Yummy Recipe

I've been following Lil Runner's Blog and am dying to try this recipe! Yum! It has to be delicious and if it helps my children and husband eat veggies? I'm all about it!

Butternut Squash Quinoa Doughnuts

This was adapted from the banana quinoa muffins.

2/3 c quinoa flour (toasted ground quinoa)
1/2 c oatmeal
1 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 to 3/4 c butternut squash
2 T maple syrup (might want to add more)
2 T coconut oil
1 T flaxseed (ground)
1/2 to 3/4 c almond milk
1 tsp vanilla

1-2 T Coconut oil
1-2 T Cinnamon
1-2 T Sugar

Mix the flours, oatmeal, powder, soda and cinnamon in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, add the squash, maple syrup, coconut oil, flax, almond milk (start with 1/2 c) and vanilla. Microwave 20-30 seconds and let sit about 5 minutes. Add the wet to the dry. If the mixture is too dry, add more milk and/or squash. Bake at 325 for 13-15 minutes till set.

Dip one side into coconut oil then cinnamon sugar. Let cool. These aren't too sweet so the topping makes them!

My friend, Becky, found a slime recipe here. I jumped all over the opportunity to try it and it is supplying endless fun and happy giggles from my kitchen as I type. Super easy to make (Becky's 2 year old made it, with help of course) and really cheap!

You want me to play w/ water? OOOOOOkkkk! Can do!
Wait a minute....Mr Miles wasn't so sure about the clumps suddenly forming in the water.

Chloe, "take a picture of my slime!"
Tyler loves putting slime on his nose, while Paige prefers to show it off in a ball.

Roling it out....better than playdough!

Smacking it down!

Ewwwwww a snake!

A Few Fabulous Photos

Just adding a few photos of my little family. Life is fabulous and God is so good to us.

Tyler loves hats, puzzles, super heroes and garage sales. He's a little man after my own heart!

Little Liam is determined to get comfy in his swing.

Randy and Randi Keira at a really cool little restaurant, True Grit, in Ridgway, Colorado. The original movie filmed quite a few scenes there. 

Look at me! I'm squirmy!

Keira loved being a flower girl at her Auntie Joanna's wedding.

Tyler was all grins in his little tux walking down the isle as one of the ring bearers.

I can't believe this uploaded sideways, but I love the photo so it's staying. Liam is always holding his hands in front of him. We call him a "little Buddha".

Camping in Ridgway, Colorado. One of my favorite places. Full of special memories for me.

Again. Not sure why this uploaded sideways, but this is an early morning shot down at Memorial Park. We enjoyed the hot air balloon festival and some glazed doughnuts.

Liam Laughing

The best sound in the world is your little one laughing from his/her gut. :)
