Flip Camcorder decided to malfunction just as the singing was about to begin. Thankfully, I thought to take my digital camera and was able to take several pictures of Alana in her beautiful evening dress. The school had a bake sale to raise money for the dresses. Alana and I made Peanut Butter Delight Cookies, a recipe I’ll share with you soon.
Here is a clip of last year’s concert. Alana is on the left in the first row. My amazing daughter has grown considerably in the last year and is nearly as tall as her music teacher.
reseasoning, but should be ready for blackened catfish soon.
I also purchased a glass bowl for a mere $2. I enjoy having fresh fruit in my home. The bowl and fruit look nice on my kitchen table.
Rockin Around the Christmas Tree playing on the radio, filled me with a sense of the season that I’ve not felt in a long time. Yes, I’ve been smitten by the Christmas Spirit. We’ve got a tree to decorate!
It occurs to me that I’ve not posted a dessert recipe. Here’s an easy one that I learned from Shannon Lindell. Warning, this pie could possibly turn you into a chocoholic.
Hershey Bar Pie
1/2 cup milk
6 Hershey Bars
2 (8 oz) tubs whipped topping
1 graham cracker or chocolate cookie crust
Break 5 1/2 Hershey bars into little squares.
Combine marshmallows, milk and candy bar pieces in a medium saucepan over low to medium-low heat. Slowly melt together, stirring often.
Remove from heat after ingredients are completely melted; let cool for 15 to 20 minutes.
After the mixture is cool to the touch, fold in one tub of whipped topping. Pour into a pie crust and chill in the refrigerator for at least four hours.
Top with remaining tub of whipped topping and grate remaining half of Hershey bar on top.

White Christmases are rare in this section of The Old North State. I’ve seen two in my life, the most recent was last year. The odds of a Christmas with snow are slim here, but we can hope...we can always hope...
