Hi there!!

As you can see I am happily and proudly using the bag that Teresa

bring quilting projects that I am working on for my lunch breaks and
afternoon breaks.
Thanks again!!


Ukraine Bag!

Hi, Teresa and David.
We got 2 bags and I am thankful to you. These bags is perfect.
Yesterday I and my daughter collected chestnuts in this bag for further making a drug. Skin of chestnut is insisted on a alcohol - is good drug for joints.
Thank you.

I attach a photo (with my daughter) to this letter.


And then…

…there were kale chips. Wash and chop the kale, spread on cookie sheet, spray with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt, 325 for 12 minutes. Done. Bam. So so so good. If you haven't had these, it is a must. Yes, as a matter of fact, I did eat 1/2 the pan. Don't judge. Teresa


Fresh, Colorado grown, hand picked veggies from my neighbor. Monday just got better! Teresa

Muffins on Monday

Lately, I have been trying to tweak my Aunt Frances' muffin recipe to make it even more healthy and give my kids a jumpstart on the day.

Zucchini Carrot Yummy Muffins

3 eggs
1/4 c. butter, melted
1-4 oz. jar of apple/sweet potato baby food (I used Earth's Best organic)

1/2 c. melted coconut oil
2 c. coconut sugar
2 c. zucchini, grated

1 c. carrots grated
3 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. whole wheat flour

1/2 c. coconut flour
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/2 c. water
1 c. walnuts (optional*)

Beat eggs. Melt butter. Melt coconut oil. Mix butter, coconut oil and baby food together. Add eggs. Add coconut sugar, nuts*, zucchini, carrots and vanilla. Mix well. Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and baking powder. Mix well. Pour into muffin liners in a muffin pan. Sprinkle a little cinnamon/coconut sugar on the top. Bake 325 degrees for about 45 minutes or until top is golden brown and tooth pick comes out clean. ENJOY!

Did you know that you can use coconut sugar 1:1 for cane sugar in most recipes and not even notice a difference? A nice healthier alternative that I have been enjoying.

The taste test on these muffins was overwhelming, everyone loved them, even my kids! Teresa

Sewed a pile of bags. Not pictured is the other pile of 80+ light weight bags I made for Bagette Dad for shipping purposes…
 Made a chair cover with multiple pockets for one of Little Man's friends…
 And one for Little Man too…
What are you up to this week? Let me know! Teresa

Better World Books

Have you heard of Better World Books? Bagette Marianne told me about them. I ordered 6 books and am very happy! They are all used (who cares?) but they donate one book for every one you buy. Yay! My books all cost only $3 each and the shipping is FREE…world-wide! My only tiny complaint is that it took the books longer to ship than I expected. But, if you aren't in a hurry, go for it! Teresa
