Let's just say that Penny ate some of our dinner tonight because even SETH JONES wouldn't eat it. Now, if you know Seth..he will eat almost anything...
When I was grocery shopping the other day, i decided to buy a sweet potato. Seth loves them but me..not so much. I wanted to cook it for him because i knew he liked them so i bought one and tried cooking it tonight. I don't eat them or have never cooked one before so I thought you just cook them like regular potatoes. Bring water to a boil, cube it, and let it cook until it gets soft. So, I did just that and then proceeded to mix it with brown sugar, butter..a dash of cinnamon. But it looked like this:
Needless to say, Seth did NOT eat them, and we fed them to the doggie.
Poor Seth has to get up at 4am to be at work at 5am. I feel sorry for him because while he is working, I am sleeping our comfy bed and get to sleep as late as I want to! I'm so thankful that he is providing for our little family. Even if it isn't the best job, he is doing it with his whole heart and working his hardest.
This verse comes to my mind when I think of how hard Seth works without complaining and with a joyful heart.
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart,
as working for the Lord, not for men." -Colossians 3:23
Seth and I got to talking today and I was telling him how I thought he should post once or twice on our blog. He said that he doesn't really have an interest in blogging, and since I loved doing it so much that I should keep it for myself. Sometimes I feel that my posts are too "female specific" but I guess it's okay. If you are male though, thanks for reading! :) Maybe I'll post once about hunting or fishing...haha that would be interesting to read for sure.
With that being said, I'll show you some more of my recent redo's since I can be as girly as I want! Here is a tray I got from GW (Goodwill) for .99 cents:
(Sorry for the poor lighting)
Here it is after a coat of paint:
The other day I baked 8 loaves of banana bread...I froze them and whenever I want a loaf, I'll just take it out and thaw it. I've already eaten so much and have told myself I am not allowed to take another loaf out until next week. :P
Here is the YUMMMMY recipe I used. It's from Cooking Light.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk.

Add banana, yogurt, and vanilla; beat until blended. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until moist. Spoon batter into an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray.

I looked at other recipes, and they had twice as much fat and about 150 more calories per slice. This one was so moist and yummy, I will definately be using this one for years.
Speaking of fat...
Huey Cat is fat. When he got him, he weighed around 8 pounds. Take a look at this:
So everyone...go make that banana bread and tell me how to make sweet potatoes!
