Just some stuff!

I never know what to call these multi-subject posts, hence the name, Just some stuff!
My birthday was in March and my best friend sent me a subscription to Light and Tasty (Taste of Home). Well it took a while to receive it and when it finally came it wasn't Light and Tasty (which has been changed to Healthy Cooking) like it should have been but it was Simple and Delicious. Well I really needed Light and Tasty (Healthy Cooking) but I'm pretty happy with Simple and Delicious. Wheww, that was a mouthful.

Here's a great little recipe we found in the magazine, and fun too. The perfect thing to make with the kids on a slow morning and how happy they'll be!

Oh guess what?? While our friends were here we went to Austria to shop and let them see it a little, guess what we found?? Okay so the picture gives it away a bit but look at those things!! Do you see the Dr.Pepper? I mean really do you have any idea what a miracle that is? When we were in the store and Johnny found them I almost screamed, not so much because I love Dr. Pepper (which I do) but just the sheer shock. Bro. Rasbeary bought all 12 that the store had, how nice of him and he gave them all to us. Awww!! Thanks Bro. James!

Anyhow, also I found Miracle Whip which is a miracle in itself and last but not least, PECANS! I couldn't believe it. Do you know that Croats don't even know what Pecans are. I was so pleased to find these, actyally pleased isn't the word, ecstatic is more like it. So next time you eat a tuna sandwhich with pecans and Miracle whip in it, (which btw is delish if you havn't tried it) and pour that bottle of Dr. Pepper over that ice; think of us poor missionaries who struggle to make it without the needed essentials! HA! Anyhow, God's so good to care about the little things!Hey look what I have... I feel like a school girl showing off her new toy. Clover bias tape makers!!
If you remember this post, I was showing off some new material I wanted to use for an apron. Well I never did it, never started the apron because I had coordinating material and I wanted to use it for the bias tape but it's next to impossible to make bias tape with out a bias tape maker so, I'm all set. I'll be posting about that really soon!

Oh I had to share this with you, isn't she sweet. That's KD, she's our Golden (white) Retriever. She brings me her toy (which used to be a good round rope thinggy with a tennis ball attached until she decided to redesign it) when she wants to play, she's so special!

Anyhoo y'all, I'll leave you today with this pretty little shot I took in Varazdin, I would love to have about 6 of these little pots sitting around my yard. Love the painted tin can!

Special thanks to all you gals who went by to look at my new Windows Around Europe blog. I know it's weird but honestly so am I!

Have a great weekend y'all!!

  4. Tori,
    As I was looking at your blog tonight, I realized what is so special about it. It is so obvious to me now, by the title and the post, that you have made a wonderful pleasant home away from home. A haven of rest from this world. After reading for a few months, God just now showed me in His perfect time, that it is possible to make a warm welcome home no matter where you are, even in Nepal. As I write this I am flooded with so many emotions, packing up, leaving home, saying good byes. All things that seem impossible to do. But just like God made it plain with your blog, He will help me with the things that seem impossible in His time.
    Thank you for being a part of God showing me how Awesome He is.

  5. I am so glad that you found the Dr.Pepper and Miracle whip and pecans. I felt so bad for you. I put pecans in my tuna when I have them, also. We like it that way.

    I love the flowers and the painted can. The doggie is adorable. He looks so sweet.

    I loved your new blog and will go back time and time again.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement you left for me on my blog, they were so appreciated. Have a great weekend. connie from Texas

  7. Hi Tori! I could live without the Dr. Pepper and pecans, but I sure would miss my Miracle Whip!
    Your dog looks like a white version of our 'black' golden retriever!
    Have a nice weekend!

  8. Too bad that it wasn't the magazine that you were expecting, but I'm glad that you were able to make do with what you got!

  9. Pecans in a tuna sandwich? I'll have to try that! One of our fave salads is Romaine lettuce, diced apples, pecans (or walnuts) and miracle whip. Yum!

  10. Thanks for the visit!

    It is always a good reminder that we take so much for granted. I remember in highschool traveling to the East Coast (having always lived in the Northwest) and not being able to find Pepsi in a fountain. It was so small, and yet, we were all ecstatic to find one place that carried Pepsi. Now to realize how many don't ever have it at all...
