I demoed a new recipe last week at the store called "Cherry cream cheese spread". 1 pkg of softened cream cheese, 1 tablespoon of diced maraschino cherries, 1 teaspoon of juice from cherries,&

1/4 cup of powdered sugar. Mix well and serve on bagels or toast or what we did was Ritz crackers. It's so pink and pretty, would look so pretty for Christmas morning! Blessings!

Week in review

Well, the hunting season is officially over for 2011! We got 5 deer for the freezer, making Italian sausage, maple breakfast sausage, fresh sausage and brats this coming week! Kora and Lily came with Kurt, Olivia was ill and stayed home with Mommy(Hi, Kate)! Shealyn and Alex went to their Dad's. We had a very nice Thanksgiving, but missed the others that weren't here! I'm in the decorating mood, but I'm not sure if I will put up a tree or not! I was visiting over at Beth Moore's blog around Wed., she was asking for favorite recipes. There were 558 replies, not all recipes, but a few stood out to me. One was "Maw-Maw's Corn Casserole". It's a pretty easy and straight forward recipe, 2-15 oz. cans of whole cron, 2-15oz of creamed corn, 16 oz of sour cream, 2 pkgs of Jiffy corn muffin mix, and 1 stick of butter. Cut up the butter and place pieces of butter in 9x13 pan, put pan

in oven as it preheats to 350. Mix the other ingredients together and pour over melted butter. Bake for 40 minutes and serve warm! YUM!!!! Blessings!

Happy Thanksgiving

Good morning everyone! I pray that families are enjoying the day together and the food! We will eat this evening around 6 pm. Erika is bringing the desserts and I will do the rest because I like doing it all!!! Lily and Kora are here to help set the table, I can't wait to watch the Macy's parade with them! I love the parade! Sometimes we talk about what we are thankful for around the table, so this year maybe we will talk about what we aren't thankful for, like no school or I don't have to work! So, Happy Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for all of you who read my ramblings! Blessings!

We received about 4-6 inches of snow yesteday. It did put a little hamper on the traffic for the craft show! I sold a lot of fudge and cookies, which I use to buy our grandchildren gifts for Christmas. I did get a beautiful gift for my sweet daughter-in-law, too! She is the best wife and mom, I don't get to see her very much, but know how busy she is these days! Well, that's all from here. I know these are short posts, but that's me, too the point! Blessings!

My cold is almost gone and I missed only one day of work. I have been busy making fudge for the craft sale this weekend at the American Legion hall in Spooner, please come as there are so many wonderful crafters there! Also, Vicki from Simply in Trego, called and ordered some fudge for her open house on Friday night, so please go up there and see Vicki for a great evening with your friends! I also made some Russian Tea cookies to sell this year, so I'm hoping to go home empty handed! Gordon has taken my camera so I have no pictures of fudge or cookies to show off for you! Blessings!

hot dogs and beans

So, I'm still feeling quite out of it for cooking with this cold, so tonight is the most gourmet dinner I could manage to cook for us, Hot dogs and beans! Yeah, the great old stand by and I love them dogs! I try to buy(when on sale) Hebrew National Hot Dogs, I mean they are so good! They are far the best tasting around(okay Nathan's are good too)! They are a beef frank and I think that is the taste I'm looking for, no fillers! I opened a can of Bush's beans and had to laugh thinking about the dog talking about selling the recipe! Here's hoping you all don't get this cold from anyone! Blessings!

I am home today with a cold, at least I think it's a cold, but my head hurts! I have been up since 2:30a.m. stuffed up and not able to sleep. I hope to crash here sooon! But since I am home, I decided to make some soup, maybe to clear up my sinuses and mood! The photo doesn't do the soup justice, but I can smell it and I am getting hungry! I used onions from our garden, celery, shredded carrots, chicken breast and some orzo! I love orzo in soup. Blessings!

Bagel chip dip

Yesterday's demo was called "bagel chip dip." It uses Old English cheese spread by Kraft, cream cheese and garlic powder. So the recipe is: 2 jars of Old English Cheese spread, 2- 8oz. packages of cream cheese(softened), and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder. Mix well together( I micorwave the cream cheese for 30 seconds or less to really cream well) and chill for 1 hour before serving. Use bagel chips or mini rye bread or Triscuit cracker. Hugs and blessings!
