Pumpkin Carving Fun


Last weekend we did a little pumpkin carving with some little ones.

And some big ones, too!

Here is a very proud pumpkin carver.

We had a great time roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, too!!

It was a great time.
The weather was great and the company was even better.

Happy Halloween

Slow-Cooker Conversion


I don’t know about you all, but I have used my slow-cooker (crock pot) a lot lately.

 

I have found some great recipes on Pinterest.

But there are a bunch of recipes that I would like to try that are made for the oven.

 

 

Lucky for us I found this “Slow-Cooker Conversion Chart” in an old issue of Paula Dean Magazine.

 

Recipes for large cuts of meat, casseroles, soups, and stews are all terrific for slow cooking.

The main thing is to reduce the liquid to about 1/2 cup unless the recipe contains rice, beans, or pasta.

To figure the cooking time, use this guideline: 

 

~15 to 30 minutes conventional cooking time = 4 to 6 hours on LOW or 1 1/2  to 2 1/2 hours on HIGH.

 

~35 to 45 minutes conventional cooking time – 6 to 8 hours on LOW or 3 to 4 hours on HIGH.

 

Cook combinations of  raw meat and vegetables for at least 6 to 8 hours on LOW to give the flavors time to blend. 

 

I hope this helps you.

I am so very happy to have found this!

It’s Gettin’ Spooky


I was just driving by looking at the tress when I came upon this.

An abandon cemetery, looking very spooky to me.

It’s that time of year!

We are doing our annual pumpkin carving this weekend, pictures to come.

We Have a Cheerleader on Our Hands


Every year the football cheerleaders have a mini cheer camp at school for all the elementary students.

This year my granddaughter, Kennedy is in kindergarten.

She got to be a mini cheerleader for the half- time performance. 

Here she is getting ready and getting all lined up to take the field. 

They all did a great job.

The future cheerleading squad of Gallatin High is looking good.
