No internet....

We went out of town over the weekend for a family dove hunt....and when we got back I found that our broadband modem had totally quit! So, I've had no internet till last night when I finally got the replacement in the mail! No email, nothing! My Google reader had close to 200 posts when I went to check them today! Wow... I'll try to post for real soon, as I am looking forward to showing you what I made for our trip this weekend....they turned out sooooo cute!

I did it....

....all by myself! Look at the bottom of my page....I put a site meter on here! All by myself! My sister will be so proud of me! LOL (and I even changed the style....woohoo!)

Recipe Swap #2!

Updated!!! I added the flour and the correct amount of milk....OOPS!

Just for's another recipe for the GCC Recipe Swap....

Karen's Quiche

3 eggs
3/4 cups plain/all-purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups Milk
chopped bacon/ham (to taste...1/2 cup?)
corn (1/2 can?)
1 cup grated cheese
Mix together eggs, milk, and flour. Throw in bacon, corn, and cheese, and mix all together. Pour into a greased dish and bake in a 180*C/375*F oven for 30 - 40 mins.

You can also switch the bacon and corn for spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, or whatever your little heart desires! I think I am going to go and make this for lunch....all this talk of food has made me hungry. Enjoy!

Recipe Swap!

Hello! This is the second time that I have participated in Gayle's Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe can get the last recipe here. This one is a vegetable side dish, that I originally got from the book Fit For Life... Welcome to my new blog!

Sweet Basil Carrots
12 medium carrots
3 Tbspns sweet butter (I use regular salted butter!)
2Tbspn pure maple syrup
1-2 tsp fresh basil (I use dried...start with one tsp)
1/4 tsp sea salt
Slice carrots into rounds about 1/8" thick, and cook for about 10 minutes (steam or microwave), melt remaining ingredients together, and pour over drained carrots, stirring to coat well. Serves 4-6

The original recipe directions were more complex, but this way is so much easier! LOL Hope you enjoy it! Make sure you leave a recipe over at Gayle's too....that way I can try yours!

Welcome to the New Blog!

I decided to start a new blog, and eventually plan on making my old one private for family/friend use so that I can post more pictures without it making me nervous as to who is visiting! For now though it is still public here. I also plan on updating this one's design, once I can figure it all out...or my sister gets her land line or internet and can help me out! ;)

For anyone new who may stop by, Welcome! Here's a quick introduction....I am a mum/mom of four children 8 and under. I live in Texas but was born and raised in Australia....hence the name of this blog TexAus momma! My name is Narelle. On this blog I will be using nicknames for my kids, and ask that friends use these when commenting please. My oldest daughter is Iddybiddy (8), then I have a son, Jorge(6), another daughter Jekkie (5), and another son Jazz (2). My husband, (don't have a nickname for him is a wonderful, godly, supportive man whom I love deeply. We met in Australia, married in Australia, and then moved to Texas (where he is from), and have lived here for about 7 years, and 2 years in Australia's capital, Canberra. (NOT I'm sure that I will share more as I blog, but for now, I am sick of talking about myself! Feel free to ask questions.
