Here we go!!!!!
Sweet Lori asked me to join her and some of her friends for the second annual Visions of Sugarplums event. Well of course I answered yes with a big smile on my face. Now this is fun!!
As I reflect back on my life, I see how many traditions have changed especially now that all the kids are grown and have moved to far away places. But one tradition that still remains the same, is hanging a Christmas wreath on the front door. The wreath represents the unending circle of life and love and is a sign of welcome, inviting all to enter.
One of my favorite treats to offer guests are roasted pecans. Melt one stick of butter and blend in one teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce , one teaspoon soy sauce and a fourth of a teaspoon of garlic powder. Mix well and then combine with four to six cups of pecan halves. Put in a shallow pan and bake at 225 degrees for 45 minutes or until toasty brown. Shake pan every fifteen minutes. Marvelous with drinks!
My Christmas wreath card invites you to enter the following blogs.
So Santa tells me that if you leave a comment on each and everyone of our blogs today - you are eligible to win a prize. And then - Lori will announce Monday's winner Tuesday on her blog. I can't wait to visit all the blogs. You never can tell what tip or trick you have been waiting for all your life!! Enjoy this fun week. I know I will!!
Thanks for all your comments!! Sandy Claus
