So, if you have children old enough to watch iCarly, you know who Spencer is and what his specialty food is, right? For weeks my girls had been asking me to make something particular for dinner. Look at "Sunday's" meal below.
Spaghetti-Tacos (yes, you read that right-Gross, with a capital G). So, I finally gave in on Sunday evening. I made a big bowl of spaghetti and fried up some taco shells.
Doesn't that look good? (Um, not really my cup of tea)
But Katelyn liked it...
And Emily liked it...
But Daniel and I stuck with plain old spaghetti.
Then my sweet girl even did the dishes (don't you just love her outfit?)
Here is a peek at our other adventure this weekend-exploring a friend's land in Clarks Valley.
Can you see how the rock side sheered off? Very cool
Here is how I started my weekend - I stayed up way too late creating some of my best cupcakes ever!
Coconut cupcake frosted with coconut buttercream and topped with toasted coconut flakes. (Can you tell I love coconut?) This is simply the best cupcake I have ever made. YUM-O!
Then...because I wasn't satisfied with one cupcake at 11:30 pm, I made a chocolate latte cupcake frosted with an espresso buttercream and topped with chocolate (wish I would have had chocolate espresso beans). This too was pretty darn good. Next: I have been thinking of making a Smores inspired cupcake and then something with lemon for sure. I also want to make chocolate covered bacon. I have heard it is very tasty. Anyone ever tried chocolate covered bacon?
I know I can skip a latte, a lunch out with a friend, or an impulse buy at the grocery store.
What about you?
2 Corinthians 8:9-12 says in part:
9 You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich... 11 ... Give in proportion to what you have. 12 Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. And give according to what you have, not what you don’t have.
