Recipes, Dirtbikes, and a Cute Little Girl

Well, Sunday was another day of racing for the boys and they didn't do too bad.  Ryan came in 9th overall in the 65 class, and Kyle came in 3rd place overall in the schoolboy class, and 11th overall in the 125 class.  They raced at what we call their "home track", but in reality this was the first time we've been there this year to race.  The track was great and everything was very organized, now if we could just get home earlier.  Here are some pictures from this weekend's races.

The boys are trying to get the more races lined up and I'm trying to talk Carl into riding an hare scramble.  Once in a while this woman wants to be a cheerleader for her man!  One of the biggest races I'm looking forward to cheering for him (and the boys) at is the Ironman at Tom's Marine Sales in Crawfordsville.  That is so exciting to watch!

It's time to share more pictures of my newest niece Anna Joy.  A few weeks ago, Health and Melissa invited everyone to her baptism and back to their house for lunch.  Mom and Kim were up from Florida with the spoiled step sisters and it was nice for everyone to spend time with them.  The food was good, cake was beautiful, got to spoil my oldest niece, and see my family - 2 thumbs up!  Here are a few pictures from the first two times we saw Anna.

I also have some recipes to share with you - one is good (full of vegetables and some other healthy stuff) and one is not so good (aka a sweet, chocolately, delicious little gem for your tastebuds).   Let's start with the good-for-you recipe - Veggie Burgers.  This recipe comes from a cook at work - she runs the little cafe and makes some amazingly awesome food.

Veggie Burgers

These are good in a wrap along with some lettuce and sweet onion sauce.  These are the veggies that I used, but you can use what you want and the quantity you want.

medium yellow squash
large red onion
green pepper
red pepper
garlic cloves

Wash and cut veggies into same sized pieces and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Roast for approximately 45 minutes at 450 degrees.  When veggies are cool, put in food processor and chop it all up.  Depending on how many veggies you made, you will probably have to do this in batches.  Once you have all the veggies chopped up, mix in 1 egg and some oats so that it will all stick together.  Time to fry them up and eat or freeze. These really are tasty and good for you.

Ok, I don't have a good picture of the next thing I made, but hopefully that won't mattter because they will be yummy in your tummy!!  I made these little chocolate chip cupcakes for Anna's baptism lunch and they were half gone by the time I thought to take this picture.

Ok, it's soooooo easy to make these.  Make the recipe on the mini chocolate chip package and bake them a mini muffin pan.  When you take them out of the oven, immediately make an indentation in the cookie (I used the end of a wooden spoon), then pop them in the freezer.  This keeps the cookies soft and chewy when you're ready to eat them.  You can make your own icing or use the premade stuff in the can.  Just pipe it in the cookie and eat!

So thank you for sticking with me through this long post.  I hope your week is full of sunshine and happiness.
