Did you think I was on vacation?

Well, I wasn't!
Things have been especially busy lately. But the good news is ...THE SOCCER SEASON IS DONE! Let me repeat that just for fun...the soccer season is over. It was great, but it is always good to move onto the next thing. I have been busy finishing up a wedding and 3 professional sessions. And of course doings kids, and all the other things that come with them. (laundry, meals, etc.) Sewing again...Almost finished up on Christmas. (At least in the sewing department.) I even cleaned out my sewing closet. I sure do have a lot of scraps I need to piece together for a quilt! And, I do need to get real serious about this prom dress I need to make. We also just finished up a young women fireside. It turned out wonderful. Once again thanks to my great presidency. My oven died, so I had to get a new one. But it won't be in until the 12th. That is a long time for me to go without an oven. I bought a papa murphy's pizza the other day, jumped in the car and went to call the kids to tell them to preheat the oven, and then realized we didn't have one. So I stopped and bought burritos for dinner. The crock pot will be heavily used in the next few weeks, but doesn't do so good in the cookie and muffin department. Send us your favorite crockpot recipes.
Good Things:
1. Sewing
2. Doing nothing on a Saturday
3. Cool nights with lots of covers, and my window open

We love the garlic chicken pizzas from Papa Murphey's. Time to be creative, huh? Try this and tell me how it goes.
Cheesy Pizza Fondue
1 jar pizza sauce (29 oz.)
2 C. shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 C. Parmesan cheese
2 t. dried oregano
1 t. minced onion
1/4 t. garlic powder
Cook the above 4-6 hours or until cheeses are melted and sauce is hot. ( I bet 3 hrs. of church would do it.)
1 unsliced loaf of Italian bread cut into cubes.
Serve with bread cubes.
Dip and dine. Easy.

My favorite crockpot recipe is the chicken fajitas we learned to make at your house.

Chicken breasts
1 jar green salsa

Does it get easier than that?
