Edited to add***** Yes, the red thangy holding the photos is an old chip clip holder, I actually found at a garage sale in a pot with ivy growing on it!! I asked so nicely.. "What would you sell that pot of ivy for?" She said "OH, HoW ABOUT 2 BUCKS!" It was very rusty, of course you know I had to paint it RED!! Hugs!! Valarie ********
Happy Sunday all... Sharing my Christmas gathering from last night! The menu last night was fajitas -chicken or beef, black bean salsa, cheese dip, BBQ poppers, Pico de Gallo and Guacamole! and plenty of beer to go around at least 3 times and 2 bottles of red wine. A good time had here at the blue cottage!! I have to give credit here for the recipes.. here...
I made BBQ jalepeno poppers, Please note- I made the recipe straight from her cookbook not her website, there is a difference. In the book it stated to bake for one hour- didn't tell you what temperature so I baked them at 375. PLEASE LISTEN TO ME!! DO NOT WEAR LATEX GLOVES, WEAR RUBBER GLOVES.. Working with jalepenos makes your hands cry out loud!! I also advise one day in advance for prep- a bit time consuming!
And then in the midst of all my busy - LOML comes home from an "errand" he had to run and brought me this adorable rooster clock!! AND he hung it ! Thanks LOML for living the dream with me!!
And then here are a few photos I snapped of the house last night! Hugs to all of you.. Valarie
