Some recipes...

Here is a GREAT sandwich for a cold night! I found this recipe in a magazine.

French Dip Hoagies

1 pound thinly sliced deli roast beef
1 can French onion soup
1 tbsp Worcestercire (sp?) sauce
Hoagie rolls
Provolone cheese (or your favorite cheese, doesn't matter)
Banana Peppers

Heat soup and worcestercire sauce in small saucepan until hot. Add roast beef and stir. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Using tongs, remove meat and pile onto hoagie rolls. Top with provolone cheese and bake on a cookie sheet for about 5-8 minutes until they are toasted and cheese is melted. Remove from oven, top with hot soup mixture and banana peppers and enjoy!

These really are great sandwiches!

And on a sweet note, we made Pioneer Woman's toffee the other day, and let me tell, you, it is DIVINE! We had a great time making it and here are some tips and tweaks...

-You MUST have a candy thermometer, cookie sheets, and parchment paper (or silicone baking mats.)
-It also helps to have a helper. And by helper I mean an adult helper. This is not really a kid-friendly project but as you can see Mary Ella did have fun sprinkling on the toppings and licking the utensils and her fingers. Other than that, there's not too much a kid can do.

-I did not double or triple the recipe, just made it as it tells you to, and this made 2 cookie sheets full of toffee, which is a LOT.

-As you are heating your butter/sugar/water it will take a long while before it reaches 298 degrees. Mine seemed to creep and creep until it reached about 230 degrees then it went rather fast, so just watch it and keep stirring!
-After you pour the toffee onto the cookie sheet you will NOT have long to spread it, so spread right away or it will get hard!
-I used semi-sweet baker's chocolate and it turned out perfect.

-We used all 3 of her suggested toppings (nuts, peppermint candy and sea salt) and all 3 are wonderful! I couldn't even pick a favorite!

This would be a great teacher gift! And here is how you can give it...



Take a canned good that has a pop top (the top that you can peel back to open.) Turn the can over to the opposite end, the end without the pop top, and have your husband or another brave individual remove that end of the can around the outside rim with an industrial knife or some other manly tool. A safety can opener is your best bet. Fill your can from the bottom end up with your goodies. Then, use a hot glue gun (surprise!) to re-seal the can, careful not to get glue on any of your candy. Have fun decorating your can by putting scrapbook paper around the outside. Turn the can back over and attach a cute little label to the top (the pop top end). That way the teachers can open the pop top end and it'll look like the can had never been opened. They'll be like, "How'd you do that?" And you can be like, "I don't know, I'm just awesome."

Here's a fabulous link to this fun little project!

OR you can just save your other cans - formula cans, coffee cans, rice cereal cans, and decorate them just the same way. No industrial tools or sharp blades or glue guns required. Yay for giving! And yay for giving scrumptious gifts.

Hồng Điệp một chữ cũng không thốt ra, đẩy đoá hoa trong tay về phía trước. Đoá hoa này liền chậm rãi bay về phía Vương Lâm. Giờ phút này, mặt đất bỗng nhiên trở nên rung chuyển, thậm chí ngay cả giữa không trung cũng xuất hiện rất nhiều cái khe. Hiển nhiên uy lực của đoá hoa này đã vượt quá sức chịu đựng cực hạn của mảnh nhỏ của Tiên giới này!

- Hồng Điệp!

Sất Hổ hét lớn!

Ánh mắt Vương Lâm chợt loé lên, vỗ túi trữ vật, trong nháy mắt trong tay hắn xuất hiện một cây Cấm Phiên. Tay hắn rung lên, Cấm Phiên thoát ly bay lên không trung.

Trong miệng Vương Lâm nhẹ nhàng thốt lên hai chữ:

- Dẫn kiếp!

Không đến lúc vạn bất đắc dĩ, Vương Lâm thật sự không muốn sử dụng thanh Cấm Phiên này để dẫn thiên kiếp đánh xuống! Nếu là thiên kiếp đánh xuống, trong khi mảnh nhỏ này tan vỡ, Vương Lâm cũng không biết mình có may mắn chạy thoát được hay không!
