Homemade Things

The boys and I decided to stay home to rest today. The TEA Party rally and the bike ride really took a lot out of my body. I have been catching up on laundry, which is much needed as the boys will be going camping this weekend. For today's post I thought I would share all things homemade. I hope the pictures are inspiring.

Banana muffins with coconut on top.
The pot on the stove contains soup as seen below.

Used the ham bone from our Easter ham.
The soup has beans, carrot, celery, onion, garlic, Italian parsley
and a can of creamed corn in it. My men loved it.

This is a pan of mashed potato biscuits.
Yep, I used leftover mashed potatoes.
They are absolutely delicious!
Here is the recipe.

This is my strawberry applesauce.
Berry simple to make.
Just peel & chop apples and some strawberries.
Place in a pot with 1/2 c. water & sugar.
Add a cinnamon stick.
Bring to a boil, then simmer till tender.
Remove the cinnamon stick and then use a hand
blender to make it nice & smooth.

This is a treasure I got for Easter from my
sister in-law. She crocheted this bunny
and chick. I love them!

And last, but not least, this is the handiwork
of my son, Brandon and his Dad.
Brandon had to make a model of the solar system for
science class. The sun is a paper lantern that Brandon painted.
They did a fantastic job on it.

Oh my, your muffins, soup, and biscuits look so yummy! I must try your strawberry sauce. I had never heard of that, but it sounds delicious. Tell Brandon that I love his solar system -- a very good job, indeed!
