Checking off our list... thing at a time. 

The summer bucket is yours coming along?  Any changes or new additions you want to share?

We have checked off some more from our list.

* Try one new recipe each week during summer - check.  (BTW, this can be really hard!)

Any pineapple lovers out there?  You may have tried this next one already. 
Pineapple Scallop

(So good that I forgot to snap a photo of it before we dug in!)


6 slices of stale cubed bread
1 c butter, melted
3/4 c milk
2 c white sugar
20 oz pineapple tidbits, drained
2 beaten eggs


Mix bread and melted butter in bowl.  Mix the remaining ingredients and add to bread mixture.  Pour into an 8" x 8" well-buttered glass dish.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.  This is yummy served warm and can even be served as a side dish for a ham dinner.

All of my kids loved it.  (Even my non-pineapple lovers.) 

 He had two bowls in a row.

* Sit outside and watch a night sky light up with with the promise of a thunderstorm   ( so so beautiful ) - check.

* Grow sunflowers  (Ester's are just starting to awaken from their slumber) - check.

* Visit with neighbors outside until dark, while kids play, sweat, and go home happy and tired - check.

Hope you are finding the time to enjoy as many special moments that God places in your life every day.  Sometimes we don't even have to search very far, do we?

Happy Summer!
