In the name of being a good Mother In Law, I could NOT miss another Tasty Tuesday.
If you saw my last post you know I did me some cooking over the weekend. My culinary delights ranged from fresh salsa to sweet tea.
I know, Cookbook Publishers get in line!!
Anyway, I have been following this blog faithfully (not because my son created it but because it is AWESOME!) I have also checked out most all of ForeverWherever’s blog friends.
Some of your blogs cause me to sit at my laptop for HOURS!!!! The Home decorating, the cooking, the crafts, the colors!! You are all amazing.
That said, I wanted to “WOW” the Crowds today with my latest (self created I might add) secret family recipe.
Homemade Half and Half!! (Hey, when a girl runs out of Half and Half, a girl needs a plan!!!)
That is exactly what happened to me recently. My honey has the morning coffee hot and ready for me when I wake up each morning. Somehow, Someway, on this dreadful day, we discovered that we had NO HALF and HALF!! Normally, I would just stop everything and trot, up to Starbucks for my “White Chocolate Mocha” but this morning was to be filled with writing deadlines and I knew if I got out of my pajamas I would not be able to THINK!!!
Emergency measures were called for.
THINK PAT, JUST THINK!!!!
Then, it came to me….
Out of Nowhere…..
You have CREAM!!!
You have MILK!!!!
How about if we MIX them together, You know, about HALF and HALF of each.
The BRILLIANCE, the CREATIVITY, the JAVA JUICES of the day had begun! I literally jumped up and down in my kitchen!
I knew that I was about to experience a WRITING BONANZA!!!
I feel that the only good Christan Girl thing for me to do is share my glorious discoveries with you. After all, that is my mission statement:
EQUIPPING WOMEN with EVERYDAY TRUTHS for ETERNAL LIFE!!
(I know that my Tim is reading this, I do allow an occasional “Renaissance Man” to come along for the experience!)
So, here you go Tasty Tuesday Bloggers….Read it and Weep!!!
Find a can of REALLY GOOD EVAPORATED MILK. Pour about 1/2 into a cream holding thing.
Fill the thing that you found, the rest of the way up with Milk!
ps….Darling Kim, Can I get a Cupcake to eat with my coffee??
(or, actually, I would rather have the CupCake EATER in the photo!!!)
Now that’s a freedom statement! It seems like the moment I turned the corner towards 50 I began to experience the physical process of aging. Aches and pains that appeared out of nowhere. The need for different kinds of eye glasses for everything I do. The 10 pounds that suddenly…
I am on vacation, resting, playing and enjoying some time in the beautiful “Smokey Mountains” but my heart is heavy and my prayers will not cease for my friends, who are many, who live in the BEAUTIFUL Colorado Springs SMOKE FILLED MOUNTAINS. They are not on vacation; they are not…
I am about 1 hour from lighting about 50 candles, slipping some appetizers into the oven and opening my front door to the wonderful staff of A Woman’s Place/Life Impact Network. My home is ready to receive her guests and so am I. We have TONS of good food, fresh…
Last night I went to bed thinking about Turkeys and woke up thinking about Roosters! Sometimes, when I hear myself say some things that I say, I cannot believe I said them. Or worse, I believe it, I just wish that I hadn’t. Last night, during the night, a rooster crowed in…
I have spent the past few weeks pressing into God, crying out to God, laughing with God, complaining to God, begging God and praising God as I have been partnering with Him to give birth to a dream. My dream. His dream. Giving birth is not easy. Precious but not…
I am a woman. I was raised in the deep south with 3 younger sisters. The SOUTH has a few “special” expectations for women darlin’! I’m just sayin’! I started a woman’s ministry called A WOMAN’S PLACE over 25 years ago. Oh my! I know a little bit about WOMEN…
