Visit Knit Picky and tell Margie how much you're going to miss her, too!
Think we could start a petition to get her to change her mind!?!
Love & hugs Margie girl!! Wishing you success and happiness among the Texas cowboys.

Yesterday, I received these mitts as a Christmas gift. What a special gift! And Zana's amazing talent (and goodness) shines through again. These are fabulous and I can't wait to wear them...in fact, shopping today is a perfect time!
Thank you, Zana!!

My grandmother, from Taylorsville, Mississippi, made an amazing variety of cookies every year at Christmas that included Date Nut Roll, Pecan Sandies, the best Fudge I've ever had, Peanut Brittle, and the all time standard....Fresh Apple Tarts. But for some reason, these simple, cute Christmas Wreath Cookies were my favorite. And they even made your teeth green if you smiled really big just after the first bite! Always fun to do when we had visitors over to see the grandchildren.
Here's a photo of my sweet nieces, now living in Australia, showing off their version. It seems they don't have "Red Hots" in Australia so they used Red M&M's. Sometimes, in the past we've substituted the red squirt icing and that works well, too.

One of my new co-workers, Judy, knew I grew up in Georgia. She, too, is from Georgia and brought me a dozen fresh tomatoes from her home town of Claxton, GA (home of the world famous Claxton Fruit Cake that we may/or may not enjoy during the holidays)!
So when you have more tomatoes than you can use for a sandwich, but not enough to can, as if I knew how....here's the perfect recipe:
1-9" deep dish pie shell (bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes)
4-6 ripe tomatoes (fresh....don't even try this in the winter)
-rinse and cut up tomatoes into bite size pieces, try to drain them very well while shell is baking, dab with paper towels if needed. Now my friends, Susan and Belva, would take this tomato juice and create another great dish but we won't talk about their overachieving kitchen skills!
1-2 cups of grated cheddar cheese (you may mix in various cheeses if you like)
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon of Tabasco (or if I'm out, I'll use a sprinkle of crushed red pepper) or you can skip this part
Salt, pepper, onion powder (or fresh for more onion taste), and basil
Sprinkle bottom of pre-baked pie shell with drained tomato chunks. Shake a dash of onion powder on top. In medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, a little salt & pepper, a dash or two of basil, the hot sauce/pepper and the cheese-fold together. This mixture will be thick so you'll need to use a spatula to spread small amounts on top without messing up the tomatoes. Once topping is on, bake in 350 degree oven until brown and bubbly, anywhere from 25-45 minutes (mine is usually done in 30 minutes). Let set up for 10-15 minutes, cut and serve.
Yum, Yum!! Let me know if you try it...post some pictures! We can have a tomato pie gallery!!
Now my cooking is done for the day, so Steve....you're up.
