What do you do with all the leftover dressing/stuffing you have from the feast you cooked yesterday? Make stuffing bites, of course! You don't even had to wait for leftovers..just mix a box or bag of stuffing according to directions, add whatever you want to it, form into a shape, pan fry or bake. There you go..simple and perfect! Great for watching the game, as appetizers for your guest, or just popping in your mouth while wrapping presents! Enjoy!
Form leftover dressing/stuffing into shapes. Spray skillet with non stick spray. Brown bites on all sides. Serve with Strawberry Cranberry Sauce or cranberry sauce. Enjoy!
We had a Beautiful and Blessed Christmas this year. We shared the meaning of Christmas, as well as Santa. The boys had an abundance of wealth...toys as well as meaning.
The boys youngest sister, which is older than they are...and me for that matter, ~smile~ , spent the afternoon with us on Saturday! It was so much fun for them, and us!!!! Opening their presents and playing with them was all they could have ever hoped for.
Christmas morn was especially good for the boys, which I am thankful for. (I was awake for almost two days and very tired) We are Blessed to be able to share with them about the day, and also gifts thrown in from us that Santa overlooked getting.
The afternoon was filled with fun from the boy's oldest sister and brother in law...yep, my boys have 50+ year old sister(s) and 59 year old Son-IL. ~smiles~ What a fun time for all!
Continued fun today, when they were able to spend gift cards they received from their Aunt Di Di. My sister that will not speak to me but will send gift cards to my boys. The boys bought great gifts with them and are still playing with them. I am thinking gift cards next year, with shopping December 26, is the way to go!!!!!
We have shared with our boys the gift of giving to those that may not have a great Holiday. That may not have presents. That may not have a supper, or food whenever hungry, to eat.
We had a Beautiful Christmas and hope you did also. It's all about Love, Family, Sharing and Giving from the Heart and not the Wallet. Showing the Love that Blossoms from deep within and grows as it is shared in the smallest of ways, to become a Bouquet of Beauty!
Blessing's to You All! Friends are a Blessing and you are Ours!
(I know I have imperfections when posting..that's just me and the way it is. I'm normally interrupted ten thousand times by little boys and I Sooo Love It!!!!!)
This is really fun to do with your children. The boys and I really had a Great time! From rolling and cutting to turning and decorating! Enlist the help of your little elves and have a fun afternoon together!
1 cup applesauce
1 cup ground cinnamon...I bought mine at Walmart for 50 cents. Buy a couple jars
1/4 cup glue...optional, I just spread a little glue on the back instead
Mix applesauce, cinnamon and glue (if using) together. I made mine the night before and put in the refrigerator.
When ready to roll, sprinkle a little cinnamon on the counter/workplace and rolling pin then roll to 1/4". You don't want it too thin. Reid had a great time rolling out the dough! ~smiles~
Cut out in desired shapes and put on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Place in a 200 degree oven, turning every 15 minutes, until dry or almost dry and let them finish drying on the counter. You can also leave them out for a couple of days instead of drying them in the oven, turning every few hours or so, until dry.
Give your little elves paint, glue, glitter or glitter glue to decorate.
Here is another cute craft to make with/for your children. It is a little hard for the young ones. I've made this one for years also. Please forgive the fuzzy pictures...I guess I needed more coffee! <3 and hugs!
