Random Randomness

I want to recommend a really cool blog post. It’s very refreshing to domestic disasters delights like myself.

…and I have a new photo added to my shop.

Shelli’s Veggie Beef Noodle Soup


SO flavorFULL!

2 lbs ground beef

64oz Great Value Tomato Juice

2 beef bouillon cubes Aldi Brand

1 Tbsp McCormick Low Sodium Meatloaf Seasoning

1 can Great Value Green Beans(drained)

1 can Great Value Corn(drained)

1/2 bag Creamette Extra Wide Egg Noodles

Brown ground beef, drain, add all ingredients except noodles. Simmer on medium low for 1 hour, add noodles, cook an additional 15 minutes, serve and enjoy!

*I share the brands I use but it’s perfectly fine to substitute. Not a sponsored post.

**Update: The noodles absorb lots of juice, add less, maybe half, to have a brothier soup. Either way is delish!!!


1 Corinthians 10:31 –

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.


Shifting the Focus in My Etsy Shop, Literally!


I’m now selling digital copies of my edited photos in my Etsy Shop. They are treasures too special not to share.

Photo Practice: Wildflowers


My Facebook Friends pointed out that this is Queen Anne’s Lace. I’ve never studied about Missouri Wildflowers but have adored them for all my life. What a complex species this one is…is edible when very young but closely resembles poison hemlock, yikes! It also attracts wasps, which I’m deathly allergic to.

Beauty is sometimes dangerous, 😉
