New Year’s Treat – Haystacks

Good morning! As we get ready to head to our New Year’s Eve festivities, I have something easy for you to make that will wow your guests and tastes great. My version of haystacks.

Here’s what you need:

  • 40 Large Marshmallows
  • Stick butter
  • Chocolate Morsels (Can be milk chocolate, white chocolate or dark)
  • 6 Cups Golden Grahams Cereal
  • Wax paper/Parchment paper

In a large stew pot melt 1/2 stick of butter. Then add 40 large marshmallows. Stir until creamy. Remember to watch your heat or you’ll scorch the marshmallows.

Now, add the chocolate morsels until it’s chocolatey enough for you. Some like less, some like more. I usually add almost half a bag. After your morsels are melted into the marshmallow mixture, add Golden Grahams and mix until coated. It’s similiar to Rice Krispy Treats.

Lay out a long sheet of wax paper/parchment paper, then pour mixture out on it. Spread it out a little to cool. Once it’s cooled enough to handle, break off pieces and roll into balls. Some people press them into a large sheet, then cut into squares. But my family loves the tennis ball size.

Now enjoy!

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

The Night Before the Night Before Christmas…

It was the Night Before the Night Before Christmas and all through the house everyone was stressed. The Christmas tree was almost bare of needles and the Angel on top was leaning. Dad was rared back relaxing and mom was busy cleaning. The air was filled with the smells of baking. Presents were piled all under the tree, while the kids giggled and smiled with glee. In a little over 24 hours Old St. Nick would be making a visit. It was almost too much to bare.

Well, it’s been a couple of days since my last post, but I’ve been busy catching up with Christmas errands. I’ve finally finished with shopping and wrapping. Was going to finish with the baking tonight, but forgot to buy extra eggs at the store, so I guess tomorrow will find me baking and cooking.

Friday night was our traditional get together with my two step children and step grandson. We do this every year. It’s a time of lots of sweets, hot chocolate and Christmas movies. I always make a loaf of homemade bread that I time to come out of the oven at just the right moment. It was a lot of fun. Our son always enjoys this time with his step siblings and nephew.

Hope all is well with everyone as they gear up for Christmas Eve!

 

As always, good writing and May God Bless You!

As we give THANKS!

Well, today is Thanksgiving. It’s a day to remember all that we’re thankful for. Even if you are not American you can be thankful for something. Let’s breakdown the word Thanksgiving. First you have Thanks, which is what most people do on Thanksgiving, unfortunately that is the only day some people are thankful. The second part is giving. So today give thanks and be giving in nature. Help those that are less fortunate or those that just need a hug or kind word.

I always try to watch the Macy’s parade in bits and pieces. I sneak peaks in between cooking. I made my cream pumpkin pies last night. Today I am responsible for peas, broccoli casserole, and deviled eggs to take to my mother in laws fora traditional Thanksgiving feast and my mom is having homemade brunswich stew and barbeque (Yum), so all I had to do for this is pie, buns, and chips. I miss my Dad dearly. This is our 6th Thanksgiving without him.

As I cook the dishes I will take to lunch with my in laws and dinner with my mom I am thankful to have the food to cook. So many today are hungry and cold. As we sit down to eat way too much food be thankful for the bounty before you. Look around the table and thank each one for something. Even that weird family member that annoys you, thank them for something.

So to all my wonderful cyber friends, thanks for the many posts, likes and comments. It has been such a wild and fun ride. I look forward to many more posts.

As always, good writing and May God bless and keep you…

Monday Night and all is well with the World!

Well, the 4th novel is being shined and polished. I feel really good about this one.

Hope to have it published this week. It has been a good Monday. I even found time

to make homemade vegetable soup. That’s right, homemade. My husband and teenage son

were impressed.

Hope all of you have a wonderful Monday night! Don’t worry, the weekend is only four days away, that is after midnight tonight!
