Nibblings for the Neighbors

The Messy Chefettes strike again!! PBC and Flibbertigibbet are let loose in the kitchen to dip bugles
And chocolate mint truffles
Dipping chocolate by Bakers: SO much easier than the ole fashion way ~ with chocolate chips, powered sugar, milk, and a double boiler that would get so hot and burn when left accidentally unattended…
Look how cute they turn out
Neighbor Nibblings Galore!

Preparation ~
Truffles: 1 8 oz cream cheese 1 package of mint oreos ~ blend in a mix master Add together and set in frig for 20 minutes Take out and roll into balls. Put back into frig for 20 minutes Warm up your dipping chocolate We use tooth picks to stick in the truffle and dip. Sit in frig uncovered till ready to serve
Bugals and Strawberries: Take ‘em outta the bag and dip em!
Warning: bath may be needed due to excess warm gooey choclate spillage

Homemade Turkey Soup

Glad to see that you’re here; considering I was sooooooo what is the word……. graphic?
Ok so assuming it doesn’t bother you to remove the package from the turkey ~ pop that thing in the oven and bake her up…. here goes:
After turkey is cooked, pull off as much cooked meat as you can. Place turkey in large pot and simmer with water for about an hour. While bird is simmering, chop: Celery Onions Mushrooms Carrots and anything else you like to throw in there. I add fresh green beans and squash. Those lil green peas are good too. Dressing ~ leftover from your turkey is really good Two cans of tomatoes Pull out your bird and let cool. Once cooled pull off the rest of the meat. add all meat to pot with water.  Add chicken bullion, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Toss in all your chopped ingredients and let simmer 20 minutes.  add spices to adjust to your taste. Put in bow tie pasta and simmer another ten minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Voila!

Elk Vomit ~ my fanny! It’s Delicious!

Note: it’s always better the next day!!

Whirlybird Soars Thru Greensboro

It’s Saturday morning and the peeps are already getting a lil anxious about what they will be doing for the next two weeks vacation.  “Can I die my hair pink?  Asks PBC. “It will match our tree! Can I?? Can I??” ERRRRRRR…..Ummmmmm……. STALchimes in “I want to sell ALL of my games at gamestop so I hope you have the whole day open ~ the lines are so long, they wrap out the door and around the corner.”
The lines are so long…. they wrap out the door and around the corner….the whole day open.. GASP.
A lil nervous about next week being stuck at home with the peeps?  Do visions of spit balls and unruly paper airplanes slapping against your head make you want to climb up your chimney and hide?

Throw those pups in the car and go on a day trip! Here’s ours to Greensboro, GA:

I would like to live in this beautiful house, don’t you? I’d like to sip ‘Grandmother’s Old Fashions’ on this very front porch. Makes a girl want to ring a lil bell and have Clarence the house boy bring me sprinkled Milk Chocolate Bourbon Balls. And looky there…. 4 fireplaces to climb up in and hide when the peeps are driving you crazy!
Walking down the street of Greensboro, GA. cute and quaint lil shops
Getting a lil hungry? Stop in at the Yesterday Cafe. We gotta hamburger that was pretty dern tasty. This is their speciality signature desert. It was YUM.  I forgot the name of it , though. Surprise, surprise, right? It’s their fault, they just kept calling it their ‘speciality desert’ Let’s just call it Sugar Custard Explosion Good family day and that night they slept like lil worn out nutcrackers. Luckily, presently ~ PBC still has her blond hair.
