French's Green Bean Casserole
Thaw 2 9 oz. pkgs frozen green beans, Stir in 3/4 cup milk, 1 can mushroom soup and 3/4 cup of fried onions. Bake at 350, in a greased
1 1/2 qt. dish until bubbly. Top with remaining onions, bake 5 minutes more, until golden.
Everyone loves it! It was all gone!
You can also make it with brocolli and try different cream soups.
I got to take home the turkey carcass and had a couple meals off of it, and I made turkey noodle soup! Can you believe that some people throw away the turkey after they've carved the Thanksgiving Day platter-full?

But it turned out to be a real blessing! The technician and I got talking and he invited me to his church. The preacher is an old friend from the camp where I worked as a teenager. I saw him on a placemat at the local diner! I knew I wanted to visit, but being new to the neighborhood, I needed that little nudge, so I went and I loved it! The preaching was great, and the music wonderful! So, now I've found a new church where I feel right at home! God works in mysterious ways. So don't hesitate to share and invite, because a newcomer may need that warm welcome.
Oh, and the heater wasn't broken, I had left a circuit breaker off! I felt pretty silly! But I was so relieved that I didn't have a big problem with the heater!
First, I thoroughly cleaned it to remove dirt, dust and grime. After it was dry, I lightly sanded it and scraped any loose paint. I brushed Kilz's II primer on a couple bare spots.
Bare spots had to be primed- I used Kilz II
Painted - Unpainted
I continued brushing two light coats, so there would be no runs, of Behr Flat Enamel. I painted the sides, bottoms, and insides of all the drawers and shelves, in case I use it for a display piece in a shop some day, with the drawers hanging out open. I kept it original, left the back as it was, bright red. That's how most of the ones I saw were, when I went antiquing in the south.
These same repainted kitchen cupboards were selling for $179- $185 in antiques shops in North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland.
Here are three similar cabinets, I saw on my recent trip.
Displaying vintage wares and antiques.
and here's one in another antiques co-op.
and another, chock full of antiques in North Carolina.
It gives me lots of storage and goes with my old vintage kitchen things.
My "new" cabinet
Love the black-painted border trim on the glass!
My other old cabinet
This is my other cabinet, across the room. They flank the big window.
Soon they will be decorated for Christmas.
All I have so far is a blooming Christmas Cactus, and my Christmas teacup
and storybook, A Cup Of Christmas Tea.
I have been busy putting up decorations for my clients, so mine aren't done yet.
Doris is happy, her tree's up!
One of Doris's treasures, a gift from a beloved family member.
Isn't this cute?
Isn't this cute?
Since I'm a painter, I'll have to make me one of these,
with one of my ole brushes!
Doris's Thomas Kinkade Nativity Set
Then, I also got the outdoor decorations up at this house
last week, where I recently painted all the exterior trim.
(Putting up the decorations was lots more fun!)
And indoors...... I got out Sandee's very special nativity set!
A present from her granddaughter,
carved of olive wood from Jerusalem.
It's very difficult for them to get out, and put up all their decorations.
But it brings them so much joy, and seeing their old things brings
back so many memories, keeps traditions alive!
I am blessed to have a job where I help people.
It pleases them to have their homes all ready for the holidays,
and I love doing this! Now, I'll get mine done!
Have fun with your family and friends in your holiday preparations!
This week I've joined in the Etsy Cottage Style Market Monday, Holiday Edition!
and at Kathe's party too!
and these cool parties too!
Lots of vintage goodness here!
