Down and Out



Just wanted to pop in
and let you know that I
am still around.

I have been sick with
everything from head
to toe. I am feeling better
each day, I went back to
school yesterday. Whatever
this CRAP is, it is slow to
leave. BUT I WILL CONQUER
IT! We have a lot of stuff
going around school too.


I'll be back soon!

A Valentine Date



Last night was our Valentine
celebration.
We went to a new restaurant
called rye K C. It is locally
owned, they are known
for their Fried Chicken and
Farm to Market concept.



Here we are at the
front entrance. The
patio was decorated
for the season. Love
it!




(Please excuse the blurriness)

This is Ken's Hangar Steak,
mixed greens and cottage
fries. He enjoyed his meal
very much.




This is THE famous Fried Chicken,
it came with ham gravy and home-
made pickles.




I also ordered a side of mac and
cheese with bacon! Yum! Yum!
We did take leftovers home.
Lunch for tomorrow.




This is Ken's (no bake) cheesecake
with a meringue "graham cracker."





This my friends, is Apple Pear
Crumble. Oh good golly!

We had an enjoyable evening
and I know we'll go back  for
Brunch or Lunch.

Ta Da !



We did it!




Over 75 Valentine cards
were made for the card
shower!




They came from New York,
Maryland and Kansas.




All of them were very festive
and colorful.




They were delivered to
the radio station that is
the primary sponsor of
the card shower.
I dropped them off
yesterday and the kids
will get them TOMORROW!!!
I am sure they will have a
great time choosing from ALL
the Valentine's that were made
by EVERYONE!!

Thanks again to Leslie and Carol
for helping out.!!!!

Friendship



Today is Send A Card To
A Friend Day!

A day to show our friends
we are thinking of them.
Everyone enjoys hearing
from their friends. Surprise
a friend--send them a card,
whether it is bought or made
or an ecard.

Valentine's Day is one week
from today, a perfect day to
send a special message to a
friend.

Speaking of cards--if you
are participating in the
card shower, the deadline
is tomorrow.
Let me know if you have any

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!  :)

Snow Day!




Good afternoon friends!
As you can see from the
pics posted, we have SNOW.
As I write we have about 3.5"
right now with more to come.

Mr Ken and I both have snow
days today. Both of us knew
this last night which is nice
so one can sorta kinda make
a plan. Most everything is
closed and we are advised to
stay home.




Woo hoo! What does one
do on an unexpected day
off?

Here are some ideas:

Sleep late!
Eat junk food
Stay in your jammies
ALL day
Watch the snow fall
Read a good book
Play games
Catch up around the
house
Blog/read blogs
Cook/bake
Make cards for the
Valentine Card
Shower

Who knows this snow
"event" might extend
 into tomorrow.
