Happy 50th Anniversary Mom & Dad!

It was a WONDERFUL Celebration! We had unexpected family come and even friends we hadn't seen in over 18 years (for my folks) and 14 years for me. It was Wonderful! We even had plenty of food left over. My sister and her girls plus me and even both parents pitched in a wee everything ready for when people started showing up for the open house. My Oldest daughter Rebekah and her family came and she went and got her little sister and her family so my girls and their families were there as well as my 5 grandchildren. They were the only great grandchildren of Dad and Mom's 8 greats that were there to celebrate! I hope my parents get another 30 years with us at least Lord Willing!

Breakfast Baked Oatmeal

Well I couldn't get the pictures to post so I'm giving you a link to my Picasa Album :)

I'm so sorry I haven't been around lately...its been a BUSY week! Anyhow, I thought you'd like this recipe. Its one of my favorites but I haven't made it up for a few years. So I made me a batch yesterday for my breakfast...Man was it ever SOOOOO Goooood!

Breakfast Baked Oatmeal
1/2 c. melted butter (or margarine)
1 c. milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon ( I used 1 tsp)
3 c. Oatmeal (I used quick cooking oats)

Mix together and cook at 350 deg. for 45 minutes.

You can also add: apple bits, raisins, dried fruits (any), coconut, chopped nuts, chocolate chips etc. This serves 10. It can also be frozen in single serving sizes if you wish.

For me: I added 1 cup coconut, 1 cup choc chips, 2 cups dried cranberries and 1 cup walnuts chopped. Yummies!

Good Tips! 15 Uses for Baking Soda

Most of you know I have MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) from years of being exposed to bombing chemicals (aka bug bombs), making homemade soaps and fragrances. To this day I have a hard time handling being around someone with perfume or heavy sprays. Over time, I've also developed allergies or reactions to cleaning chemicals including Bleach.

So coming across this was a Aha moment! I saved the tips but thought my blog friends and family might want the same tips!
