Best Cabbage Recipe for the New Year, or anytime! EVER!

Since cabbage is supposed to bring you luck in the new year. I thought I would share my uncle's cabbage recipe.  This is the only cabbage I'll eat, besides coleslaw.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we all do.

What you'll need:
1 large head of chopped cabbage
4 chopped carrots (I don't like cooked carrots, so I use less)
3 large onions chopped
2 large green peppers chopped
1 hot pepper chopped
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 stick of butter
3-4 cups water

Place all ingredients in a large skillet on medium heat until cabbage is tender.  Enjoy!

Good Luck in the New Year!  We'll see you tomorrow for Silent Saturday.

Family Friendly Ways to Ring in the New Year

Since we had our kids, we haven't had an "adult" New Years Eve.  So I decided I would gather a list of ideas for all you for some kid friendly ideas for ringing in the New Years.  


My first suggestion is to check your city.  Many cities have a website with several activities specifically designed for kids.  They are located throughout the city with all ideas designed for specifically for kids.


Many towns with Hockey teams both professional and minor league have games on New Years Eve.  After the game they have open skate and sometimes fireworks.  This is such a fun activity for the kids.  We went one year, and had a blast!  Check the Internet for home games.


I found a website that has family friendly destinations for New Years.  It might be a little late this year, but maybe for next year.


Hosting a family game night is a fun way to spend quality time ringing in the New Year, or close to it.  This way you are home if you have little ones, you can put them down at bedtime.  When I think of game night, I think of board games.  There are the classics like Monopoly and Chutes and Ladders and some new games like Apples to Apples and Argue.  When Steve thinks of games, he thinks of Wii and Xbox.  Some really cool games out for Wii that we love are Dance, Dance Revolution and Just Dance Kids.  Da Freakout played this for an hour the other day.  


Throwing a party that is specially designed for you and your family, is a fun and cute way to ring in the New Year.  


Make t-shirts that read 2011, it's as simple as a puff paint and a t-shirt or you can get fancier with fabric and some heat and bond. 


Make noise shakers using a plastic bottle, some beans, rice or beads.


Make party hats out of paper, and craft supplies you have laying around. 


Make a resolution Magnet  with you kids.  Let them draw a picture of what they want to do for the New Years, then put a magnet on it and put it on the refrigerator as a reminder.  (That might be a good idea for us too *smile*)


Make a funfetti cake with sprinkles on the outside and maybe a cheap decoration from the dollar store.





Make a meal with all of your favorite food, or appetizers, (especially if you plan on watching what you eat in the New Year)  
Give your meal a special name.  The Famous Tucker Family New Year's Chili.  The Watson's Wonderful New Years Wachetti.


If you don't have fireworks for ringing in the New Year, or if it's illegal in your state, use sparklers.  Kids love them, even if you are the one that holds it. 


Be sure to have Sparkling Apple Cider on hand for the little ones and something yummy for you.   I found this adorable recipe on familyfun.go.com, it's so cute!



Grab a spoon and toast the New Year with a cool, sparkly dessert that wiggles.
1. Make bubbly Jell-O according to the directions on a box of Sparkling White Grape Jell-O. Be sure to use club soda, seltzer, or ginger ale and follow the tips on the box for getting the gelatin to sparkle.
2. Chill the Jell-O in champagne flutes or parfait glasses. We suggest making these the day of the party, since they might lose some bubbliness if they're made further ahead. Wind a metallic multicolored star garland (available at party stores) up the stem of the glass for pizzazz.



or this fun punch



  • 3 1/2 liters ginger ale
  • 2 quarts orange juice
  • 2 oranges, sliced into rounds
  • 20 maraschino cherries


Directions

  1. In a large punch bowl mix ginger ale and orange juice. Place sliced oranges on top of punch and arrange the cherries on top of the orange slices.

For the Adults, this is my Thirsty Thursday Recipe

What you'll need

  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate                            
  • 12 ounces champagne
  • 8 ounces Sauza® Blanco Tequila
  • 4 ounces DeKuyper® Strawberry Liqueur
  • 12 ounces water

Directions

  1. Pour limeade into pitcher with ice. Fill limeade can with champagne and pour into pitcher. Then fill limeade can with 2/3 Sauza Blanco Tequila and 1/3 DeKuyper Strawberry and pour in. Lastly, add a can of water, stir and serve over ice. Makes 9 delicious drinks, perfect for any ladies night in.
  2. Looking for a lighter option? Swap soda water for the champagne and 2 cups of sliced strawberries for the Strawberry Liqueur.

I hope you all have a very safe New Years Eve.  Come back tomorrow for a cabbage recipe!

Love, BJ

New Years Resolutions

I personally have several resolutions this year, more so than usual.  Usually I have one resolution, and usually it has to do with weight.


This year I have several resolutions.  I decided I'm turning over a new leaf, and I'm going all out!  The sky's the limit.


My first resolution is to work smarter, not harder on this blog.  I want it to be amazing.  I really want it to reflect me.  I want to make it look amazing and to be the blog everyone wants to visit. 


Of course I want to lose weight, but that's not what I'm going to focus on.  I want to show my family that eating healthy all the time can be delicious.  A lot less carbs, a lot more vegetables.


I'm hoping to start training for a half marathon.  I know I can run a 5K and 10K, I'm just hoping and praying that I can do 13.1 miles.  Physically I don't think I'll have a problem, mentally, I hope I can get past the block.  If anyone has any advice on that I'm all ears.


I want to focus more on spending quality time with my kids.  Yes I'm a stay-at-home mom and see them 24-7, but between cooking, cleaning and running errands, I feel like I don't sit down and enjoy them like I should so I'm going to try harder.  They are only little once, and that time is short.


I want to be more organized this year.  I'm probably going to make some more lists to do so, as if I don't have enough.  I'm going to attempt to get rid of things I haven't used in years.  I've read that if you haven't used something in 12 months, get rid of it, you're not going to.  I find this hard to do.  I like to hold on to things because they mean something to me.  But when I think about it, if it means something, it would be out and used, not put away in the basement.


My final resolution is to stay calm and happy.  I don't want to yell or raise my voice.  I want peace in my house.  I also know that I create my own happiness.  Once I'm happy with myself, it will shine upon the rest of my family.


This all sounds like a lot now that I have it written out, but I know with the support of my family and all of my friends, new and old, I can do this.  I am here for you too, if you need me.


Dream big and have a great day!  Tomorrow is Thirsty Thursday!


Love, BJ

New Years traditions/superstitions

Growing up there were certain traditions I was taught about for New Years.  Traditions like all others are very important to teach my children, and these are no different.  Some of these I do because I was taught to, but I've never known why we do these things.


We always had Reuben sandwiches for lunch on New Years day with sauerkraut, then pork chops and cabbage for dinner.  I wasn't sure until recently why we ate the pork and not other foods.  Cabbage has something to do with wealth.  When we moved down south, they taught me that we had to eat black eyed peas for luck, of course I'm willing to try it, if they do it, and have reasoning behind it.


My family always burns a bayberry candle from before midnight through the night.  I know that doesn't sound really safe, but it's put in the middle of the bath tub with the curtain pulled back.  I didn't learn until the other day the significance to this.  I'm not sure if this is an Italian custom or where it originated.  I read some Italians do this, where others have never heard of it.  Maybe it varies by region.  I do know, it can't be any other scent, it is specifically bayberry.


I always clean real good before New Years.  I shred all old papers that I no longer need, I like them out of the house.  I also clean out the closets, drawers and toys to donate to Goodwill or other charities.  I clean every nook and cranny that I can get to, kind of like spring cleaning.  I can't remember if my mom did this, or if I just created this one on my own.  My philosophy is that a clean house into the new year, will lead to a clean house throughout the year.  I don't know that it actually works, but it makes me feel better.


The last tradition I follow is putting money outside on New Years Eve until the New Year.  It is to be placed somewhere where others won't find it. I have an envelope for each of us with a penny, nickle, dime, and quarter in them.  I put them in a Ziploc bag, and put it outside.  This is supposed to bring wealth.


I'm really not superstitious, but I'm willing to try just about anything for health, wealth, luck and prosperity.  While working on this I decided to research what everything actually means and where it came from.  There are actually a few new ones I read about and would like to try.  I'm not saying any of this works, but I'm not willing to find out otherwise.


Here is a link for the bayberry candles, they can be found around this time of year, but they aren't that easy to find.  This place tells the story about them, and sells them.


Here is a link that gives all types of explanations for the different foods, and why they are eaten for New Years in different countries.


Lastly this site has New Years superstitions from all over the world.  This is where I found a couple new ones that I'm going to try.


I hope you all have a wonderful day and an amazing New Years.  We'll see you back here tomorrow.


Love, BJ

No assembly required




Dear friends and neighbors; I am sad to say that for the first time in four years I have experienced a tool-less Christmas. It is hard to believe that I have failed as daddy-claus. I realized in horror just moments ago I endured this Christmas season without turning a single screw on a single mind numbing toy assembly.  I have enjoyed many nights before Christmas, building toys. I find it much more gratifying to play the role of Santa than I would have ever imagined. The enthusiasm of my little boy at 5:30 am on Christmas morning is infectious.

Sadly this Christmas there were no 8,000 piece Home Depot tool kits, or the 60,000 piece Handy Manny Workshop, and not even a million and a half piece kitchen set. It was a very silent night this Christmas Eve. No sounds of ratchets ratcheting, screwdrivers screwing or hammers hammering broke the silence.  I thought it was going to be a miserable Christmas for my son; I lost sleep thinking about how bad of a dad I am. I was pleasantly surprised when I witnessed my son having the time of his life opening presents that had no assembly required.

Technology has taken the place of play things for the most part. Of course there were some Nerf guns, and toy rifles thrown into the mix along with some classic board games. I can’t help but look back on all of the great Christmas Days I spent with my family; getting the chance to relive those days vicariously through my son is the greatest gift anyone could ever give me. It is a gift that cannot be packaged, marketed, or sold.

Christmas game
You'll need to get enough gifts for everyone that plays. Wrap each gift, the dollar store has great gifts for this game, or you can get what you choose.  

INTRUCTIONS: GET IN A CIRCLE, PASS GIFT PACKAGES RIGHT OR LEFT AS CUE WORDS ARE READ 
Many years ago high on a mountain, there lived a family named WRIGHT. They had many cousins whose names were also WRIGHT. Every Christmas the clan gathered to have a party and no one was LEFT out. Sally WRIGHT was in charge of the guest list and she LEFT nothing to chance. This party was planned and things had to be just RIGHT. Mary WRIGHT had LEFT home early to do her shopping, but LEFT her gift list at home. Now this created a problem RIGHT from the start for her. John WRIGHT had gone to cut a tree for the big affair. It had to be the RIGHT size to stand on the LEFT side of the
fire place.

The decorations were ready and waiting. Mother WRIGHT was in charge of the kitchen and everyone had to bring the RIGHT food to fit the menu and no one LEFT home without their share. There were children by the score who played RIGHT in the middle of the floor and LEFT toys everywhere. Now it wouldn't really be festive if they had no Santa Clause, so Charles WRIGHT had his wife Jeannie WRIGHT make him a Santa suit. She put two pockets on the RIGHT side and one on the LEFT. But Jake WRIGHT felt LEFT out because he said he had a RIGHT to be Santa because he had been LEFT out for five years. Mother WRIGHT had to settle the argument RIGHT then and there before she LEFT for the kitchen. Charles and Jake both got mad and LEFT in a huff. But just then Uncle Ben WRIGHT walked RIGHT through the door and said he had a suit LEFT over from last year that would be all RIGHT. So that was settled and LEFT everyone feeling just fine except Charles and Jake, but they soon realized the Christmas spirit should prevail, so they marched RIGHT back into the house.

Tommy WRIGHT, of the RIGHT side of the mountain, LEFT his snow shoes at home so he was late reaching the party at the RIGHT time, but he was still able to help wrap the gifts which were placed on the RIGHT side of the fireplace and on the LEFT side of the tree. He also hung holly on the RIGHT side and every WRIGHT in the county was RIGHT on time, dressed in their Sunday best. No stone was LEFT unturned to make this a happy time. The turkey was baked just RIGHT and LEFT everyone gasping with delight. The dressing and trimmings were also just RIGHT, because Mother WRIGHT saw to that.

There was a pile of toys RIGHT by the door because Mother WRIGHT said there was no room LEFT under the tree. They gathered round the table, each woman had a man on her RIGHT and also on her LEFT. They laughed RIGHT loudly as they ate their dinner and as they LEFT the table everyone cried "I ate too much!" Then came Santa RIGHT on time to deliver the gifts to each WRIGHT. He LEFT each one laughing, even Grandpa WRIGHT, who usually LEFT early and said good-night. The children LEFT the room RIGHT after opening the last toy. Their hearts were full of Christmas Joy. Mother WRIGHT knew the party was a success and LEFT for the kitchen RIGHT after the last carol was sung. Every WRIGHT on the mountain LEFT the party so happy and gay. Once more they had celebrated Christmas with the RIGHT kind of love in their hearts and LEFT each WRIGHT family shaking warm hands on their RIGHT and LEFT, saying Merry Christmas to each and everyone.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and enjoy the hours to come.  Have a Very Merry Christmas, and we'll see you tomorrow for silent Saturday!

Love, BJ

Cookies and a Shot!

Today I'm going to share 2 cookie recipes.  One is from my mother-in-law, and the other is my Nunny's recipe.

Haystack Cookies

What you'll need
6oz pkg butterscotch chip (you can use chocolate or any variation, but butterscotch are yummy)
1/4 cup chunky peanut butter
2 cups mini marshmallow
3 oz can chow mein noodles (I got a bag and measured out 3oz)

Melt chips in double boiler
If you've never done this, it's really easy once you learn that 
1. let the water boil
2. put the chips in top part and turn off the heat
3. it will melt without the burner being on, if you leave the burner on, it will over cook the chips

Mix in peanut butter, then remove from stove

Mix in marshmallows and noodles
Spoon onto wax paper to harden

If you don't like marshmallow or you have someone allergic to peanut butter, simply don't add those.
Melt the chips, remove from heat and add the chow mein noodles.  It can't get much simpler than that.
Oh, and my mother-in-law melts her chips in the microwave, if you don't have a double broiler.
Enjoy!!!

My Nunny's Galette Cookie

What you'll need:
8 eggs
4 sticks butter melted
6 cup flour
2 cup white sugar
2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Galette iron

Beat Eggs in bowl separately
Cream butter, sugar, add eggs
Vanilla then flour

I use a cookie scooper to add the dough to the iron, it puts just the right amount on it
Heat on 45 seconds on both sides on medium heat.  My knob is pointed straight up and down when I have the perfect heat.

 The cookies should be a pretty golden brown
The left is perfect, the one on the right is burnt
We love these cookies at Christmas.  They may not be for everyone, but they are good!

This recipe makes a lot of cookies!



I couldn't resist a picture of my little helpers!

This is the second outfit!

Now for a shot, since we are all going to need one this week! 

Strawberry Kiss
1/3 oz. Kahlua
1/3 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream
1/3 oz. Strawberry Liqueur

Enjoy!  Love, BJ

These are a few of my favorite things! Traditions

There are so many things I love about Christmas.  I love the smell of pine, fresh cut trees and garland.  I am allergic to real trees, but I still love the smell.

I love listening to Christmas music from the moment it comes on the radio until it's no longer played, I listen to it.

I can't go without watching some Christmas classics like The Christmas Story, National Lampoon's Christmas vacation, Charlie Brown's Christmas, Rudolph, Frosty, The Santa Clause and Prep and Landing, it is so tinsel!!!












Decorating the inside and outside of the house, new Christmas pj's, and reading books like these

I laugh hysterically at this one!

Making Christmas cookies, well cookies for Christmas like the ones I'm posting on tomorrow's blog. Eating candy canes and enjoying a White Christmas are all traditions I want to pass along to my boys, though I can't control the weather.

Our Christmas Eve dinner is something I can't live without.  We have seafood on Christmas Eve.  In Italian families, there is the Feast of the 7 fishes, which you can read about  here.  We don't go by the 7 exact fishes, but we try our best to pass this tradition on.

I have saved the most important parts of Christmas until last.  The things that I want to most instill into my children.  The reason we celebrate Christmas, Christ our Savior's birth.  If it weren't for him, we wouldn't have a reason to celebrate.

Being with family, we may not be able to be home with our parents, but we are parents now, so showing our children how important it is to be with family on a holiday and making our own traditions give them a foundation.

Teaching my children the importance of giving over receiving is a big part of the Christmas season.  Letting them know that you are making others happy, which gives you a good feeling inside, and being able to see the joy on others' faces is worth the money you spend on the gift.

The last thing that I love, love, love is seeing the joy on my little boys faces on Christmas morning.   When they see the gifts under the tree.  The awe when the lights are lit, they get to the bottom of the steps, turn the corner and see the presents is AWE-MAZING!  Last year I was so excited, I woke up Da Freakout and let him know Santa had come.  I couldn't help myself!  His face was priceless, and I look forward to it every year now.   I don't care if there is one gift under the tree for myself, just as long as my babies are happy, though I do love Steve's face too!

I hope everyone is ready, or almost ready for this weekend, it's going to be here before we know it, and then it will be gone.  Slow down, take a breath and enjoy the days to come.  Our little ones will only be small for a short time, enjoy them while you can.

Happy Wednesday and we'll see you back tomorrow for a yummy cookie recipe, or two.

Love, BJ

Stocking Stuffer ideas

I've never been real big on lots of candy for stockings or baskets, so I have to think real hard for cute stocking stuffers.  So if  you're looking for some last minute stocking stuffers here are a few ideas.  Santa always brings toothbrushes, toothpaste, bodywash, deodorant, dental floss and shampoo.  Then he gets a little creative and tries to think of things that they love.  For Steve and dad, they get stuff for their trucks and golf.

Air fresheners from Bath and Body works are what I'm liking right now, they come in a variety of colors and scents.

Tees, brushes, ball markers and tire gauges are great ideas, things they can never have too many of.  I also like getting $30 worth of iTune cards and splitting them up.  Everyone gets to pick their own music and I don't have to listen to everyone else's.

The boys get a few things from the dollar section at Target, like a notebook and an airplane spoon.
New sippy cups are always a great idea.  They get chewed on and get nasty quick so these are a must!  I'm lovin the Tommy Tippee for Baby Diesel and a design your own for Da Freakout.
Small little boyish crafts are a great idea for my little man.  I found window suncatchers at Hobby Lobby and Michael's.  He loves to make them not only for our windows, but also for his grandmas.


Another fun idea are beads and bracelets.  I found cute sports bead and silkies from Hobby Lobby.

Silly bandz are another big idea for our little ones.  They can be kept on one of these silkies necklaces or even a binder clip.

Special candy is the only candy I'm putting in them this year.  I found vampire fangs and mustaches made from wax.  I know as a kid I loved them!  Candy necklaces and some kind of gum.

Sunflower seeds and nuts for my big boys.

I love pens, really, really love pens, so I always try to find a fun pen for everyone, one with google eyes or something crazy or kid-like.

A lottery ticket or two or maybe a homemade coupon or two for that  special man or men in your life.  I know my little one would love a coupon for a date with mommy to the movies or out to eat.

My thought on filling a stocking is fill it with things they don't get all year long.  Make it fun and enjoyable, with things they'll love and to show them you loved doing it.

Have a great day, and happy stuffing!  Love, BJ

The Legend of the Fugarwee- Manday Monday

Fugarwee, a valuable lesson about life learned early in childhood, never, never ask my dad where he is going.   I asked one time and one time only,
Me-where are you going?
Dad- Hunting.
Me- Where?
Dad- Camp.
Me- Where's camp?
Of course I don't get  the answer, or even nun ya, I get this!

The Legend of the Fugarwee
West Virginia's First Indian Tribe

As legend would have it, many moons ago in ancient Siberia, during the age of much ice, a group of nomads became disenchanted with the cold inclement weather and thus began a very long  and treacherous journey to try to find a happier hunting ground.  This trek through the frozen tundra of what is now know as Alaska, was led by the nomad's brave, wise, well endowed and now famous chief, Ibigarod.  The nomads traveled for many years and suffered a great deal of hardship, but Ibigarod, being a very tenacious individual, pushed his followers on.

Over the years, after enduring the cold of winter, the scorching heat of summer and hiking through the countryside with bears, snakes and frogs that bite, even the most stalwart became weary.  After an especially long and arduous day of climbing mountains and fording an extremely dangerous stream that was known as  the river of the Elk, one of Ibigarod's followers, not knowing where he was, yelled at the top of his lungs in total disgust, "Just where the Fugarwee?"  Ibigarod, after much thought, replied, "Havnaclue!" (which is Fugarwee for you're in the almost happy hunting ground, baby!)

In the Fugarwee's honor, our hunting club has been named.  Our cabin stands on the very spot that Ibigarod gave his now famous reply.

The name of the famous dog sled race held in Alaska annually to honor Ibigarod, changed it's name for obvious reasons.

Why couldn't I get a normal answer?  This is still the type of answer I get when I ask him questions.  I'll give him he's creative, I guess that's where I get it from, well some of it.  I hope you enjoyed the story and the mad mind of dad.

Have a great day, and we'll see you tomorrow! Bobbi Jo and Bob (my dad)

Will it Happen to you?

You know you're getting old when....


1. When you exercise and body parts hurt that never used to.
2. When you wake up and body parts hurt, but you don't know why.
3. The clothes you wore in middle school that you loved, then hated, are now cool again.
4. You wake up with a hangover after drinking 1 glass of wine the night before.
5. Your kids want to stay up longer at night than you do.
6. Your kid's teachers call you ma'am.
7.  You walk into a room but forgot what you went in for.
8. You use a phone book to find a number instead of using the Internet.
9. When someone's talking to you and has to repeat themselves three times. huh? huh?
10. Someone said they just tweeted and you say, you might want to change your underwear.
11. The music you used to club to is now on the Classic Station.
12. You have no idea what the heck the songs are talking about. Example:
            
               Poppin bottles in the ice, like a blizzard
              When we drink we do it right gettin slizzard
              Sippin sizzurp in my ride, like Three 6
              Now I’m feelin so fly like a G6
Like a G6, Like a G6
Now I’m feelin so fly like a G6






13. Your kids know the words to the songs that you are clueless to.


With my birthday a day away, I thought how most of us can relate to this.  My Nunny always said, "honey, old age is ugly."  Not that I'm old, but I'm starting to see what she meant.  There are days my kids make feel like a kid again, and other days, I feel decrepit.  


Have a Happy Friday!  Love, BJ
