Hot ham and cheese

PLEASE make this. I'm SERIOUS. These were OTT(over the top)!

6 large hamburger buns
1 lb sliced ham--any kind will do
1lb swiss or provolone cheese sliced.
(Feel free to adjust amounts of ham and cheese to your preference).

Make sandwiches. Place in greased 9x13. (I had to half one of the sandwiches to fit). Melt 3/4 stick of butter in small pan. Add 6-7 dashes of Worcestshire, 2 T. brown sugar, sprinkle of onion powder. Mix well. Bring to low boil. Remove from stove and pour mixture evenly over sandwiches. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. FABULOUS and so so easy! (The sauce makes the sandwich!)

Yes, It's true. Someone cool has read my blog, not that YOU are not cool. You are loyal. You are stable. You know me and still love me, but really you must check this girl's blog out. She is WAY too cool.
YOU MUST check her out. And, after that link on over here and make these. They were a PAIN to make but YUMMO. We served with sour cream!

So I am sitting here, past 10p, I need to be in bed. I want to post. I want to post so I remember the day. Lately, I've been showering all 3 together. It was hilarious tonight. Kate sitting on the shower bench, Brooks knealing in the floor and Mo going crazy. They love it. We just laughed. I only wished I had a camera and a dry shirt at this point.

I hope you eat a half price Happy Meal tommorrow. I hope you hug your babies. I hope you read the word. I hope the roses smell especially sweet. I hope you kick butt tommorrow no matter what you do!

On to food--We have discovered Nutella and the kids love it. I also have been mixing up their lunches a bit and that is fun! It doesn't have to be a sandwich every day! Also I hope you have been eating and buying Clementines/Cuties. They are so easy to peel and kids love them.

Enjoy the pics--an update--variety of recents! Willie and I are friends now b.t.w. Awesome concert. . . I touched him you know. I still haven't washed that finger. . .

YUMMY-cheesecake pie

I wanted something quick, easy and yummy.

Cheesecake pie

1 shortbread or graham cracker crust
1 8oz block of cream cheese softened--I used 1/3 less fat
1 small container whipped topping--I used sugar free cool whip
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 T. sour cream
1/3 cup sugar
Mix cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and sour cream until combined. Fold in whipped topping. Pour mixture into pie shell and refridgerate for 3 hours. Serve with fruit, chocolate or caramel sauce. (I ate mine with caramel.) YUMMY!

It's time to post

Since I can't remember my blogger sign in, I know it is time to post. Whew---what a Holiday. So nice, so fun, so stressful at times. The kids were great, and we are off to a new year, new challenges and new beginnings. The kids--older two--are playing Upward, so we are at the gym this winter---seemingly lots with two of them playing. They LOVE Iexcel.com and Iphone games---which I discourage (the iphone games anyway). Iexcel is awesome! Satch continues to conquer and destroy--my house. And I continue to be blessed----beyond measure. That's right----you read it and I meant it.

Airl continues his 2nd job as fill in preacher. (Check out Riversidechurch.com. and you can listen. Email me for the password.) Oh and yes, I have been in the kitchen, and taking pictures--but not both at the same time.

So, I'm waiting for my iphone to update so I can show you some pics! Who knew you were supposed to hook up periodically for updates? Where is my brain? On to the kitchen, oh yes, I've been cooking. How does fajita soup, roasted pork, Spaghetti and meatballs, Mexican chicken, Baby Back Ribs, homemade choc. chippers, and broc. cheese casserole sound to ya? Huh, huh, ?? Can I get an AMEN!
Check out www.kendallandkeith.blogspot for the chocolate chip cookie recipe--delicious!
Fajita soup--make basic taco soup recipe only use a packet of Fajita seasoning plus 2T. of chilli powder, few dashes of cumin. It REALLY livens up the soup. It gives it a fresh lime flavor.
Baby Backs--Buy them on sale only!! Remove tough outer layer located on the back of the ribs. Sprinkle generously with desired Cajun seasoning or whatever favorite seasoning rub you have on hand. Rub the seasoning into the meat. Bake at 400 degrees in the oven for for 60ish minutes. (I was cooking 1 rack, split into two. I used a 9x13 lined with foil.). Remove from oven. Pour on your favorite BBQ sauce. Back to oven for another 15 minutes. Delicious--just look at the picture of MO!
Meatballs--Don't let meatballs intimidate you. 1 1/2lb. ground beef. 1/2 cup grated parmesan, 1/2cup Italian Bread Crumbs, 1 egg, red pepper flakes if desired. Mix together. Shape into balls of desired size. Bake on wire rack at 350 for 30min-1hr depending on size of balls. Throw into your favorite red sauce and enjoy over pasta.

enjoy the pics. Cheek out for now.
