Good morning! It's our last day of school before Spring Break starts. I realized lastnight that I have yet to complete Easter shopping so need to get that organized & done today before the children are home. Eeeek. Dinner? I'm not sure yet. I just woke up :) Be back in a few w/coffee & breakfast & then we'll chat about it.

Lisa, I remember those days! I didn't go all out like you do at Christmas. Our children loved dying the eggs!

That was my thought process yesterday, Easter shopping! I'm glad to announce I stealthily went out yesterday and completed my task! Have fun shopping :)

I have the step grandson tomorrow all day and we're going to dye some eggs. I haven't done that in years. Looking forward to it.

I decided not to go the traditional Easter basket route this year & put their goodies in something more useful & practical. For some reason, I've had the hardest time coming up w/something for my teenage daughter. Isn't that crazy? I think I'm going to look for a large make-up bag for our trip or a beach bag of some sort that she can also use for practice to keep a change of clothes, shoes, etc in. All of the kids want books in a series they're each reading & I totally forgot about those so a trip to Barnes & Noble is probably in order.

Beach bag is a cute idea, Lisa! Flip flops, beach towel and sun glasses!

Okay ~hangs head~ Confession time . . . The Easter Bunny brought decorated eggs to our house and hid them, for many years. I did them the night before, after the kids went to bed, while I was cleaning and cooking. I'd drop eggs in the dye, go off to do something, and come back to switch them out. Isn't that horrible?! My kids didn't get to dye eggs until we were doing it with our little friend a few years ago . . .

And, NOT doing baskets at all this year )= Did not do stockings at Christmas, for the first time. SO sad! But, I am going to get little, tiny baskets, and make a candy for each one - chocolate free butterfinger bars, naked pretzel turtles, chocolate dipped potato chips . . . And I'll hide a dozen money filled eggs . . . [$2-20.00]

I have looked for recipes for hot cranberry tea that are simple and don't involve a lot of time. This is it! My mother is a cook who adds until it tastes good. This is what she came up with. Increase or decrease quantities to suit your own taste.

Day 4 and I'm still sick. I have congestion in my head and chest. Doc gave me amoxicillin but haven't seen any improvements yet. I can hear the congestion when I'm lying down and I cough all night. I have to sit up in bed. Hubby slept on couch. I just wanna be able to sleep w/o coughing. Okay, I didn't mean to go on so. I will be glad to feel better and get a good nights sleep

May I suggest an additional 'home remedy', not to replace but to accompany the meds and other treatments. Keep the sheet or some type of cloth loosely cupped over your nose/mouth when resting/sleeping (Not meaning to cover your head, think dust mask) The immediate moisture really helps me with the cough.

Feel better, Cheryl! Have you tried Mucinex DM for your cough? That stuff is a life-saver for me.

Oh I agree with Savvy, my son had such a bad congestion and cough and the Mucinex was recommended to him and did clear it all up...finally.

Just checking back in . Saveur, that's a good idea...Mucinex! Doc just said it's a virus and to use a vaporizer. Lisa, do get out so you don't catch what hubby has...buy some Lysol while you're out. Spray everything...that's what I've done and I use the germ x quite often! I googled "how to get rid of chest congestion" and same thing that the doc told me to do. Avoid sugar-it blocks the mucus, not cold foods, plenty of liquids-especially herbal tea (I do not have), use vaporizer, he also prescribed amoxicillin. He didn't mention the Mucinex. I may have to go by some. Thanks everyone!

Campfire Foil Packs

Submitted by: Natural Chef Michelle 
Chicken, potatoes, mushrooms, and peppers are wrapped in aluminum foil for one-dish meals cooked in a campfire! These are easy to make for camping, my husband loves them! We prepare them at home and then leave them in the cooler until we are ready to cook. You can use any combination of meat and vegetables that you like.

I finally got this typed up as a personal recipe. It's DH's favorite meal and what he always wants for his birthday meal which was Monday but we ended up going out for lunch so we had a light dinner that night. He says he'll be home early today from work so maybe I'll get this made today.

This is a good, standard chili, with lots of ground beef, tomatoes, kidney and pinto beans, and onions. It needs to simmer for 90 minutes on the stove, or can be made in a slow cooker and left to simmer all day.

Instead of the two dishes I had in mind yesterday morning, I made this. I'm not sure about today, maybe stacked enchiladas or the creamy spinach enchiladas from Pinterest that I was thinking about yesterday. I'm going out with friends after work, so I'm likely to change my mind again!

I cut the recipe down to one third, well sort of, was hard to do, but used fresh garlic cloves, about 4. And then one of everything, lb. ground beef, onion, can of tomatoes, beans, paste...and so on. It was still enough for three and leftovers again tonight. The spices scared me especially the thyme, but it was really good.
