Taste Test Thursday - Protein Waffles

I asked for this recipe from my friend, Julie 2 years ago, and finally made them for the first time yesterday! They are a healthy and good waffle! Here is my breakfast - which was yummy and filling - I topped it with 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and 1/2 cup of blueberries...And here is the easy peasy recipe!

Protein Waffles

1/3 cup oats (I used Quick Oats)
1/3 cup cottage cheese dry curds (shown)
1/3 cup egg whites (I did 1 cup measurements for all of the above; 1 cup of egg whites was 7 large eggs)
1 tsp. Vanilla
Sweetner to taste
- I used 2T. of the following Z Sweet Sweetner - not something I keep on hand always, but our favourite Discount Store had bags of this at 2 for $1, so we bought about 10 - should have bought more!

Add everything to your blender and blend well. Let stand for a few minutes until thick - while you warm your waffle iron up. Store in the fridge or freeze a large batch.

I made this recipe using 1 cup of each of the 3 main ingredients, 2T 'sugar', and 1T vanilla - which made about 3 waffles (4 squares each).

Enjoy and if you have a recipe to share today - link up to Encouragement for Today!


Muffin Tin Monday ~ New Years

Our muffin "tin" was to celebrate the New Year!
We sang to the tune of Happy Birthday - "Happy New Year to you, Happy New Year to you, Happy New Year Two Thousand and Ten, Happy New Year to you!"
I just mixed up a small batch of rice krispie treats and used the sparklers I specifically bought last week for this... oh and sprayed a bit of Silly String on the table to set the mood and laughter!Happy New Year!
Can't wait for the new things Michelle talks about presenting in 2010!

Muffin Tin Monday ~ Holidays

it's been awhile since I participated in MTM - about time, I'd say! With my Son home from school for 2 weeks, I thought it would be a perfect time to have a MTM Meal - plus I have to use my two fun muffin tins I got from Target!
We put some Christmas Rice Krispies in the tree muffin tin -and in this one I made a Gingerbread Warm Milk and we ate leftover Cheese Ball from our Family Gathering on Sunday, some cheese cut in the shapes of a Santa Boot (or stocking as my Middle Son says) and a Candy Cane shape. They thoroughly enjoyed this lunch!For more great ideas, visit Her Cup Overfloweth
Merry Christmas!

Fingerprint Friday

There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:
I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know its true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of God

So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them?
Happy Harvest!

Muffin Tin Monday

Today's theme is Kebabs, so this is what we did for a quick snack... apples with caramels cut in half, I saw this (toothpick idea) in a magazine last month and knew I wanted to do it with the kids at some point...and for all you Canadians out there - HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!


Works For Me ~ Book Orders

Every few weeks my Son gets Scholastic Orders sent home with him from school. This starts in preschool and continues for years and years! I love Scholastic and I love ordering books from time to time.

In my City we have a Library that is part of a Regional Grouping of Libraries that share a data base and books/DVDs/CDs...etc. I can sit in the comfort of my own home on this handy dandy computer and request items that I'd like my Family to have - this great system then gets these items delivered to my local library and sets them aside for me to pick up! How awesome is that?!

Well, last week I sat with all 5 of the different Scholastic Papers that came bundled together for my First Grader and opened up my Library's Browser and started to request books I thought would be a good read this month! Ha! What a great concept!!
These are some of the books (listed in these flyers) I requested late last week and picked up already today!To save a buck this month and next, see if your library has some of the books of interest!
Works for me!

Decluttering ~ The Living Room

This week the Fly lady schedules the Living Room as our room to work on.

I must say this is alot harder than i thought it would be... 15 minutes a day - really how hard can that be? Well being in the midst of renos and trying to keep a house with 7 people clean, and still get everyone to all their activities makes it a bit harder to find those 15 minutes.

I am happy to say 2 bathrooms are done. I did spend a bit of time on the master bedroom last week. I rearranged everything and in the process got rid of a bit, though NOT as much as I'd like.

So now we move on to the living room. This is probably one of the worst rooms in my house as it includes the computer area. That is my most dreaded place to clean.

I challenge you to find a tiny bit of time this week so get rid of at least 30 minutes worth of decluttering. I have a group coming tomorrow that will take away used items. Hopefully I can get another bag ready for them.


Word Filled Wednesday ~ joy, peace and hope

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13My Dad called yesterday to simply read this verse to me over the phone -
he had heard a speaker on Sunday that suggested the congregation affirm this
verse this week with their Family and Friends.

Blessings,Please visit Forever His who is hosting this weeks WFW.
