Green Bay Packers World Champions

Super Bowl XLV
Where
Hero's Are Born
And
Hearts Are Broken

My heart was not broken.  My Packers came to play.
  They played their "hearts" out for the love of the game,
for the love of their "fans"
for the great city, Green Bay
and for the great State, Wisconsin
It was out turn...our time...we were due
we were not to be denied.....

All Our Teams Are Hero's
These "Boys Of Fall"
Only "One" team can be crowned the Champion
In our hearts "All our Teams are Champions"
Only "One" team can carry the Trophy
Super Bowl XLV and World Champions
Green Bay Packers










 A World Champ Season

Snow and Freezing Cold In Missouri

February 1, 2011
First major "blizzard" in 12 years here in Southern Missouri.  Sun is shining this morning after a snowy blowing day yesterday.  9 inches on the ground with 3 - 4 foot drifts, temp this morning 3 chilling degrees.



Snow Day Baking
Since I could not get out to work this is what I did to keep myself busy.  
My kitchen is nice and cozy after baking Apple Bars.  This recipe is so simple, I call them

So Simple Apple Bars
So Yummy
This is what you need.
  Package Pie Crust
Can Fried Apples
Cinnamon
Spread out the pie crust and roll a little larger to make it thinner
Cut up the apple slices and spread over crust
Sprinkle with cinnamon or apple pie spice
Roll other pie crust just a bit to fit, cover apples, 
crimp edges and cut slits on top for venting.  
Bake 350 until golden brown
When cool spread with a thin layer of 
canned frosting or make your own glaze.
Enjoy....So simple

Skid Steer is running
Looks like Mr. B has the skid steer running, 
plowing snow so I can get to work today, 1-8pm
Stay safe and warm, all my prim friends that are in the path of this latest winter storm


Prim Blessings
