'Later!


Well, I have had this blog for 7 years now, and I think it's time for me to move on. 

I don't plan on writing any more entries, but you know what they say, "Never say never."  So, who knows?  We'll leave that open, just in case.  Because you know if I find out something incredible, I will have to share it!   :)

Thank you for reading and coming along with me on this journey.  I really do love sharing this and that, and I love the thought of someone finding these posts someday and finding something in them that helps them in some small way.

And thank you for putting up with a blogger with so few words to say.  I'm a visual type of person, so my blog has been rich with photos.  Thank goodness.  I don't have as many words in me as I sometimes wish.

I imagine when you read this, I will still be knitting lace, playing with my furry babies, and enjoying the good life with my sweet husband.  I really am a lucky dog.  ♥ !!!

I mean, blessed!!!  :)  LOL!

So, take it easy and take care, and don't forget one of my favorite Bible verses:

James 4:8   
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ !!!

XOXO,

Favorite Product -- Ultra Repair Cream



Yes, this is my newest find!

This is really yummy cream, not only for your face and neck, but for your whole body. 

It is called Ultra Repair Cream, and it's made by First Aid Beauty.  It is a serious cream for eczema and the like, with no parabens, chemicals, perfumes, or harsh ingredients.

I have found it to be a really hydrating cream that I think is better than creams 10X the price!  It definitely works better on my neck than some fancy creams that I've tried in the past.

I bought mine on QVC, but it's on Amazon, too.  You would have to check and see, but the last time I looked, the 14 oz. size was the best value.

(Do you know how huge of a jar that is??  It's the SUPER size!)

Here's a link to it on Amazon:  Ultra Repair Cream.

But don't rule out QVC.  They have some exclusive scents, and I especially love the pink grapefruit one.  It's very light and sweet to me.  And the best part is, they use essential oils, not chemical perfumes.

As of this writing, QVC has a set of 4 (3 flavors plus unscented) for a very good price.  Here's a link to that:  QVC set of 4   And sometimes they will have a special deal going, so keep an eye out for that.

First Aid Beauty makes several different creams, but frankly, this one does it all for me.  Your mileage may vary.  :)

Anyway, I just love it and if you were here, I'd be grabbing my jars and letting you slather some on.  It's so good that you might want to share it with others.

'Tis the season!

XOXO,
Lucky Dog

Rice Recipe and Sausage Rolls Recipe


[Here are two of our favorite recipes, 
just in time for the holidays!]

How is it that I have never put this rice recipe on this blog?  That's crazy!

It is so easy and so delicious! 

Well, of course it is! 
It starts with a whole stick of butter!!  :)

Here are the ingredients:



And here it is, finished. 



Sometimes I make this for both Thanksgiving and Christmas!

And here is the recipe:

RICE CASSEROLE

2 cans of Campbell's chicken broth
2 cans of Campbell's beef broth
2 cups uncooked white rice, not instant
1 stick butter, melted

4 green onions, chopped
4 oz. canned mushrooms, drained 

(I don't ever put the onions or the mushrooms in.)

Melt butter in lasagna or similar dish in MW.
Put rest of ingredients into the dish.

Bake at 400° for 1 hour.


And even though I don't have any photos for you, here is another recipe that I can't believe I've never shared here.  Mr. Man always asks me to make this for breakfast functions at his workplace, and he tells me that it is always the first to go.  (!)

SAUSAGE ROLLS

[This makes two separate logs.]

1 lb. sausage  (Owens, Jimmy Dean…)
(1) 8 oz. box of Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
2 crescent roll packages

1 egg white

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Brown sausage; drain on paper towels.
Mix sausage and softened cream cheese in a bowl.

Unroll one crescent roll pkg. & form into a rectangle, smooshing seams together.  (I did it on waxed paper.)

Put half the sausage mixture down the middle of the rectangle lengthwise.

Fold up sides and place in a 9X13 pan or on a cookie sheet. 
(This is easier to do holding the waxed paper, instead of the crescent roll itself)

Do the same with the second pkg./half.  
(Place them side by side)

Brush the egg white over the tops.

Bake 350° for 20 minutes.

I have these two recipes (and so many others) in my collection only because of kindhearted and generous cooks who shared their recipes with me.  I am so grateful that they did, and now I'm passing them along to you and yours.

Enjoy!

XOXO,
Lucky Dog
