Easy Baked Ravioli, Mikie's Father's Day, Back Popping AND Facebook Stuff (Nine Amazing Places to Stay Overnight in Alabama)

Good Thursday evening!

RANDOMNESS #1 - We celebrated Mike's Father's Day this past Sunday at AllSteak in Cullman. Everyone in our immediate family was able to attend, so that was the best part as far as I was concerned.

And even on Father's Day, I am the one you want to make happy.

Am I right?


We found out Judith is a fan of their Orange Fluff...

Which means we'll be having Orange Fluff at Nana B's house on a regular basis now.


Austin and Josh were both given the traditional Father's Day tie from me and Mikie. I doubt we'll give them Father's Day gifts every year from now on since they aren't OUR fathers, but it seemed like the right thing to do for their very first official Father's Day.






I think Mikie's a very blessed man.


Judith is a pro when it comes to waving good-bye...

And giving kisses...

And playing in puddles...

And running barefoot through the grass.

And just generally making us feel very, very happy.

All of which I think is listed in her Job Description under "What Does a Baby Bring to the Table?"

RANDOMNESS #2 - Yesterday I was a little stiff.

Not unlike I felt this past Monday, Tuesday...

Or 2015.

Unfortunately, I made the mistake of mentioning it to The Chick, and she assured me she could "pop" my back and I would feel much, much better.

I don't know what went wrong in my mature-almost-55-year-old mind, but after a few minutes of explaining and coaxing from The Chick, I found myself facedown on the den floor.

Voluntarily, mind you.

Definitely voluntarily.

She then proceeded to apply pressure with both hands ever so slowly on my back.

I don't know if what I felt was pain, but I didn't hear the FOUR pops in my back because of the bellowing...

My bellowing.

Roxie sat back and grinned. "There! How do you feel?"

I was unable to answer right away because of the collapsed lung, but after half an hour or so, I was able to stand and sit and walk around unassisted.

"Are you still stiff?" she asked before I went to bed.

"Oh, yeah," I replied. "Still stiff. But it's okay. Stiff is good. Stiff is doable. Stiff is who I am at this particular stage of life."

What I didn't tell her...

I really wasn't as stiff.

However, the trauma of becoming less stiff is lodged in my brain somewhere, and I doubt I will EVER allow anyone to de-stiff me again.

Ever.

Especially a 19 year-old chiropractor wanna be...

No matter how cute!

I'm going to file this little story under "Lesson Learned."

Easy Baked Lasagna

You will need the following:

25 ounces frozen cheese ravioli (keep the pasta frozen)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups spaghetti sauce
Parmesan cheese, to taste

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

2. Pour 1 cup of the spaghetti sauce into the bottom of a 9" x 13" dish. Layer with half of the frozen ravioli and half of the mozzarella cheese.

3. Layer the other half of the frozen ravioli, remaining cup of spaghetti sauce and remaining cup of mozzarella cheese over top.

4. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

5. Bake, covered with aluminum foil, for 30 minutes. Remove tin foil and continue to cook for 10 to 15 minutes. Sometimes I will turn the oven up to broil at the very end for a minute to brown the top a little bit more, but that's not necessary.

NOTE FROM ENCHANTING BELINDA - I am going to add a layer of browned and seasoned ground chuck, AND a layer of canned Italian-style chopped tomatoes next time. Not because it wasn't good, but because I want to play with the recipe a little bit!

Where to Wade... Cold Water Creek, Strawberry Poke Cake, Blog Linkage AND Restaurant Review (Over Easy)

Good Thursday evening.

RANDOMNESS #1 - We celebrated Mr. Faulkner's Father's Day Sunday afternoon in Oxford. It's a drop-in kinda thing, so we never know who we might see.

This year, Jared, Amber, Mackenzie and Micah showed up before we left...

Which was much fun!


Micah is walking now, so between his silky curls and his chunky legs, I was pretty much in Great-Aunt Heaven.


Roxie and Mackenzie.

More curls and a BIG smile!


Mrs. Faulkner, Mikie and Mr. Faulkner.


Mr. Faulkner, Sweet Mackenzie, Mrs. Faulkner and Micah.

It was a very nice Father's Day.

Mikie's Father's Day Celebration is going to be this coming Sunday at AllSteak in Cullman.

Austin and Melia were out of town last week for a special wedding, so we bumped it over a week so everyone could be together. I'll have pictures from that "event" next time!

RANDOMNESS #2 - There is a place called Coldwater Creek in Oxford.

It is exactly what it sounds like.

A little cold water creek...

And locals wade in it.

Mike showed it to me 30 years ago.

We waded in it.

When the kids came along, we took them to this little rock-bed creek.

They waded in it, too.

A tradition was born.

NOW, they have added picnic tables and a small, covered picnic area.

When you go to Coldwater Creek now, there are always families, older kids and sometimes...

You will spot a Faulkner or two.







Blog Linkage - Go to www.kellehampton.com and read yesterday's post entitled "Enjoying: Summer." When you get to the end of the post, you will see the words, "48 Creative Ways to Capture Water Fun." Click on the caption to see a bunch of ideas for summer picture takin'.

Beautiful!

Restaurant Review - Over Easy - I've been to this little breakfast spot twice (so far), and I'm planning on going again in the very near future.

They serve breakfast in a clean white table/white chairs/white booths kinda place...

And it is good.

The menu items are around $7 to $11. You have the "usual" breakfast favorites (bacon, eggs, pancakes, coffee, etc.), but there are some fun items to try, too.

The first time I went, I tried the Oatmeal Pancakes under Healthy Choices on the menu. They were very good. Fluffy and light!

The second time I went, I ordered the Pepé Le Toast. I will also be ordering this item the third, fourth and fifth time I go to Over Easy.

In fact, it may be the last item I ever eat at Over Easy.

It included one slice of sourdough French toast with sweetened cream goodness in the middle, topped with blueberry compote OR fresh strawberries, served with two eggs cooked to order and choice of meat.

No syrup necessary on the French toast.

It's just that good!

You can go to the new location at 2409 Acton Road, Vestavia, Alabama 35243, OR 358 Hollywood Boulevard, Birmingham, Alabama 35223. (I've only visited the one on Hollywood Boulevard.)

Oh...

And don't go on a Monday.

They are closed on Mondays!

Strawberry Poke Cake

You will need the following:

6 graham crackers, whole
1/2 box vanilla cake mix, prepared according to package
1 pound strawberries with tops removed
1 8-ounce block cream cheese, softened
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup milk
8 ounces whipped topping
Strawberries for garnish

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Spray a 9" × 9" baking pan with cooking spray.

3. Take 5 of the graham crackers and arrange them in the pan, breaking some of them to fill in the gaps.

4. Crush the remaining graham cracker and set aside.

5. Pour the vanilla cake batter on the graham cracker base, then bake for 25 to 30 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

6. Using the back of a wooden spoon, poke 4 rows of 4 holes in the cake, making 16 holes total.

7. In a large bowl, mash strawberries with a whisk until very fine. Add cream cheese and condensed milk, whisking until there are no large lumps.

8. Add the milk, stirring until smooth.

9. Pour the mixture over the cake and set until the cake has absorbed as much of the mixture as it can. Some of the mixture will still stay on top, which is okay.

10. Spread the whipped topping evenly on top.

11. Chill the cake anywhere from 3 hours to overnight.

12. Slice and serve with strawberries and the reserved graham crackers.

NOTE - Roxie made this cake for Bev's birthday celebration this past Monday night. It was VERY good!

Moist AND light!

Have a fantastic Thursday night. I will be talking to you soon.

Sincerely,

The Enchanting Belinda

P.S. By the way...

These two are expecting a baby in January of 2017.



Mike and I will have TWO grandchildren.

You might not be surprised to know...

We are more than a little thrilled.

.
And Judith is a little excited, too.

Mikie's Birthday, Judith Goes to the Splash Pad, The Birmingham List Contest AND Facebook Stuff (Eleven GREAT Mom and Pop Restaurants in Alabama)

Good Wednesday evening!

RANDOMNESS #1 - Mikie turned 55 Monday.

It's a big number, isn't it?

I can say that because I am only 54...

Which everyone knows is only a semi-big number.


Roxie had Auburn friends visiting from here and yon this past weekend, so when we ate with the girls at Habaneros after church Sunday, we decided to let the waiters put the big hat on Mike and sing him a pre-Happy Birthday song.

I think he wore the hat very well.


Later that afternoon, the family came over for cake and ice cream...

And presents.

It isn't a birthday without presents.


And a big birthday grin from Miss Judith!

RANDOMNESS #2 - Not only did Judith come to the party, but she spent the night!

Aunt Roxie and I took her to the Splash Pad for an hour before lunch, and great fun was had by all...

But mainly me, I think.






She preferred the "short" sprinklers at the pad.






And right after I took this picture, she wasn't allowed to partake of the Splash Pad water any longer.


After the Splash Pad fun, we headed home, dried off, changed clothes...

And I activated the curls.




The Little Chick is pretty in pink, isn't she?

The Birmingham List Contest

I told Roxie whenever she had girls home from college, I was going to have a list of fun Birmingham-type things to do for each one of them.

The goal is to visit The Faulkner House, AND cross as many items off the list in FOUR YEARS (or upon Graduation) as humanly possible.

The girl(s) who cross off the largest number of activities/places/restaurants, etc. in that length of time will receive special gift(s).

Our guests this weekend put a dent in the list of 99!


Susan, Roxie, Miranda and Julianna.


Visiting Vulcan...


AND picking fresh blueberries were just two of the things the girls did this weekend.

Going to the drive-in, shopping at The Shops at Grand River, eating Insomnia Cookies and trying a new breakfast restaurant were a few more.

Eleven GREAT Mom and Pop Restaurants in Alabama

Alabama is home to several large restaurant chains, but there’s something very special about a local “mom and pop” restaurant. The owners/servers really go out of their way to make you feel at home. Also, their made-from-scratch dishes are incredible!

NOTE FROM ENCHANTING BELINDA - I have eaten at Effina's Tuscan Grille on more than one occasion, and it is VERY good. I will try to cross a few of these other places off the list in the near future.

Well, that's all I have this lovely Wednesday. I'll talk to you again in a few days.

Sincerely,

The Enchanting Belinda

Nana B Stories, Pinterest Stuff (The Flour Game), Stick of Butter Rice AND Weekend Happenings

Good Friday afternoon!

RANDOMNESS #1 - I went through the drive-thru at McDonald's and picked up my 10:32 a.m. Friday morning medium, sugar-free, French vanilla, iced coffee.

It's kinda what I do.

And on Fridays, I usually have the same guy prepare AND hand me my beverage of choice.

Well, get this.

I am almost 115 percent sure when the guy handed me my coffee today, he said, "Love ya."

Not, "Thank you, and come again."

Not, "Have a nice day."

"Love ya."

Don't get me wrong.

It wasn't said in a romantic way. I am most definitely old enough to be this kid's super young Mom.

Yet it wasn't said in a flippant way either.

He said it with gusto, and a big grin.

You can imagine my dilemma.

Having declared my love to my one and only 28 and a half years ago, I do not flippantly throw around the phrase, "Love ya," to just anyone.

Mikie, children (mine and those I come across in my day-to-day travels), relatives and girlfriends receive these words on a regular basis, and when I utter them, I try to be sincere.

Really.

Truly.

I do.

This guy is most definitely a significant part of my life.

I have a rather important decision to make before next Friday.

Right now, it is between these two...

"I, too, am fond of you, Coffee Server Extraordinaire!"

OR, as The Chick would say...

"I like you like a fat kid likes cake."

I know. I know.

I'm going to have to find another McDonald's.

RANDOMNESS #2 - I attended a Baby Shower for my new great-nephew-to-come, Sawyer, this past Sunday, and I have two things to say...

He is going to be a very snappy dresser; AND...





I, along with many other people, cannot wait to meet him in person in August.


Katie, Stephanie and Bev.


Daddy and Mommy...

Or as I have been referring to them these past few years, Brad and Stephanie!

NANA B STORIES - I just wanted to let you know about a couple of activities that have REALLY, REALLY worked for me during my interaction with the two, three and four year-old crowd.

1. As you already know, the Water Table is a wonderful thing.

Wonderful!

I work with a two and three year-old who, with a little bit of "extra," will play with the water table for an hour...

Or more.

I start out with a little water in the water table. I use a LARGE plastic bowl (from The Dollar Tree) and fill the bottom with plastic frogs, fish, lizards and snakes. I cover them with half a can of shaving cream (also from The Dollar Tree). The kids "wash" all of the animals and put them in the clean water.

I then use the shaving cream plastic bowl to add two or three more bowls of water to the table.

Now, we're ready for food coloring. They pick the first color, second color, etc., etc. As I drop more and more color in the water, they stir it with their hands and arms.

When the water turns black (which it inevitably does), we tip the water table onto it's side causing a large waterfall.

Then, it is time to fill it up again and repeat the above process over and over until they start getting tired.

But, wait!

It is time for the big guns...

Measuring cups, drinking cups, more bowls, washrags, etc.

We pour, measure, pour some more and start washing anything and everything in the area...

Chairs, play cars, the deck floor, etc.

Are they still interested?

Yep.

Time for a good water table rinse and some "new" water...

And the Swedish Gummy Fish (also from The Dollar Tree).

Using toddler forks or easy-to-use "kid" tongs, let the kids fish for the Swedish Gummy Fish.

Let them fish by color first. "Let's catch ALL of the red fish!"

After they have caught all of the colors, it's time to release them back into the water and fish some more.

Just between you and me, your fish supply will dwindle the longer you play this little game.

I like to call it Swedish Fish Sushi!

Clothes are wet...

Kids are clean and a little tired...

And it's time for dry clothes, a snack and reading time.

2. For the four and six year-old crowd, we were recently working on a transportation "unit." As I was leaving the library after checking out books, I noticed a shelf of FREE magazines. I picked out five.

The next time we were together, we spent 15 minutes tearing out pictures of any and all kinds of transportation.

The tearing was wild and wonderful, but the pictures were HUGE.

I told the kids to pick a color for poster board...

RED. They picked RED!

I took the pictures home and trimmed them.

The next time I met with these particular kiddos, I came prepared with RED poster board, glue sticks and much smaller pics.

They spent 15 minutes independently working on a really, really cool "Transportation Poster."

3. Fly Swatter Painting is fun for all ages. Fifty-somethings included.

I use three paper plates and put a blob of different colored paint on each one.

Using white poster board and The Dollar Tree fly swatters, dip the swatter in a color and start slapping the paper.

And so on, and so on, and so on.

It doesn't take long, but you can make multiple paintings, and it is easy, breezy!

Pinterest Stuff

The Flour Game

To play this game (according to this family’s version), you fill a teacup with flour and pack it firmly. Flip it over onto a plate, and place a Lifesaver candy on the top of it.

Each person sitting in a circle takes a turn cutting the flour with a knife.

If you make the Lifesaver FALL during your cut, you have to fish it out with your mouth!

No hands allowed!

NOTE FROM ENCHANTING BELINDA - As you can imagine, I can't wait to try this one. It may be one of our 4th of July activities. (Blue plate, white flour, red Lifesaver.) I don't think I can actually wait until Christmas.

Stick of Butter Rice

You will need the following:

1 cup uncooked white rice (NOT instant)
1 can of condensed French onion soup
1 can of beef broth
1 stick of butter, sliced

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2. In a 9" x 9" baking dish combine rice, soup and broth.

3. Cut butter into thin slices and place on top of the mixture.

4. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

5. Remove cover and bake 30 minutes more.

I made this last night, and it was a hit. I'm pretty sure this is a side I will make again and again and again.

Weekend Happenings

1. Roxie is having some college friends over for a couple of days.

I am finishing up THE BIRMINGHAM LIST as we speak (100 Fun Things To Do Around the Magic City - Enchanting Belinda Style), and I will give them their individual copies tonight.

After Senior Year, the Chick who has the most things checked off her list will win a very special prize.

2. On Saturday, while the friends are doing this and that, and going hither and yon, I will be cooking, Estate Sale shopping and birthday party planning...

3. Because Mikie's 55th Birthday Celebration is happening this Sunday after church.

That's right.

He is wildly excited he will now be considered a "senior" at certain establishments, and will be given the dreaded "Senior Discount."

I am wildly determined to pay full price for everything as long as I possibly can.

At least until I am 70!

4. After all the party people leave the house Sunday afternoon, Judith is going to hang around and spend the night.

Happy, happy am I about this particular weekend.





Have a great weekend, Guys. I'll talk to you in a couple of days!

Sincerely,

The Enchanting Belinda

P.S. I am going to leave you with a few Charleston pics The Chick took last week.

Memorial Day Catch-Up, Blog Linkage, Quotable Quotes, Knock-Knock Jokes, Impossible Coconut Pie AND Judith Pics

Good Friday morning!

RANDOMNESS - Courtney's parents invited any and all Faulkners to their house last Sunday afternoon for lunch and some pool time. Roxie and I were the only two of the Gardendale Faulkners able to attend, but we had a nice, relaxing time around the water watching Judith and her cousin, Sarah Grace, frolic between the baby pool and the big blue pool.


The obligatory sister/brother selfie.

You can tell they're out of practice.


The also-obligatory back-of-the-baby-bathing-suit pic.

Ruffles and animal print and pink...

Oh, my!


The let's-give-Judith-a-Memorial-Day-mohawk pic.


Courtney.


Josh and Courtney.


One more sister/brother selfie...

Much better than the first.


And sweet Sarah Grace.

Hilarious Knock Knock Jokes for Kids

My guys were huge fans of the Knock Knock Joke.

HUGE.

And while Knock Knock jokes are not my favorite kind of humor, I appreciate the fact little boys will at one point in their young lives tell many, many, many knock knock jokes to patient mothers all over these United States of America.

That is just a cold, hard fact.

1. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Goliath. Goliath who? Goliath down, you look-eth tired!

2. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Broccoli? Broccoli who? Broccoli doesn’t have a last name, silly.

3. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Amish. Amish who? Really? You don’t look like a shoe!

4. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Canoe. Canoe who? Canoe come out and play with me?

5. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Isabel. Isabel who? Isabel working? I had to knock!

Impossible Coconut Pie

If you are a lover of egg custard, you will most certainly enjoy this pie.

If you are NOT a lover of egg custard, go no further.

You will need the following:

2 cups milk
1 cup desiccated coconut
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup plain flour
8 tablespoons butter or margarine 3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1. Place milk, coconut, eggs, vanilla, flour, margarine and sugar in blender. Mix well.

2. Pour into a greased and floured pie plate. Sprinkle nutmeg on top.

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Have a great weekend. The Chick is on her way back from a trip to Charleston, so I am very happy today.

Talk to you in a few.

Sincerely,

The Enchanting Belinda
