Hi everyone. Sorry I have M.I.A. for a couple days. It's been one crazy week so far and not in a good way. My mind is just about exhausted, but onward I go.
There is so much to get done in the next few weeks. I have my first Christmas get-together on the 13th, then more after that. So life will be busy, busy, busy.
Here are a couple yummy recipes you might like to try.
KITTY LITTER CANDY
2 c sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
6 Tbsp. butter
1/2 C peanut butter
2 C old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Combine sugar and cocoa powder in a saucepan. Stir in milk and butter and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes and remove from heat.
Stir in peanut butter, oats and vanilla.
Lay out waxed paper. Drop teaspoons of the mixture onto it and let it cool. Makes 3 dozen candies.
Pretty darn easy!
CHRISTMAS BREAKFAST OR BRUNCH
20 oz. bag of frozen hash browns - thawed
4 C shredded cheese
2 c cooked dice ham
1 C milk
Place potatoes in a greased 13 x 9 pan. Sprinkle the cheese over the top of potatoes. Beat milk and eggs and seasonings together and pour over other ingredients. Bake covered for 1 hour. Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes.
This will serve a lot of people. I would suggest to serve with muffins or biscuits. Mmmm - biscuits/gravy would be good with this as well.
What a fun and easy morning (or any time) meal.
Have a good day. Talk with you all later.
