Easy Ham Dip

This is sooooo easy!!!  Great to take to a gathering or just to have at home to snack --

Ham Dip

2 packages cream cheese, softened
1 clump green onions, chopped
1 pkg. thinly sliced deli ham, chopped

Just mix it all together!!!!  Refrigerate and serve with crackers!!

This will last several days and makes a good amount.

How easy is this!!!!!


Lucy got many gifts from Santa for Christmas but this was her big gift.

Just like last year - Santa got her a nice soft bed that she refuses to sleep in - she much prefers the little toy mice to any big gift --

Stuffed Mushrooms

Keep these in mind for your next get together (Super Bowl maybe??) or just as a treat for yourselves!!

Stuffed Mushrooms

Fresh Mushrooms, cleaned and stems removed
1 lb. Italian Sausage (browned, crumbled & drained)
2 T. dried parsley
2 T. grated Parmesan Cheese
1 C. shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Place mushrooms in a bowl and toss with some olive oil.  In a separate bowl - combine the browned sausage, parsley and both cheeses.  Stuff this mixture into the mushrooms.  Place in a baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until done (cheese is melted and sausage is crisp).

You can get as many mushrooms as you'll need.  Sometimes I get a small package and other times a larger one.  If I have any sausage mixture leftover I then decide if I want to save it and make more in a few days.

Mushrooms after they have been cleaned - they don't have to be all nice and white - it won't be noticed once cooked --

After they have been mixed with olive oil -

Browning the Italian Sausage -

After adding the cheeses and parsley -

Mushrooms all stuffed and ready to go in the oven -

I hope that you all had a good Christmas!!!!  We do not have any young ones at home -- but we do have Lucy!!!!  About 5AM I heard her going at a present under the tree -

Can you see that hole in the bottom of the left side of the gift?  She could 'sniff out' her favorite thing - mice!!!!!  That's the white one that she pulled out of the package (there were 3 more left in the package!!).  I had to get up because I could hear her batting it around -
