I'm back after a blogging hiatus. We welcomed a sweet baby boy, Elijah Dean, on January 10. He is such a joy and we just can't get enough of his snuggles and beautiful face. Thanks for your patience as we transition to a family of 7.

  1. Congratulations Darcie! You have a beautiful family!!
    Quick random question...do you soak the old fashioned oats before eating them? I need new breakfast ideas and I was just curious because I thought I read that I should soak them before eating them? Thanks!

    1. It depends if I remember or not. 😉 It is better if you do soak them.

  3. Congratulations on your new baby!!

    I'm new to THM and I just want to say that I admire you for what you do. As a stay-at-home homeschooling mom, I know how hard it is to manage everything and you also provide us with these menus and shopping lists. It has been extremely helpful to me and I truly appreciate it.

    If I could give a suggestion... it would be helpful if the items on the shopping list maybe listed what menu item it went with. Sometimes I delete an item off the menu that maybe I don't like or my family wouldn't like but I don't necessarily know what ingredients to take off the shopping list.

    Again, thank you for all you do and I look forward to trying many more menus.
