I missed joining this fine and fun group of ladies last week. But I won’t miss it this week! For more Friday Fave Five, please stop by and visit Susanne.
Well I guess one of my Faves is a snow day today. It’s 8:30 and I just woke up! It’s always nice to not have to rush out the door in the mornings! Sipping coffee and reading blogs on a snow day. Nice!!!!
Last weekend was fun, The Inventor had a sleepover with 5 other girls. Of course we had the sleepover while Drums was away playing drums for a Mission Fest and SportTman was on a Winter Retreat. I enjoyed having the silly 12 &13 year old girls over. They made pancakes and french fries at 1:30 am, “decorated” one of the girls in tons of rolls of TP, dipped their hands in a hot parrafin wax hand spa,and watched the movie “Up.”
These YUMMY, simple “homemade” donuts are always a fave on a cold and snowy day. In my opinion you can NEVER go wrong with hot, fried dough, rolled in powdered sugar or cinnamon and sugar! The recipe simply requires a tube of refrigerator biscuits. Cut out the middle of a biscuit ( I just use the lid of a vitamin bottle, it’s the perfect size), fry in about 2 cups of oil, then roll while still hot in powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar. Trust me, you WILL eat them as you are rolling them in the sugar mixtures, so hard to wait for these!
Coffee is always a favorite for me. I have been enjoying this Green Mtn. French Toast coffee immensely as of late!
Last night I was helping SportTman write a short paper on the influence of the Monroe Doctrine on foreign policy. And since Drums, the social studies teacher, was NOT home. I had to limp my way through the internet to help him out. I love the MANY great reference sources available on the internet! The days of the ole World Book Encylopedia are LONG gone! Loved this site and this one! Our school district has a membership to both of these sites through the school library. So research was made simple! And let me tell you, I now know all you ever wanted to know about the Monroe Doctrine!
