This past week I did one of the most difficult things I have ever done in my life. I have no idea why it bothered me so bad but I went alone to the cemetery and placed a single rose on the “Bear’s” grave.
I have been to the cemetery several times but this time it was very difficult. His tombstone is completed and gives his name, birth and passing information and at the bottom is says “Home With Jesus.” When I saw that I felt much better and keep that in my mind. He is truly “Home With Jesus” and I am sure enjoying heaven in all its beauty.
My granddaughter, Reanna, wanted grandma to make some taco soup this week so I made a big pot. She brought a friend and they both loved the soup and particularly loved the dessert. Then her big sister and husband had some of the taco soup for supper and by the time I fed the group it was gone and I felt pretty good that they loved it so much.
The dessert was a blueberry dump cake. Just two cans of blueberry pie filling, a white cake mix dumped on top and two sticks of melted butter poured over the top. Baked it at 350 degrees and it was a hit also. Guess I still can make them happy and it helped me a lot to start getting back to normal. So I tried a few other recipes that the Bear loved and they have been a hit also.
Prepare pizza crust and put on a pizza pan. Spoon a layer of pizza sauce on top and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and plenty of fried, crumbled bacon. Bake at 375 to 400 degrees until done. Immediately after removing from the oven spread with mayonaisse. Top with shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes.
3 cups cooked chicken, chopped
2 small onions, chopped
2 small raw potatoes, chopped
2 large carrots, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1⁄2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 1⁄2 cups chicken gravy
In food grinder, chop chicken, onion, potato and carrots. Mix well with remaining ingredients. Place in slow pot, cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.
Peanut Butter Pieces
2 sticks butter
1 pound powdered sugar
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup peanut butter
1 (12-ounce) package chocolate chips
Place butter in large bowl and microwave on HIGH for 2-3 minutes. When butter is melted, add sugar, crumbs and peanut butter. Mix until smooth; press into 8-by-8-inch dish; microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes. Put chocolate chips in large bowl and microwave 50 percent for 3-4 minutes; stir several times while cooking. When melted, spread over peanut butter layer. Chill. Cut into squares and store in airtight containers.
