We Are All Well, However . . .

I will not be able to get much computer time the next two weeks. Stuff related to Hubby's job came up, and we are going to be extremely busy and having to make some big decisions. In a couple weeks I should be able to check back. Appreciate prayers! Love you guys!!

Oh, and . . . Happy Valentine's Day!!

Saturday Stirrings

What do you get when you combine "cheese" with "crackers?" Chackers! Greg has invented a new snack, and I have to admit it's pretty tasty!

Spotted Turkey Chackers
4 saltine crackers; unsalted if sensitive to salt
1 slice of cheese; cheddar is good, but Colby Jack melts better
garlic pepper seasoning
1 thin slice of turkey or ham lunchmeat

Arrange the four crackers on a small plate side by side to form a square. Place a slice of cheese on top, and sprinkle generously with garlic pepper. Add meat, if desired. Microwave 20 seconds. Remove plate; let stand one minute. Enjoy!

Name notes: If there isn’t any meat, call them Spotted Chackers. If there isn’t any seasoning, simply call them Chackers.

Are your mornings a bit scrambled? You might like Carol's husband's eggs. Seems the men 'round here are getting inspired. Or maybe their wives haven't been feeding them too well lately?

Happy Birthday, Bloggy!!

Exactly one year ago today I entered this expansive and diverse world with my first entry, and . . . WHAT A RIDE!!! It's been rewarding, time-consuming, fun, frustrating, and totally worth it (or so I like to think). I have met AMAZING PEOPLE who blew me away with their knowledge and talent. I have gleaned tons of useful information and found fellowship with Christians I will never meet this side of heaven.

I've laughed and cried, won a couple of giveaways, stayed up all hours of the night, got to see Hubby start his own blog, and in all that time I didn't get a single rude comment that I can remember (other than a little spam), for which I am truly grateful!

I'm looking forward to doing it all again!

Now without further ado, let's celebrate with a giveaway! I did one when my blog was one month old and still remember the winner: Pam! How about it, Pam? Ready to give it another go?

The package will be specially tailored to the winner, so I can't disclose contents. I can only assure everyone that I will make it worth your time if the random number generator picks you! Simply leave a comment in the next week telling me whether you like chocolate. That doesn't guarantee there will be any, but it gives me a worthy place to start!

International folks welcome! We are accustomed to the shock of shipping costs exceeding the worth of what’s inside, as we have family in Europe to whom we occasionally mail things.

Hubby is forbidden to enter. Sorry, Hubby!

Happy One Year Birthday, Bloggy!
