At work the other day I came across a simple recipe for something called Georgia Crackers from a country artist. (Little Big Town's- Kimberly) They sounded delish and I knew I wanted to make them. I had everything here at home to make them so I made them last night.
I told Nate to put the rest of the pepperoni on top cuz I like a lot of it. :)
How cute? And it's so simple to make. We stuck it in the oven. The package says 8 to 10 min until cheese is perfectly melted. I think I left it in the oven for about 15 min since we went heavy on the cheese. haha

Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself, at Goldblatt's Department Store. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out." All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's father winning a lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking; Ralphie's fantasy scenarios and more.
Kristen, Dave, Joe, Sharon and I all went to the play together. It was great. Lots of laughs and lots of fun. :) I can't wait to go to another one. :)
Nate's mom was so sweet and made another cake for Kristen and Dave. Their birthdays are December 6th and December 8th. It was great too b/c Kristen's mom, Milbrey was in town so she was able to come help celebrate. :)

This one of the Old Country Church was my favorite. I voted 'fan favorite' for this one. :)
This one had to of taken many hours. There was a pumpkin patch, and gardens with corn, lettce and carrots. Very detailed!

My Mother-in-law and her friend, Susan made Baklava last week. I'd never had it before. I figured I'd either love it or hate it. I decided to try a piece and make it my feature today. I didn't really like it. :( I looked up the recipe since I have no idea what's in it or how to make it. It calls for honey which I'm not a huge fan of so maybe that's why I don't like it much. At least I tried it. :)

Some string cheeses are waxy but these are not. It's very good Mozzarella string cheese and it's the perfect little grab on the go snack. :)
