Well, today we didn't relax. As much as I wanted to, especially after getting rid of that nasty stomach flu.
I feel better! Yea! My husband and I put all of the Christmas decorations away today. It actually looks bare around here. I cleaned along the way. It will take awhile to totally get rid of the glitter. The house is clean and neat. After that, I made Oreo Truffles. We are going to a friend's New Years Eve party tonight and they requested Oreo Truffles. We have a joke going on...
They are doing homemade pizzas. They have a guy coming over and he is going to make lots of pizzas for everyone. Our good friends just put in an outdoor kitchen, complete with an Pizza oven from Italy.
Here's the Oreo Truffles......
The red balls are Berry burst Oreos with red- Vanilla Candy Melts
The chocolate covered balls in the middle are Peanut Butter Oreo with chocolate Candy Melts.
The ones on the right are Chocolate Cream Oreos with Chocolate Candy Melts.
The recipe is:
1-( 16 ounce) package of Oreo Sandwich cookies.....choose your flavor.
1 (8 ounce) package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1 Package of Candy melts....choose your color.
Crush the Oreo cookies in a ziplock bag....I use a rolling pin.
Then add the softened Cream Cheese to the bag and squish together. Put in the freezer for 1 hour.
Take out and form small balls....Put back in the freezer to firm up.
I put half of the Candy melts in a bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Take out and stir until melted. Take your Oreo Truffles out of the freezer and put toothpicks on each one. I use a large spoon to coat the Oreos. Set on wax paper. I remove the toothpick before it sets up and drop a little Candy Melt coating to cover the hole...Let set up.
I made Homemade Clam chowder soup last night. It sounded really good to me at the time. I used Martha Stewart's recipe with some changes.
It was delicious! Here's the recipe.....
This is a project my husband did. For quite some time, we really wanted cabinet fronts on the dishwasher and warming oven in our new Dining room. We were told these appliances couldn't take cabinet fronts.
After talking to a Master Craftsman who remodeled our neighbor's Great room, he told us...it is possible!
We ordered the cabinet fronts and my husband installed them. Don't they look great! Now, everything matches and it looks less like a kitchen in there now. Great job Paul!
So, I am making this a small post, due to I have to rest my back a little and then get ready for the party tonight.
Happy New year everyone! I welcome 2012. Stay healthy....
Hugs to all...
