The Perfect M and M Crystal Serving Dish

War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 126When I was in Jackson, Mississippi this summer with a friend on a buying trip, I found a divided American cut crystal compote. It was the right size to hold the 4 kinds of M&M’s. ( Plain, Peanut, Almond, and Peanut Butter) The  Sunday night I was invited out to eat with friends. I asked them what could I bring and they said M&M’s. So, I bought the four kinds and covered the top and took it to the dinner. The perfect M&M serving dish!MM1

Big Apple Pecan Cinnamon Tart

War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 108A friend gave me four apples. I hate to waste food, so I decided to make a large apple pecan cinnamon tart. I had an apple dessert at Susan’s and that’s where I learned how to slice the apples and lay them half way on top of each other in rows. I used my old tart dough recipe that is posted in other tart blogs here. Then I laid the apples down, sprinkled cinnamon, and spooned over a mixture of a stick of melted butter, a cup and a half of sugar. a little nutmeg, and pecan pieces. The dough had a small lip like a pizza to keep it all together. I took it to Herman and Glenda’s for supper and they all seemed to like it. Then I took the rest to the cooks and the girls in the school office. It is a lot easier than making a pie. You just cut with a knife and serve squares. Yummy in the Tummy! I posted this for Dixie. She’s always wants my recipes. LOL!apple 1

Running into Friends at Ortega’s

Carol called and asked me to meet her and Glenda for lunch at Ortega’s Sunday. I had a tart in the oven and was running a bit late. Got there and I beat them. LOL! When we got in there was Rick and Paula and Ben and Debbie. Great to see everyone. Love living in Mo-Town! We all had a good visit.

Gifts from Liz – She was Cleaning Out

War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 117Liz was cleaning out the spare bedroom and straightening the attic closet to get the guest bedroom done for Pete’s father, Dan, who has come to spend the winter here on the mountain. She told me she was leaving some stuff in the car, but I was really surprised that she left a mahogany luggage rack with needlepoint and a miniature iris petit point framed piece. They were from her Granny Ettman’s things. Mrs. Ettman lived in Memphis and did needlework. Mama lived in Forrest City and Liz thinks they shopped at the same stores for the needlework supplies. They made several things alike. The luggage rack is just like one Mama had at one time. I remember it. Had the same daisy pattern on it. I really liked both and now am trying to find the right place for them.liz 1War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 123

War Eagle Craft Fair – Part 1

War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 084I was invited to go to the War Eagle Craft Fair at War Eagle, AR with Pete and Liz, Anna Grace, Ruth Ellen, and Dan. We met on the mountain at 7:00 and headed out in two cars. We stopped in Russellville and got breakfast and then when up to the Fayetteville area. When we got close it was something to see. we were on a bluff looking down at the valley below and there were 100’s of vehicles and tents and buildings and people everywhere!!! It really was amazing. I haven’t seen that many people since I left Silver Dollar City.  People everywhere. We got there pretty early considering and got parking places on the front of row 4. But there were acres of parking places. We shopped and browsed and bought. We left about 2:30 and went to another craft show in a hotel. That one was huge, also. We shopped until late and ate supper before we left the area. It was a fun, but really tiring day. I’m glad I went with friends.War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 100War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 099War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 098War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 105War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 104War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 103War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 102War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 101War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 050War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 049War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 048War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 047War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 046War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 051War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 052War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 051War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 063War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 062War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 061War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 060War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 059War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 058War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 057War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 056War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 055War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 048War Eagle, apple pecan, Oct 20th 053
