My new favorite Holiday dish!!!!

Tonight we had and early Thanksgiving dinner over at Eric's parents house.  Hannah and Olivia spent the night with Nana and Papa, so they were already there, but Matt, Amy and Brian came too!  We had soooo many wonderful dishes and the company was exceptional.  We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful family.

A few days ago Anne and I were discussing what I should bring to this fine event and she sent me a recipe for Green Bean Bundles. I had never heard of them, but they are SO easy to make and are honestly too delicious for words!  Here is the recipe, I hope you enjoy them as much as we all did tonight!

Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles
  • 1 lbs Frozen Long Green Beans (you can use fresh if you like,but you will have to boil 1st)
  • 1 12 oz pack of bacon
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 1/4 brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Fresh Ground Pepper to taste

Ok....this is SO easy and FAST!
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Cut all bacon strips in half
  3. Wrap 6 - 7 green beans in each half piece of bacon and arrange in dish until you are out of bacon
  4. Melt butter in a bowl with brown sugar and soy sauce and give all bundles to give a good coating
  5. Sprinkle bundles with Garlic Powder and Fresh Ground Pepper
  6. Bake until bacon is crispy...about 30-40 minutes.
If you like, you can cook your bacon a little before wrapping the green bean to lessen the baking time.

...and that's it!  Let me know how you like it.

Officially the worst blogger...

Ok, it has been 2 months since my last blog, but there has been so much going on.  Gabe is getting so big and keeps me busy constantly!

Gabe loves to play and watch his favorite show Hopla in the mornings.  He drinks almost 2 gallons of milk a week and has decided to start being picky when it comes to food.  He really likes oatmeal, applesauce, and chicken nuggets but other than that I can't get him to eat any thing else.

In the T.M.I. department I finally got my period...1st one since I got pregnant with Gabe...that's right...almost 2 years without my special friend and I did not miss them at all.

We had a fun Halloween dressed up as Peter, Lois, and Stewie Griffen...Gabe was a perfect Stewie!  He is such a little booger and sometimes I really do feel like he is trying to kill me. LOL!

I got a new camera, yeah!...but I don't know how to use it yet. ;oP  I am super excited to learn how to use all the cool features, but  for now I am using Auto only.

I know there is more, but I am to tired to think and I need to get Gabe to bed.
