Happy Homemaker Monday 02.06.17


Good Morning!!  What an uneventful winter we have been having here.  Very little snow, which is so disappointing to me.  We did have sun over the weekend which is actually nice, since we’ve had long stretches of gloomy days.  Thursday, my son Elijah turned 16 years old.  He’s my middle kid, and has grown as tall as his older brother.  We just celebrated with food and cake with the family, which is getting harder to do as everyone’s schedules are different, we actually did this on Wednesday because of just that.  Each year that goes by I cherish these times with all my kids still in one place, I know it won’t be like this forever.  Here’s to another week!!

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







Recently I made a recipe that my mom used to make all the time, which she got from her mom.  My mom used to make it using her pressure cooker, but I did it in the crock pot, and it turned out sooo good.  I don’t know how authentic it is, but hey, we’re polish.  Plus, I researched it, and found out its not Chinese after all, it’s actually an American dish, so we’re good.

Chop Suey

2 lb. Chop Suey Meat

2 cups Celery (diced)

2 cups Carrots (diced)

1 cup Onions (diced)

4 T Bead Molasses

4 T Soy Sauce

4 cups water

Salt and Pepper

Salt and pepper meat, brown with onions in fry pan.  Mix Water, Molasses, and Soy sauce in crock pot.  Add browned meat, celery, and carrots.  Cook on high for 4 hours.  Serve over rice.

This is one I’d like to try next:  Apple Pie Tacos…looks yummy.



I sooo want to do this!!  Absolutely gorgeous!!



Happy 16th Elijah!!

  1. We’re getting more snow tonight. I could try to “will” some your way! 😛
    Happy birthday to Elijah!! Such a handsome young man. Where does the time go, huh? ::sigh::

    A floor done in pennies?? That’s crazy talk. Lol! That would require too much patience for me. But the apple pie tacos – hello LOVER!! 😉

    I hope you haven’t been working too hard. Nothing major new here….but feel free to send me an email update when you have time. Would love to know how you’re doing Lovie.

    Blessings on the rest of your week. xoxo

  2. I’m not sure why I didn’t realize we had kids so close in age, my oldest will turn 16 at the end of May. Happy Belated birthday to your son! While I’m not a fan of the snow so much, this mild winter has even found me uttering that I might actually enjoy a snow day! Hope you have a wonderful week!
