Almond Croissants

I made these for life group at church this past Sunday and am so glad I did.  I didn’t have a chance to try the pastry part because they were devoured but the icing was AMAZING ( I might have licked the spoon when I was done drizzling). 

2 cans (8 ounces) crescent rolls
6 ounces almond paste
1 cup powdered sugar
3-4 tablespoons milk
½ teaspoon almond extract
Sliced almonds

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray cookie sheet with nonstick spray.
Separate dough into triangles.
Slice almond paste into equal amounts.
Place on the larger end of the triangle.
Roll up and place on the cookie sheet.
Bake 12-14 minutes till golden brown.
Cool for 5 minutes.
While cooling whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and almond extract.
Drizzle over the top of the crescents and top with sliced almonds.
Serve warm!

Menu for 10-31 to 11-6

Monday is Halloween so we will be out trick or treating and I won’t be able to make dinner.  Belle is being Pocahontas, she put a lot of thought into it.  The boys decided at the last minute to be a power ranger (we already had the costume) and an army man.

Tuesday we are going to the opening night of Santa Land, a Christmas light park, near where we live.  The past two years we have been the first people to go through the park for the entire season and we are hoping to do that again tonight.  I love going opening night because there is no one else there and we can move through the park at our own pace.  This has turned into a fun family tradition for us and the kids look forward to it every year… and so do we.  Eating at Cracker Barrel afterwards is also a fun treat. 

Wednesday night hubby and I are going to a chili cook off that his company gave us tickets too.  There will be all kinds of vendors set up with free food, wine and beer!  How great is that?  The fat girl in me is super excited about this. 

Thursday night I am going to a painting party with my mom and best friend.  We are learning to paint a scarecrow…  I am not the best painter ever so this might be interesting. 

Hopefully Friday I will be able to make dinner again but we will be working on our old house to get it ready to rent out.  I REALLY need to start getting some money for it. J

Peanut Noodles

8 ounces spaghetti
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup hot water
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar

Cook spaghetti and drain.
While noodles are cooking let’s get the sauce going.
Heat vegetable oil over low heat and stir in the onion powder.
Increase the heat to medium and add in peanut butter, soy sauce, water, vinegar, and sugar.
Stir until combined and then remove from heat.
Toss with spaghetti.

Top with cashews (I don’t like raw peanuts but I wanted some crunch so I added cashews to the top).

My Crazy Wonderful Life

The past week has been probably one of the busiest of my life.  Last Tuesday I was in charge of a fall carnival for my PTA group.  I got all the games together, prizes, workers, etc.  We had an amazing turn out so I was beyond thrilled but exhausted by the end of it.  Add to that the fact that we were moving out of our home of 7 years and you can see why I was a little too busy to blog.  I am a neat freak and all the boxes and disorganization pushed me to my limit. 

We spent the weekend moving and I am happy to say that every box has been unpacked!!!  I am also beyond thrilled with how well the process went and am so excited to start enjoying our new home.  Before we relax though we have to get our other house ready to rent out, and we are also in the process of buying another house so I expect things to slow down sometime around Christmas.  
Here are a few pictures of the kiddos enjoying the pool…. In October.

After some time in the pool we enjoyed a movie in the media room.

This week that we are in now is an exciting one for our town.  It is Yamboree week.  Thousands and thousands of people pour into town to celebrate.  We will have carnival rides, livestock shows, shop projects, farmers markets, parades, floats, bands, and the best food EVER!!!


Have a great week friends and be a blessing to someone.
