Bacon and eggs?
Isn't this darlin?
Well you can whip these out easy easy!
white chocolate melting chips
yellow chocolate covered candies
( you know the ones. _&_)
Place two pretzels side by side on wax paper. You may want to have several pairs lined up on the wax paper so that you can work quickly as your chocolate will harden fast! Melt chocolate and drizzle over each pair of pretzels in the shape of a fried egg. Then place the yellow chocolate candy in the center. Allow to COMPLETELY cool before moving!
Brownies baked and cooled
( your choice out of a box or baked from scratch)
One 8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. butter, softened
2 tsp. vanilla
1 lb. pkg. powdered sugar
Beat together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Blend in vanilla. Sift powdered sugar. Gradually beat together powdered sugar and mixture. Then spread mixture over Brownies.
Top with finely chopped pecans and enjoy!
Just be sure to have a BIG glass of milk
Thanks for dropping by Y'all!
Be sure to visit Gollum for more Foodie Fridays!!!

We also had quiche and wine. It was a terrible stormy night, yet a lot of people braved torrential downpours to come out and support Cam and make a donation to his campaign.
Thank you to the Blue Phrog Art Gallery for having us,

So what does the Prince do with himself while she is away? He plays baseball on the Wii.
It is too funny! He is most likely the only two year old that doesn't watch cartoons, ONLY sports. ONLY football and baseball! He runs around singing the FOX sports theme! Goodness gracious!
We got a package from London !!!!
Which was very exciting for the children.
We have precious friends across the big blue ocean and recently, on a trip to the USA, their plane was forced to land. They were STRANDED for some time in Iceland. So they were sure to include a pencil from Iceland for us!
Well, that is it for today!
Y'all come back
and DON'T forget to register for the drawing

Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Let sit for a minute. Add the sugar and salt. Mix. Add the cooking oil , 2 eggs, 2 cups of flour and beat until smooth.
Stir in 3 more cups of flour.
Let the dough "rest" for 15 to 20 minutes.
Cut the cinnamon rolls into equal sized slices (about one inch wide each I make larger rolls so I cut much larger slices)
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes until the cinnamon rolls are golden brown.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes and then turn out of the pans.
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
milk or cream (2 to 4 tablespoons)
See my cinnamon roll candle?
You can barely tell the difference!
It smells like the real thing!
