Homemade Poptarts

Pinned Image

As I was browsing Pinterest I ran across a recipe for mini homemade poptarts and I thought they were a sweet idea, but then didn't think much about them afterwards.  But then more recently I again saw on Pinterest a recipe for the full sized ones, it was nearing Father's Day, and so I thought it would be a fun thing to make.  Daddy loves poptarts but I thought by making it myself it could have less sugar and no nasty additives and preservatives!

So without further to do here is the link to the sight for..

Homemade Poptarts

I thought they laid it out so well that there was no need for me to rewrite it!  It does take a little time, but I think it's worth it!  I made strawberry poptarts, but they also give the recipe for making the cinnamon kind and also suggest filling them with Nutella, if you like that sort of thing (I have never tried it)!  Anna and I were also talking that it would be fun to experiment with marshmallow cream and chocolate to make the S'more kind.

Here are the ones I made (sorry about the bad quality of picture).

Thank you for reading!  Let me know if you try them!

My Graduation Open House

It has now been almost two weeks since my graduation open house (I know, I have been neglecting my blog of late!) and I am finally here to post about it.

The week before was very busy doing pretty much a top to bottom spring cleaning, and we were busy to the end, but I think all was finished in good order.  Family and friends were very helpful in baking cookies to bring our count to over 600!  Even though we had never experienced planning for a party like this our figure of how much food to prepare wasn't to off (leftovers isn't a bad thing, right!?). 

The sign in table: we kept thinking of fun ways for people to leave a note, so we went with all three; typing on the typewriter, writing in the book or on a sticky note to post on the board.

Picture and display table complete with home sewn pendants.  I really enjoyed the decorating part!

Ham and Turkey with Swiss Sliders
Fruit under palm tree (made from pineapple and palm leaves - pinterest idea!)
Chocolate and Carrot cake
12 different kinds of cookies from Lavender Shortbread and Ruhbarb to bear shaped cookies for the little ones

"One Smart Cookie buffet"

Cutting the Carrot cake.

A good game of volley ball!

I was so very blessed by all the friends and family that came - it was SUCH a special day for me!!  I can easily say that it went better than I imagined and we were already talking about Anna's open house now that we enjoyed this one so much!

Now this past week I went to old time school, and celebrated my tenth time going; six years as a student and four years as a teacher's assistant!  It was another fabulous week!

One young lady rode her pony to school for show and tell and then used it for the game Annie, Annie Over.  She was so fun to watch!

Thank you for paying a visit!  Blessings on your summer!
