(I'm posting this early, for those of you that need to plan ahead!)
If you feel sad, lonely or depressed about Valentine's day, remind yourself that the
holiday isn’t all about romance and couples…it’s about spreading love and
goodwill…making people smile.
Buy (or make) the
cheesy, silly paper cards and a few lollipops or cutesy pencils and give them
to the little or not so little people in your life...take the opportunity to “embrace
the kid in you”.=)
Create some fun and surprises for your friends and
family.Bake some cookies or a cake…make your own fun
and take the opportunity for a party!(I
think that the main reason that this holiday has always been so popular is that it breaks up
the winter doldrums.)
I’ll go ahead and confess that some years I’m depressed- but
then if I stop and think about it, it's because I’m focusing more on self, and less on
others. Focus on others…giving love and
joy.Not on what “you don’t have that you
think everyone else does "have”.....
It is my understanding that the TV show "Hogan's Heroes" was based on the 1953 movie "Stalag 17". And before the movie, it was a play. I hope that you enjoy it!
(oh, we used to the scene where the guys use the telescope on the neighbor girls....it's been so long, I can't remember what was wrong, how long it lasted, or if I would still skip it if I watched it today.)
To start things off, I fried up 1/2 an onion (in butter of course). Then I fried up 20 thin slices of ham lunch meat in MORE butter....that added to cheese was the filling. (the pic below was for one)
Each quesadilla had 10 slices of lunch meat, 1/4 onion, plus cheese! (My Uncle Clint said that I over-filled them, but I think that it was fine...I just had to get help opening the gizmo to get that baby out!)
This gizmo snaps shut, and sort-of crimps the outside edges shut, so there is very little leakage, and it makes sealed lines on which to cut. 2 quesadillas plus a side dish of beans & cheese fed four adults.
While it was fun to use, I don't know that I would ever want to own one myself. If you want, you can buy your own Quesadilla cooker HERE.
I always miss "Throw-back Thursdays"....but not this time~ I hope that you enjoy these!
That bear is "Petie", and was Benjamin McKee's...I'm sure that he did not mind sharing with me. (he had a "Sweetie" too, named for the the children's book called "Sweetie & Petie") I'm pretty sure that I remember this play time.
Did you know that I don't mind getting wet & dirty? Provided I'm dressed for the occasion!
