While going through things to sell at our garage sale last weekend, I came upon this old book that I bought at a garage sale or flea market or somewhere or other years ago.  I've always loved looking at old pictures and reading old letters.  These kind of things have always fascinated me.

A recipe, a poem, or maybe tis a picture, Twill be thine own Even tho it is a mixture.

This clippings books is full of clippings.  I love it.  I just scanned through it the other day and thought I'd share with you one of the clippings that touched my heart.  Here it is:

Y'all have a great weekend!!

Display Kid's Artwork

I saw this idea on Pinterest over a year ago.  And since at that time we were redoing our dining room/entry/hallway/whateverthatroomiscalled room, I thought this would look super cute. 

You just take a 1 by something or other and cut it to whatever size you want.  My husband routered the edges and then painted them black.  I took some sandpaper and roughed up the edges a bit to give them some character.  Find you some of those little metal clips.  We could only find some that had magnets in them.  My husband had to drill them out so we could screw them to the board.  Then he just screwed the boards to the wall.

We ordered the word Masterpieces from a vinyl lettering company - I wish I could remember where I ordered it from, but since it's been almost a year, I've forgotten.

I think it turned out great.  My kids are so proud to see their masterpieces hanging on the wall.

Pinterest Palooza - John Wayne Casserole

Saw this on Pinterest - John Wayne Casserole.  The recipe comes from The Kitchen Life of a Navy Wife.  It's been pinned, like, 55,000 times - literally.  So I thought I'd try it out.

It turned out pretty dang good!  I halved the recipe and I think next time I make it, I'll use less jalapenos.

Had to get a few bowls and pans dirty, but I think it was worth it.

Good Morning, Sunshine Sandwich

Back when I was in high school, many, many moons ago, a friend of mine's father would make these.  They are so yummy.  How can you go wrong with fried bologna?

You can cut a slit into the bologna to make them look like little Pacmans or you can cut them in half.

Fry eggs and then slice yoke with knife so it will spread.

Good Morning, Sunshine Sandwich

Bologna (I use all beef)
Sliced American Cheese
Salt & Pepper

Cut or slice the bologna.  (For my husband's sandwich, I always use two slices of the thin bologna for each sandwich.)  Fry in saute pan.  Take cooked bologna out and place on paper towels.  Crack eggs into saute pan and fry.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Slice yoke with knife to break open yoke so it will spread out.

In the meantime, toast some bread.  After bread is toasted, spread on the mayo.  Now you can build your sandwich.  Toast, mayo, fried bologna, fried egg and cheese or any order that makes you feel special.

Recipe To Try

Y'all must try this recipe now.  Go out and buy the ingredients now, get it marinating, and cook it out on the grill tomorrow. 

It's Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide Carne Asada and it is DELICIOUS!

It goes great with my Quick & Easy Refried Beans.

It looks amazing, doesn't it?  Well, it tastes even better than it looks.
