Thanks to all

I don't know why the previous post won't let me have spaces instead of a big runon. Corn Chowder 2 cans corn 1 can creamed corn cooked bacon cream Just mix in a pan and heat. I add cream to tast and of course lots of bacon. Hopefully, this is easier to read.


Easy to make muffins- both sweet and savory. Today is a cold, windy, wet day. I just might need to make some of these Parmesan Herb muffins to go with the Corn Chowder we are having for dinner. Thought I would share the recipe for the Corn Chowder- so easy! Corn Chowder (serves 2) 2 cans corn 1 can creamed corn cooked bacon cream Just mix together and heat, the more cream, the less chunky. I do like it chunky. And obviously, the more bacon, the better. You could also add some sauted onions but I am not big on onions so I leave them out. How easy is this!

I don't usually show pics of my home but

I am so pleased with some of my Halloween Vignettes that I thought I would share with you!
Here is a close up of my little rats. I got them at the Dollar Store.
Miss Pumpkin Head is a favorite of mine. My good friend, Cindy made her and then replaced her head when our dog chewed it off. Now that is a good friend!
Another Friend, Jean, made my Princess Frog. She watches me as I watch TV.

The October Romantic Homes is here

Here is a pic from this issue. Love this bathtub but really, at my age, think I would need lots of help getting in and out. That would not be a pretty sight.

Fall Yummies

Just in- Aspen Hot Cider mix. There is nothing like sipping hot spiced cider in the fall. Also now available in individual packets. You just add water. The corn on the cobs are so fun. Pop it in the microwave and the corn pops right off the cob!
