Do these trees really fit back in to the box! Next year I am getting Giant plastic wrap, and wrapin this thing up lights, decorations and all!! I have all things Christmas packed and ready to go into the attic until next year. I am enjoying a clean house but the is a sigh of sadness to pack up all that Christmas delight.
** I did find a sucker stick, small toy cow and a napkins stuck in my tree...hmmm wonder who put that there!
I have never used a Pressure Cooker befor. Mr Safety spent 2 years in Brazil living off of food cooked in a pressure cooker. I am scared of the things, I envision the house exploding with some crazy mishap. I am here to tell you its not that scary!! I was very pleased.
First I "Quick Soaked" my Great Northern Beans by keeping a 2 cups of water to 1 cup of Bean ratio.
Bring Beans and water to Boil
Boil for 2 mins
Cover for and hour drain water
My pressure cooker said to add 5 cups of water for dried beans so that's what I did
added my leftover diced ham, dried onion, salt and pepper
**I followed the instructions that came with my cooker**
bring to pressure on high once it starts to left off steam or jiggle turn down to med-low (like a 4-5 on my stove) then start time
20 MIN that is it I tell you, 20 minutes to this yummy dinner!!! LOVE IT
Ok now that I have given this gift I can post about it! G was so excited to give a gift that she can use!
This fun little kit went to her Pop and Grandma
1 Black Hat
1 Red Scarf
2 Rocks eyes
1 carrot Nose
Handful of rocks for a mouth
3 tin buttons
2 sticks for arms
***Just add Snow
Found the hat and scarf at the store
I hot glued tin lids from canning jars and painted them Black for buttons.
Found some rocks (in my neighbors yard!) and painted them black also.
The carrot nose was hard to find (I wanted a fake one) I looked at a couple stores and ended up finding it at Hobby Lobby.
Mr Safety cut some branches of our tree for arms.
I think it turned out cute, a fun gift for someone who gets to live where it SNOWS!
