Spinach Bacon Penne Pasta from Savory Sweet Life

When I saw this recipe for Spinach Bacon Penne Pasta over at Savory Sweet Life, I knew I had to make it immediately. Pasta, spinach, bacon, cheese...what's not to love? Alice's recipe sounded perfect just the way it was, but I'm not capable of following a recipe without messing around with it a bit. As with most things I cook, I ended up making it as fattening as possible. (I know I'm terrible, I'm working on it...kinda). Since I'm not cured of my evil pork fat lovin' ways just yet, I substituted half the olive oil with bacon grease, I added a splash of heavy cream, tossed in some red pepper flakes and heaped on some extra Parmesan. It was FABULOUS! I highly suggest you give it a try. The healthy version or my artery clogging concoction, the choice is yours. Either way, give it try, it's YUM!

Coach gave it two thumbs up and the Knuckleheads cleaned their plates, spinach and all!

Crafty Kids ~ Bird Feeders

I used to make these peanut butter bird feeders when I was a little girl. As a matter of fact, the wooden cutouts are some extras that my Daddy made for me years ago. Over time, they worked their way to the bottom of my big craft bucket. I was thrilled to rediscover them in a cleaning frenzy a couple of weeks ago and knew the kids would love this fun little project.

And I was right...they loved it!!!

More Snow Pics

We were so excited about the little amount we had in the previous pictures, we had no idea we would wake up to this the next morning!

Coach got ambushed in the Great Snowball War of 2010

I've never seen snow like this in our little corner of the world. It was BEAUTIFUL!!! It didn't last long, but we sure had fun while it was here. It was a nice little treat, but now I'm ready for Spring. I honestly don't see how people put up with the cold, slush and sludge for extended periods of time.
This Southern girl COULD NOT HANDLE IT!
