This and That



HELLO from snowy eastern Kansas
aka The Kansas City metro area.
We are now in day 3 of the snow
and cold. Tomorow I will be back
at school but not the kids--it's
conference day. Our kids have not
been at school since Monday. Next
Monday ought to be fun!!!




Since it has been cold we have been
eating"warm foods." Last night I made
Hashbrown Casserole. It is similar to
"Mr. Dell's Hasbrown Casserole" except
I added ground beef and muchroom soup.
It is usually a side dish and I wanted more
of a main dish. If you want my recipe
version let me know or you can Google
the original recipe.




Last Sunday was "the big game"
and as you know we had friends
over. Above we had nibbles set
out in the living room. Top right
corner: Peanuts, bottom right:
M & M's (a tradition), left bottom:
dry roasted peanuts, and top left:
Poppycock. Outside of the tray
we have copper covered chocolate
footballs.




I also made Trisha Yearwood's
Sausage Cheese Balls for more
nibbles. I will admit they are not
as easy as she made them look.
If I make these again, I will
start on them earlier. They are
as good as she said they were
though!




For "the main event" we had
a potato bar. I set up my new
3 crock warming station with
Rotel cheese, ground beef mix-
ture and ham chunks. This gave
each of a choice of toppings
for our potato.




This would be my creation:
a mexican potato. Ground
beef, cheese sauce, lettuce
and salsa. I think we had a
hit!




For the 4th year in a row! The
Winner AGAIN! Nancy's predicted 
score was the closest to the final
game score.
I am presenting her with the Super
Bowl Medal.



She will have this till next year's
game and hopefully SOMEONE
else will win the medal!
Background info: Nancy does not
follow football like her husband, Mr
Ken and myself. I personally think
she does follow it but is not letting
on how much she really knows!  :)
