Recipes to Share

    Quick and Easy 
      1 lb hamburger ( I prefer less than 10% fat ) 
     1/4 c  Instant rice ( Uncle Ben's, and yes it does make a difference! )  
    1/4 c bread crumbs - crumbled, not cubed 
      1/4 t sage 
    1/4 t pepper 
     1/4 t onion salt 

      1/4 t oregano 
    1/4 t paprika 
     ( or 1/2 t seasoning salt works too instead of the spices ) 
     2 eggs - beaten 

      1/4 c barbeque sauce 
    1/4 c grated cheese ( cheddar or jack work best ) 

     Toss all ingredients together except for barbeque sauce and grated cheese. I use my hands, it
     is very gushy, but it makes me feel like I am really cooking. :: grins ::  
     Shape and place in a Large loaf pan.  Make an indent in the center, along the length of the
     loaf.  Sprinkle grated cheese, then cover up with loaf.  Top with Sauce. 

    Cook at 450 for 35 - 45 minutes d'pending on your tastes.  
     Serve with potatoes and green beans and hot muffins.  Yum!

  • Antidotes

    On Halloween night, one house looked just like all the others, but. . . when the children went up to it, they were invited into the garage which was filled with furniture and a tv set with only fuzz on it.  The children were offered candy, and as they took something. . . a man jumped out.  One little boy looked frightened at first, then he was NOT going to let anyone get HIS candy. . . and he started swinging his pillowcase full of loot for all he was worth!  The surprise was then on the goblin!

  • Girls Night Out

  • Some women have expressed interest in getting together once a month to play Bunco.  If you are interested, contact Becky Barry to sign up or to get more details. 

    Several ideas have been suggested for girls nights out.  We have had scrapbooking parties, Pampered Chef parties, Longaburger parties, and even field trips around the area. 

    If you need a baby sitter, many are available in our neighborhood.  A neighborhood that takes care of its own, is a safe neighborhood.  It is said that a child is raised by a community.  Lets make sure that we know those who are helping us raise ours. 

  • If you babysit or are available to do so, please contact one of the board members and we will make sure your services are listed in the Advertising section. 
  • Hints and Helps

  • This is very interesting...please take time to read this: 
    A cardiologist says it's the truth.... 
    Heart Attack 
    For your info. If everyone who gets this sends it to 10 people, you can bet 
    that we'll save at least one life. 
    Read This...It could save your life! 
    Let's say it's 6:15 p.m. and you're driving home (alone of course), after an 
    unusually hard day on the job.  You're really tired, upset and frustrated. 
    Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to 
    radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw.  You are only about five 
    miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don't know if 
    you'll be able to make it that far.  What can you do?You've been trained 
    in CPR but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it 
    on yourself.
