Holiday Almost Here!!

We are excited here as a family.  Joshua our son is coming home on leave.  This will be the last chance home before he is deploded to the water off the Persian Gulf.  He is USCG.

I want to cook all his favorite meals crammed into 2 days – hey.

Grand Daughter Caitlin has her b-day on Friday and turns the big 10!

Feasts and foods fun and love.

Here are some foods:

Baked Ziti

1 pound Ziti pasta cooked according to package directions and set a side

1 lrg jar favorite tomato sauce

1 cup grated parmeasan cheese

1 pound container rocotta cheese

Mix all ingredients together and spread into 13×9 pans. Top with mozzells and parmeasan cheese.  Bake in 350 oven for 20 – 30 minutes untill golden and bubbly.

Shreeded carrots, sliced sweet bell pepper, cucumber slices, grape tomatoes, shredded red cabbage

canned pineapple chuncks, sliced peaches, sliced pears

croutons, shredded cheeses, seedless grapes, sunflower seeds raisins, and a chunk cheese platter

Caitlin’s Birthday meal is Baked Chicken with all the Thanksgiving trimmings.

Happy Holidays to all!!  Be Safe and Enjoy – Remember those without – add a canned good to your local food drive or volunteer at the soup kitchen.
