While I was on bedrest, i surfed this blog, going back a few years and saving things I liked.

This blog is about cooking (simply), home making, big family, chores, gardening, canning etc. If that interests you, check it out. She has put a huge effort into sharing her life in a humble way that doesn't make you feel like a loser (you know, those blogs).

Worth checking out...

Nope! She lost me. I clicked on the link, saw 4 perfectly baked loaves of bread, glanced at the shapeless lump my bread machine pumps out, and was instantly in "loser" mode.

Not to mention she made me buy that dutch oven on Amazon (I've been drooling over them lately, and it WAS a good price).

I don't have the dutch oven, but I do have the combined cooker (http://www.amazon.com/Lodge-LCC3-Logic-Pre-Seasoned-Cooker/dp/B0009JKG9M/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1302967488&sr=8-3-fkmr0)set which you can use as a small dutch oven, a fry pan, and large pot to cook whatever in.

LOVE it! I got it for my birthday in the fall. Such great pots!

Great blog Alice...I went there the other day when you first posted and found some really fun sewing blogs from following her links. Really nice costume and historical fashion blogs. VERY fun.

ETA: wow...I've never cooked bread (http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B0009JKG9M/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_0?ie=UTF8&index=0) in it...

We also have the outdoor dutch oven (http://www.amazon.com/Lodge-Logic-Pre-Seasoned-10-Quart-Dutch/dp/B00063RX2E/ref=sr_1_22?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1302967691&sr=1-22) for camping and we use it at home as well. If you get this, you need the lid hook and the little stand as well. We just got the bag for it. We've been storing and traveling with it in its box.

those blogs

You know, they make you feel like a lazy mom with a messy house.

I stopped reading those blogs because I don't have time decopauge my lampshades and hot glue little dingle dangle things on it. Then take 10 picture of it and write a whole article on it.

I don't want to feel guilty about it not having a lampshade like that. If I want to decorate my lampshade, I'll dust it.

:roflol: Alice, you are such a hoot! You should have a blog just so you can write funny things like that! :roflol:
(I know you do have a blog, but ahem, you haven't updated in a while, lady!)

Oh, great. Like I needed ANOTHER cookbook. I just paid for and downloaded her freezer cooking with meal starters cookbook. How will I explain this to Darrell? How?

Perhaps the same way I explained the dutch oven? I set it quietly on the counter, got rid of all the packaging and just ignored the fact that it was new. I'll make some really yummy bread, and maybe some yogurt in it and he'll instantly see the benefit of such a purchase (right?)

Yeppers have loved this blog since forever. I don't even feel bad about my messy house or not baking bread like she does. Bread baking is an art and to bake bread well it is learned over time.

However I do make soap, keep goats, raise a garden, heat with wood and hang my clothes out to dry....sometimes. I gave up making my own laundry soap because our clothes just didn't come as clean. I occassionally cook terrific meals several days in a row! :roflol:

I can relate about how you continue to be concerned and pray for your children even after they leave home, and especially the part about when one of them joins the military.

I think I am secretly glad she and I have the same body type. :roflol:
