Skillet Cornbread

For lunch today I made a new recipe called "Skillet Cornbread". I thought it tasted awesome!  It was very fast and easy to make. By the way, the picture isn't my cornbread. It was all gone too fast to get a photo. 

Skillet Cornbread

1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
4 tsp. oil (divided)

In a bowl combine the cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, beat the egg, milk, and 3 tsp. oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Heat remaining oil in a heavy 8" skillet over low heat. Pour batter into the hot skillet, cover and cook for 4-5 minutes. Turn and cook 4 minutes longer or until golden brown.

Serves 2

I'll add a note to this. It didn't take as long to cook as it said and I also didn't cover it.

Spring 2011

Here's some of the interesting things I've done this spring.

Worked at my church's Valentine Banquet.

Charis, Isaac, and I worked a "Coffee House" for the evening.

Most of the all the girls that worked at the banquet for the evening.

Having fun taking photos afterwards.


Ice Skating

I have to go Ice Skating every year.


Isaac's Graduation


Lawn & Garden Show

The garden show has the most beautiful flowers.

One of the gardens had some cute ducks in it.

My sister Addy, my friend Abby, and I in one
 of the gardens.


For the very first time I went bowling in March. I'll say this much...I fell in love with it.

This was one of the teams I was on. 


Having People Over

On the 17th of this month, we had some families over for lunch. Afterwards we took a hay rack ride. This is Anna, Sara, Debbie, me and Mary on the back of the hay wagon. It was kinda windy.

Well, I think that is all for now.

April 2010

I looking at photos from last April and I thought I'd post a couple.

On April 8th, 2010 we burned our pasture.

It was something we had never done before. Thankfully, some neighbors or ours came over and showed us how to do it. 

There's something really awesome about watching fire running to meet fire. 

And the other interesting thing I thought we did in April was have my 16th birthday party, of course. My sister Charis put it on and a bunch of girls came over to my Grandma's house to eat supper and play games. It is something I would definitely do again.

This is the whole group. 

Guess I'll never have a 16th birthday party again, huh?

  One thing I've been doing a lot lately is playing and practicing flute. I love playing the flute, but not all the time. Right now I practicing a lot for a high school flute competition in Wichita, Ks. So, I've gotten sick of playing so much. But, now I am used to all the more practicing I have to do and am really growing to like it. The nice thing is I'm getting a lot better from all of it. Although many flutists would put me to shame with all their practicing.
  I got my Pearl flute from Wichita Band Instruments about 2 years ago. If anyone is thinking of getting one, I would go there. They are very good and know what they're doing.

Anyway, I thought some of you might like to look at these links.

Paint Strips...

I thought this was such a cool card idea.


Whoever made these cards used paint strips. That's a very practical idea...

Don't they look good?

Or should I say "hair styles"?  I was looking at photos from last fall. My oldest sister got married in Sept and I was looking at photos of me getting my hair done. So I decided to put some on.

I think it looked very pretty from the back.

so is the front.

This is me and my sister Kelsey. Obviously the one who got married. :)
Isn't she pretty?


Me again, with my brother Isaac and sister Charis.

I think weddings are so much fun, even more so if you're a bridesmaid.

I'm very much looking forward to this time of year. Outdoor pictures are the best...

These photos were taken in our driveway. It is one of my favorite spots.
