Finished table runner and a recipe


I did finally finish up the fall table runner at the end of last week. Here's a picture of the completed project:

DH had one of those monumental birthdays last week and we had a little party to celebrate. One of the things I made for the party were these Spinach Balls. They go together quickly and are delicious.

Spinach Balls

6 eggs
1 1/2 sticks of butter, melted
1 6 oz. box of chicken stuffing mix
20 oz. of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained (I wring it out in a dish towel)
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Beat eggs until thick and lemon colored. Add butter, stuffing mix, drained spinach, Parmesan, and pepper. Roll into balls (makes about 4 dozen). Bake at 350 degrees for 11-13 mins. Serve warm. Can reheat wrapped in foil at 350 degrees for about 10 mins.

These are quite tasty and something different for an appetizer.

Something new for lunch today


We had a few new items on the menu for lunch today.

I had made an appetizer for New Year's Eve and had more of the ingredients on hand so I made another batch for today. They are called Broiled Stuffed Pepper Wedges and I found the recipe at Tammy's Recipes.

Here they are before broiling:

Here they are ready to eat:

The next new recipe was from this book that I got from my friend, Marge, for Christmas.

It is basically a stir fry of asparagus, snow peas, frozen peas, and green onions with a sauce. The sauce was OK, but the next time I plan to just season the vegetables with soy sauce and sesame oil after a quick stir fry. I thought the combination was really pretty and tasted good.

Here's a picture of the finished stir-fry:

The final new recipe was from this book that I got for Christmas from my friend, Sandy.

Sandy knows that Rob and I both have read a number of the Cat Who... mysteries by Lilian Jackson Braun. The beauty of this particular recipe was that it used up the half can of leftover jellied cranberry sauce that I had in the refrigerator left from my DSIL's recent visit. You just make a box of jello with one cup of boiling water, 1 cup of sour cream and one cup of the cranberry sauce, let it thicken slightly and pour into a baked pie shell. I did have to run the mixture through the blender because the cranberry sauce wouldn't blend in with a whisk.

We had all these new dishes with an old family favorite - Pizza Rolls. I will have to post that recipe on another day.
