So today is July 5th, can you believe the year is half over. Christmas is only 173 days away for those who are counting. Me I usually wait till the last minute meaning the last week. That’s when I have time to run from store to store. Maybe I will get a head start this year. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
So how has everyone been doing? I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th. Me I was at work. I work at Schnucks as the Floral Manager, we as a store had a 4th event. I helped to sell brats and hotdogs as meals for $2.00 Thursday and Friday. All proceeds go to the Women Center. We had such a good turn out. Exceeded everything we thought we would do. It gives you such a good feeling when you can help others.
I’m having a time on here trying to figure out how to get bloggers buttons, how to make my own button. If anyone knows please share that with me.
So I got this recipe from facebook and can’t wait to make them in the morning.
Hard Core Country
Fried Peach Pie
For the filling:
6 to 7 oz dried fruit, such as peaches, apples, or apricots
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
4 Tbsp (½ stick) butter or margarine
1 Tbsp lemon juice
½ tsp ground cinnamon
For the dough:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
½ cup shortening
½ cup milk, plus more if needed
1.Place the dried fruit in a large saucepan and add the water and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the fruit is tender and the sugar is dissolved, about 20 minutes.
2.Add all the other ingredients and mash together with a potato masher or fork. Set aside while you prepare the dough.
3.To make the dough, in a medium bowl, combine the flour and salt. Cut in the shortening with a long-tined fork. Add the milk and stir until the dough sticks together. Divide into 10 portions. Roll each portion out on a floured surface into a 5- or 6-inch circle. Place 2 tablespoons of filling in each. Wet the edges and fold over, crimping with a fork.
4.In a large skillet, pour the oil to a depth of ¼ inch and heat over medium heat. Add the fruit pies to the hot oil and fry until browned on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes, turning as needed. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.
Makes 10 pies
Come on morning. I just happen to have apple, cherry and peach filling. I hope you enjoy the recipe. Catch ya later.
I hope everyone has had a great day today. I’m glad it’s Saturday cause that only means I’m off tomorrow. I’ve had to get a journal because of everything floating around in my head that I want to share with you. It’s hard to know where to begin. I could give you all sorts of things but I have no picture to go with it. I’m so bad of cooking or making a craft that I forget to take a picture. So if I post something it’s not that I forgot but I do not have a picture right now and it will come in the near future.
We have our 35th class reunion this year. If anyone has a great idea on centerpieces please let me know. I’ve seen some on Pinterest that I like but not sure if I want to go with them. We’ve used old pictures in the past and will still have them but was wanting something different. Don’t ask me what I’m looking for because I haven’t found it yet. May someone out there has had some cool centerpieces. Just keep me in mind.
I hope you are doing well. My mind is going crazy with the things I want to share with you. There are so many recipes, crafts along with everyday stuff I use handed down from my mom, my mother in law, grandmas and friends. There seems like there isn’t enough time in the day to get them all on here.
I am new to blogging and I’m so excited in the stuff I’m learning. I do have to give a big shout out to William Connor. He has helped me so much in showing me how to manage things on here. Along with getting me to understand all of this because its all Greek to me. It’s probably good that I don’t have a vacation soon. I would spend all my time on my blog instead of getting things done.
I have to admit it now, my name is EVA AND I’M ADDIDICTED TO BLOGGING. There it’s finally out in the open. I feel so much better. If you could see me I’m smiling from ear to ear!!! So does anyone feel the way I feel? I think about this at work, driving down the road. I think I have it bad. Well it’s 10p and the alarm will be going off at 6a. Guess I better go and hit the pillow. I do have to pay the bills, this doesn’t make me money. I hope everyone has a great evening. Catch ya tomorrow night.
Father’s day is really hard for me. I lost my dad about two years ago. I didn’t get to see him much because of some circumstances. But I think of him all the time. I only have one picture of me and him, I use to have his voice but when Verizon decided to play with everyone’s phone I lost it. It about killed me. I will never get that back. I’ve got memories and I’m happy with that. Happy Father’s day dad, I love you and miss you deeply.
