The ways of Grilled Cheese

I found this website on Pinterest:

On this website you can check what foods/ingredients you have in your kitchen and it will give you a list of recipes according to what you selected. This caught my eye mostly for the following picture:
This is my fridge at the moment
 I immedietly wanted to stump this site and see what it could come up with, with my array of ingredients. I am going to guess that this is not a very big or popular site because its list seemed quite small and had some random things on it.

Don't worry, if you add in my freezer and cabinet, I have more food than my fridge leads you to believe.
Though I didn't completely stump it, I'm going to give myself a win, because 3 of the 5 recipes it came up with were for different ways to make grilled cheese:
Grilled Cheese on a Stick
Stuffed Grilled Cheese Rolls

Grilled Cheese Rolls
Seriously, how many ways can you make grilled cheese? Slappin' cheese between 2 nomal pieces of buttered bread sounds so much easier than those. 
It also gave me a recipe for homemade vanilla wafers...I may have to try this one out. I will let you know how it turns out. It says that it makes 32 dozen cookies...thats 384 cookies!! I don't believe that..guess I will have to make them to see if that true.

Stuck in Colder Weather

The snow is here, in Fargo, ND!

I am not nearly as excited as I normally am for snow. Mainly because I know I will get my fair share of snow. But none the less, I enjoyed seeing it snow yesterday. It was pretty in the morning before it started getting winding in the afternoon. It really suprises me that the roads are not better kept. It has not been the best to drive in, but I am putting my 4WD to good use.

Is there even a road here?

Saw a lot of people busting out their snow blowers on my way home

It is currently a whopping 1 degree, and the the only double digits I will see for a while will be in the negatives.  
Stay warm, where ever you may be!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I should have posted this last week, but I got locked out of this account, so better late than never...

I have never taken part in the posting of what I am thankful for each day that circulates Facebook this time of year, but it always gets me thinking about it. So I decided to make a list of the things I am most thankful for.
  1. First and foremost, I am thankful for our Creator who sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross so that we could have eternal life through Him.
  2. My Mama. She is strong, beautiful, and inspiring; She changed my diapers, taught me right from wrong, and has dealt with all my shenanigans for 22 years.  
  3. Mr. Preston Ty Riggs. He loves me for who I am, he wears wranglers, and lives on a dirt road, what more could I want? Sometimes I wonder how he puts up with me, but that just makes me love him even more.
  4. My friends and family. They show unconditional love and support in everything I do (even when I decided to move to ND)  (...ehhh couldn't choose which pics to post)
  5. Teachers. I took a personal and family finance class my junior year at K-State, I don't remember what the subject of the day was but I remember the professor telling us to take pride in our education because it is the one thing that cannot be taken away from you. I had never thought of it like that, but it's true; You could sell your car or house, phones break, and pets pass away, but once you have a degree, that can't be sold or taken from you (unless maybe you forgot to return a library book, but you know what I mean). From the bottom of my heart, thank you to all of my teachers from elementary to college, they really don't get enough credit!
  6. My 4 legged babies, actually all animals for that matter. They make me happy :)
  7. Farmers and ranchers, thank you for working 365 days a year, from triple digit heat, to negative cold temperatures to help feed our bellies.
  8. For the invention of cars so that I could get home to see friends and family over Thanksgiving break.
There are lots of other things I am so thankful for, but those are the biggies.

Happy Late Thanksgiving,
