I'm not much of a "girly" girl

As as kid, I preferred my brother's toys to my sisters. While I wasn't into Ninja Turtles or anything, I was into Lego's, football, bikes, and dirt. About the only girly thing I enjoyed was light bright and crafts. I only did the My Little Pony thing because my best friend in 5th grade was into them, so I tried to be girly... but I never eally enjoyed barbies or ponies. Just because it's not my thing, I have not deprived Ladybug of her feminine side. She has a couple dolls and I do plan to have Nick make her a doll house in the near future.

So the other day I got this awesome garage from Freecycle for GreenEyes and a bunch of little people and trucks for cheapy cheap on Ebay. In her mother's footsteps, Ladybug won't quit playing with her brother's toys. I suppose these toys were meant to be shared.

I hope you guys are all outside enjoying this AMAZING weather!! :)

Well, since I don't have any girls- then my friends girls become my spoiled girls. LOL... W/ 3 girls in my house- I wasn't the most girly out of us 3, but now I think I'm more girly than I have ever been. So ladybug is on the list- oh she will have dolls, oh yes, there will be dolls and pink!! Just wait till June or when I see you next. (now there's incentive!) LOL

Pixel Scrapper July 2017 Blog Train

This was a lot of fun!  Most of my artist endeavors have fallen to the wayside now that the kids are out for summer.  I was able to squeeze out a little time for myself.  I needed a few backgrounds to scrapbook our trip to Florida this year, so I created the backgrounds and elements below.  Enjoy!

Low Fat, Vegan, Spicy Senegalese Peanut Soup

I had the most amazing vegan soup at Revolutionary Soup the other week.  I haven't stopped thinking about how delicious it was... and that was two weeks ago.  I wondered if I could come up with something similar on my own.  I scoured the web and found some delicious looking recipes but none of them were quite right.  I ended up having to play around quite a bit.

While experimenting, I tried versions with lite coconut milk.  I figured if it worked, I'd then work on finding a lower fat alternative but it really didn't add much at all to the dish.  I ended up omitting it all together.  By contrast, the curry powder was absolutely critical.  It added incredible depth to the soup.  I used Tandoori seasoning (my favorite curry powder blend by Penzey's).

I was able to reduce the fat in this dish quite a bit by using PB2 in lieu of full fat peanut butter.  Powdered peanut butter has all of the flavor of peanut butter but 85% less fat.  You can find it at the link I provided or…
