Week 26 Sunday (7/13/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Blueberry Cornbread Mini-Muffins
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         This is another recipe that I can make if I change a major ingredient. Blueberries are out for me, which is said because these look so good. I will try these but substitute chocolate chips. Now this changes the nutritional value as well as how well they fit into a breakfast, but that is just a consequence for a non-fruit eating girl.  Try these muffins as most people love a blueberry muffin!

Trivial Triffles

         I was watching reruns of 19 Kids and Counting and the episode involved the kids getting motion sick. I have never had this problem, but my friend Jenny frequently gets ill on the bus ride for a field trip. I think my sister, Susan used to get carsick when we were kids. I can’t imagine feeling nausea on a long ride. I feel blessed that I can read, knit, and even write in the car when I am the passenger.

Memory Musings
         Kidnapping is a horrible crime and one that is devastating to a family. In 2012, the Department of Justice reported that 797,500 children were reported missing.
         Our family had a close call with my nephew, Shane. When my sister, Susan and her husband, Rick, moved to the farm, they had a close call with a kidnapping attempt. Shane rode a bus to school when he was in kindergarten. The bus always let him off at the end of a very long driveway to the farm. One day, he got off of the bus and after the bus pulled out, a car pulled into the driveway and the driver tried to lure Shane into the car. Shane ran away toward his house. The driver fled and was never found.
         The humor in this horrible event was Shane’s story about what he should have done. Shane said he should have karate chopped the guy. Of course after the laughter died down, Susan gently told him that he did the right thing and that the karate chop would have been the wrong thing to do.  Kids really do say the funniest things!
