Jessa Duggar Reveals Her Kids Love to Sneak Off to Jana’s Garden When Visiting Jim Bob and Michelle’s Home

Caught green-handed! Counting On star Jessa Seewald (née Duggar) revealed her kids love to sneak off to Jana‘s garden when visiting Jim Bob and Michelle‘s home. 

The TLC alum, 27, sweetly apologized to her sister after her 17-month-old daughter, Ivy, picked the petals off Jana’s blooming flowers in a video she posted via Instagram on Thursday, October 15. 

“Nine out of 10 times, when a kid goes missing at Granny’s house, we know just where to find them,” Jessa quipped in her caption. “Young and old alike love going down to Jana’s garden for a fresh snack.”

Jessa’s followers were getting a kick out of the clip and many thought it was precious that Ivy tried to return the flower petals. “Roses break very easily! And Ivy did try to put them back. So cute,” one social media user wrote. “Maybe Jana can one day help her little niece to dry some petals,” another suggested.

The mom of three previously gushed over Jana’s fine handiwork on an episode of their family’s reality show. “She has this thing laid out so perfectly, she’s built this whole chicken coop down there. [Jana]’s got this outdoor entertaining space with these Italian string lights and it’s beautiful. It’s a great hangout place in the evenings — we love to go down there and sit around,” Jessa said.

Just last week, Jana spent time with her nephews Spurgeon, 4, and Henry, 3. “Storytime with the best!” Jessa wrote alongside the adorable snap, to which her sister replied, “You are too sweet! I always love hanging out with you all!”

While some fans have thrown shade at Jana for still living at home with her parents, the TV personality’s brother Jason showed support by defending her from haters in July.  

“I genuinely don’t understand why your younger brothers can move out of the family home, but you can’t take a trip with friends unchaperoned,” one person commented on Jana’s Instagram pic. “I’m sorry, I genuinely don’t understand how you think you know about all the trips she takes,” Jason clapped back. 

It’s clear Janas family loves having her around!

The Star Wars sequel trilogy storyline that sadly never panned out

Published

We see a hint of this storyline come to pass while the “good guy” crew is searching for the Sith Wayfinder in the old Death Star. The gang runs into a group of First Order deserters led by Jannah, and Finn eventually joins them in the big horse charge on the Sith home planet later in the film, but that’s about it. In Trevorrow’s version of the story, Finn was supposed to go full-on revolutionary. He and Rose Tico were meant to lead an uprising of First Order rebels in a kind of class war that would’ve made Karl Marx a proud Star Wars fan as they free the capital planet of Coruscant from the First Order’s influence. The soldiers in the First Order are conscripted, and many of them, like Finn in Episode VII, don’t want the job. They’re as much captives as they are soldiers, and Finn was going to set them free.

Ingredients

—————————————–

  • ½ cup of buckwheat flour
  • ½ cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of oat OR almond milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon of hemp oil
  • ¼ teaspoon each of salt and ground cinnamon
    • 8 oz (1 tub) of Kite Hill Ricotta
    • 8 oz of apricot preserves
    • 2 tablespoons of agave nectar
    • 1 tablespoon of hemp hearts
    • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

    STRAWBERRIES

    • 1-½ cup of fresh strawberries, quartered
    • 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar
    • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

    ALMOND BUTTER SAUCE

    • ¾ cup of creamy almond butter
    • ⅓ cup of oat OR almond milk
    • 1 tablespoons of agave nectar
    • 1-½ cups of So Delicious Cocowhip Lite
    • 1 tablespoons of hemp hearts

    —————————————–

    1.) Begin by making the batter for the crepes. Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend the batter until you reach a smooth lump free consistency, think a touch thinner than heavy cream. If needed, fix the consistency with a tablespoon of water at a time.

    2.) if you don’t have a blender, you can also whisk the ingredients together in a bowl but make sure that the end result is lump free. Cover the crepe batter with plastic wrap and set aside on the counter for 40 minutes. This helps develop the gluten in the batter so that your crepes don’t fall apart when cooking.

    3.) While the batter rests, prepare the strawberries by combining the cut berries, coconut and sugar. Toss them together with your hand and bruise them a little so that the natural pectin comes out, combines with the sugar crystals and the lemon juice, and creates a sauce. Cover and set aside in the fridge.

    7.) Make the filling by mixing in a bowl the plant based ricotta, apricot preserves, agave, vanilla and hemp hearts. Cover and set aside. (no need to refrigerate)

    8.) Move on to the almond butter sauce by combining the almond butter, oat milk, half of a banana and agave nectar in a blender. Purée everything until smooth. Transfer into a bottle if you like and store it in the fridge.

    9.) Now for the crepes. Pour about ¼ cup of batter into a cool non-stick pan and swirl it around using your wrist to turn the pan into a circular motion, turn the heat up to medium and cook for 1 minute. Using a spatula, flip the crepe and cook for another 45 seconds to a minute. Transfer the cooked crepes onto a parchment paper lined tray. Make sure there is a layer of paper in between each layer of buckwheat crepe. Repeat until the batter is finished, you will get about 12 small crepes.

    10.) Fill each crepe with the apricot almond ricotta hemp filling, fold into half-moon shapes, roll into logs or fold twice into triangular pockets, your choice. Place two on each plate, top with a spoonful of strawberries, a drizzle of almond butter sauce, a teaspoon of hemp hearts and a dollop of frozen Cocowhip. Garnish with a sprig of mint for aesthetics, and serve!

    —————————————–

    • The first crepe is known to be the “tester”. So if this falls apart, trust me, this is not the first time this has happened to somebody! Keep trying, feel out the batter, if it’s too thick, add a touch of water and repeat the cooking process.
    • It is essential that you use a non-stick pan or a crepe pan. Invest in one, it will not disappoint!
    • Resting the batter for at least 40 minutes is crucial. If you have the time, you can even rest the batter overnight for optimum results.
    • Sub any type of preserves in this recipe. Strawberry, blueberry, or grape jam work fantastic in this recipe.

    —————————————–

    • What is buckwheat flour? Despite its name, buckwheat does not contain any gluten. They belong to a food group called pseudocereals that include such ingredients as quinoa and amaranth. Commonly introduced as a superfood, buckwheat is known for its high mineral and antioxidant content. Its benefits may include improved blood sugar control. Buckwheat flour is widely used in gluten-free baking with other types of nut or grain flours to mimic whole wheat baking. This recipe calls for both flour to provide texture and flavor and is a great gateway recipe that includes the super grain.
