You will notice a hint of Christmas still left in this 2011 home.
My M and I made this pink candy cottage...
(the boys made a tootsie roll cabin...with brown bear included).
Every time I go to throw it out I just can't.
We giggled and whispered and had the very best time.
She is as sweet as all of the candy on that gingerbread house!
Letting the memory of Christmas and the birth of Jesus linger.
He has come to bring GREAT news!
Not gonna pack him away with the ornaments!
Going to share his good news every chance I get.
On to house holdish like things...
The cork board above I made..real easy...I bought the frame already done at Hobby Lobby (LOVE),
and I added burlap to the cork board (found one to fit right inside the frame).
Really that easy!
It just keeps hold of recipes and reminders!
I know I told you I would share my recipes from our dinner with blog friends last night...
I was having so much fun I forgot to take a picture...can you believe it!
Anyway the menu was...
(btw the sauce for shrimp cocktail is ketchup and horseradish...that's it...really yummy)
Grilled romaine lettuce
(Olive oil, salt pepper...grill lightly...then reduce balsamic vinegar till syrup like, drizzle add blue cheese dressing...and tiny chopped tomatoes...yum!)
(marinated in honey and teriyaki)
(zucchini, onion, orange pepper, and carrots)
Roasted chive potatoes...with roasted garlic and chives...and of course butter!
It was great fun and great company...very blessed!
Love and a few random thoughts,
