the latest (+ recipe)

As you can see, I'm not so good at keeping up with the blogging, so once again, I am writing a post combining all the latest happenings around our place.

First, I have to share these pictures of the adorable Elli. Our friends just got her and we can't get enough of her. She's so much fun and so well behaved!

We've been wakeboarding quite a lot lately because Brolin brought back his parents boat. We try to go as much as we can with friends.

This weekend I did some canning for the first time ever! We picked peaches with out friend Natasha and her son Forest and they were SOOOO YUMMY! We ended up eating so many that by the time we started canning, I didn't have as many as I was hoping for. Tomorrow we are going to pick some more so hopefully this time I'll up with more jars. :)

And last, I have to share these recipes because we tried them the other night and we were pretty pleased.

Caution: these are not the healthiest of recipes, BUT, you have to splurge sometimes right?!

Click here for an easy Chicken Cordon Bleu and here for a tasty veggie mixture. The veggies were my favorite part, but next time I think I'll leave out the "cook in bacon grease" step. Just to make me feel a little better about my health!

A plus mes amis!


  1. I'm glad to see that you enjoyed the veggie mix! Those peaches look fantastic. Way to go with your first time canning. That is a LOT of peaches to process!

  2. bahaha I'm save way... skip the bacon grease. My grandma likes to put grease and/or butter in everything :) Is that your puppy? So cute! Hope ya'll are doing well :)
