Barley Soup and Snowy mornings

Hello World

It is only Oct 6.. it was not even two weeks ago when we said goodbye to summer. I was looking forward to the harvest season.You could feel fall in the air. The kids and I have been dreaming of apple pies, pumpkins and cider. So much to look forward to in the fall season....but the last two days have been cold. I have the heat turned on already. I am so tempted to get the fireplace going too.

This morning we woke up and there was snow on the mountains. Can you see it in the picture. Off course my son decided to take off his jacket at the bus stop. I noticed and yelled after I took the picture heheee ! As for my daughter she out grew all her jacket wah wah !! Well I stuffed her into something one size too small and called it good. Her head and hands did not grow much yay !  So this weekend I am off to do some winter shopping.
I cancelled my appointment with the personal trainer at the gym and decided to work at home.Work in real estae that is and not a work out. I have been running around like a mad woman and needed some time to catch up. So yesterday missy was as clingy as could be and I left the school and wanted to cry ( No I did not, teach me how to again ) It was heart breaking having the teacher peel he off my legs and me walking away. Yes she is the new velcro strap in town. I thought that was supposed to end when we started pre-school and here we are in kindergarten and she is still attached to me. She loves he mama... but I am ready to stretch the cord to all day in school ( wohoooo for me ) I feel guilty that she is in school all day but I really shouldn't , shoud I ???

So yesterday I bribed her and told her if she did not cry when I left then she could have a friend come over and bake cookies..What was I thinking...Oh dear..So I will bake cookies and enjoy the afternoon with her. I had to get dinner under control so I took out the crock pot today.

So much has been going on in the Real Estate world. That is another discussion. So if you need to know about short sales and having the deficiency waived please ask even if you are in a different state. 

Anyway back to cooking for now. This is a super duper easy recipe that I stole from a very good friend. See pictures below and recipe below that.
