Fair fun and ribbons

It’s the time of the year where the crispness of the night is welcomed like an old friend and the bright lights are on display. It is Fair time!

When I was child going to the fair was all about the games, rides and food. I never thought about the pageant or where all the crafts and canning came from or how it got to into the fair. But the last couple of years have been different for my family and myself. We have had the joy of joining a little group called EHC( extension homemakers club) and where we found out how the arts, crafts, and canning gets to the fair.  This has been a great thing. These ladies (mostly) work tireless to help put together the arts, crafts, and canning part of the fair. This group is a great for the whole family. Most counties in Arkansas have one so you should check it out. It is a great place to learn great skills and to craft as well.

Here is our fair fun and entries:

Until we next meet,
A

Pizza Pasta Casserole

This week I hit a point where I had not clue what to cook for supper. (For people not from the South this is what might be called dinner or evening meal.) Stuck in grocery store trying to figure out something, I had the bright idea to call Hubby and have him check out my Pinterest board to try something new. Never again will I make this mistake! It took five phone calls and three texts later to get one which was Pizza Casserole. (Click the link!)

Most meals cooked here has to do double duty by becoming lunch the next day to help us save some extra change for a family vacation. This means doubling most recipes which can be tricky especially when I forget how much I am buying. This happened to me this time. After about an hour walking around the store trying to find a signal to makes the calls and waiting on the texts, I was just about at my wits end.  When the text with the list arrived, quick as I could the ingredients were snatched up and off to home. Only when everything was laid out did I find there was not enough of some ingredients but there was no way I was going back to the store. So make sure you have the correct amount.

Sometimes you just want something yummy and new. 

I did take some liberties with the recipe. Garlic and onion are a favorite in our family. Well, garlic is but Glitter Bug doesn’t really care for onions however, any chance available I slip things in she doesn’t like to expand her tastes such as onions and mushrooms.

Did you click the recipe?  Good,that is where you can get how to make the Pizza Casserole.  Mine doesn’t look anything like the original however, if the way it disappeared is any indication this will be something I will be cooking again. Some of the things I will be changing are adding a little more cheese to help bind it together since I made a double batch. Maybe add some green olives and fresh mushrooms. 
Final product. 

What have you tried lately?

My little Camera Buddies

I have received product and/or monies for the review. The opinions express are my own.  



Last week I posted about Odor Check and the wonders they have done for my Hubby’s boots.  I wanted to share another great use I have found for them. 
They have become my little camera buddies. It has been a wet summer here until these last few weeks. I have worried about my camera getting moisture inside of it since I take it any time I leave the house. And then I remember the Odor Check was a moisture wicker.

Minus the Camera since I am using it. 

Now, I don’t have to worry about moisture in my camera or camera bag. As you can see there are two in my bag which works out great for the camera and the lens. I have no worries about grabbing my bag when it is a little damp outside.
