One of my projects this winter will be going through most, if not all, of my old photos that are scattered here and there, and trying to get them in some kind of order. This is a job that I've put off for far too long. My photos online need to be gone through, too, and many should be put in folders that are easier to find and others just need to be deleted. Maybe I'll run across something that might even find it's way into my blog. Do you have a special project you're wanting to get done this winter?
The photo above was taken last winter. I'm afraid that the water is frozen over right now. The ice isn't thick enough to walk on, as a man in a nearby town just found out while trying to rescue his dog who had fallen through the ice. Luckily, someone saw him and risked his own life to see that he was rescued. The man should have known if the ice wasn't safe enough to support a dog that it wouldn't support him. It's said that ice is never 100% safe since it doesn't freeze uniformly. So, please, be careful if your pets want to venture onto frozen ponds or lakes this winter.
Last Friday, we had friends over for dinner and I served the above pie for dessert. This is not the plate I used for dinner. I actually brought out the placemats and the Mikasa for company. :) The pie is very quick and easy to make ahead of time. Here's the recipe:
Candy Bar Pie
8 ounces Hershey candy bars
1 teaspoon instant coffee, dissolved in 2 tablespoons hot water
12 ounces Cool Whip
1 graham cracker crust
Melt the candy bar and add the coffee mixture, stirring well.
Fold in the Cool Whip until well blended.
Pour into the graham cracker crust and freeze for 2 hours.
That's all there is to it! Easy-peasy. Just my kind of dessert recipe.
I made mine about 3 hours before company arrived and it still wasn't frozen very solid and was easy to serve. Our friends liked it so much that the recipe was asked for, so I thought I'd share it with you. My chicken breast recipe was also asked for, so I'll share it another day.
It's hard to believe it's Friday again and another week has flown by.
Hope you have a terrific weekend!
Until next time....
