Happy Homemaker Monday 02.15.16

Happy Monday Morning!!  We are off from school today, so I get to spend my day doing a bunch of other stuff, lol.  We had a beautiful snowy Sunday.  Not a lot of accumulation, but the snow fell consistently all afternoon and evening, at least it is something.

Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.




Know Your Heart by Tracey Alvarez. This is the second book in the Far North series, tagged as A New Zealand Enemies to Lovers Romance. I enjoyed the interaction between the two main characters. Savannah is an actress, who was kicked off a movie set and replaced by a younger actress. She flees to her holiday hideaway house in Bounty Bay to get away from the media, and to lose a few pounds and get back in shape to prepare for an audition of a lifetime in LA. When she arrives at her home, she finds Glen, a friend of her cousins, and a lawyer who is there to fulfill his dream of becoming a writer. Being the lawyer that he is, he has a tenant agreement initiated by her cousin, that he refuses to break, therefore, leaving Savannah unwelcome in her own home. The tension between these two stubborn people is fun. For some reason, this little exchange made me laugh:

At least he’d finished laughing his butt off at her expense.
“Need a hand?”
Not unless he chopped it off and let her use it to slap his face. But she hadn’t been nominated for a Golden Globe for nothing.


Kid’s Baking Challenge
The Good Wife

These look really easy, delicious and healthy. I wonder how strong the banana flavor is in them. Worth a try, can’t go wrong with chocolate chip cookies!!

Healthy cookies

3 Mashed Bananas (ripe)
1/3 c Applesauce
2 c oats
1/4 c Almond Milk
1/2 c Raisins or dark chocolate chips (I would use the chips) 
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Bake for 15-20 minutes! Yummy!

Recently I posted about cleaning an iron with salt. Yeah…it didn’t work, and I think I broke my iron. 😐 There has to be a way to prevent it, or clean it easily, one day I’ll find it!!

So the boys and I had fun making our ice marbles. Even as cold as it was, it took a couple of days for them to completely freeze.


This blue one turned out really cool, you can see the frozen bubbles inside of it.

Since we didn’t have a lot of snow, they were mostly sitting on the ground, so there are some flat spots.  It would be best if you could let them freeze in a pile of snow, because they would keep their shape better.

We also picked some of them up too soon, and all the water came out of the bottom, but it made a really cool ice bowl, it looks like it is etched too.  So we made some colorful ice cubes to fill the bowl.
