Dad's Favorite T-Shirt

My kiddos love to draw on daddy's back with body crayons. LOL The only problem with that is, it's messy. The body crayons are fun and I didn't want them to not be able to do something fun with their daddy. So when I saw this idea HERE. I knew it would be fun for all of them.

We made ours by just looking at the original photo and just hand drawing it on. I used a pencil, then used fabric pens to finish. If you don't want to draw them on, you can visit The Blue Basket to use their printouts.


Here is our shirt. The fabric pens bleed a bit, but it still turned out great. Plus the kiddos and daddy love it!
We added a bit more to ours. A Welcome to "Daddyville" Sign with a population. 37 MPH sign (all the kids ages added up). We also added Dad's Favorite T-shirt to the front.
Don't they look like they are having fun!?!

Koch (Old German Breakfast) recipe

We are hanging out at my husbands grandparents farm in Missouri today. It's time for the annual butchering! We haven't been able to be at the family butchering for the past five years or so because we lived so far away...but that is not the case any longer. We get half a hog and end up with a freezer full of brats, pork chops, pork steaks, bacon, pork sausage...all sorts of goodies! In honor of going to the farm and being around my husbands whole family I decided to make one of the families old German recipes for dinner before we left.

Koch...say it with a heavy German accent, or just use your throat and if you spit a little that's okay! It's almost like KUUGGGHHHHH. Or as I call it, scrambled pancakes. This is a great recipe when you're low on groceries or even for a quick inexpensive breakfast! We usually only eat Koch for dinner though, weird I know.

Ingredients
2-3 Eggs
2 cups milk
3 cups flour
1tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup lard (I used butter)
sugar or syrup
 Directions
Beat eggs, then add milk. Beat well. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to egg and milk mixture. Beat until smooth. Melt 1/4 cup lard (or butter) in a 9" iron skillet. When lard/butter is hot, add batter and turn heat to medium high. Use a knife to lift dough as it browns. Add more lard/butter as needed. Keep stiring with a knife, and when the batter is almost baked, break it into small crumbs using a spatula. Continue browning the batter as you continue to break up the dough into the size of marbles. Serve with sugar or syrup (we prefer syrup).
 I used the wooden spatula the whole time because I didn't want a knife to scratch my nonstick electric skillet.
 I suppose you could also serve this with jelly, or pie filling, make it your own and try different things. We serve ours with scrambled eggs....Micah had a hard time telling them apart at first!
Let me know if you give this a try and what you think of it. Hopefully next week I can share some photos from our time butchering on the farm! Love family traditions like that, even though grandma and grandpa don't live on the farm anymore...the butchering is still happening!
For some reason my post didn't go live last Saturday...so if you missed our

Corn Dog Muffins

I made the most delicious "Corn Bread Muffins" the other night. I saw a couple different versions of these and went with the muffins. I did however have an idea on how to make these another way. So I will share those next week sometime! I think you'll laugh, but love them. LOL

...What you will need for these...
Muffin Pans
Non-Stick Spray
Corn Bread Mix
Water
Mixing Bowl and Spoon (Spatula)
Hot Dogs
Cutting Board and Knife
Ketchup and Mustard to taste
First...Set oven to temp suggested on corn bread mix. Then begin mixing up your corn bread mix. I used Marie Calendars original mix. Yum. All you need is water and the mix. Very quick. Add them to your muffin pans filling them only half full. Don't forget to spray your pans with non-stick spray first.
Using your knife and cutting board, cut up your hot dogs and place as many as you like into the corn bread mix. I cut my dogs in half, then sliced each half into about 7-8 pieces. Perfect for bite size. You could also use lil smokies if you don't want to cut anything. Just as 2 or more smokies to the mix. I used one regular package of hot dogs for 18 muffins. I made some muffins without  hot dogs by request of the hubs. ;D
Place those in the oven and cook em up. Watch them as the ones without hot dogs (if you cook them together) may cook faster. As you cook the cornbread mix will rise a little above the hot dogs. You can also push the hot dogs down towards the bottom if you want to add even more hot dogs to your muffins.
Let them cook just a bit then serve hot with ketchup and mustard to taste. My son turned his nose up at first. He is very picky. I told him they tasted just like a corn dog. So he decided to try it. He said, "wow it does taste like a corn dog!" he ate 3. ;D He even had some the next day for lunch. So YES, picky kids will love them!
You also might want to add a little extra ketchup and mustard to your plate for dipping. I did!
Don't they look tasty!?! They are very Tasty!!!
These would even be good to serve at a kids birthday party!
