YAY!!! More awesome recipes!! And a great girls night out!!!!

 I found a recipe on a blog I am pretty sure it was on a blog but I can not find the blog for the life of me... but it was for:

Watermelon Salsa

It is soooooo yummy!!!!  I loved it so much and I didn't really know you could make fruit into salsa!!!  Here is the recipe:

3 Cups watermelon (seeded and chopped)
1/2 Cup chopped green peppers
2 tblsp. lime juice
1 tblsp. cilantro
1 tblsp. green onion
2 tblsp. jalapeno peppers

 Combine well. Cover. Chill at least an hour. Serve.

 Ok and I found this!!!  Oh it is just yummy!!!!

 It is a mini cherry cheese cake!!!!  It was sooo awesome!!!!  I made it today as a surprise for my husband when he gets home!!!!    and I admit I did taste one ... lol... I am sorry I had too!!!

 The crust I got from from this website!

Now the cheese cake part I actually got form my bullet Recipe book!  I will type it out for you in a way so you don't have to use the bullet... you could use a blender if you have one or maybe even a food processor...

 1 (8oz) package of cream cheese
 2 eggs
 1/2 cup of sugar
 1tsp. vanilla

preheat the oven to 350
Put all of the ingredients together in the blender or what ever you are using... and mix until smooth! 
Take a cupcake pan and spray with cooking spray!  Take part of the dough and make it into a little pie in the cupcake pan and do it to all of the little cupcake spots poke the bottom with a fork then pour in the cheese cake filling and put it in the oven for 25 minutes...

While that is cooking you can start to make the topping!  Now the recipe I got was out of my bullet express cook book and it was for raspberries but I used cherries instead... you probably could use any kind of berry for this...

2 cups of any berries you would like
1/3 cup corn syrup
Pinch of ground nutmeg

Place berries and corn syrup in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 Minutes!!  Then place in a blender add the nutmeg and pulse until smooth!!!!  YAY!!!  and it is soooo yummy!!!!!!  Enjoy!!!!

 Here are some more pictures... these are of the most recent veggies I have harvested!!!

I am still here!!! And I have pics!!!!

So I have been working on some more quilting projects!  I have made a sleeping bag for my kindle and I have made them with hexagons!  I got the idea from an awesome blog!!!  I got it from Kasey at Fabric and Thread; Paper and Pens!  I did it a little different (that is why I call it a sleeping bag) but it is still super cute!!!  I will be making some more soon so I can match my moods and my purses!  I still have to do some binding but it is super cute!!  And I am thinking of putting some more hexis at the top because She is peaking out a little!  at first that is what I wanted but after looking at it a while I have changed my mind

I also started to make my sons quilt....
This is what the blocks look like... I mad six of them I am sure it will be enough because I am going to put black frames around them because his baby colors were Blue and Black!  I really like the aliens lol...  I have some black so I will be starting the frames soon... I figure I will put an inch around them so they can be separated by two inches.... then I would like to do maybe white or maybe even red for a boarder... I will figure it out as I go!

And I also decided to give my first quilt to my baby girl... Look at how happy she was when I told her!!
All I have to do is change the label to mom instead of alannah lol  But I will be doing that soon...

I have decided that I wont be knitting or crocheting to much this year... I kind of knitted/ crocheted myself out while I was pregnant... I havent really gotten back into the swing of it... I do have a blanket to finish for my friends niece so that will be finished as soon as it can be done but after that I wont be doing to much more... except some hats and booties for my new niece or nephew I am getting... but all the blankets will be quilted... I really enjoy quilting!!!!
We been to the park a lot lately... here are some picture I took while we were there last time!

 Look at these cute little ducks!  We were feeding them bread! 
 He is such a handsome duck!
 These two were so cute... always right next to each other!
 Here we call seagulls rats with wings!  They kept diving down and stealing the bread from the ducks at one point the male duck attacked a seagull... I was happy he stood up for himself!
 Doesn't see look adorable!!

 See the squirrel I was standing under the tree and berries from the tree kept falling on me... well I look up and who was hanging above me... this squirrel... and his butt was hanging over my head lol... I was so afraid that squirrel was going to poop or pee on me lol...
 Stupid rats lol... the whole time blayre was saying that! lol

 More of the squirrel! lol

Totally cute right lol..... I love my babies they are so adorable!!!!  

And I also was able to harvest some of my crops!!!  Yay!!!!!!

Of course I have multiples... see I like to eat the green beans right from the garden and so does my daughter so we have been eating away at them.... and my peppers are patiently waiting to be put into some salsa... and maybe even some soups that I am thinking of making!!!  I am super happy about them...

 Here is my cilantro it is a strong little plant!!!
 Then my little baby... rosemary!!!!!  I smell her everyday and she just makes me so happy and calm!!!!
This is my husbands catnip he is very proud of it... he is growing them for the cats....

These are my Asian Lilies my husband got them for me the first year we were in here... I love them and when we move I am soooo taking them with me I will not leave them behind!!!

Last but not least here is the chicken I made the other day!!!  It was just a little Cornish Hen but she tasted so good that my daughter, who doesnt like chicken all that much, ate her all up!!!!!
