Stew

Today I made stew with Italian bread and salad. I had fun making itIt was easy.

To make the stew I used*

  • Two small to medium or one large onion
  • Three pounds of chuck roast
  • Four carrots
  • Three cups of beef broth
  • 2 celery ribs
  • Six small potatoes
  • Two cloves of garlic
  • A dash of Worcester sauce
  • Oregano to taste
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Cut onions and put in crock pot, unwrap the roast and place in crock pot add pepper, oregano, and garlic and put on the lid and turn the crock pot on low. After about three hours add the potatoes, celery, carrots, and broth. When you are almost about to eat it (or slightly earlier) add the Worcester sauce. Serve in bowls and eat with you favorite Italian bread with garlic butter and salad!

*We just used what we had on hand to make it, you can add other things in it.

First Snowmen of Season

We had our first snow! It was very nice packing snow and we made snowmen. They were about 5 inches tall. The eyes are M&Ms and the nose is candy corn. When we were done we took out the candy and wrecked our snowmen with snowballs. I hope it snows soon so we can make more snowmen and have a snowball fight!

Periodic Table of the Cookies

For school I had to make a Periodic Table of the Cookies, it was fun!

We made some sugar cookies and cut them out with an doughnut hole maker, then we baked them. When they were done I frosted them with color codes. The blank cookies are elements that have been discovered but have not found enough to really prove that they found it.

We shared some and ate some. We gave our neighbors who have alpacas named after Star Wars characters Po(Potassium), and some other ones that sound like Star Wars names.

We have eaten all the cookies, and they were good! Maybe we can make some more soon.

Making a Rope

On Saturday we went to Five Medals and made a rope. It was easy, once we learned how.

Audrey, Megan, and I made the rope. There were two crank machines. They were a board nailed to another board that we stood on, the cranks are attached to hooks with some string on it. There was also a thing that looks like a mallet with four valleys. First Audrey cranked her crank, it had four hooks on it. I think it was to twist the string, then once that was done Megan took the mallet and walked slowly while I turned the rope. My thing had one hook and was to twist all of them together. When we where done they took small pieces and tied it so it would not fall apart.

We had a lot of fun at Five Medals, I hope to go again next year!

 

Answer to Guess What!

I am allergic to a bee or a wasp of some sort. I got stung by something and after about ten minutes I started to swell up and had lots of hives, it was not fun.

We did not know I was allergic to anything because I have been stung before and they never bothered me.  It was a surprise! When I started to itch, Momma gave me benedryl and ice.  It helped a little.

We went to the urgent care. They gave me medicine, more ice, and watched me for an hour.  Then I was okay to go home!  Daddy said it was a good pizza night 🙂

I now have an epi pen I am supposed to carry around.

This is what I looked like about 3 hours after I got stung and we were home again.

Not enlarged to show detail.

Momma found this recipe a few years ago, but we do not remember where. She let Megan and me make a batch because we were out.

  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1.5 tsp paprika
  • 1.5 tsp sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • +/- 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp dry mustard
  • 1.5 Tbl parsley flakes optional

Remember to shake it first or else it will not taste very good.

Use on popcorn and meat!
