Tuesdays Tips {from a Mom of 10!}




Make memories with your children!  Let things go if you have to -- but enjoy your little ones (and not so little ones!) while you can!  Children grow up faster than you can imagine!  

Don't get caught up in a cycle of negativity!  Find something to praise your children for every day! Make them feel loved and special!  Tie heart strings!  You'll never regret it!  :)

From my Front Porch ~ July 18, 2014






Welcome back to my weekly series, From my Front Porch, where I share updates from my home and family. My hope is that you'll fix yourself a cup of coffee or tea and imagine us sitting together on my front porch, chatting about life and catching up on the latest news!  I hope you'll join me each Friday on My Front Porch!  






First of all, I think you'll be glad to know that after three weeks with no stove that my cooktop is finally fixed!  :)  YAY!  It does make my life easier!  :)



Last Friday, we ate FREE at Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A -- an event that we look forward to every year!!  :)  It was little Sarah's first Cow Day!  Isn't she too cute??  Her bib says, "I look Moo-valous!"  :)



Here is a picture of our fine-looking herd!!  




Seeing Tyler in the picture above makes me sad.  You see, after two years of living with us and becoming a part of our family, Tyler has mooooved on.  (Sorry!  Couldn't resist!)  As you know, he graduated from college in May (as the Valedictorian, I might add) and he has a job as an elementary school teacher in another town.  He is there now getting his classroom ready for the year.  I want to go ahead and predict right here that you will see his name again in a few years as the Georgia Teacher of the Year!  His students are in for a real blessing!  He is smart, hard working, fun, creative, and truly loves kids! He also loves God and is just an all around amazing guy!  He will be a great teacher!  We are reallly missing him here!  (Especially Matt, his fishing buddy!) 

Yikes, it just dawned on me -- with him and Joe both gone, there is no one here to help tutor the kids in higher Math!!!  Luke may have to Skype with Tyler each evening!!  ;)


We are still enjoying those {free} fresh blueberries we picked!  I want to share one of my favorite recipes for using those sweet berries! 




These are simply AMAZING!  :)

Blueberry Cream Pancakes

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup fresh blueberries

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  

2. In a smaller bowl, combine eggs, milk, sour cream and butter.

3. Stir liquid ingredients into flour mixture just until moistened.  Fold in blueberries.

4.  Pour batter by 1/4 cupful onto a greased, hot griddle.  Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until the sceond side is golden brown.

5. Serve with butter, syrup, or optional blueberry sauce.

Blueberry Sauce:

Ingredients:

1/2 cup sugar
2 TBSP cornstarch
1 cup cold water
4 cups fresh blueberries

Directions:

1. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water until smooth. Add blueberries. 

2. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm until ready to serve.


Note:

I double this recipe for my family.  We usually have some leftovers, which I refrigerate and they are devoured by the next day!

Enjoy!

I wish I could make some of these for Tiffany today, but she is spending the summer in Brevard, NC at the Brevard Music Center!  Today is her 29th birthday!!!!!!  So, I'm hoping she has a Fantabulous birthday doing what she loves!!!





A couple of Important Reminders:

Don't forget about the Jamberry Giveaway!  You can enter to win a $25 gift certificate for Jamberry Nail wraps!

If you homeschool, make sure you check out the Homeschool Build-a-Bundle Sale and register to win $100!








Thanks for stopping by my front porch for a visit! I'd love for you to take a moment to "sign my guest book" (leave a comment!) so I can know that you stopped by and enjoyed your visit!  Please join me again next Friday on my front porch!
