|Sorry this didn't rotate, but here is another of our Chines red noodle beans. We are up to about 8pound of them now. They have a great meaty flavor I don't find with Green or yellow beans.|
See ya next time, blessings ~Beth Ann

I know I haven't posted in about a week, but it has been crazy here, more so than usual : ) Went out to the garden last night with oldest son and took a little tour, and took some pic's to share as well.
Here are a couple of my bottle neck gourds, hanging off the North side of the house.
Here hubby is holding his harvest from this morning, dig those crazy red noodle beans!
Just one of our 7 tomato plants. Visitors enjoy picking some to take home with them, it has become a tradition.
Here Z is holding one of biggest tomatoes yet, it will be great on a BLT!
One of our many Luffa squash, hanging off the south side of the house. I plan to make soap and sponges out of them, for Christmas.

Have you ever lost something and never even knew it until someone else found it? Exactly! Anyway, that's what happened with some camping pictures I dropped off at Rite - aide. I forgot all about them until they called to let me know that like 3 months was the max for holding pic's. So I went and picked them up this past week -end, out of idle curiosity.
Here is some additional photo's of our first camping trip of the season, back on Mother's day, at Defeated Creek.
Here is a shot of all the kids, well not all. Z was home working and the other little girl belonged to our friend who was camping the next site over.
DC has great sandcastle building sand, as evident in these two beauty's built by our kids : )
Here the twins show off their new fishing poles before breaking them in.
Hubby proudly displaying his Piggly Wiggly cup that we brought back from South Carolina last year. It really makes the coffee taste better : )
I love this pic of E, it gives me a glimpse of what he will look like when he is older, he is 5 in this pic.
We will be heading off to there again in about 3 weeks. Hold onto your hats, there will be more pic's to share or Bob's not your uncle! LOL

I also wanted to take a minute to thank God for his mercy and blessings. We were having a tough week here financially and spiritually. I spent much time petitioning God over the week -end for some answers and the wisdom to see His will. I will just say that it happened and I am once again blown away. He lead us to his will in many areas that we were waffling on and once again HE provided DH with a side job to help us make it another week. We are not eating steak every night, wearing designer cloths or even getting all our bills paid on time. But we have never missed a meal, still have a roof over our head and the love of our family and friends and the one true God. Please read Matthew 6: 19-34 and give God all the glory.
Blessings, Beth Ann

We are still working on our leptin/lo-carb diet here, as well as my son's fibro. So it is all pretty much organic and natural for us. Laura's lean ground beef, antibiotic free chicken and beef and free range eggs. You get the point. This is pricey so we tend to have these simple meals. Fortunately the Laura's has been on sale most the summer at our Kroger. We are even incorporating some meatless meals, such as lentils and veggies. Remember that lentils when paired with brown rice make a complex carbohydrate which is healthy and full of protein. I also find that mushrooms give veggie meals such as veggie taco's a 'meat' like taste and feel. My favorite are the baby portabella and they are the star of my veggie egg rolls!
