It's been a while since I posted about other good blog posts, but only because of lack of time or energy! So, here are some recent favorites, and my commentary. ;)
First, if you enjoy food posts with photos, then head over to Meredith's blog, because shes been posting lots of interesting things... from gourment lunchbox meals (and here I thought I was doing good just to get my husband's lunchbox packed with food, never minding the presentation! :D) to flavored vegetable water (now I'm wanting to make hummus... thanks for the suggestion!) to all about party food (wow, those tomato sandwiches are on the menu for my breakfast tomorrow! ;D). For someone who always talks about my food photos, well, I think this is pretty stiff competition! ;) But at least she has some disasters every now and then, like I do. ;)
Now, anyone who likes books and free pizza, and who has homeschoolers in elementary grades, check out Bethany's post about Book-It for homeschoolers! I was excited to read that they allow homeschoolers to participate! I'll have to wait another 2 years before Yehoshua would be eligible though. ;) Not that we need any more motivation to read... it's already one of our favorite daily activities! :)
Crystal at Biblical Womanhood made some homemade hot pockets and posted instructions and photos! I have made something similar in the past, but it's always nice to be reminded (with pictures!) of a simple meal idea. My menus have had anything BUT "Everyday Cooking Inspiration" (our phrase at the top of this site!) recently! :P
I wanted to try Mrs. Wilt's Sweet 'n' Tangy Macaroni Salad recipe, but it just hasn't happened yet. :) Since Joshua prefers potato salad over macaroni salad, trying this recipe hasn't been placed high enough on my list of "want to make"s... yet. :)
And lastly... this isn't exactly food-related, but Court has some humorous, well-written, and interesting tales about being a new mom to 3. I've been reading her posts with interest... and just a little fear. I sure hope this isn't what I'm in for! :D Actually, I am going to use the mindset I had when Eliyahu joined our family (prepare for the worst case scenario -- fussy baby and no sleep for weeks -- and certainly not 20 minutes to make a meal!) which involved a lot of planning and resulted in a pretty smooth transition. At least, a whole lot smoother than Yehoshua's entry into our home ("What?! You mean babies don't sleep all day? Some of them actually cry... a lot?! Maybe I should have put some food in the freezer after all...").
