Happy Monday
Hey bloggy friends,
I wish each of you could have been with us this weekend with all the ladies from New LIfe Wesylan Church.
Our sweet Jesus showed up in a HUGE way and filled the hearts of all in attendance, especially me!
I can't wait to get the promised pictures and to share them with you.

While we wait for them, I'm still collecting holiday recipes and decorating ideas. I hope you will continue to post them. Here are a few from recent days:

Toasties.
mix one to two eggs with a dash of Worcestershire sauce,
a good dollop of tomato sauce/ketchup and about 1 cup of grated cheese.
take about six slices of bread, turn on the over to 180 and mix the mixture with a fork,
place bread slices on baking tray and spoon mixture on to bread.
bake in oven for around 10 minutes, slightly brown on top.
My kids can even make this recipe. h ttp://www.startwithsimplefaith.blogspot.com

Peppermint polar bears.
Basically it's smashed peppermints or candy canes and white chocolate almond bark with just a bit of mint extract.
While the chocolate is still melted from the microwave glass bowl dump all the finely smashed mints in with the extract and blend well.
You'll get a light pink mixture.
Spread out on wax paper no more then an inch thick and let cool.
This takes a few hours to completely harden and cool.
Then break into bight size pieces.
Instant hit and oh so easy to make.

Oreo Cookie balls.
crush 1 pkg of oreos (I use a food processor) and combine with 1 8oz pkg softened cream cheese. Roll into balls and chill for one hour.
Melt white chocolate (I actually use the Candiquick that you can melt in the microwave) and dip the balls.
They are delicious!

Did you know it's less than 90 days til Christmas?

Zoe,
We had such a great time with you this weekend. Thank you for sharing your time with us and for allowing God to use you in such a mighty way to bless all the women of New Life. You have such an amazing story to tell and may God bless you with many, many more chances to bless His princesses. Here are the "delish" recipes I said I would send. They are excellent holiday treats, and presents.

Peanut Butter BonBons
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 lb. butter, softened
1 box confectioners' sugar

Mix ingredients by hand. Refrigerate a few hours. Roll in small balls, put on wax paper on cookie sheet. Refrigerate again at least 1 hour.
In double boiler, melt 1 lg. pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Stir to blend thoroughly. Use two forks to dip balls in chocolate mixture. Place on wax paper on cookie sheet. Refrigerate on cookie sheet 1 hour to set chocolate covering, then place in Tupperware or other container. Keep refrigerated.

Pumpkin Roll
3 Eggs
1 cup Sugar
2/3 cup Pumpkin
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
3/4 cup All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Ginger
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon Salt
.
Filling:
8 ounces Cream cheese -- softened
4 tablespoons Butter -- or margarine
1 cup Powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

In large bowl, combine eggs and sugar, beating with an electric mixer until thick and light yellow in color. Add pumpkin and lemon juice, mixing until blended.
In separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, spices and salt. Add to egg mixture, mixing well. Spread batter into greased and waxed-paper lined 10-by-15-inch jelly-roll pan. (I don't have a jelly-roll pan - the bottom half of the boiler pan works great!)

Bake at 350 ° for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool for 15 minutes. Place cake on clean tea towel sprinkled liberally with powdered sugar. Cool 10 minutes longer. From 10- inch side, roll cake up in towel. Set aside.

While cake is cooling in towel, prepare filling. Beat together cream cheese and butter; stir in powdered sugar and vanilla and blend until smooth.
Unroll cake. Evenly spread filling over cake. Roll up cake (without the towel). Wrap in plastic wrap. Cover and chill at least 1 hour. Slice before serving. Keep leftover slices refrigerated. This pumpkin roll freezes well, but I recommend you slice before freezing also.

Remember, fresh pumpkin gives the roll a lighter texture.

Have fun with these recipes.

Hi Zoe

Wow - what a weekend we had in Lancaster, PA. It was such a pleasure to meet you finally. It was wonderful to watch how the ladies responded to you and the message that God has laid upon your heart. Isn't it amazing how God uses our life experiences to help others? I feel so blessed having been a part of this retreat and being able to hear how God has worked in your life. I pray that he will continue to bless you and your family and your ministry.
With love in Christ. Lynn
