What smells so warm in here.

My dear Rollie walked in the house today after walking home from the bus and he yelled, "What smells so Warm in Here"! How perfect is that statement. I had just made two beautiful loaves of bread.

Making Banana Pancakes

Ok here it is the kid pleaser

1C flour Wheat is great
1 Tbls white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg beaten
1 C milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tbls apple sauce
1 tsp cinnamon
1 ripe banana mashed (put into ziplock squeeze, cut end of ziplock and squeeze out
some chocholate chips fold into batter
Mix dry ingrediants, mix wet ingrediants, mix in dry to wet. should be clumpy, make pancakes as usually. High temp works great on griddle. I cook mine on 375 degrees

My kids used either syrup, butter or peanut butter to top.

Ok cute kid moment of the day. I told Garet to lay down so I could change his diaper. Well he decided to be funny and lay on the car play table. When i went to change him he said don't worry mamma Im not a car...

Love the Starwars, Rollie and I have been watching the series these last few days and Im loving it.
So Christmas was great, We went bowling on the 23rd which was a blast. On the 24th we tried going to my Cousin Anne's house but unfortunatly Rollie ended up with the Flu bug. The same one that struck Norah down on Saturday and myself on Monday.
Dec. 31 we got a wonderful evening with old friends at Sara and Virgils house. All my best friends from High School were there. The kiddos got to help my mother take down trees and enjoy a movie. That following Friday we headed up to Jeremy's Aunties house and stayed at a local hotel that had a waterpark. The kids had so much fun, we even got to watch Andrew (jer's cousin)the head lifeguard do a rescue. Sara and Virgil came up to the hotel on Saturday and Sara and I plunged in the water with all the kids and Jeremy and Virgil fought the 12" earlier snow fall to ice fish. Lucky them another 8" were added that day after there house made it on the ice.
This week Jeremy is once again enjoying some 70's in Texas while the coldest week of the year I am in MN. THis happened last year also. And there were a few times he was in Thailand with 100+ weather while I was in the 0degree climate.
I will be adding a section onto the blog that will give free e coupons. This is a wonderful thing to have and most stores accept the store sale, the manufactured coupon plus the e-coupon which gives you a triple saving on many items.
OH I forgot Jeremy Grew a Beard, Everyone now refers to him as Honest Abe. I personally really like it and wish he would have done it every winter. All post a pic of it later.

I will try to type in searches that worked today to help you get some bucks.
If you have no idea what swagbucks are let me tell you. is a search engine with rewards. Randomly type in searches that you would type in everyday and a swag buck might appear. When you earn so many swagbucks you are rewarded with gift certificates, borders, the list goes on and on. Here is my link to help you get started and to help me get an extra point for myself

I promise this is no gimmic. I will also post a ton of my websites I use to download great coupons. Please when you download the coupons be earth friendly and use recycled paper backs. Also turn your inkjet printer down to 100x100 dpi the lowest setting.
