#Remember911

9/11 Movie Prize Pack

I suppose that 9/11 is the historical event that will always haunt my generation and plenty more.  The question of where we were when the first plane hit occurs regularly and we’ve had the conversation on the back porch with various friends.  I’m not really certain it matters so much where we were, as how it impacted us.  For me, I was driving home from vo-tech to my Momma’s house.  I was in 11th grade.  I remember hearing it on the radio show I watched all the time and thinking what a poor joke it was.  When I got home, I walked in going “Mom, you wouldn’t believe the crap they are….” and then I saw the television.  We all know that was enough.  More than enough actually.

9/11 opens in theaters on September 8 and features an all star cast including Luis Guzman (The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), Wood Harris (Justified), Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York), Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries) and Bruce Davison (X-Men).

In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.

Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later … their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.

With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.

Chocolate Gravy


When I was a little girl, I stayed with my Great-Granparents a LOT. They kept me while my Mom and Dad worked, and pretty much all the time as I was my Granny’s girl. I have many great memories with them, my Granny taught me lots of things. I remember sitting at her kitchen table with her in ‘my’ seat as she taught me how to color in the lines in my coloring books. Down the little hill in front of their house is a well house, I got in trouble for climbing on the roof, and a stream that went under the road and into the creek. Granny would give me a pie pan and I would go down and make mud pies. Then I’d take them up to the house and tell her I had a pie for her. She would take it and put it in the oven to ‘bake’ for me. She baked her pies, so mine had to be baked too!!! LOL. I also remember sitting on the porch snapping green beans with her in the summer time.
So many fond memories, I could go on forever about them! One of my favorite things she made was chocolate gravy. On weekend mornings, my Grandpa would get up SUPER early and begin making homemade sourdough biscuits and Granny would make me chocolate gravy. That was the best breakfast ever, equaled only by my Pa-pa’s graham cracker breakfast (which I’ll do a post about another time!). I asked my Nani, which is their daughter, how the recipe came about and she said all she knew was it was passed down from generation to generation. I make chocolate gravy for my Monkey every once in a while, but it is a treat that I treasure so I only make it every once in a while. It always brings back all of the memories of sitting at the table with Granny and Grandpa. We would sit down, hold hands, and Grandpa would pray that God bless our meal.
I’ve noticed there are lots of similar recipes online about chocolate gravy, but I decided to post my Granny’s recipe. Mainly as a tribute to the woman who taught me so much about love, marriage, grace, mercy, and helping others. My Granny was a great woman and I’ll always remember her example. She never had a cross word, hated when people yelled and argued, and loved with all she was. She and Grandpa have went to be with Jesus, and I know they are happier there, but I look forward to the re-union we sang about so many times as I sat beside her in church.
Okay, before I start getting all sappy and crying, here is the recipe!
Flour
2 cups Milk (Silk works great in this one!)
2 cups Sugar
2-3 tbsp Unsweetened Coa-Coa
Cooked Biscuits!
Pour milk in a small pot, add sugar and coa-coa. Stir constantly. After it begins to get hot, slowly begin adding flour in increments of 1 tbsp each time. When it reaches desired thickness, remove from heat. Pour over biscuits. Personally, I like my biscuits all tore up so that I can dig in, but that’s just my preference!!!
If anyone has a good sourdough recipe, I would be thrilled to have it!!! My Grandpa always made sourdough biscuits with the gravy, and nothing can match that taste!!!

You can’t Road Trip without this! DIY Road Trip Kit

Are you a road trip fan?  I absolutely love them!  Especially with good company!  This kit is something that has become a staple in my vehicle! Be sure and do one for yours!

We took a little vacation recently, it was great!!! We took a road trip to Branson, Missouri for four days. It was a great chance to relax and enjoy each other’s company without any outside stresors! A dear friend and her husband have a timeshare there, so we were able to have some great fellowship time with them. I’ll post more about that soon!
Typically, any trip for us is stressful. Chief doesn’t like being in the car long and worries about schedules and traffic. It’s very difficult for both Chief and I to let go of our daily life stresses, so we spend a lot of time in our own little world and it is inevitable that we will forget something and leave it behind!  He is certainly NOT a road trip fan, but he is a good sport.  Most of the time. haha
So, with that in mind, I decided to get super worried BEFORE the trip so I wouldn’t have to worry DURING the trip! Preparation was the key, ladies and gentleman! I went to the library and got five Lake Wobegon CD’s. If you’ve never listened to Lake Wobegon, I highly recommend it! It’s stories told about a small town. Most are funny, remind you of the ‘good ole days’ and all of the stories remind you of what is really important in life and how blessed we truly are!
I got everything packed up the few days before and as I was trying to make sure we had all of the ‘little’ things necessary for the trip, I decided to make a Road Trip Kit. I put in all of the things that our family typically needs on a journey. I’ll put a list of ‘ingredients’ at the bottom of the post!
   I took the biggest shoe box I could find and went to work! (As a side note, these are probably the best shoes I’ve ever had and I will be buying another pair when I finally get through destroying the ones I have! They really work your muscles and do wonders for your back and knees!)

***author note: I desperately miss Sketcher’s Shape-Ups!***

 I attempted to use as much ‘scrap’ scrapbook paper I had as well as the paper that I am really not a huge fan of, I figured the box wouldn’t survive too long! I used my Cricut machine to cut out the letters, camper, and car. I had to do the camper, even though we don’t have one. My Great Grandparents use to go on caravans and travel all over. I loved their caravan as a child, still do! So, as a tribute to them, I added it to my box décor!
That would be my Tator Bug peeking over the box!!!  He likes to be in the middle of things, so if I’m doing something, he lays up by it.  He jumped up there right as I snapped the picture!  Of course, it was too cute to do a different one!!!
Now, back to our regularly scheduled program…
Last but not least, I covered the whole box in contact paper. It’s not an easy feat getting the contact paper to not try to come off at the edges, so I had to use some scotch tape for the corners to make it lay down, but you honestly can’t tell unless you are looking for it!
I used some boxes that would have otherwise been trashed to make ‘dividers’ for my things. Graham cracker boxes, tea boxes, etc. all work really well! I found two boxes that would fit, as I wanted as much dividing space as possible!
Next, I got out my mini baggies! Love those things!!! I put everything that needed to be seperated in different bags.

Road Trip Kit

Now, for my list o’ ingredients:
First Aide Baggies– band aides, triple antibiodic ointment, alcohol swabs, aspirins, tums, etc.,. Don’t buy a kit, it’s cheaper in the long run to make one, as once you buy all of the stuff, you will have enough to make a kit for your house and 2-3 vehicles! Depending, of course, how often it’s needed. Just remember that the medicine has to be in it’s bottle, lest for some reason you get pulled over. Don’t want to have to explain why you have little white pills (aspirin) in a baggie!
Ladies Products: Umm, yeah… Even if it’s not that time, it’s always good to have them just in case! You’d be amazed what can be done with a tampon in a pinch! (Perhaps I will post more of that later! LOL.
Road Trip Meal Enhancements: baggie with ketchup, salt, pepper, BBQ, toothpicks, peppermints, napkins, drink mixes, etc. Use sauces that aren’t going to ruin due to heat or cold. I use the packets that we get when we eat out. Remember, sauces get their own baggies! That way, if they bust everything else isn’t ruined!!!
Additional things I put in the box:
Extra Vehicle Cell Phone Charger
Q-tips
Nail Clippers
Rubberbands (you’d be amazed how handy these come in!)
Plastic Shopping Bags (for when the other trash bag gets full!)
Kleenex
EXTRA napkins!
Clorox bleach pen
Laundry Stain Remover Pen
**Anything Else your family needs at home frequently (i.e. my Monkey’s braces rubberbands)

DIY Lunchables


Who doesn’t love those yummy little lunchables!!! Aside from my wallet, I can’t think of anyone! My Monkey is always wanting to get them but I will never buy them because of the price! (I know, poor neglected Monkey, contact me for donation information! LOL)
So, in an effort to add to her lunch repetoire, I decided to make my own lunchable! Here is the price breakdown:
Generic Buttery Round Crackers: 2.36
Lunch meat (already had it on hand): no additional cost!
Sliced Cheese (also on hand): no additional cost!
So I guess the total cost was $2.36!!!
To add some varience, use different lunch meats, cheeses, and even pepperoni!
For Pizza Lunchables:
Pizza or Marinara Sauce (in a small container)
Sliced Pita Bread
Shredded Cheese
Pepperoni or ground meat (turkey, beef, or even sausage)
Spoon to Spread it on
I add a bowl of fruit, jello, or pudding as a side.
An added ‘suprise’ (if you don’t use them all the time) can be juice or drink mixes with their water. We do water everyday, as she needs it!
