I’ve noticed cute ruffle top boot socks popping up in several Boutiques I frequent. They are just so easy to make that I couldn’t see spending $25-$30 for a pair.
At my daughter’s school each class has a parent volunteer that comes in once a month and does a 4-H craft project with the kids. This year that parent is me and it has been so much fun. Our first project was a turtle. I wanted something simple since I wasn’t sure exactly how much the kids could do (Kindergarten). I cut out all the feet and heads ahead of time and spray painted the paper plates. I forgot to cut out tails and the kids made sure to let me know that I forgot a body part!
In the class all they had to do was glue on the feet/heads and coat the top in a thick layer of glue then dunk in the peas. Putting the peas in a shallow box works well, all they have to do is place the turtle in it and the peas will stick (definitely their favorite part!). Next month we’re trying something a bit more challenging…..marble painting!
Below are a few game day recipes that are always a hit with our bunch. Wings similar to Hooters, Creamy Rotel Dip, Mississippi Sin Dip and Basic Chili/Velveeta Dip.
The Wings recipe I use came from here. I used Franks Buffalo for ours, but if you like a bit of spice try to find the Hot Buffalo (The Franks bottles say “Redhot” but the flavor and intensity is actually listed along the bottom, you’ll have Buffalo or Buffalo Hot). I usually make 60 of these. That seems to be plenty for a group of 8-10 to snack on for several hours.
Mix the Sauce and Butter in a pot on low heat until melted. Keep it blended and melted to use after the wings cook.
Mix Flour, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Cayenne, Salt and Pepper together. Coat your wings once, then refrigerate for an hour (this is the magic step, don’t skip it!). Pull out and coat again in the flour mixture. Cook them in oil, making sure it’s deep enough to cover them completely, 8-10 wings at a time. Medium heat or around 375. 13-15 minutes turning once. Pull out drain for a few seconds then dunk them in the sauce mixture, remove and place on a tray for serving.
1. Creamy Rotel Dip (Like the classic but better!)
I’m not sure where I found these recipes so if you know the source please send it to me so I can credit them!
Mix everything together over medium-low heat. Once it’s melted keep it on warm or low. Serve with mini chip bowls, yummy.
2. Mississippi Sin Dip

My camera came with a neck strap but I prefer the wrist straps for compact cameras. Below is a quick tutorial on how to change your neck strap into a wrist strap.
