Jimmy and Blazer

We have some new babies thier names are Jimmy and Blazer. We adopted them and they have been here a few weeks, hence the sparatic posts. One of them really needed to gain weight and the other was the pillsberry dough horse, so he needed a lot of expercise to turn that all into muscle. They are really starting to do well and I love every mintue that we get to spend with them. The girls love having horses in thier backyard and it is so neat to look out the window and see them out there.

You can pop it into the over now at 350 for 20 minutes covered, then remove the cover and add the left over swiss and parm cheese and continue baking uncovered till cheese is melted.

You could also freeze it, just make sure to keep your extra cheese with it so that you have it when its time to bake it up.

This recipe has been tested in my kitchen and is great.

Shrimp Dip

This recipe is always a hit when I have company or go to a party. Everytime someone invites me to there house they say “as long as you bring the Shrimp Dip” or if I invite people over they say “only if your going to have shrimp dip.” They love it and can’t get enough of it. I enjoy it best on club crackers or pretzels.

1 lg Philadelphia Cream Cheese package

2 tablespoons Katsup

1/2 cup Mayo

2 tablespoons Dry Minced Onions  (must be dry do not sub for chopped onion)

1 can sm shrimp pieces, drained

Dump altogether and stir. Cover and let sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours, so that the flavors can blend and the onions can rehydrate, but 12 hours is best.  Serve and enjoy.

It’s slow going

….but we are getting back to normal here. We have been busy with catching up on all the laundry and other things around the house. Plus we all have Spring Fever. I miss posting and reading blogs. I have read all of you who I subscribe to as often as possible to stay up to date but there are still so many unread posts and you all keep adding to it. lol.. I am hoping to atleast be back to the daily posts like meal planning Monday, and wordless wed this upcoming week, and hopefully back into the full swing of it all the following week.

Slowly Coming Back

Well I got my water and electric back the other day. Now my house is trashed so if I am MIA a bit longer it is because I have to get this house back into shape. On top of that the kids are still out of school due to the disaster so that makes things slow going. I will have pics to post for you soon.  I hope to get thru the 150-200 posts that I missed out on with my Google Reader here in the next few days, so watch for me I will be coming by and saying hi. Love you all and be back to regular posting soon I hope.
