Ask Away!

Posted by Stephanie Harrison on

Happy Ask a Stupid Question Day. Did you know this is an actual day?  Well it is...It's your opportunity to speak up, and to ask all those questions you were afraid to ask. All those questions that you thought were too stupid or dumb to ask, have been piling up all year long. Today is the day to unload them. C'mon give it a try. Nobody will laugh...we hope. :)

This holiday was created by teachers in the 1980s to encourage students to ask more questions in the classroom. According to HolidayInsights.com, "at the time, there was a movement by teachers to try to get kids to ask more questions in the classroom. Kids sometimes hold back, fearing their question is stupid, and asking it will result in ridicule."

Now, I for one, terribly dislike the word "stupid"...but I like the concept of this "holiday".  Sometimes we are afraid to ask questions for fear of the answer or the way we will be perceived by our peers/others.  So today is your day, you can ask Glamour Farms any questions at all.  We will answer all of them to the best of our ability...styling questions, beauty questions, family questions, Faith questions, anything.  Please keep it clean ladies!  lol!! Feel free to email me at stephanie@glamourfarms.com or comment below.  I'm ready for your questions and looking forward to talking with you!  Ready, Set, GO!!!

Like I said on Friday, our weekend was quite busy.  Here's some pictures for you to enjoy of our weekend and family.  I didn't get all of the pics taken I intended too...but here's a sampling! :)  (I had my 20 year class reunion and forgot to take pictures!)

 

Elizabeth and Keith (my sister/co-owner and my brother-in-law) are in the process of building their new home, so much of their extra time is spent there on the weekends. Here's a picture of their kids (Garrett, Ava, & Halle) at the building site..surprisingly Halle (littlest one) is not in the middle of that big mud puddle...yet!

Mom (co-owner) and Dad have been on a much needed road trip this last week.  They have visited many northern places from Fish Creek, Wisconsin to Mackinaw Island, Michigan.  They have been going non stop since July and needed some down time. Mom has not stopped since losing Grandma Georgia last month and a vacation is just what the Dr. ordered.  :)  Now she gets to come back to this: 

WELCOME HOME MOM!!! :)  Can't wait to have you back to our controlled chaos! xoxoxoxo

Lexi (my oldest) had a sheep show in Indiana this weekend and did quite well...good weekend overall!

The weather is starting to cool off here and I am looking forward to getting my fall recipes going in full swing.  Here is one of my family favorites I thought I would share with you all. It's an easy, fast one...a semi homemade, which is exactly my style!  Do you have any easy, quick recipes you can share?  If so, share and I will enter you into a GF GIVEAWAY for sharing.  Winner Announced on Wednesdays Blog!!

  • Here is the recipe for a family favorite:

    Easy crockpot beef stew

    2 pounds lean beef stew meat
    2 Tablespoons sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1 lb bag baby carrots
    4-5 medium sized potatoes peeled and quartered
    1 can tomato soup (undiluted)
    1 can of peas (drained)

    Place meat in bottom of crockpot. Sprinkle sugar, salt, and pepper over meat evenly. Dump in the bag of baby carrots and spread evenly. Top with potatoes. Evenly spread the can of tomato soup over the top of the potatoes (undiluted!-trust me! It will be fine!). Cook on low for 6-8 hours. 30 min before serving dump in drained can of peas and stir contents.
    Serve with warm biscuits or bread. Enjoy!
