I realized that I have got to be more creative with my writing - 4 out of 5 of my posts have started with "So...." and that was exactly how I was going to start this one! I'm so predictable....its pathetic! :) One thing that's not predictable is that Justin and I are actually contemplating a road trip, so I'll keep you posted. I am very excited about the thought of getting away with my husband! He loves Washington, DC so I think we are going to head up there and then on to New York. I could go tomorrow!...can you tell there's not much to do in Roxboro?? We've only been here full time for a week and I'm already ready for a get away. I was spoiled getting to go to the "big city" of Wake Forest each week! Imagine that!! :)

My piano students had their recital today and I was so proud! Everything went surprisingly well. I made some goodies for the reception and I thought I would share the recipes since they're simple. Enjoy!

Cherry Jell-o Apples

I learned about this from a lady at work. It's so simple and great for snacks, especially for kids.

Just slice some apples, place in a ziploc bag or container and shake with some (dry) cherry jello. (Just enough to lightly coat the apples). They're messy, but surprisingly good.

Pepperoni Pinwheels

This is another easy appetizer or snack!

1 (8oz.) can of crescent dinner rolls
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (3.5 oz) pkg. sliced pepperoni
1 c. pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce

Heat oven to 350. Separate dough into 4 rectangles; firmly press perforations to seal. Place 8 pepperoni slices on each rectangle. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese. Starting at shortest side, tightly roll up each rectangle; pinch to seal. Slice each roll into 4 equal slices. Pinch dough together on one side of each slice to seal. Place sealed side down on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Serve with warm pizza sauce if desired. Makes 16 pinwheels. (I've never used pizza sauce - they're good enough by themselves!)

I hope you enjoy these recipes....let me know if you like them! Now that I've got time to actually cook dinner I hope to share some more recipes. Stayed tuned!

So...I'm super excited that I can now post on your blog. Blogs are fun because the word "blog" becomes part of your daily vocabulary. For instance, you'll be in a situation that is really funny (like the waitress) and think to yourself..."oh! that's a blogger!"

life is beautiful
