Pretty, Delicious and In Memory…


I’ve been away for a few days, so I’m catching up tonight.  Just warning… LOL

New Blooms In My Garden



My husband picked squash and peppers from the veggie garden this week.  So my recipe is using some of the veggies.    
Squash Casserole
4 cups sliced squash
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 cylinder of crushed saltine crackers
1 cup shredded 4 cheese mix
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons butter
  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Place squash, onion and peppers in a large skillet over medium heat.  Pour in a small amount of water, cover and cook until the squash is tender, about 10 minutes.  Drain well and place in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix cracker crumbs and cheese.  Mix half of cracker/cheese mix with the squash.
  4. In a small bowl mix milk and eggs together.  Add to squash/cracker/cheese mix.  Stir in melted butter and season with salt and pepper. 
  5. Spread into a 9×13 baking dish.  Sprinkle with remaining cracker/cheese mix and dollop with the 2 tablespoons of butter.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until lightly browned.

David made a bench for the front, out of some recycled wood from my daughter’s room.  Here’s a pick, I took it before it was all cleaned up from saw dust and such, but I think it turned out nice.

As the weekend rolls around and the grills are fired up, remember why you have the freedom to grill and have fellowship with family and friends.    Remember those who gave willingly and sacrificed their life for freedom.

I think I’m caught up now… I’m working on a small patriotic angel wall hanging for my cubicle and hope I get it done this weekend.   I hope to have pics of that and a lap quilt to show soon.

Here’s wishing you a Wonderful Memorial Weekend!!

God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
