Stretch Your Imagination
Bags, Tags, Boxes and More
and one Disney cart, not sure which I would go for, though.

I want the Pagoda cart. My mom's side of the family is Japanese so this cart holds a lot of potential.

It's coming (along with Day 6).

These days, I'm on a different time-pattern than you all.

I'm a day ahead & it's only 4:30 in the morning!

I just ordered this one, along with From My Kitchen (for my recipe albums) & Life's A Beach (for my days here on the island!)

I so can't wait for them to arrive!

My husband recieved orders to the island of Guam.

Guam is a dot in the Pacific Ocean, a U.S. Territory & the sister island to Hawaii. The local saying is 'Where America's Day Begins'.

On the up side, it's gorgeous, just like being on vacation everyday. We have a 24 hour K-Mart, a Home Depot, a mall, an outlet mall & a Ross.

(Talk about having to be both selective & or creative!)

Our Christmas tree this year is one with a silver tin star, paper chains, cranberries & popcorn!

This is slightly off topic and just a bit of trivia about calling birds..something I only found out recently when reading an old English version of the 12 Days of Christmas and I thought it was interesting...the 4th in the 12 days of Christmas song is actually colly or collie birds which means black birds. Why black birds for Christmas?..this would be another food gift as black birds were often eaten in pies (as in four and twenty black birds baked in pie).

Not off topic whatsoever!

Love it!

Leave it to us, to mess up the real traslation!

LOL!



Blackbird Pie...Hmmm...Now, I'm wondering if was any good back in the day?

As a sidenote, also, wonder why there are way too many of them these days...The worse I ever saw, was in Texas....It was literally like the movie 'The Birds'.

In keeping with the theme....

Black Bird Pie Recipe

* 3 1/2 cups self-rising flour
* 1 cup very warm water (almost hot)

Mix little biscuit dough. Knead 'til tough and dry - roll with rolling pin 'til very thin and cut into 2-inch strips.

(Clean birds according to information posted under recipe)

Birds:

* 25 black birds well covered with water
* 3/4 lb. sausage (link) - optional

Cook until tender (at least 2 hours or 1 hour for chicken). Salt and pepper to taste. When black birds are tender, keep broth at a rolling boil and drop in pastry - piece by piece, shaking pot constantly to keep pastry pieces separated. When all is in pot, place cover on and let cook for approximately 10 minutes. Let set for about ten more minutes. Then eat.

If you are unfamiliar with making pastry from scratch, you can substitute canned biscuits (roll individually with rolling pin). Or buy frozen pastry from bakery. If you use canned biscuits, let set for one-half hour and roll or flatten again to thinness desired.
