Delicious Baked (GIANT) Green Beans

Green beans hide as they get big enough to pick. At least mine do! Have you ever wondered what to do with those green beans that hid until they were GIANT?
I found a good crock pot baked bean recipe that cooked them into deliciousness!
Note: Don’t use green beans that are hard and dry or have a brown line down them, just the big ones.

#CancelNetflix: I Apologize. Do you agree with my reasons?

#CancelNetflix

I have joined the #cancelNetflix bandwagon.

If Netflix loses subscribers perhaps that it will send a message against sex trafficking, pedophilia, and the exploitation of women. But I regress. I need to apologize to my family and readers first.
I’m Sorry. I’m really sorry. I should’ve canceled Netflix long before this. Please forgive me.
  • I knew better.
  • I know better.
  • I try to apply the Bible to my life– but in this area, I had not set a good example of “learning not the ways of the world.”
  • I have not been a good example of “Be ye holy for I am holy.” or “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.”
  • or “I will set no wicked thing before my eyes.”
  • I have not been matching up what I say I believe with what I do.
  • Please forgive me. I’m going to do better.

I LOVE Homeschooling SALES!!!

HOMESCHOOLING SALE!

 

There are very good boxed all-in-one curriculums out there. I used mainly one curriculum: BJU Press Homeschool curriculum for all my kids K thru 12. It is a Christian curriculum. I knew some people that worked there and we really liked it.

It is a curriculum where the subjects are integrated (like the spelling words are in the reading and science lessons.) You can do parent led where you teach or purchase the DVD’s or get the same material through the computer.

For any of those ways, there are recommendations for grading or they do it for you. I love the BJU curriculum because they have thought of everything. Subjects are well put together, they list tons of extra resources if you need it and all the prep work is done. On day one, you teach lesson one, etc. So the value of that kind of complete curriculum was worth every penny to me.

Yes, that’s right! It’s sale time! You can see their curriculum here!
