the other members of your family to RSVP what they will be bringing. We have done this for years on my fathers side of the family. We look forward to the fried Turkey my uncle brings. We fight over who gets the last of the chicken and dumplings. The kids make themselves sick with too much of my cousins banana pudding. With everyone chipping in, the cost is not too much for anyone. It turns the meal into a real celebration, one person is not stuck in the kitchen all day cooking.
I often think about the freight I deliver and how it might make an impact on someone's life. Perhaps the steel beams that I delivered to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville will support the building where a doctor resides who will perform life-saving surgery on a child. Perhaps the lumber I delivered to Newnan, Georgia will make up a wall for the new home of a young couple that have worked and saved to realize their dream. As for the thousands of boxes of toilet paper I have delivered all over the country, well... that should darned near earn me a halo!
