Feels like an Indian Summer !!!!

Wow, the weekend weather was fantastic.  For northern Michigan, 50's in mid-November I'll definitely take!!!    Anything to avoid the snow :)   I know...not the place to be living if one wants to avoid the snow.  Well I don't mind snow but I despise driving in it.

Today I think I'll share a recipe or two !!


2 lbs. hamburger, browned
1 16oz. container french onion dip
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 to 2 cups milk
1 or 2 bags egg noodles

In stockpot, after hamburger is browned and drained, add french onion dip, soup and 1 cup milk.  Mix good.  If mix is too thick, add another cup of milk.  Will all depend on how thick you like the sauce.    Heat thoroughly, set aside on low.  Boil noodles. Dish up noodles per helping and spoon on desired sauce and serve !!!!

This dish is great as a left-over as well.

Dirt Pudding

2 boxes french vanilla pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
1 container cool whip
1 block cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 package Oreos
1 stick butter (melted)

Chop 3/4 of oreos into baking dish, mix with melted butter and pat into dish as a crust.   Set aside.

In medium bowl, mix pudding packets, milk, cream cheese, cool whip and sugar until well blended.  Pour on top of Oreo crust.  Crumble remaining oreos and sprinkle over pudding mixture.

Refrigerate a couple hours to make sure pudding sets up.

*** if you have kids, for a fun treat, only pour half of the pudding mix on Oreo crust then sporadically place gummy worms in the pudding then put remaining pudding then sprinkled oreos. 


Hope you're all having a great day !!!

Men in Uniform

TGIF!!!! and many thanks to all our men and women in the military doing what they do to keep us all safe!!!!!

We also have another New Release from Turquoise Morning Press just in time for Veterans Day.....stop on over to take a look.....

Digital Download - Available Formats - EPUB, MOBI, LIT, LRF, PDFTrade Paperback Print Coming November 21

We admire a man in uniform, and what better way to celebrate it than a collection of stories inspired by men fighting to defend our country, and the women who love them? This sweet collection of romance spans the generations of men of valor from present day dating back to World War II.

The Authors:

The Imposter, Jennifer Johnson

String of Pearls, Margaret Ethridge

Mind over Matter, Ruth J. Hartman

Dorthea’s War, Lozi Hart

Faith, Love, & the Coastguard, Julie Anne Lindsey

Knight in Armor, Jennifer Anderson

Lightning Always Strikes Twice, Patricia Marie Warren

We even have a review already: 

This Men in Uniform collection is perfect for reading and reflecting on the lives and relationships of military families--many of them budding love relationships! Although all of the stories are sweet romance stories, you get a taste for the everyday lives of men in uniform (and their loved ones). I can't say that I have a favorite of the bunch, each author brought a unique voice and style to the collection, and they are all nicely written. This was a perfect read for today, Veteran's Day. As the blurb goes, "we admire a man in uniform" and I admire the authors of these tales -- they did honor to our soldiers and their stories. Nicely done collection, uplifting and definitely romantic!

Don't miss out!!!   You'll be sorry.....

Have a great day and happy reading
