At Country Night the host was showing us her pictures on Smilebox. It is so much fun and so much easier than the traditional way of scrap booking:)

Giving Thanks-Wednesday

Giving Thanks

This is about the easiest side dish you will ever make! And your crew will love it! I can't take credit for it though it came from my SIL's MIL.

1-can shoepeg corn(found next to mexicali corn in can veggie isle)
1-8oz cream cheese(lite or reg)
1-can diced green chilies
Put in crock pot a couple of hours before serving to bubbling, stirring often.
It can be doubled or tripled very easily. I usually triple it for Thanksgiving for a group of 15-20. Also makes a great potluck dish.

Warm in a casserole dish and top with bread crumbs, for a crunchy topping.

Kelli over at There is No Place Like Home is hosting Giving Thanks!

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him,
and bless his name.
For the Lord is good;
his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations
~Psalm 100:4-5

We will be working on Shrinkydink Place cards for Thanksgiving. I will post pictures tomorrow.

Cleaning Before and After Pictures

This week I'll be working on cleaning my kitchen for the big day. Today I am focusing my attention on the fridge and the surrounding cupboards. I will be posting the after pictures at the end of the cleaning.

I cleaned the fridge inside and on top, and hung this homemade curtain in front of the open cabinet next to the fridge.
