We had a small Halloween party with Rodney's family. My mother-in-law and I put it all together. One of the desserts I made was a dirt cake with worms (I doubled it) . It was so delicious! Here's the recipe (with my changes):
Dirt Cake with Worms
- 2 boxes of instant chocolate pudding mix
- 3 1/2 cups of milk (for thicker pudding use less milk)
- 2 tubs of Cool Whip (I used 1 big one)
- 1 package of oreos
- 1 package of gummy worms (one of the $1 ones at Wal-Mart will be plenty!)
Mix pudding with milk for 2 minutes (I made my pudding ahead of time and let it chill for about 2 hours)
Mix 1/3 of cool whip with pudding
Crush Oreos in food processor (or in a zipper baggie like I did)
Layer pudding, cool whip, and cookies. Add gummy worms on top to finish. I put about 5 gummy worms in each layer between the cool whip and the cookies for some extra wormies.

Yay! I love Fall. I'm really excited about Autumn coming and will probably start decorating soon. I have been looking at fall crafts and decorations. My first project will probably be a centerpiece for the table. I love this one from Better Homes & Gardens.

I love all things watermelon. I just think they are cute. I also think decorated cookies are cute. So, combining the two are double cuteness! I may invite some friends over for a bbq just so I can make these watermelon cookies from the decorated cookie.

So, Rodney LOVES Salisbury steaks. I am quiet fond of them myself. So, since we both liked them, I decided to make some for supper the other night, and I am so glad I did! They were so delicious. I found this recipe.
- 1 (10.5 ounce) can French onion soup
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
- 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder (I just used regular mustard)
- In a large bowl, mix together 1/3 cup French onion soup with ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, salt and black pepper. Shape into 6 oval patties.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown both sides of patties. Pour off excess fat.
- In a small bowl, blend flour and remaining soup until smooth. Mix in ketchup, water, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Pour over meat in skillet. Cover, and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Notes: Next time I will cook the meat in a cast iron skillet and when I pour the soup mixture over the meat, pop the skillet into the oven to cook.
It turned out excellent and the gravy it made was good over the mashed potatoes.

I haven't been posting much. To tell you the truth, I really haven't felt like it. But, 2009 is a new year, and I am feeling cheery and good. So, I will definitely start posting again. I have a lot of new things planned to make and bake and I'm really excited about it. This is going to be a good year.
