Fun Food Friday 9-16-11

FFF was not quite as fun without Daddy.  He had to work last night, but we still had some yummy stuff.  Our dinner wasn't new.  It was basically spaghetti with a lot of mozzarella cheese.  It was still wonderful.  Big Man had to have his time with the camera too.  I thought he did pretty good.

Here is a pic before I put on the mozzarella cheese.

The dessert was new.  Ok, my next words may sound a little strange coming from a chocoholic, but this dessert is really rich.  Don't get me wrong, I still ate it.  It was soooooooo goooood.  I love the look on Big Man's face.  You can tell he's mixing up something chocolatey.
Of course, Big Man wanted another turn with the camera.

And here is our delicious end product.

If you would like either one of these recipes, just let me know.  And don't forget that I now have a FFF spot on the sidebar.  Let me know how yours turns out.  Also, I would love some ideas for FFF meals.  Please email me some that you would like us to try (ericafrisk@gmail.com).  All for now.

Book Review

So I completely forgot to post about an amazing book that I have recently read.  I wanted to share it with you because it really touched me.  It was one of those books that just invokes a  lot of emotion the entire time you're reading it.  At one point, you STRONGLY DISLIKE the woman in it and the next moment you have such pity for her.  The book is called Redeeming Love and I fell in love with it.  It is a christian fiction book by Francine Rivers and the story is closely related to the story of Hosea in the Bible.  I absolutely loved it and hope that you get a chance to read it.  There is also a summary and study guide if you wish to use this in a book club setting.  Please let me know if you read it. I would love to hear your comments.  All for now.

August Recap

I'm a little late with this one, but everything is just a little busy around our house right now.  August was quite a full and busy month as it seems September is turning out to be.  We started the month with a birthday.  Big Man turned 7 on the 6th.  We took him out for breakfast and had a little family party that night.  It was a fun day.  Oh yea, except for the fact that big man smacked into an I-beam at Bass Pro Shop.  He's getting so big.

Right after his birthday, Homeschool started.  We started on the 8th of August this year.  We usually start the first week in September, but Hubby and I decided to start early so we could take 2 weeks in October to enjoy the fall, our favorite season.  Here are some pics from the Sunday before school started and some from the first week.

Big man is in 2nd Grade this year and Goose is in Kindergarten.  We'll see how this year goes before we decide whether or not Goose is ready for 1st grade next year.  Little Woman could not be left out of the pictures so she was hammin it up.
Of course, Little Woman's idea of a good school day is one where she gets to wear Goose's underwear on her head.  Sounds like a really disgusting plan to me, but hey, at least they were clean.
Hubby also started school this month.  He started his classes at college and is loaded down with that.  I think he's lovin it.  Big Man started soccer practice and I have a slew of projects that I have been working on.  Don't forget to check out the FFF section of the blog every week to find out what we're having for FFF.  Pictures will probably follow on Sat. morn.  Not sure yet since Big Man's soccer games are on Sat. morn.  All for now.
