Quick and Convenient Summer Lunch

We all  loved it! I had to modify the recipe slightly, due to not being able to find Golden Wheat Pillsbury Grand Biscuits. I used Southern Style instead. Awesome Choice!

I bake a package of reduced fat Golden Wheat Pillsbury Grands on an ungreased tray in the oven. If you have another favorite hamburger roll or sandwich roll, it will work also, and you can skip this first step. When these Grands are baked and cooled, I cut each one in half and fill with the ingredients below;

The recipe is for eight sandwiches; 8 sandwich rolls, 1 1/2 lbs. thinly sliced deli ham, 1 1/2 cups of Kraft cheddar and monterey jack cheese cubes, and layer on the bottom half of the roll. In a bowl add 1/3 cup of mayo, 1/3 cup of honey mustard or brown mustard(whatever your choice), 1/3 cup of sweet pickle relish, 1/2 small onion, finely chopped and stir together. Spoon this mixture on the top half of the roll, and close the sandwich.

Wrap each sandwich individually in Reynold's foil wrap. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Serve immediately, or let cool and freeze the sandwiches. Whenever needed take one out of the freezer, remove foil, microwave for a few seconds, and it's ready to eat. If I have these in the freezer, my husband often grabs one and takes it along to work, for his lunch. Really, these sandwiches are quick, easy and delicious!

Boat Ride Around Seneca Lake!

I love cruising around Seneca Lake looking at all the homes and campsites. It's so relaxing, enjoying the calmness of the no wake zones! This time of year out- of -towner's: Usually Akronites or Clevelandites invade our quiet little corner of the world, hoping to find the peace and quiet of country living we enjoy year round!

Below: Another A-Frame...I'm so envious!

Below: One of the most beautiful on the lake. This picture doesn't do it justice. It has to be my favorite!

What a way to spend the day! Perfect view of the lake!

Ohio Hills Weavers & Spinners Guild

I stopped by the Ohio Hills Weavers & Spinners Guild last week. It is amazing watching them spin sheep's wool into yarn. Some of them shear their own sheep, wash, then dye the wool prior to spinning it. The Guild meets once a month in Lore City. They welcome anyone interested in learning to spin, crochet, or knitting. Bring a covered dish...Be prepared to eat, talk, and spin!

For the past few months I have been getting my hopes up then getting them let down!
This has kept my head spinning...Trying to make decisions that will impact the rest of my life.
I hope this indecision will be over soon and I know what the future holds.

A New Arrival

Trevor and Emily welcomed Madilyn 8 weeks ago. Trevor is stationed with the Air Force in Nebraska. A long way from home and their family. Trevor's mom is my cousin Denise. We grew up together, and spent a lot of time together, since we were only 3 months apart in age. The sign was handmade by Trevor's cousin's wife, Andrea! Isn't she creative! Love it!

The proud parent's with Madilyn

A quilt Trevor's Aunt Teresa made for them. It was absolutely beautiful in person!

A Visit to Farmer's Market!

The rain finally stopped here in Southeast Ohio... So off I headed after work to check out the local Farmer's Market. If any of you get to downtown Cambridge on Friday's, stop by and check it out for yourself. Well worth it!

Aren't these potted plants beautiful? Only 25.00, What a Steal!
Hoping to get one next week!

I finally got a chance to meet Renee ~ I've been on the same chat site GLU since the Gooseberry Patch Chat Line Days~ She's as sweet as she looks and Buckeye Grove Cheese is to die for. If any of you get a chance, stop by her booth and pick up some...You'll love it!

Picked up another hanging basket..I chose the yellow petunia. It's now found a home hanging off the telephone pole behind my mailbox. I would like to add that I love how they look, but the smell they left in my car was awful! Who Knew?

Joe ~ with a purple clover plant~ I've never seen one and it's beautiful!

This girl had the cutest little pies and cookies...Again, next week I plan to try these!
