This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Snack time...........

My friend Edna made these for me at Christmas. I looked up the recipe on google. They are awesome.
I always make a double batch so when you have tried them you probably will too.

Here's what you need:
1/4 cup Canola Oil
1 Packet of Ranch Dressing Mix (dry)
1 Teaspoon Dried Dill Weed
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
Bag or Box of Oyster Crackers

Heat oven to 250 degrees.

Mix the first five ingredients in a large bowl. Then add the Oyster Crackers and stir to coat well.
Cook on a baking sheet and they say to turn them over every five minutes. Cook for 15 mins until toasty. Remove and let cool before storing in an air tight container.
I just use them to snack on but they are awesome with soup. Tomato and Clam Chowder.

Another very easy snack that Tristen just loved..........I tried it on the kids first.

String cheese chopped into bite size pieces, dipped in milk and bread crumbs, baked at 425 for 8-10 minutes- serve with marinara sauce! I used some flavoured bread crumbs and that made it more yummy. I also added an egg to the milk to make the crumbs stick better.
By the way, when I first made these I had some left over chicken from a rotisserie chicken. I cut that up into bite size pieces and dipped that in the breadcrumbs too. The kids thought it was the best lunch ever.
