Freshly Brewed...

Last night the decision was made between the husband and I to exchange our Christmas gifts early. Lets just say I am so glad that we did! I have been drooling over one of these for awhile now and now I finally got my hands on one.
(brewing some Rich Milk Tea)
Ahh...It was just what I needed. He was also so kind to get me some wild berry tea from Rishi. Sooo yummy!! He did good. Merry CHRISTmas!!!!!

Roasted Chicken & Sweet Potatoes with Cinnamon...

This recipe has been a favorite of mine this year. It's quick, easy, cheap, and pretty darn healthy too! It only takes a few minutes to prep all of the ingredients and then your ready to cook! (This recipe makes about 2-3 servings)

 (starting with above picture) Take about 2-3 medium sweet potatoes. Dice into 1 inch cubes. Toss with olive oil or coconut oil. About 1-2 tablespoons worth. Then sprinkle with 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon. (or more if you like)
 Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and spread evenly on a baking sheet. (I covered mine in foil).

 Now place 2 chicken breast-boneless/skinless-(which have also been oiled and coated with the salt/pepper/cinnamon mixture) on the baking sheet with the sweet potatoes. (I had already had some chicken made up from the night before, I was just reheating it a bit with the sweet potatoes) Cook at about 375-380 degrees F. for about 35-45 minutes or until potatoes are tender/caramelized and the chicken is cooked all the way through. Then enjoy!

Siuil a run...

Feeling the need for some relaxation, this is one of my favorite songs to listen to. Absolutely beautiful.

Old Salem...

In September, my family and I took a trip to Old Salem here in NC for their "Home School Days". We had so much fun and got to see a lot of really neat stuff. Here are some pictures from our trip.

Is there anyone still out there?

Well, I have to admit. I haven't much felt like writing on this blog of mine lately. I really want to change that. I'm not sure if there is still anyone who reads this thing or not, but I suppose I'll come up with more to say more often. ; ) More to come in a bit!

Yours truly...
