Ice-Cream, Smice-Cream, we all scream for crafts!

Tearing your hair out wishing that the kiddos would go back to school already? (You're not alone.) Here's a fun-filled, healthy craft idea that was published in our local paper. Kiddo had an absolute blast making and immediately devouring these little gems. He made around 35 and is planning to give the 5 that are left (he had a tummy-ache) away to his friends.
Enjoy the project and the sugar rush that accompanies it!

Creative Endeavors

I know, I know- you're wondering "Where's the holiday roast?" But this year I decided (after some convincing by kiddo) that it would be 'way cool' to do something different. So... without further ado... I unveil the one, the only, Burger Roast! I used 27 pure beef burgers and 3 boxes of Velveeta and oooh, yah... My mouth is watering.
The guests (well, really just my sister) will be so psyched to see it! (She is a burger fiend!) I am a little concerned, however, that it won't feed all 4 of us... But we have plenty of twice-baked potatoes (made with blue cheese this year), rolls, and the obligatory green vegetable (as if anyone even touches that.). I think we'll be satiated.

Long Hiatus Over?

Oh, it's that time of year again... time for rejoicing and family and overdosing on SUGAR! "It's the most wonderful time of the year..." Kiddo helped with these holiday treats... from upper left and clockwise; Toffee Ice-Cream Bars, Sugar-dough Tarts with milk chocolate icing (my addition), Thumbprints (again w/ chocolate- I find jam just isn't sweet enough), Chocolate Death Ice-Cream Bars (to die for- literally), and Peppermint Mouthfuls-o-Butterfat! Kiddo and I, of course, tasted as we made and I must say I'm feeling a little Ug. But what's a little illness in exchange for such fabulous holiday memories?

By the way, I used nothing but the best and purest ingredients for these puppies- butter from that happy cow farm, real ice-cream, etc. The Weston-Price Foundation says that's the only way to go. None of that oil filled margarine or soy crap- Did you know they now think that soy causes homosexuality?!?! Look it up, but probably not in a book... look it up in your gut. Makes sense there, I'd say. :)

Glad to be back... more to come.
