New Year


It's 2012 and this year my word of the year is blessing.  I am going to strive to be a blessing to all those I meet. A blessing to my family, a blessing to my friends, and a blessing to my neighbors (which effectively includes everyone else in the world.)

I hope in some small way you will be blessed by my blog this year.  I hope to focus a bit more on my food posts and I'd like to get a bit more creative in my cooking and baking.  I'll continue to post once a month over at Today's Housewife on Faith (in fact, I'll be there tomorrow talking about blessings), but I'll still be here, hopefully getting back into more of a routine now that the holidays have passed.

On a good note, my hubby will be sticking around for a few extra months.  The deployment has been pushed back, I can't give you an exact date, but I am glad to say we'll actually have 2 anniversaries in a row together.  It's been a while since that has happened.

On to the cooking!  Since I happen to get up every morning with my amazing husband and make him breakfast and lunch, and then have 2 hours until the kids wake up, I killed a little time on Pinterest this morning.  If you haven't read about my love of Pinterest before, go ahead and go read about it here.  (And check out my Pinterest boards here.)  While I was there, I saw the cutest pic of cinnamon rolls that were in a heart shape.  Very cute and very easy.  I happened to have one extra can of cinnamon rolls just sitting in my refrigerator so guess what the kids got for breakfast this morning?


They thought this was one tasty treat!  I have to say, they are some of the easiest kids to please.  They seriously thought I had slaved over making them in this special shape.  They also thought they were twice the size of a normal cinnamon roll.  When I told them that each one was just one normal Grands roll unrolled and rerolled into the shape of the heart, they hardly believed me.

Tonight for dinner we're having pork chops with sweet potato fries and green beans.  A nice homey meal on a cold day.  I'm really in the mood for chili, but that will have to wait until after cooking day next week.

So blessings to you in this new year!  I hope you enjoy the recipes that I will be sharing with you and the tidbits of faith that I will share.
