Happy April 15th!!!

Happy Tax Day, everybody!!!! Whew, this has been a busy week already! Of course, Monday was "music Monday", so that's always a treat:seems as though more and more of our friends are picking up instruments they never knew they had the talents to play {which is awesome}. It's just great to see them "evolve" from shaking eggs or playing wooden frogs to actually playing guitars & mandolins. So there you go! You never know what you can accomplish, or what hidden talents you possess, unless you try something new. You'll amaze yourself, I promise!!Yesterday was Sandi's birthday {party} and I made her this awesome necklace, with matching earrings ~ she loved it!!!! It's really beautiful. I bought several of the "Ammonite Fossils" on my last bead buying extravaganza, so I can make another one of these. You know where to find it, if you are interested. But today is Sandi's actual "Birthday", so I'll be fixing dinner this evening, which will include my awesome "Brocolli Cornbread" ~ here's the recipe for those that are interested ~ it's the best stuff in the whole flippin world!
4 Eggs
1 Stick of butter - melted
8 oz. of Pepper Jack Velveeta - melted
1 Cup of Chopped Onion
1 12 oz. Can of Mexicorn - drained
1 Box of Frozen Chopped Broccoli - thawed & squeezed dry
6 oz. of Cottage Cheese
1 Box of Jiffy Cornbread Mix
I always melt the Velveeta cheese in a double boiler on med/low heat. Then mix all ingredients together really good in a large bowl & pour into an ungreased 9x12 baking dish. Bake @ 400 for 30/45 minutes ~ just check with a knife or toothpick in the middle to make sure it's not still runny. It will be very moist, though. And then eat it all and enjoy it ~ believe me, this will start a tradition!

And after we eat & do some "Wii Bowling", it's off to the "Duckpond" for the 1st "Duckpond @ Dusk" of the year!! But before I go and start cleaning house, I have to announce the winner of those awesome earrings from last post ~ it's lucky #4, which is Anita! Yay!!!! Congratulations, Anita! These wonderful little earrings are on their way to you ~ I hope you enjoy them.

Thanks to everybody for always reading my ramblings & commenting. I'll be back tomorrow with the "freebie" for next weeks drawing! Have a wonderful day!!
♥ & peace always ~ Kathy
