Recipe and other stuff........

I made a new to me recipe today, infact I sort of made it up myself.

Strawberry and Mango Crisp.


1lb strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 or 2 mangoes, peeled and chopped
4 tbsp flour
4 tbsp sugar


1/2 cup flour (all purpose/plain)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup marg
1 cup rolled oats


Toss the fruit in the 4 tbsp of flour and sugar and pop in dish.

For the topping, mix the flour, sugar and rolled oats together, rub in the marg until mixed in.  Place on top of the fruit.

Bake in a 375 oF oven for 40 minutes, until topping is golden brown.  Serve with icecream or cream.  It's good!!!!

Now you know I am not one for bad language, but when I saw this over at Tracey's I knew right away I could relate to this:

I saw this dress on the online store at Roots and thought it was nice........not big enough sizing though for me.

I have started inputting recipes for the church cookbook, and I can see me trying a few!!  So no doubt you will be benefiting from this!!!

Did you remember to put your money in your Daily Savings Pot today?  We are nearly at the end of month three!!!!

Today's Money Saving Tip:

Let your laundry dry outside. If you have the ability to hang up laundry outside, let the sun and warm summer breeze do the drying for you. Even if you can’t hang up clothes outside, try using your dryer on a lower heat setting or only partially drying your shirts and letting them air dry the rest of the way.

Why don't they make dresses in 'proper' sizes??? eg. L XL XXL XXXL XXXXXXXXXXL!!!!!
Isn't your cup measuring method better than our ounces! xxx

Cute dress. A few years ago I would have looked stunning in something like that, I'm sure. Oh, well, life goe on, doesn't it.

I also loved the Lord grant me plaque. I copied it to send it to all those people who are on my list to give them fair warning!

I really like this recipe. It looks very nice to eat and very easy to make (I am a bit of a lazy cook :-). A great combination in my book. The strawberries and mango goes very well together. I am just imagining the taste. Oh, you really got me hungry!

The serenity prayer must have been written by somebody who has been to one too many advisory council meetings -- without chocolate. Really.

As for the Julie dress, I'll buy IF they throw in a new pair of knees for nothing.

Two of my favorite fruits are strawberries and mango. I am adding this recipe to my list. Nice dress too and I think I have heard the prayer before but it always makes me chuckle.

This song never gets old  I get goosebumps every time I hear it.  We have seen Sarah Brightman in concert twice.  Now I love her voice, but ...
