Almond-Bacon Cheese Crostini

What a Card Blitz. There were a few ladies who have not been there for awhile. We made a cute little calendar, a gift card holder, a Valentine card, and a few gift tags. The tags had a beautiful mica shimmer. There were a few customers in the shop so the ladies patiently waited on me. Just had some plain old fun.

After everyone left had a wonderful surprise. Mandy, Joshua, and Emily surprised me with a vanilla shake. Oh my, I had not had one in a long time. But it was so wonderful just to spend some time with the guys. They grow so fast. You don't see them for a little while and they shoot up like weeds. Love to sit a talk and find out what they are thinking and doing. They are just so much fun.

Well I crashed and burned last night. Today after Frank's wonderful breakfast I cranked up the oven. We baked Butter Balls, Hello Dolly cookies, Oatmeal cookies, and a delicious leaning Pound cake. Yep, I did it again I grabbed the self-rising flour instead of the plain flour. I was sure I had my glasses on and had read the label right. Oh well I have made the flop. But the next one will be the best. I think James is gonna give CJ a run on the Hello Dolly Cookies. Maybe I better make a batch just for him and have Frank hand deliver them. We have closed the kitchen for the night but I will return.

Our recipe comes from Taste of Home. It sounds easy and delicious. Something to keep handy for a quick easy appetizer. Or just a fun snack. Sometime I like to have appetizers instead of a regular meal.
