Rain across the lake

I took this from the car. We were on Highway 155 on the middle bridge going over Lake Palestine. Wish we could have stopped, but as soon as you get of the bridges the view is blocked. I wasn't driving! :)

Camera Critters and Scrumptious Sunday

Rusty and Bob, sharing!
Misty Dawn hosts Camera Critters. Please visit for a lot more great critter photos.

Mozzarella Meat Pie

1 lb. ground meat

1.4 C chopped onion

1.4 C chopped green pepper

1/4 C sliced mushrooms

1.2 tsp. oregano

salt and pepper to taste

1 small can tomato paste

4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese

1 can crescent rolls

Brown ground beef and drain off the fat. Add onion, green pepper and mushrooms. Cook until tender. Add spices, tomato paste and 1/2 of the cheese. Stir well.

Spray a pie plate with Pam and spread crescent roll pieces on the bottom and sides to form a crust. Add meat mixture and sprinkle on left over cheese. Bake at 375* for approx. 20 min.

I usually use the whole 1/4 C in the meat then sprinkle extra over the top. Probably too much cheese, what do you think?

Scrumptious Sunday is hosted by Meredith at Mercedes Rocks!
Join in or visit, the recipes are scrumptious!

Sad News

I was at a workshop at school today and a call came in to one of the teachers with some bad news. One of our district's 7th graders was swimming in a pond near his home and drowned. He was a special child that everyone knew. He was in my room when he was in first grade. We discussed memories of C. and mourned him.
Please pray for his family.

Rock Chalk Jayhawk

My sister and her family live in Kansas, which, of course, means they are KU fans. So when they came to visit on the 6th this month they brought a special surprise for Ethan. They outfitted him in KU garb. He loves it! See the big cheesy grin. He has to have his chocolate milk in the Jayhawk cup and we play ball incessantly. We had a lot of fun with my sister and fam, wish they lived closer!
