this is just a reminder, that we all need recycle!!! if we don't and we keep consuming like we do now...my grandchildren and yours, are going to be LIVING ON A GARBAGE DUMP!!! and i don't know about you but i really don't want that to happen. So please please please,
buy things with less packaging, bring your canvas bags to the store, and just stop consuming as much... we will all be better off in the end!
I just had to vent a little... thanks for letting me. We do not have mandatory recycling here where i live and its very frustrating for me. I pay for a recycling service to come pick up my recycling, and I think its worth it...but most people don't and therefore they don't recycle. so there trash cans are piled to the rim, i mean almost overflowing every week.... i mean seriously, how can you have so much that is going to the landfill.. but people do. most weeks our can is about 1/4 to 1/2 full and we have a family of six... we recycle everything we can(oh, i was appalled when my recycle guy stopped me in the drive way and said they don't take the strawberry containers, are you kidding me...thats another story)we compost all our fruit and veggie scraps, and i always try to choose things that aren't packed with tons of stuff!! i know it can be hard... but i am challenging everyone who reads this blog to do the CUT YOUR TRASH IN 1/2 CHALLENGE... COME ON YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Its funny, that we want to be out in the great outdoors, enjoying nature, but we bring almost our entire household when we do it. It took me forever to pack up all the food and necessary items for our camping trip. (i thought "this is so much work"). We did have a great time, and the kids were entertaining themselves without any help from me. I can't believe how 4 children could get so dirty, and go through all their clothes on the first day. But the most important part is memories made with good friends, that will last forever!!!

Well you can also get extra yummies, and this last week I bought a 16 lbs box of cherries for $14.50, which is about 90 cents a lbs. great deal.....IF..... you have time to do something with them. I mean after you have eaten your fill.
try no to eat the whole thing...share, I know its hard!!!!
sorry, I do not have a picture of the busy women's pie.... We ate it!!! you will just have to make it yourself!!!
ok so I am very curious to know how many people say a cube of butter or a stick???? I have always said cube, probably because that is what my mom always says, but its not really a cube, its more of a rectangle... any way is it a regional thing... let me know what you call it!!!

Normally I would have never stopped, my husband is a police officer and he would have freaked, but now I'm so glad I did, I would have never got to meet such a sweet family, that really was just like mine, just much, much, more adventurous.
