There was no power at work today so I had a "snow day" =)
I was up at 530 for work, got dressed and made PB&J to take- then got the call.
I watched the Hurricane reports, watched some shows on the DVR, made some tea and breakfast burritos, yum.
Then I went thru my Yarn and added anything new to Ravelry then picked out a few projects in my queue to work on.
Then I felt the urge to bake- and you know it's never just one cookie when I get to going...
So as I type this I am also getting my It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown & Garfield Halloween on.
It's not Halloween without 'em!
Even though Halloween was moved to Saturday in Cleveland and Sunday in other surrounding areas.
Clockwise from top right:
Nutella Cookies (24 cookies) -Lori gave me this recipe she found on Pinterest
Italian Christmas Cookies (105 cookies)
I then dipped the Italian Cookies in chocolate as usual
I texted a pic of the cookies to Arleen who said I should go out in this junky weather and bring her some. (even though I am taking some to work tomorrow lol)
And I sent her this in response:
I'm thinking not- LOL
I told her good things come tho those who wait...
NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® SWIRLED™ Semi-Sweet Chocolate & Premier White Morsel Cookies
It's Halloween time! That can only mean one thing....

This recipe came from Taste of Home, called Trick or Treat Turnovers
I first get out all of my ingredients.
I grate up carrot and onion for veg without chunks.
Fry some meat, season to taste.
I used Salt, onion and garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce.
Once the meat cooks up a bit, add the carrots, onion and I also added minced garlic.
Once there is no more pink add your cheese and mustard.
I can't say I have measurements really...
I used 2 lbs beef, 1 large carrot, 1 medium onion, maybe a tablespoon of minced garlic, sprinkled the seasoning then a handful of cheese- adjust to however you like to flavor your meat =)
You can probably even use a taco seasoning mix.
Then get some jumbo refrigerated biscuits- I used flaky this time and it was a mess
because as I rolled the dough out...the dough kept flaking off haha.
I rolled them out so they were 5-6 inches in diameter.
Spoon about 1/2 cup of meat then add the top rolled out biscuit.
I cut pumpkin faces out for mine...Oh and I attempted (and kinda failed) at cutting out our NASCAR drivers numbers....it's supposed to be an 18, 14 and 48.... The 18 and 14 aren't too bad but the 48 needs some work...heehee
Bake on a greased pan @ 350* for 20 mins
I brushed the tops with an egg wash prior to inserting in the oven.
Out of the oven:
Q said if you flipped the numbered ones on the side they looked like weird Frankenstein's LOL
MMMMM so tasty
Make some for your family this Halloween!
You can even make the meat in advance if you wanted-
just reheat when ready to fill the biscuits.

Uncle Frank's obituary was turned into a laminated book mark,
similar to the one they made for my father.
They had to edit the obituary, the printers left out my father's name.
My cousin made a CD of pictures that the Funeral home edited
to add music and peaceful scenes in between photos.
The permanent mausoleum marker
We added the flag and a few flowers-some were there already when we got there.
The funeral home also made a scrap book of images from the funeral.
The name cards
The sign in book
Pics of the flower's sent to the funeral home
there were pictures of every arrangement and the card associated with it.
Baby pics of my Dad and Uncle
Other family photos
Thank You notice in the paper.

After the parade there was a luncheon for the Honorees, 9/1/12.
I sat in place of my cousin at the lunch.
Hubby and Q took pics.
