Cheesy Dilly Grean Beans with Bacon

Pin It

How could you possibly go wrong with cheese, dill weed, green beans and bacon? Is that even possible? I don't think so.

Per requests, I make this every year for Thanksgiving.

6 14.5 ounce cans green beans, drained
1 lb. Velveeta, cubed
1 tsp. dill weed
1 lb. (or less) bacon cooked and crumbled (I bake mine in the oven)
salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything in a casserole dish and bake at 350 until cheese is melted. I take it out and stir it after it's baked a little while. You could easily halve this recipe - in fact, the recipe above is doubled.

Happy Thanksgiving, Everybody!!

Burlap Wreath

I got the basic idea of how to do this off of guess what? Pinterest of course! I took a wire hanger, opened it up. Got two different colors of burlap that I've had for probably close to 15 years and started cutting that into strips. That stuff is messy and leaves little strands everywhere so be ready for that before you start cutting. I'd say that I had about a yard of each color of burlap - so about two yards of burlap total.

I cut strips that were about 3 inches wide (more or less) and about 12 inches long or maybe a little longer. It really doesn't matter.

Take a strip of the burlap and start kind of threading it by placing the wire hanger through it.

It's almost like you were skewering meat to put on the grill.

I poked the clothes hanger through about every inch and a half or so.

Alternate the colors of burlap if you like.

Squish it all together then twist the coat hanger closed.

Then tie a pretty bow. I think my mother bought the ribbon I used from a flea market in Mena, Arkansas - beautiful place that Mena, Arkansas - Mena will always have a special place in my heart.

Hang that gorgeous wreath on your front door and call it good!!

Make A Turkey With Your Turkeys

I've done this craft every year since my oldest was 3, so that's a whole three whopping years! First you pick out fall colors out of your construction paper - like reds, yellows, oranges, greens, browns - whatever you want. Or you could be really creative and pick pinks or purples or whatever the heck you want - after all, it is your turkey!

Get your little munchkin to stand on a piece of construction paper with their feet spread apart and using a pencil outline their little feet.

Next, cut out what you traced and then glue the two pieces together. This will make the turkey's body.

Next trace your kid's hands on the rest of the construction paper. I do a set of hands per color.

Cut them out. Or if you're really smart, get your child to cut them out, that way their hands cramp, not yours. I'm only joking! My oldest daughter wanted to cut hers out, promise.

Next glue the hands onto the back of the turkey. These will be the turkey's feathers.

Cut out a little orange triangle for the nose and a red piece for the little goobly gobbler (that's the technical term for the flappy skin on the turkey's neck) and then cut out two orange pieces for their feet and then glue those on - draw on some eyes and you've got a handmade turkey made by your very own turkeys.

Be sure to write on the back what year your child make the turkey. I pull out the turkeys from years past just to marvel at how much my children have grown. It's amazing.

DIY Ghost Shirt - They're Boo-tiful

I thought I'd post this even though Halloween is over. These are super cute and so easy to make. I made one for my 6-year-old and one for my 2-year-old. I saw these on, of all places, Pinterest. Can you believe it? LOL.

The idea came from Sugar Bee Crafts. She made a pillowcase dress. I modified her idea a little by using a t-shirt that I bought at Hobby Lobby when they were on sale. I used the craft black felt that you buy in squares from Walmart, and I bought a half a yard of material from Joann's. I would have bought that super cute zebra print fabric but they were out! So I got this material that I think is just as cute.

I made a ruffle for my oldest daughter's ghost shirt, which she loved. I did the ruffle one first and it was a little difficult for me, so when it came time for me to make my youngest daughter's shirt, I made hers with just a plain band around the bottom. I actually think the plain band is a little cuter.

Whatcha think?
