Hello everyone! It sure is cold today, the temp on the bank thermostat says 50 degrees. Haven’t turned my heat on yet, my nephew Michael and me have a contest every year to see who can hold out the longest without the heat on. We act like kids, but we are adults.
My friend Curtis Feimster will turn 60 this Friday, October 21st. He’s officially over the hill. So big happy birthday to him.
This week I’m going to talk about men and all you women know how they can get on our nerves. I loved my husband, Chuck, but he could get on my last nerve quicker than anybody. Have you ever noticed how happy they are when they do something for you or help you out around the house? I mean even when you drive down the highway and the road crew is out there is a big sign that says “men working” I guess they want a medal. I came home from work one day and Chuck was so proud, he said, “I ran the dishwasher for you.” I didn’t have the heart to tell him the dishes in the dishwasher were already clean. I just hadn’t put them up. When he got a wild hair and decided to mop the floor, he would put so much bleach in the mop bucket that it left a thick film on the floor. I didn’t have the heart to tell him about that either. You would think my eyes watering and burning from all the bleach he would have gotten the hint. Sure miss the big guy. We had a lot of fun together. I’m going somewhere with this story.
A couple of weeks ago on a Sunday night, Justin Weaver announced after church that he is praying for me a good husband. I told him not to be doing that, I don’t need a husband. The next Sunday, here comes Ronnie Black wanting to know if I have gotten any calls since Justin was praying for me a man. Well, his prayers have sure been working on all the Facebook men hackers. They have been messaging me and telling me how beautiful I am and if would I please be their friend. The funny thing is they are almost all military according to their pictures. I have to tell Justin Weaver to please be more specific when he prays.
This week’s recipe is blueberry delight. I love anything blueberry. Have a great week and enjoy the weather!
2 cups crushed graham crackers (about 14 large graham crackers)
1/3 cup sugar
10 tablespoons butter, melted
1 8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (16 oz.) Cool Whip
2 (21 oz.) cans blueberry pie filling
A few additional graham crackers crushed for the top
In a medium bowl, stir well to combine crushed graham crackers, sugar, and butter. Press evenly into the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Place in a refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill. Using a mixer, beat the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and 1/2 tub of Cool Whip. Spread over the graham cracker crust. Spread the blueberry pie filling over the top. You can also do half blueberry on one side and half cherry on the other side for two flavors. Top with the remaining Cool Whip and then the crushed graham crackers for garnish. Keep in the refrigerator and enjoy.
