Clean and Split Jerk PR

As I sit here jealous my hubby went to the Saturday morning CrossFit class, I thought I would reminisce about yesterdays class because I have found my new favorite move! We did clean and split jerks. It was a first for me, I have done clean and jerks before but never a split jerk.
We started out with the normal warm up, stretching and skipping then a few rounds of sit ups, push ups, goblet squats and pull ups. Then worked on ring dips. Which I cannot even do yet, so i do a scaled version.

The beginning is near



The time has come again. Hunting season is here. At the moment it is only bow allowed and we do not do bow but some of our hunting friends are already out, so it has begun! Plan have already started with trips but this year will be my first year in the bush. 
At the end of last year I went with my sister in law and a friend and we are got our C.O.R.E: The Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Education program in British Columbia's which is a hunter education program. Which is basically a hunters license and what you need to hunt. 
I have not been hunting before, besides day trips with the family. It will be an interesting year for sure, thats if I do get out.

Canning Apple Pie Filling

We went on a little weekend trip recently and the place we were staying at had nice big apple trees out back. Even though we have a few already at home, I couldn't help but pick a cooler full for our trip home. They are huge and gorgeous, so I decided I would can a bunch. After hymning and hawing over what I wanted to do, I started thinking about doing apple pie filling but my canning cookbook with over 400 recipes, only had 2 and they just had too many ingredients and I wanted something a bit more simple. Then I stumbled upon a recipe on Pintrest and it seemed perfect!
I have not canned many time before but I am working on canning more, so this was a good starting point.

Freezing Banana Muffins for Lunches

Making big bates of banana muffins and freezing them for lunches is something I did last year and after saving up all my banana, I decided to do it again.

Banana muffins and breads freeze so well and it being a bread, it thaws quite fast making it GREAT for lunches for kids and even the hubby. So it can be a pre-made lunch item thats easy and versatile.
