Perfume in a Suitcase


Green Bean Casserole

Green Bean Casserole is probably my most favorite holiday dish.
I serve it at both Christmas and Thanksgiving. I have two recipes, and both require the crunchy onions on the top

My recipe that is super easy:

4 cans of cut green beans

2 cans of cream of mushroom soup

Mix those two ingredients together and put in a buttered casserole dish, cover it with foil, put in the oven at 350' until cooked through, about 30 minutes.  After you pull the dish out, take off the foil and top with the crunchy fried onions.  You can uses French's Onions or Trader Joe's.....LOVE Trader Joe's!!!

My second recipe for Green Bean Casserole

Make a béchamel sauce and add mushrooms....this is your cream of mushroom sauce.
Fresh green beans that you snip the tops and put in the crockpot with veggie stock or chicken stock and cook until tender on low.  A few hours.  Scoop beans out and put into the béchamel sauce and put into buttered casserole dish, heat in the oven until heated through...taste it..tee hee...if it's good it's done ...sprinkle with the fried green onions.

Salt and pepper everything the way you like :)

Turkey Pan Fried Burritos

I used turkey from Thanksgiving and shredded it, sprinkled some taco seasoning on it. I warmed some tortillas up.  They are easier to work with when they are warm. I filled them with turkey, pico de gallo, and lots and lots of cheddar cheese. I folded them burrito style and put them in a buttered pan that was heated. I cooked them like grilled cheese until they we were golden brown. I turned the heat off, sprinkled more cheese on top. Put the lid on for the cheese to melt. I took them off the heat completely. I cut up lettuce and made fresh guacamole and topped them with sour cream too ♥️ 

Put on a Christmas plate.....and made with lots of love by me :)

Day Planner Sheet

 Happy Tuesday...is it Tuesday?  It feels so much more like Saturday.  It has been another busy day in my daily life. The holidays are fast approaching and I am ready for them...lol. I made a list of questions and printed them out for discussion questions at the Thanksgiving day table.  Different..
I am looking forward to black Friday, it is like a date with my husband.  We tie up loose ends of our Christmas shopping and is so much fun.

Above is a little day of the week planner sheet....I am sharing it with you. Feel free to use it too...

Early Sneak Peak

Happy Day!!
I started decorating for Christmas.  I put up a white tree in my living room.  The white tree represents my mother.
Front and center is the letter G.  I put white lights all around the tree and wrapped it with white and silver ribbon with a bunch of white bows and ornaments and touches of red.  The pictures do not do it justice, as it is so much more in real life.  The photos do not do it justice.

 Thank you for visiting.
Is your tree up or are you waiting until after Thanksgiving?

Speaking of Thanksgiving, do you have your turkey yet?
