Ultimate Blog Party the 2013 edition

Photobucket

The Ultimate Blog Party is drawing to a close.  But it is not too late to enter to win some of the fabulous prizes.  Of course, the whole point is to visit other blogs and make new friends.  The linky lists will be available for checking out some new-to-you blogs in the months to come.

This is my second year participating and I have already found many new-to-me blogs.  I even "know" some of those offering prizes for the giveaways.  Thanks to blogging, the world is getting smaller.  I love this easy way to grow community!

I am a homeschooling homesteading mama to six children.  The lines are often blurred between homeschooling and homesteading and life.  It all runs together and is our lifestyle.  I find a lot of great ideas, encouragement and help through reading blogs.  I hope to give back in the same way I have received - -that is my goal in blogging.

Some of my favorite things to share are recipes.  I like cooking great food from scratch so that is what you will find in the recipes I share.  One of our absolute favorites is cinnamon rolls.  These are so rich we try to limit how often we make them, but so easy and quick it's hard to say no.

I also love learning -- oh and teaching -- geography with food.  I did a series sharing recipes along the way of some of our favorite ways to "eat around the world".  Be sure to check them out for recipes from Germany, India and more.

I also love to read in my free time.  Yes, I said free time.  I have to make time to read before going to sleep.  Sometimes it is only 5 minutes before I am nodding off.  Other nights, I'll be in the midst of such a great book, I'm up 'til all hours of the night.

So, that's a bit about me.  Be sure to go enter the giveaways, link up your own blog or find some new friends through the other blogs linked up.  It's a party - mingle!

I’m late! I’m late! I’m stopping by from the UBP13. I have got to check out your 'eat around the world' series! I hope you stop by our party for a slice of warm banana bread and cold milk.
Hugs,
Cathi
