Uhhhhh…haha…

I forgot to set an alarm today and I just woke up…😳 I’ll post tomorrow. I even had it all ready to be posted but it’s a little late today.

Enjoy the rest of your Thursday 🤩

(My cover photo is a picture I took from a movie about Nature.) Just wish my day would resemble this place. Calming, busy, beautiful, peaceful….☺️

Journey With Cookbooks #16

Cheesy Ground Beef Quesadilla!

Another Google recipe.

I wish I could find a cookbook that is only ground beef recipes…

This recipe says it takes 45min…🤨 another easy dinner!! A mom’s happy plan.

My ingredients!!
Defrost the ground beef.

When I initially brought the beef up, I thought I had already put it in water. But alas no, I did not. So now I have to wait the 30min.

The tunes are on!

Unless I am trying a new recipe I don’t listen to my iTunes. I usually just roll with my Spotify playlist. Mostly because I used to listen to wide range of music and I would rather Elizabeth’s first words be from an bad song.

Fears of a mama.

Back to cooking.

Dice the onion. Do you see the cute cow butter dish in the back!?! It was my hubby’s grandma’s. I am a lover of cows too!
I have chosen applesauce and corn for the sides to dinner. I know it’s not a real vegetable but it works.
Beef!

I forgot to take a picture of cooking the beef, but let’s be honest…you know what it looks like. It looks the same as always. And this is me draining the fat off.

Oil, onion, salt, pepper!
And my foot down in the left bottom corner…

Sorry. I am a little goofy today as I write this recipe up. No, my foot is not included into the food.

It doesn’t seem right…?

This recipe does not have pictures with the steps. Hopefully this is right…

Warming up the cast iron skillet. I like how the tortilla crisps. The meat mixture looks okay now.

I love Tim McGraw.

I had to skip various songs. Some were too random for my brain. Also some had some colorful words.

Starting to look yummy!!

I added the green onions. It was not in the list of ingredients, but green onions always add more delicious flavors.

Interesting mix.

I’ve already given the hubby his and Elizabeth her Mac n cheese. This one is Mama’s!!
Yum!

Of course the night I choose to make a quesadilla, is the day when we are out of salsa, sour cream, and guacamole. 😞 it was still delicious but I was bummed about the lack of extras.

But to the scoring.

Look Like Picture: 9. Mostly because I used the cheese I had. It was the cheddar jack mix from Costco. Not really the right taste, but still worked.

Taste: 9. I think it worked. But I think it would better with some diced green chilies mixed in. I’ve been in a spicy mood. The hubby liked it. He gave it an 8, just because he wasn’t very hungry to begin with.

Easiness: 10! It was easy. Another easy peasy recipe for a baby brained mama. Meaning… “dumb moments”. I have those days occasionally often. 😂

Hope you enjoyed the post. But also my music playlist.

Art!!

It seems like I get small amounts of time to do art. Finally finished my newest card!! I’ll put the difference between no paint details and paint details. It’s amazing how it changes the entire picture.

I love doing the paint details. I apply it with toothpicks.

Have a wonderful Saturday night ❤️

Excited!!

My sister is getting married soon!! I am so exited for her! I am bummed that I am not down there to help and witness, but because of the pandemic I will have to miss it. We will be traveling down afterwards so I will be able to give them their bachelorette/wedding gifts.

This blog post is just for her! I am so happy for her and my new brother-in-law. Welcome to the family

‘Wedding Photos‘ by emily2jane

I painted them a wedding photo. It’s tempera on canvas. Plus a piece of lace fabric. Found out what they would look like, but completely my creation.

It seemed weird this year…

It’s been almost 3 years…but this year making my birthday cake felt weird. It shouldn’t but it did. I got to zoom my family which was nice but making the cake, putting the candles in, and lighting them this year felt strange.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m a Mama now and my birthday isn’t as important as before when I didn’t have a baby…

It just felt strange this year.

Also my sisters cakes are to die for!! 😍

Visiting home.

It’s strange, that I live in another state now but that I still consider my mom’s house home…it’s a different kind of home. It has so many memories and my family is there. No matter what was going on we would all meet at mama’s and hang out. ❤️ I miss that so much!!

But we are on our way to see my family!! I’m so excited!!

But I’m also excited for my siblings to meet my daughter! She is 11 weeks today…and we are traveling south. The baby is behaving really well, we have a very well behaved baby. 😎

They will finally get to determined whether she is or not. I’m excited for my nephews to meet her. Especially the youngest because now there is a little person smaller than him.

Stopping in Utah, then we are coming home tomorrow!❤️

I am sorry…

I am sorry to my followers…I will finish the story tomorrow, but I have had a long strenuous weekend. One fourteen hour day and one twelve hour day to be exact. Not relaxing hours, but doing hard work…

This is our trailer to take my hubby from point A to point B in a more affordable way…but it needed some love.

My husbands mind is amazing, because he has been telling me all the designs and what he was going to do, and I thought I understood but I didn’t. It was much more amazing than I had thought of…😎

My job was to grind down the rust on the cross beams that were broken. I started with this air grinder one for a while but I advanced up to a heftier one after a while.

So as much as I want to continue the story I am pooped and if I tried to write today the story would end just like how I am feeling. So I’m going to give myself a day to recoup and I’ll finally finish the story tomorrow. Again I am sorry, but I’m exhausted.

What do you think of my Saturday attire…😜 I was pretty much wearing this throughout both days…

Friday

The glorious day of Friday is here 😊❤️!!

Things that happen on there marvelous day of Friday: I get to work about 5 hours of overtime; I get to go to my mother’s house and putter; I get to go home early with my mister; we take a long beautiful, but exhausting hike; lastly, we don’t have to wake up early Saturday morning! Even though that just means waking up at 6:30, instead of 5:30…but it does make a difference.

Enjoy your spectacular Friday, because no matter what mine is going to be wonderful. More than likely, I’ll spend it sitting, sleeping, or slightly moving; but most definitely, with a lot of smiling. 😁

Some art to start the smiling process…

He’s home again ❤️

Finally my hubby is home. He was gone for 3 days and it felt like a lifetime…but he is home safe and sound. He brought with him a new toy that will last him quite a while. Men and their vehicles…😊

It’s a strange thing but my mother and I named her white van, Bessie and I’ve always wanted to name a car. But my hubby’s cars have always been his, this one is “ours”; even though I won’t be allowed to drive it for a while. I’m fine with that, I like being the passenger… being driven around like a princess. Awesomeness!!

But we are deciding upon a name. The Beast would be good but he already as a vehicle named that, and the Beast is a sweet-sweet. I like the name ‘Big Bertha’ or ‘Burt’ just because it sounds funny and awesome at the same time. He made a face at those names. So he might name it one thing, but when I eventually drive…beware of Big Bertha or Burt!!
