Sorry I took a child hiatus. The boy had surgery on the 28th and I thought we would be down and out for 5 days most well Wednesday will be 2 weeks. Food was the least of our worries these last few days/week. Now that he is on maybe a dose of pain meds a day (sweet!) and eating real foods...real solid foods too! So happy after the wicked intense pain he was in last weekend I am happy to be finally sleeping thru the night and not listening for his screams.

 I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and celebrated with love and peace in you hearts. We did. It was very quiet and spent quality time with the girl and boy.

The Loot

Having fun and playing with Picnik (the boy loved it)

 We had a great spread today with a Turkey breast roast done in the slow cooker.  I nuked some potatoes diced them and mixed them with sour cream, cheese, bacon and fired onions and baked till crisp.  I also made my Mom's Buckwheat concoction....cooked buckwheat mixed with fried bacon and onions.  Both kids LOVE it.  Sweet!  This is how my mom makes her buckwheat cabbage rolls.  Steamed peas.  Then dessert was so simple.....1 angle food cake mix.....1 can crushed pineapple including juice....1 9 x 13 pan....1 oven.....then you call it dessert!  LOL!  I searched and found a recipe for the recipe needy!  LOL!

About This Recipe

"A very simple, very light cake recipe that I found online when I needed something fast to bring to a bbq. I sprinkled shredded unsweetened coconut on top before cooking which was nice and toasty when it came out of the oven. I served it with strawberries and Cool Whip. Fantastic recipe when you need to whip up something simple in a hurry."

I took it from here minus their addition of coconut.  We topped ours with cool-whip and fresh yummy!

So I haven't even thought of any meals for this week coming up as the kids are off school and not extra activities too.  For sure there is left overs in our future and prob some bbqing too.  Then in 11 days I will go missing for about 16 days!  So don't come looking for me cause I will be hiding out in the sun and water!!!
