#ChristmasInJuly Day 24 #OldSchool #NativityStory


(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

 (Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

For Day 24 of "Christmas In July" blog post, I decided to share with all my blog readers this really "Old School" Children's Bible that has been read by me and my six siblings! Only I have yet to share this aging book with my son due to the pages coming apart and the modern "Jesus Storybook Bible" is a little more simple for him to understand Jesus and the Nativity Story! And yes, for the sake of  Race and Politics in the Bible esp the characters looking very Anglo Saxon, let's just focus on the message here read from a family heirloom!

This is the story of the Navity that I grew up with and now I teach my son with his children's Bible about Jesus not only at the Navity but throughout the Bible with his children's book!

#Southernfood on #SaturdayNight #Smothered #Cheddar #Bacon #Chicken


(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

In a greased baking dish using olive oil to prevent sticking, I placed several boneless chicken breast into this dish and seasoned them with only Weber Garlic & Herb Seasoning (no extra salt needed)!! Then I added chopped bell peppers, sliced sweet onions, and canned mushrooms on top then cooked one hour in the oven til breast are done!! Now on with the toppings below!

I was lucky to find this end of Irish Cheddar Cheese at my local Kroger which I used in this smoothered chicken dish!! Yummy! :)

 There was a little bit of thick hickory bacon in the fridge so I cooked enough to crumble on top of the cheese for this chicken dish!! Everything taste better with bacon on it!! :)

 Above is the finished Smothered Chicken with Melted Irish Cheddar Cheese and Crumbled Hickory Bacon on top!!  I served my chicken with fresh summer squash from my Mom's garden and creamy mashed potatoes for sides! So good! :)

 I was glad that I can make a similar dish that is made at chain resturant with a few ingredients in the kitchen plus plenty to serve for a few days!!

#ChristmasInJuly Day 23 #ChristmasGift of #ColoringBooks Featuring #Disney #Cars and #Avengers, and #TMNT


(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

For Day 23 of  my "Christmas In July" blog post, I look over to all the Crayola Color books that he has received over the years for my son's Christmas presents, particularly to balance out the toys Nathan would received from family, friends, and church folks!  I am please to say since last year that Nathan does show an interest in coloring and taking pride in displaying his coloring pages! I gently remind that "First, Then, Next, and Last" when he gets frustrated or wants to leave a picture half finished but always take great pride in writing his name on the page once he does a "Good Job"!!  My hope by next Christmas as an Autism Mom is to use up these books from Christmas past and maybe introduce my son to mature color books to continue his love of art!

Until next time...

#ChristmasInJuly Day 22 Holiday Inspirations for the #ChristmasDinner


(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

For Day 22 of my "Christmas In July" blog post, I am showing the various cooking magazines that helps inspire to try something new for the holidays, whether is "lighten up" version of holiday classic, a good Southern Christmas recipe, and now that we have a Fresh Market in make a wishlist of Christmas food that I would love to eat while nibbling one of their pastries! I hope this Christmas Holiday season instead trying to compete or suggest on that very Christmas Day, I would do it on weekend leading up to this Holiday because even I love it when my Mom cooks Christmas Dinner or decides on the Christmas Menu!

Until next time...

(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

For Day 21 of my "Christmas In July" Blog post, I liked to show you this painting that I had the previlege of doing with fellow ladies for Christmas Paint Night for a Ladies Night at a local church!  Although I didn't know them before, the ladies and myself quickly introduced ourselves, shared common interests which is mostly kids and surving the holiday season then remember our "me time" and Christian fellowship! We ate a potluck of delicious goodies during our coffee (or tea or hot chocolate) breaks as the art instructor introduced tonight's painting topics which one of them is a Christmas tree!! Inspiring individuality in our artwork with choice of colors and designs, I chosed  the colors and the dots representing the glow of the Christmas tree during the season!  I hope to do this again this upcoming Christmas season!

Until next time....
