These are called Aebkeskivers, or Danish Pancakes. They are fried in a special pan with 7 little indentions in it. You fry one side then turn them with a long wooden pick and fry the other side, then sprinkle with powdered sugar. They turned out very good but I think you need to be a real Danish grandmother for them to be right. Any way it was fun to learn.

Had a few hours at home on Wednesday so I made some cream puffs. They were too good, so when I got home today I ate one more and took the rest to a neighbor that has kids. They were too dangerous to have around. Yes, I could just make some more but I wont, at least not for a while.
Lois I gotta tell you how to fry frozen squash. Thaw it and drain in a colander. Lay it on a towel and gently blot with another towel. Then just fry like fresh with onions and peppers. It will turn out the same and is not soggy. As a matter of fact, I'm going to make some right now.Come on down for supper and I will share along with my eggplant parmesan and corn and bbq ribs. Might even make some cornbread. Sure would be nice to have another pair of feet under my table.

Sitting here enjoying a cup of vanilla coffee, cranberry bliss bar and listening to my new clock saying tick-tock. Greg said to tell everybody Merry Christmas from him and he is looking forward to being able to spend the holidays with everybody next year.

In Johnstown Ny waiting for 4:00pm, so I can pick up my next load. I was so hoping the trees would be bright with color so I could get some good pictures but most of the leaves have already fallen. Today is a blaaa grey day threatening to rain and 57 degrees. And I have a toothache that is giving me fits. It started Monday as I was leaving town so I just took meds but with no relief . Then this morning I had the idea that listerine may ease the pain some, it did ease the pain in my mouth but now my wallet is hurting, a little bottle cost me $6.00 and Aleve was $1.00 a pill at this truck stop where I am parked, ouchhh. I only bought 2 Aleve, hopefully I can find a Walmart when I leave here. My car has been sitting in Louisville for two weeks now and nobody could figure out what the problem was, and Ive had several people work on it but it still would not start. Sunday the man I bought the car from offered to pull it to his shop and use parts of another car that he had to get mine running. But the tow driver (his son) ask me what it was doing and I told him all the trouble I have had so far, he said he knew exactly what was wrong and it did not need towed to Radcliff. So, he followed me to Louisville ( I was in my truck) and in 5 minutes he had it started, problem solved. The computer was not reading the chip on the key, so he bypassed the chip reader and now it starts every time. WooHoo!!!! Praise the Lord and pass the mustard!!!!!!

Fresh Apple Cake with Lemon Sauce. Oh it made the house smell soooo good. Im taking it to Pastors house tomorrow for lunch. I made me a little one to taste knowing I would have a hard time not pinching off a bit.
Sarah I tried to coment on your sncikerdoodles on your page but it wouldnt accept it. Any way I said when Jonah discovered April could make snickerdoodles he married her straight away,(and because he loved her). They are his all time favorite cookie. They looked delicous, maybe we could all sample them at the Nov. campout?

I finally got my new truck mattress. They said it is the top of the line and supposed to make you sleep like a baby. Well.... wouldn't ya know, I had slept on that other piece of junk for so long that without the hole in the middle and having to curl around the springs poking up the middle... I had a horrible night. Just couldn't seem to find the right spot to get comfortable. Hoping tonight will be a different story.
