CINNAMON ROLL CHRISTMAS TREES

Here is a fun way to bake  a container of cinnamon rolls.
My s-i-l commented that there is never enough icing, so you might
want to add some--either from a simple recipe or canned icing.

STICK ON BOW WREATH

Dig out the bags of bows bought at  90% off
from last year's after Christmas clearance sales.
Use an old wreath form, or get one at the dollar store.
This would be a great project for kids--just use a kid friendly glue,
NOT a glue gun.

CASSEROLE CROCK POT!!!!

I am the crock pot queen. 
I use mine 2 to 3 times a week. 
(Crock pot liners have changed my life.)


My daughter got a casserole crock pot last Christmas and 
encouraged me to get one. 

I was able to get one this week at Aldi!
So this was my treatz to my self this week. 

Ambiano 3.5-Quart Casserole Slow Cooker

I used it for the first time today and it is amazing!
It will cook foods that I won't have to heat the large oven for!
I can see a pan of lasagna in my future. 
It also has a lock down lid in case I want to take a dish to share!

LEGO CORD HOLDER

A loyal reader sent this neat idea for a Lego cord holder.

"Read this in the paper: Use Lego people to hold your charging cables when not in use. Their hands are the perfect size to hold cords, and you can stick the figures to a small Lego base that's secured to whatever is convenient (table edge, nightstand, a wall)."

NO BAKE BROWNIES

This is an 'oldie but goodie' recipe
from my mom--one of my favs.
It is more like a fudge than
a brownie. This is a great recipe to
make ahead of the holidays--just be sure to
keep refrigerated.
The ingredients for this recipe should be
readily available and may be on sale!


No Bake Brownies

3 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups marshmallows
12 oz choc chips
1 cup condensed  milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Melt choc chips, milk and vanilla. Reserve one cup for icing.
2. Mix crumbs, marshmallows, salt and nuts in remaining 
    choc. mixture.This will be a bit dry and may be hard to stir.
3. Spread and press cookie mixture into a non stick or buttered pan. Could use parchment paper to cover pan with enough left over  on the sides to lift out. 
4. Spread icing over mixture in pan. 

Refrigerate until time to serve.
Cut into small squares, this is very rich so 
small portions are best. 
Keep uneaten portion refrigerated.

Let's revisit Ms. Cheap!

Even though Ms. Cheap writes about local 
freebies in and around Nashville, she still has 
some great tips and tricks to save money. 
Now that the holiday season is just around the corner,
check out her ideas.

I scored a Ms. Cheap today--I'm working on a  
'secret' project for the family--I needed 1 inch binders.
Since this is a big project, I needed 
to bargain shop for the supplies. 
On a whim, I stopped at Office Max--
low and behold, the exact number of binders 
in the exact size I needed were in the clearance area--
normally $8.00 each, marked down to 74cents!!!!
I truly believe my bargain shopping angel 
aka as Mom guided me to this store, especially
since the binders were purple--one of her favorite colors.

STOCK UP!!!!


The stores are full of baking and crafting supplies 
for the upcoming Holidays. 
Many of these products are on sale and/or have coupons. 
Stock up now while these are plentiful because many products are seasonal. 

Also--don't forget to get a few cartons of shelf stable milk-
(Dollar Tree has these for a $1.00).
These are a good insurance policy when winter returns---
may save a trip to the grocery out in the snow!

HOT CHICKEN SALAD

(Hot as in temperature, not spicy)

The club hostess for November brought this to share at our FCE meeting yesterday.
This could be used as a main dish, or as an appetizer. 
Canned chicken or leftover roasted chicken from the grocery could be substituted for the cooked chicken.
