Okay, so for the fun supply I used – it was my new Quickutz Silhouette digital craft cutter! YAY! I used money I received from Christmas to order one of these babies, and I’m LOVING it! I cut out the words “Oh those” above and the fun flowers, swirls, and title below. You basically type in whatever you want it to cut, and it does!
I was nervous about getting it because it says it will only cut out True Type fonts. I didn’t know what that meant, really, wondering how many fonts that included. But I found that nearly every font I have in Word works with it – including my all time fav. font of CK Becky!! YES! It also comes with about 50 shapes that it will cut, with a bunch more you can purchase online if you want. I will be using it primarily for cutting out my titles, but really there is almost no limit. I love it!
I got home from church today and felt the desire for something sweet. I cracked open my SLow Cooker recipe book and came across this yummy recipe (which I actually cooked in my oven because my slow cooker was busy cooking a pork roast – ha!) I have to share this recipe because it’s SO easy and yummers, too!
1 Cup flour
1/2 Cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
2 large eggs, fork-beaten
2 Tbsp. cooking oil
2 Tbsp. Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
3 cups mixed fresh or frozen berries (I used the tripleberry frozen mix from Costco)
3/4 cup sugar (you could use a little less – maybe 1/2 cup)
1/2 Cup water
Stir first 5 ingredients together in a bowl. Add the next 4 ingredients and mix well. Turn into an ungreased slow cooker (or into a ceramic pie plate if cooking in the oven). Measure the last 3 ingredients into a saucepan and heat until boiling, stirring occasionally. Pour over the batter. If cooking in the slow cooker, place 5 paper towels between the top of the slow cooker and the lid to absorb moisture and cook on high for 1-2 hours. If using oven, place on middle rack of a 400F oven and bake for about 20 minutes. This serves about 6-8 – depending on your appetite 😉 It would have been so yummy with some Breyers Vanilla Ice Cream – but it was the Sabbath, and we didn’t have any. Oh well – next time.
Oh and one more quick thing. We were shopping at the local Giant Tiger store (which I had never before been in) and found this awesome clock for under $10! Score! I wanted either a circular clock or mirror for that spot above our bed, and this did the trick! Of course, I don’t have any batteries because the ticking would keep me awake all night! LOL! I guess there are some benefits to digital clocks (which we have on our dresser). I still love it. It matches perfectly. I sure love a good deal!
That’s all for now! Hope you had a great weekend!
