This was a great challenge -- fun, tasty, and a wonderful opportunity to create a new family snack. I made a couple of #TeamSavory batches that has a touch a of sweet as well.

1 box Cheez*It Duoz Cheddar Jack & Sharp Cheddar Pretzel 1 box Cheez*It Duoz Bacon & Cheddar 1 bag Kroger Mini-Twist Pretzels 1 Cannister Kroger Honey Nut Roasted Whole Cashews 1 Cannister Kroger Private Selection Praline Pecans I 11 oz package M & M's. Mixed all together and divided into two airtight containers.

It turned out beautifully and it's absolutely delicious! #MyMagazineSharing #FestivalFavourites #KrogerFaves #TrailMixChallenge #FreeSample

I'm Back!

After a VERY extended period of no stitching, I'm back!  My eyesight went bad... so it was, I thought, useless to keep trying.

However, Happy Husband bought me a new OTT-LITE desk lamp and some 5X readers (yes, 5X, can you imagine?) and I cautiously picked up an old WIP.

This is Celtic Heart from M-designs.  I started this several years ago on 36 ct. Lugana.  The floss is Vikki Clayton's HDF in Lavender and Rose.  I'm working 1 over 2 and getting fantastic coverage.

I have the chart divided into 4 parts to make it easier to keep my place.  So far, so good.

It's so nice to have needle and fabric in my hand again.  I've missed this.

I'll update my progress in a couple of days.

HORMEL GATHERINGS® Party Trays -- Review!

Disclosure:  I received coupons for free products in order to facilitate this review.  All opinions are my own and based on my own use of, and experience with, the product.

I LOVE parties! I do -- especially during all of the Fall and Winter holidays! What I DON'T love is shopping for appetizers.  This year I was truly blessed to be asked to review 
Hormel Brands Party Trays for my readers!

We had a lovely Thanksgiving Day with family and friends.  After dinner, we had a fire in the firepit and indulged in the Hard Salami and Pepperoni Party Tray (28 oz!). We finished it off in record time! #StressFree

Unfortunately, I didn't get photos (not any that turned out).  However, I do have photos from a second smaller get-together.

Ah... Christmas parties! This time we chose the Honey Ham and Turkey Party Tray! Colby Jack and Cheddar Cheese with buttery crackers makes a delicious pre-dinner snack or even a light meal for nights you don't want to cook!

Doesn't that look amazingly delicious? IT IS! 

Hormel Party Trays are perfect for game days, tailgates, rainy days, parties, or picnics! Anytime is the right time!

Visit for tips and suggestions on how to make your holiday get-together a success!
