1: Up in the attic Down on my knees Lifetimes of boxes Timeless to me. Letter and photographs Yellowed with years Some bringing laughter Some bringing tears. | Time never changes The memories, the faces Of loved ones, who bring to me All that I come from And all that I live for And all that I'm going to be. My precious family Is more than an heirloom to me. (Amy Grant)

Put in fridge and let set. Serve as a cheese roll with Ritz Crackers | Fish n Chips Lays Potato chips Lox Cream Cheese Chives Lay large potato chips out on a platter. Place a small piece of thinly sliced Lox on each chip. Place a dollop of cream cheese and sprinkle with chopped chives. We learned how to make this after visiting Hawaii one year and trying to find dinner late one night. The only thing open was the bar at our hotel. We went to see if they would serve food and they said they would make us something from the appetizer menu. On it was fish and chips. We thought that sounded great. Of course we were thinking of the old English style fish and chips. Boy were we surprised when they brought out five chips with lox and cream cheese on them. But we tried them and liked them. They have been a family favorite ever since.

You have to cut the layers in half with thread and sometimes instead of just layering with whip cream and strawberries he adds vanilla sauce.

We cherish the time we spent with her before she passed away and miss her warm hugs and loves! | Grandma rarely used a recipe so many of the things she made we will never be able to recreate but I do have her honey candy recipe and fond memories of helping her stretch it when I was I was growing up.

44: For Mark and Barry's visit this fall, we had homemade soups and bread sticks
45: Best Bread sticks Ever Thaw Rhodes Roll dough. Melt a cube of butter and sprinkle at least 3 tablespoons salad supreme into the melted butter. Dip each roll into the butter, stretch into a stick and place on the cookie sheet. Fill a cookie sheet . Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and let raise. Bake on 350 in the oven until well browned. | This is the noodle recipe I use to make Chicken Noodles. I roll them out with a rolling pin, sprinkle flour over it and roll the dough up and cut it into thin strips. Then when I add them to the soup the flour acts as a thickener and keeps the noodles from sticking together.
