She loves me, she reallly loves me... Here they are at the signing... Another big Thank You to Christine! I can't wait to start reading it! Don't forget to stop by her blog Great Oak Circle and say Hi! Be sure to tell her I sent you! I'm off to check my weekend projects... they've been drying, waiting for more embellishment! I'll be posting on them later... maybe tomorrow or Tuesday. Stay tuned!

It doesn't really look like the illustration... (not even close. it's much smaller) and I didn't break or injure it, but I've been dealing with ankle pain and swelling off and on for well over one year. It has been really aching the last few days and it was swollen enough to bother me at work today. I had my shoe off and one of the nurse practitioners asked me if I'd injured it after she saw the swelling. After a little discussion, she decided a brief course of steroids was in order. I'm to start them in the morning, so tonight I am reclining with my foot up and it has changed the plans I had in mind.
I have a small paper project in pinks planned, but after taking some anti-inflammatory medication and relaxing, I'm too tired to proceed with the crafting tonight.
I'm really excited. I've recently one two giveaways on other blogs (will post details when I receive them). One is a box of baking and craft supplies and the other is a signed copy of the new Pioneer Woman book! Woohoo!!!
Happy Monday friends! Thanks for all the comments on my posts. I love reading them!

So technically, it's not a real quiche, but let's not split hairs. This is good stuff!!! My daughter loves it, my roommate loves it, and I'm a hero when I make it!
I got the recipe from allrecipes in 2005. I thought I'd lost it forever, but found it when we moved in with Hasseman (that's hat man in German - story for another day), our roommate, and was excited to make it for him. I usually make it with ham. That's how Lumpkin and I prefer it, but he mentioned he'd like to try it with sausage, and since Lumpkin is at her Dad's this weekend, we had it with sausage.
Here's the recipe: Easy Quiche
2 cups milk
3/4 cup biscuit baking mix
1/2 cup butter softened
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese1 (10 ounce) package chopped frozen broccoli, thawed and drained
1 cup cubed cooked ham (or cooked sausage)
8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 10 inch quiche dish.
In a large bowl, beat together milk, eggs, baking mix, butter and parmesan cheese. Batter will be lumpy. Stir ion broccoli, ham and cheddar cheese. Pour into prepared quiche dish.
Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes, until eggs are set and top is golden brown.
Now, I may have mentioned before, that I rarely follow a recipe exactly... even when I use one. I do not use a quiche dish for this because I add extra ingredients to the above and sometimes throw in some that aren't on the list. Since Lumpkin wasn't here, I added onions this time.You should also season to taste. I use salt and pepper, a dash of seasoned salt, and garlic. You can use whatever you like! I also add more eggs... I used 4 or 5 for this one.

If you read my post a last week about Pay It Forward, you might remember that I learned about it from Michelle of Petite Michelle Louise
I have recieved my gifts from Michelle!!! The package is so sweetly wrapped in pattern paper, and the gifts are lovely! Thoughtfully handmade and perfect for me!
I loved each little piece and couldn't wait to look inside the tempting package. There were also some little bird shapes cut from book print, but I forgot to take a picture. Very sweet!!!
Thank you Michelle!!!!
I have not made my Pay It Forward gifts yet. I hope to get a start this weekend. You may ask yourself what I'm doing inside on such a beautiful day... I am listing items that Lumpkin no longer treasures on ebay (and it takes forever!), but I do have Bob Seger playing on the stereo as I work in the sunroom with the sliding glass door open allowing the outside to come in. (The roommate's cats are loving me for it!) Hopefully, I will be able to fit a little creating in while the light is still so fabulous. Gotta run now. I have a quiche baking in the oven. Happy Weekend, my bloggie friends!!!!!

What in the world??? When I called her, she said he'd been bitten by a spider... ewwwwww!!!
She took him to an immediate care and he was given antibiotics and instructed to go home, keep his arm elevated and put warm compresses on it. It looks much better tonight. I stopped in to see him and spend some time with The Best Dad EVER!
To know him is to love him! When the doctor asked him what he had planned to do, he said "I'm going to run my dozer." (he has a small paving business) Here's where you picture the doctor giving him the raised eyebrow and saying "Ummmm... NO you're NOT." I love it. He's always been very much the HE-man, but he generally bows to what his doctor tells him and even most of the time to the wishes of his three girls. I think he loves the attention, even when he acts like he doesn't.

Not really Lumpkin's thing, even though they look fabulous on her, so I'll be putting them in my etsy shop!
