Mama Loves Crayons!

NOT Candy 
NOR Soap
NOR Vitamins, 
          Drugs or 
              Jello Shots

It's CRAYONS Silly!

Who doesn't LOVE crayons!

Mama decided to be a little crafty today and melted down some old crayon stubs
to make some pretty new chunky ones! 

Here is how I did it.

Peel the paper off of the old crayons.
Spray the inside of muffin tin or oven proof baking mold.
Drop the crayons in the mold.
Bake it for about 10 minutes in an oven at 275 degrees.

Let them cool nice and long.
Pop them in the freezer if you have to!
Then POP those babies out and
get to coloring!

Nice and CHUNKY for little hands or old hands like mine!
So fun to do with the kids or NOT and say you did!  ;)

Mama LOVES A Good Burger!

Oh how I LOVE a good burger!
In Texas we grill our burgers outside and then bring them inside
to dress them up nice and pretty!
My hubby always laughs at me because by the time
he has finished his burger I am about done "fixin" mine up!

Usually I like mayo and mustard on my buns but every
now and then I like some special Texas sauce!

My special Texas sauce tastes a little like the sauce from
In N Out
Just a little.

Here is my recipe………
Texas Special Sauce
1/2 Cup Olive Oil Mayo
1 1/2 T Ketchup
1 T Apple Cider Vinegar
3 t  Sweet Pickle Relish
3 t chopped white onion
1 drop of Tabasco

Stir it up, chill and then slap it on a burger bun! Good on burgers, chicken, and even shrimp poboy sandwiches!

Baby Cakes

Baby Girl #2 Can BAKE A cake!
I mean REALLY BAKE a cake!
She made her very first wedding cake!
It turned out beautiful, tasty and so very moist.
It was all from scratch.
She tried out three recipes and had a taste test.
I was so proud of her! She baked it the day before 
and decorated it the morning of the wedding so it
would be fresh and perfect!
It was a LONG drive to the venue
but the cake made it safe and sound!

Vanilla cake from scratch!
