I just wanted to let you know that I have not fallen off the far side of the earth! My sister wanted to know if we all died after fixing and eating the recipe that I posted about in the last post. LOL
Actually my computer started having issues. My computer wiz friend Paul Holden got a hold of it and fixed the problem that I was having. We cleaned up a few things but now my computer tells me I have lost my connection to Google. hmmmmm I can go anywhere, surf anywhere, but when it comes to signing in to anything associated with Google I cant do it. I cant sign in to update my blog, I cant sign in to post a comment on your blog, I cant log into Google Reader, anyway you get the point. I am now on someone elses computer just to let you know that I havent died.( not that anyone reads this or cares LOL). Hopefully Paul can get things worked out. I have a ton of stuff to blog about! So when I get it going I will be be posting a bunch.

One of our Favorites

This is one of my families favorite meals. I like it because it is easy and it is a one dish meal. Kaitlyn actually made this tonight for us. Randy is working at the church tonight so we didn't double the recipe like normal. I am going to give you the recipe so you can try it if you would like. Konnor likes it and he is very picky. Enjoy!!
Colorful Kielbasa
1 can of condensed cream of celery soup
3/4 cp. water
1 TBS butter or margarine
1 lb. kielbasa cut up in 1 in. pieces ( I have used smoked sausage also)
3/4 cp. long grain rice
1 1/4 cp frozen peas
1 1/2 cp shredded cheddar cheese
In a skillet combine soup,water, and butter. Bring to a boil. Add kielbasa and rice. Reduce heat and simmer for 15-18 minutes or till rice is tender. Stir in peas. Cover and simmer till peas are heated through. I sometimes add a little more water at this time if it needs it. Sprinkle with cheese.

My Big Boy

Today was a nice day so I suggested to Konnor that he try to ride his bike with no training wheels. He was game so I pulled both training wheels up and the lesson started. Needless to say that about 20 minutes later he was speeding down the sidewalk. It took him a little longer to learn to start off on his without a push but he soon learned that too. Daddy came home and took the training wheels off completely. He is quite proud of himself!!

Gourmet Dirt

This is how Kade came to the back door the other night. I about cracked up and then ran for the camera. His whole body was covered in dirt.
