turtle soup....

Remember that book about the little boy who made soup out of his turtle? what book was that? the same kid that had to count out 200 cheerios for breakfast every morning? Fudge something? I don't remember....
I didn't make turtle soup, I actually made carrot soup, and it was heavenly!
If you don't like tomato soup (like me) that's ok, but this soup is basically tomato soup, but with carrots.

Make it like this:

some chicken broth (4 cups)
some carrots (4 big ones, or more)

Boil for about 15 minutes

pour into blender like a cup at a time and blend 'til smooth.

(Watch out it is very hot and hard to keep in the blender)

put back in your pot and add:

salt, pepper and heavy whipping cream (about a cup?)

(I used evaporated milk, because that's what I had and it was SOO YUMMY!)

heat through and enjoy!

Cloth diapers are amazing!

So here's a few of the cloth diapers I have made, now that my son is almost ready to potty train I am looking to share my little bit of knowledge about these wonderful diapers!
they are SO simple and so much fun to make! and according to my math, you can diaper your child from birth to about age 3 (or potty trained) for about 140$ or less!!! That beats the HECK out of 1200$ in disposables! I sure could stand to get back some of the money I've spent on them!

the cloth insert is folded in the front for boys, and in the back for girls.

my son's back side, because that is usually the view I get... as he runs away, as fast as he can. :)

p90x weeks 2 and 3

still in I ended up with strep last thursday, rendering me nearly dead for the last week. but I had to report that after last nights non-attempt at plyometrics I successfully finished almost the whole work out tonight and I feel-tired, but great! and Senor Haagen-Dazs Strawberry agrees with me. :) Happy healthiness, more craftiness will come...when I can once again take pictures with a camera that can plug into a computer rather than be torn apart and developed at my local walmart.

week 1 success!!!

I have just finished week 1 of p90x!! I wanted to start the new year off right so I started my resolution a week early and I'm already enjoying a VERY sore and slightly stronger body! I haven't lost any weight yet, but it's only been a week. I figure I have let many a 90 day period pass without seeing results, but also without trying for any so here I go!! Chest and Back with Ab ripper tomorrow for anyone who wants to join in! but beware that I will be a little smug when I have finished my 90 days a week before you! :) JK! whoever you are, you probably have more will power than I.

eating almonds after a workout helps regulate your blood sugar levels and is a great source of yummy protein!!
