What's on the Menu!

I have one of my families favorite cookie recipe to share with everyone. I have to make a double batch of this cookie because my son always wants a whole plate for himself. This was always my dad's favorite cookie at Christmas time. The reason everyone loves this cookie so much is because it melts in your mouth.

                                             Old Fashion Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 pound lard
3 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup peanut butter
3 teaspoons baking soda

Mix lard, brown sugar and white sugar very well. Then add vanilla and peanut butter and mix very good. After that has been mixed add baking soda and flour in and mix very good. The dough will be flaky and that is how it should be. Then you will take dough and form into about one inch ball and place on a ungreased cookie sheet. Take a fork and make a tic tac toe print on the cookie. Bake at 350 oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Christmas Decorations Pt3!

I have more decorations to share with everyone and this past weekend we have gone to Candy Cane Lane in West Allis. If no one knows what Candy Cane Lane it the neighborhood decorates their houses and collects donations for the M.A.C.C. fund. The area is three blocks long and four blocks wide. A lot of the houses really go out of their way to have decoration in front of the houses. I really enjoy going every year to see what new decorations the people have out there.

I was talking to two of the men collecting the donations this year and I can't believe how they stand out there all night long. I let them know that I was taking pictures to share with everyone on our blog and they let me take a picture of them to share with you. They are really nice men and doing this for a very good cause.

Here are some pictures-

I hope everyone enjoys the pictures and there are more to come.
