The Calgary Zoo & some recipes…
Yesterday I took the kid’s to the Calgary Zoo, the kid’s wanted to see the Koala’s up close & personal, well as close as you can get thru a glass window, they look cute, that’s about it! They are on “loan” from the San Diego Zoo until September. I finally also got to see the Stingray’s up close which was very cool, they are kinda cute!
It wasn’t the warmest day here in Calgary yesterday, a little breezy & when that sun went away…brrr!
I thought this was pretty funny, my son wanted nothing to do with getting in the pouch considering it is across from the playground!
Even though it was a little chilly out the kid’s just couldn’t resist these bright, yummy popsicles…brrr!
I also just wanted to post a couple of yummy recipes that I have made lately that I have found from fellow bloggers.
The first is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, I found this recipe at Just Give Me Stamps found here.
They are quite yummy, very “dense” & moist, my daughter wants nothing to do with them because of the texture but, my hubby likes them! I used butter instead of shortening & it seemed to work out fine.
The other recipe is Hearty Hamburger Soup, I made this recipe a few weeks back, I found the recipe from Paper Pleasing Ideas found here. It is really, really yummy & quick to make, I like anything where I can use only one pot, a crockpot or a casserole, my kid’s loved this soup too, freezes well. Julie has some other yummy recipes on her blog.
Just wanted to say thanks ladies for sharing, I love trying new recipes!
