So if there is a BIG space between my this picture and my text - someone please tell me what I'm doing WRONG. It doesn't show up when I'm typing, but after I post and check it out it's there. It's driving me nuts.
Jean showed us her new slippers that she whipped up and the other 2 showed us this months bible block along with the one who is doing the same design in mini - she know's there's a mistake in the mini
And I had my first rhubarb yummy of the season - rhubarb crisp which I didn't take a pic of - very yummy Penny
Yesterday was our scrapping day. We met at the local scrapbook store this time around. I told the girls that I made a decision not to continue with the scrapbooking. I just can't keep up and was feeling guilty and anxious about it. So I'm going to make cards when we get together from now on and just enjoy their friendship and their awesome layouts. I got 3 generic cards made that I can use for whatever occasion and a special card that I can't show because it's for a BIG birthday and she reads my blog. Here's what I can show you along with a picture of the store and the scrappy peeps
Last night I also hosted my homemakers group. Could I been in more groups, LOL. This group has been together around 15 years and lately it's been getting harder and harder to get together. But where in hanging in there. It started as a craft group years and years ago and has now moved into a social get together of just talking and catching up. Instead of calling us a craft group, we are now the carafe group because there's usually a glass of the grape involved. I made a real hip slapper dessert that I need to share with you all. It's not a new one - buy lordy it's a keeper
I'm starting to think that everything I make involves cream cheese because it's in this one people.
- 1 box brownie mix
- 1- 8 oz and 1- 3 oz cream cheese soft
- 2 cups powder sugar
- 1 16 oz cool whip - divided
- 2 cups cold milk
- 1- 3.9 oz box chocolate instant pudding
- 1/2 cups chopped pecans
Mix milk and pudding together and mixing until smooth and chill for 5 minutes or whatever.
Beat cream cheese and sugar for 2 minutes. Fold in 2 cups of cool whip and spread on top of brownies. Pour pudding mixture on top of the cream cheese layer and spread. Spread remaining cool whip on top of pudding layer and sprinkle with pecans. Chill for several hours.
Lordy I need to get the rest out of the house today. Lib is stopping by to drop something off - I think she needs to take some home and FAST.
