Beef Sliders w/ Pickled Onions

Posted on May 22, 2015 by Cynthia LaFourcade, Sister #6245

Kick-off the first holiday weekend of the warm season ahead with these tasty little beef burgers, aka sliders, topped with pickled red onions and dressed out with a homemade jalapeño mayo. Are you tempted?

Before I tell you more about these dynamos in a bun, lest we remember the real reason for the long weekend. It’s in honor of Memorial Day. It’s a celebration and remembrance of our fallen heroes who served our country proud. But it goes beyond that. It’s about celebrating and honoring their families that have had to move on, to be strong in light of great loss. That’s what’s so wonderful about the American people. You can knock us down, but we’ll get right back up and fight the fight. So please take a moment of silence, or better yet, spoken acknowledgement with family and friends of the heroic sacrifices men and women have made in the armed forces. I tend to say my “thank you’s” all throughout the year. Will you do the same? ... Read more →

Vintage Trailer Sweetness...

Posted on May 22, 2015 by Karen L. Bates, Sister #377

This vintage trailer just pops with color. I love it! Well, yes, I could be partial since it is the same as my trailer just a couple years newer ... a 1971.

I think it is amazing how different it looks in another color combo. Sweet! ... Read more →

Goosenecks State Park

As if seeing those amazing petroglyphs on our hike earlier in the day weren’t enough, we then make a pit stop at Goosenecks State Park.

Now, I’ve definitely seen photos of this area before, but I truly didn’t even know where they were taken AND that we were so close to this area too. What a surprise! ... Read more →

Abundance is a Blessing.

Posted on May 21, 2015 by Alicia Winkler, Sister #5232

Today, my daughter, Isabelle, who is 13, helped to remind our lunch table that life should be more simple. And she is right.

Everyday we are overwhelmed with choices and complexities. My family and I have tried to choose the road of simplicity and balance. It doesn’t always come easily. Perhaps this is more primitive than most. Maybe not wanting a shiny new car and going out to eat often is strange to some. To our home, it is normal. Sometimes I wish we could be even more simple. Life, after all, doesn’t need to be complicated by the wants of this world.

It’s cool out today, 57 degrees, probably 20 degrees cooler than last Thursday, though I cannot be sure. It’s Spring. What do you do, besides thank the Lord it isn’t colder! lol! I have been in the garden everyday since we returned from the Ozarks; tending, weeding, planting. Until yesterday. The rain made me lazy. Today was much the same. Still, the beets needed thinned and the kids and I needed lunch. So out I went, basket in hand ... Read more →
