Happy Homemaker Monday...

On my bedside table: 'The G-free Diet' by Elisabeth Hasselbeck
On my TV: ESPN (my husband is home today!)
On the menu for tonight: Off the grill: steak, salmon, corn on the cob
On my to do list: laundry, swimming w/ Little Miss
New recipe I tried last week: Nothing new but I did make homemade pancakes (no mix!), banana bread and cake. See, I do cook!
In the craft basket: nothing
Looking forward to: the first full week of summer vacation - no schedules! :)
Homemaking tip of the week: You can cook your corn on the cob in the microwave. Keep them in the husks and cook one piece for 5 minutes. Add more minutes for more ears. Last night I did 3 for about 10 minutes. Take the husks and silks off right before serving - use a potholder to keep from burning your hands. An added benefit: you save lots of water by not boiling them!
Favorite Blog post of the week (mine or another): This one is great for all us moms out there!
Lesson learned the last few days: Sometimes it IS 'just me'. People might be aggravating and a pain in the neck & complain a lot but they have no clue they act that way. It just seems to bother me & I need to get over it.
On my prayer list: The men and women who have served & are currently serving our country so that we may have our freedom.
Devotional, Scripture reading, key verse:
John 14:27 - Jesus said, Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

I did homemade pancakes this week too and they were a big hit. I am finding that many things are just as easy to do from scratch as store bought...who knew????

I've been working on getting away from anything processed, so it is an adventure!
