So today, I start anew, for me. I'll post my weekly menus again. I'll also post things that I want to share with my friends and family, pictures, recipes, etc. I won't try to "find" things to blog about, I'll just blog.

I am so sorry that I haven’t posted lately. But I have a very good reason!
MY FIRST BORN SON just came back to the US from his Navy tour (he is a pilot) to the Afghanistan region.
We’ve had a really wonderful time catching up and had a HUGE Thanksgiving dinner last Sunday. He and his family leave on Saturday to go back to CA until early December, then they are off to Japan for 2.5 years.
See you sometime next week!

My birthday is in a couple of days and my dear sweet husband got this for me early. Sorry for the blurry picture quality. I'm so excited that I was shaking when I tried to take pictures. She's my new best friend. I think I will name her Lola..........I'm off to make bread, cookies, cakes and whatever else I can find to make with her. Oh, well after all it is the holidays, right?

I've been wanting to participate in Trash To Treasure Tuesday over at Reinvented for quite some time now. I did this little transformation a little while back when I went hog wild with the Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint. I've had this brass candle holder for at least 30 years and loved it. I actually found it stuck in the very back of my junk closet, hiding, and thought it would be great transformed to the more updated colors that I have in my house. Brass had it's place here at one time, but no more.......I'd love to know what you think!
I love it! Now I am on the hunt for accessories to go with it and a pretty new home for it somewhere in my house. Don't forget to stop by Reinvented and see all the great posts there, they are so fun to see.....

So here are the ingredients:
4 cups of sliced fresh peaches (you can use canned, but fresh is better)
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of shortening
1/4 cup plus 1 tblsp. cold water
Okay, so I forgot to take pictures until after I had already put the peaches, sugar and butter in a medium saucepan. You will bring that to a boil over low heat until the peaches are tender and the mixture thickens. This takes a little while. Pour the peach mixture in a lightly buttered 10X6X2 inch baking pan and set aside.
Combine the flour and salt together and cut in the shortening until it resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle the water evenly over the flour mixture and stir it with a fork until all the ingredients are moistened. Shape pastry into a ball. Roll out the pastry to 1/8 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface and cut into 1 inch strips.
Arrange 1/2 of the strips in a lattice design over the top of the peach mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and gently press the baked pastry into the peach mixture. Repeat the lattice design again over the peaches with the remaining pastry strips. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 40 minutes. Yields 6 servings.
If you haven't already guessed, I love me some carbs!!!! This cobbler is so yummy for your tummy!
I'm linking this post to two of my favorite blogs this week. Check them both out for more great recipes to add to your current collection.
