2 cups walnut halves
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup sugar
Cinnamon to taste
Heat walnuts, butter and sugar in a large skillet on medium heat.
When you see the sugar starting to melt make sure all the nuts are coated.
Transfer them to the parchment paper.
Separate them as fast as you can, in a single layer, so you don't wind up with a popcorn ball looking mess.
Lightly sprinkle with cinnamon.
Then let them cool.
Mod Podge Super Gloss
Paint pallet or small cups
First make sure your bottle is clean.
Then using your Sharpie draw your design onto the bottle.
If you make any mistakes use rubbing alcohol and a q-tip to rub it off.
Mix one color at a time (they dry out fast) mixing the mod podge and food color together in your paint pallet or cups.
*Go light on the food coloring remembering it's concentrated.
Paint in your design as you like.
Using the food color and super gloss Mod Podge made it more see through and more like stain glass.
I loved the effect.
I recommend creating a list of places/areas in your home to
declutter starting with the easiest… which doesn’t sound like all that, but you’ll
feel more accomplished if you can get something done even if it’s simple.
Use the four box method. One box for keeping, another for storing, one for
trash, and one box for Goodwill/ Garage sale. Doing this means no item gets passed over.
I clean out areas for a solid 15 minutes before taking a break or just 15 minutes a day. If you
clean for a solid 15 minutes then you are more likely to finish the task. I tell
myself, “If I can clean for this long then I can keep going.”
Take pictures to track your progress. Take before and after pictures this will also help you to feel more accomplished and to remind you and others of where things go after you declutter.
Teach your kids where things go. If we teach your kids where things go, and start teaching them the habit of putting them there, you’ll go a long way to keeping your house decluttered.
Remember it's not going to happen over night it takes patience and hard work.

In pot or bowl heat the broth.
Now turn everything off.
Set out bowls, and crackers.
Let everyone make their soup as they desire.
I decided to make chicken noodle soup this way because not one person in my house likes chicken noodle soup the same way. This way everyone eats the entire bowl and some even went back for seconds. Plus my kid said. "This was fun."
Salt and pepper to taste (I use about 1/4 a teaspoon of

Thaw Ziploc bag of filling.
Preheat oven to 375°.
Make pie crust as directed, using 9-inch glass pie plate.
Pour filling into crust-lined pie plate.
Top with second crust; seal edge with a fork or pinch them together.
Cut slits in several places on top crust.

During last 15 to 20 minutes of baking, cover edge of

* I used the turkey from
Thanksgiving and made the filling at that time. Then I used a quart size Ziploc bag and
froze the filling until I needed it. Then you can just by a pie crust and just bake your diner in about 35 minutes.
