Paula Deen's Potato and Ham Soap

I found this recipe online and made it with some leftover ham from Christmas, it was quick, easy and the whole family loved.

2 cups of ham cut into small pieces
5 lbs of baking potatoes peeled and diced
1/2 stick of butter
salt and pepper
1 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup sour cream

Put your potatoes in a large pot and add just enough water to cover them. Cover the pot and bring to a boil, then uncover and cook on med-high 20 minutes. Reduce heat and add ham and the butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Over low heat add the sour cream and half-and-half; keep warm over low heat till serving time.

I served mine with some warm bread and a veggie.

The elves are busy

The elves have been busy around here lately as well as the rest of America. I wanted to do a small "gift" for my son's preschool class, and I remembered one that was in a Martha Stewart Mag.

But 3 and 4 year olds just don't need a whole candy bar, so I used the hersery snack size candy bars not to be confused with the minuture herserys bars. Not that is what happened at our house.

Now am off to make 18 more for my daughters class and peppermint popcorn for the school party.

I also love this idea for a little neighbor gift from Nanny Goat , who also has the tags to download for free. Who can't use any extra roll around the holidays.
