Thursday’s treasures link party

It’s time for Thursday’s Treasures. I’m so glad you all came and linked up last week. I was sick as a dog and didn’t do any cooking or baking since last week’s party. I’m not sure what I had but it’s mostly gone now except for a cough. I probably lost 10 pounds from just not wanting to eat. I think the worst thing about being sick is having the hubby and the kids in the kitchen instead of me. I wanted them to eat but they just don’t clean up the way I would. I finally got in there today and scrubbed everything down, put things away where they needed to go, took inventory and I’ll be back in the kitchen tomorrow.

On the nice side, I was truly babied by everyone in the house. My youngest (10 years old) I think has a calling as a nurse. She enjoyed coming in and taking my temperature every 1/2 hour, getting me more water or juice, making sure I was covered up. Everyone pitched in so I could get the rest I must have needed since I spent most of the time asleep.

So lets get this party going. Here are the features from last week.

Roasted Garlic Potato Soup from Yesterfood
Strawberry Milkshake Cupcakes from Annie’s Noms
Chicken Pot Pie Soup from the Sunflower Supper Club
Banana Chobani Funky Monkey Smoothie from Cupcakes and Kale Chips
Chocolate Cherry Cookies from The Plaid and Paisley Kitchen
Leprechaun Bark from Couponing and Cooking
Cherry Chocolate Delight from Chatting over Chocolate
Classy Wire Hiding Spot from Believe and Inspire
