Sweet Awards

My sweet, sweet, friend Sharon from Keeper Of The Home has given these awards to me. I have been meaning to post this sooner and I hope she will forgive me. The following is what the awards are about:

For those who answer blog comments, emails and make their visitors feel at home on their blog. For the people who take other people's feelings into consideration before speaking out, and who are kind and courteous. Also for all those bloggers who spend so much of their time helping other bloggers design, improve and fix their sites. This award is for those generous bloggers who think of others.

Since I have taken so long to get this post up I feel undeserving.*smile* Anyway, this is what Sharon had to say about me:

Debbie at My Spot of Blog ~ Debbie is another sweet person that makes you feel welcome and also makes you feel as if you've known her forever. She sounds like a busy gal, but always catches up with you.

I feel the same about her. I enjoy *meeting* sincere sisters in the Lord.

I am suppose to give the award to 5 more bloggers, but I believe that all of you already have these. *smile*

I am grateful for the blessing. Thank-you, again, Sharon.

Calling All Thinkers

I plan to leave this post at the top so I can get as many ideas as possible. You may scroll down for my latest post. Thanks!

Ladies, I need some help. Seems I have been appointed to schedule activities for church functions. Now of course I have some ideas, but they are limited. Since all of you are from various churches and backgrounds, I thought you would be my best source for variety. I realize we don't have the same forms of entertainment available, but if you could give just a general idea of something you have participated in at your church it would be greatly appreciated. It may have been a theme Sunday or a fun function you had on a Saturday evening. Maybe it was a church trip for a day or even a weekend. I am open for all of your suggestions whether it be for Ladies only (you know I will be slipping a tea party in here with half a chance) *grin* children, or for everyone. So give me plenty of ideas, no matter how small or how large! Thanks for all your help!

Sharon's And Judy's Peaches And Cream Dessert

I decided to make this dessert today. I got the recipe from Lady Of Value. I had thought about trying it for a few days, but just didn't get around to it. We were to have company over for dinner Saturday night and I wanted to try it then, but time would not allow. So anyway, I pulled out the ingredients. I had most of them on hand, but the vanilla instant pudding. I had my DD stop by the local grocery store on her way home and get a box of that.

These are the peaches I used.

Notice what the lid says. I decided to try them and see!

Here I have a "gathering" on some of the ingredients to get started.

I am now mixing the crust.

She said it would be "gooey" and she was right. It wasn't too bad, though.

I spread the dough into my glass baking dish.

I put the peaches on top. Let me tell you, they were delicious!

I mixed together the cream cheese, sugar, and reserved peach juice and poured over the peaches. I think I should have mixed the cream cheese just a little more.

Next, I sprinkled the cinnamon and sugar over the top.

I then placed it in the preheated oven to bake. Yes, I know the oven could stand a cleaning, but it's SUMMER!

Here is the finished product.


There is no way I am going to lose any weight trying out all of these recipes! I have my eye on a few more that I want to try. These aren't the only ones I've tried, but they are the only ones I have taken pictures of. I had thought about having a specific day that I tested recipes from your blogs and post pics from each one, but then I decided Nah....that would make me HAVE to do it therefore taking the fun out of it. I prefer to do it random and spontaneously.

I prefer to bake in the winter as the oven heats the house up so, but since I was broiling our main dish tonight I decided a few more minutes wouldn't hurt anything.
We had broiled Talapia with creole seasoning. We also had flat beans and cornbread. Now is that southern, or what? Oh, and I made mashed potatoes for the boys. This was not my original plan for supper. For some reason I have been craving homemade mac and cheese. I realized I didn't have everything I needed to make that so.....Fish it was. Praise God for the fish!
