Taking Time To Remember


My wish for you is to wake up each day and be grateful.  No matter how bad you think your day is, please remember....you get to wake up and live your life however you choose.  Each day is a choice...a gift.  All these people on 9/11/01 woke up, thought they were going to work....or flying home to see their families, or on their way to a business trip....only to find out that would be their last adventure on this earth.  Though they are now in a much better place than we are, we can choose to make Heaven on earth.  We can still choose to make things better.  God Bless.

Fabric Giveaway!

A Note From Miss Sadie

Now how can you honestly resist this sweet face?  I am so in love with my little girl!

Anyway...Sadie knows how much I love to sew.
She wanted me to share this little giveaway with you.

And if you would like to purchase any fabric:
I buy from her shop as much as I can.  Kym's customer service is outstanding and her fabric is wonderful!!!  Plus you get $10.00 off an order once
you've spent $100.00 AND her yardage & shipping rates are 
extremely reasonable.
AND, as a gift, she sends you these little gifts called
Thread Tamers, which hold the thread nicely on your
spools.  No more loose thread hanging out!
LOVE them!
Now go enter the giveaway!!
Enjoy!
PS...Julie L...Sadie wanted me to tell you, "Hello" and would like
to thank you for making me put her picture on here.
LOL!

Just Too Pretty...

Tonight was just gorgeous....it was a cool evening and I love going outside to watch the sunset.  Living in the country is just so incredibly peaceful.  I love coming home after a stressful day of work and just sit and listen....at dusk it's so quiet...OK....so my little puppy princess Sadie is a bit of an adventure in herself, but she does like walking around with me while I take pictures.  Stubby, my little king (he's 11, so he deserves to be the 'king' dog) is just happy to sit and rest while Sadie leaves him alone.  :o)  So, with that said, I will share my pictures of country life around my house that I took tonight.  Enjoy the peace & quiet and even a rainbow! 




Peppers! Peppers! Peppers!

So my sister and I planted a garden together this year.  We have had so much rain here that it hasn't had a banner year.  The one thing that did produce really well are the bell pepper plants.  But that's OK!!  We love peppers!

So I bet you're wondering what I did with them!  Wellllllllll...........

I cooked 2 lbs of 90% hamburger.
Added 12 oz of light cream cheese
About a cup of parmesan cheese
A family size box of chicken Rice-O-Roni (prepared)
A packet of dry Hidden Valley Ranch dressing

I cleaned 6 peppers, removing all the seeds and 'stuff', then stuffed them with the filling.  I sprinkled them with cheddar/jack cheese and baked them at 350 for about an hour (I put a little bit of water in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan and covered with foil ).  And....surprise!!!  Here's what I got!


Oh my goodness was it ever yummy!!!  Jesse girlfriend made these for us once.  She's an AMAZING cook.  Though I didn't make them exactly as she did, they still came out so yummy!!  But I still had some extra peppers & filling.  I took three more peppers - cleaned them and cut them in half and wrapped each one individually and put them in a gallon freezer bag, so I could freeze them for a quick supper on a night I was busy.  I just cleaned the rest of the peppers, cut them in half, and put them in bags 'unstuffed' for pepper steak, stuffed pepper casserole, etc...


Let me know if you try this recipe!!  Enjoy!!
