Wow! It's Been A Long Time

I must say it has been a very long time since I have sat down and just wrote out a post. I keep trying to come back but then I start to think, "Will any one care what I have to say?" or "Do I have anything interesting to write about?" I have answered both questions easily by looking back at prior posts. Yes and Yes. You all come and leave comments so I know you care and I always have something to say. What I have to say may not seem interesting to me but it could possible be to someone else.

I had been looking for many years for a church to join and call my home. I prayed about it a lot and one night just said to God" I am leaving it up to you". I got my answer that following Wednesday in the laundry mat. I was baptised last October. I greatly enjoy serving God and helping out at my church. I enjoy the fellowship and feel that I have found where God wants to use me.

My friend Robin and I have started a craft club for ladies. She and I are the only ones that are there every Saturday but even if it is just me and her hanging out, it's a great joy.We talk and laugh and right now we are doing scrap booking. I am making a scrapbook of pictures for my son. I know he will love it when he gets older and has his own kids to show it too. Robin and I have also taken over cleaning the church. I forgot how a church can echo when no one is there. I find my self singing while I clean and boy is it loud.

I have joined the choir. I have spent about 3 months trying to put together some choir hymnals for choir. My Pastor and his wife have a few books that are very old so I said I would copy the pages and put into books so their books would not get ruined. The hymnals turned out very nice. It makes me feel good to know I could do something to help out. I love singing in the choir but what I love more is the goofing around. My Pastor sometimes likes to start singing before us and he can't just stop in the middle so he sings it really fast and it always makes me laugh.

I have been asked to help out for Vacation Bible School and I am very excited. I will teach the crafts. I have been looking for weeks for the supplies we need. We all decided it would be cheaper to find the supplies and buy them ourselves then to buy the kits. I did find all the supplies but then had to cut out the different pieces that the kids will need. I have picked one craft for each day and I know the kids will have a blast. I will post later showing the crafts we will do.

It has been a crazy past few months but I am having fun and I am enjoying every minute of it.

Pizza Rolls


2 Rolls of sausage

2 Packages of Pepperoni

2 Cans/jars pizza sauce

2 16oz. bags of mozzarella cheese or 1 bag mozzarella and 1 bag mild cheddar

2 packages of egg roll wraps-20 in each pack

and any other pizza ingredient you wish: mushrooms, onions, green peppers, red peppers, anchovies,pineapple,ham,and bacon.
Fry sausage, set aside to let cool.
Cut pepperoni into 1/4 size pieces
In a large mixing bowl add pepperoni,sausage, cheese,pizza sauce and all other ingredients and mix until everything is covered by sauce
Set aside a small cup of water and a large cookie sheet.Put wrap at an angle, put a tablespoon of mixture on the center of the wrap.
Fold bottom up over the mixture and pull tight. Fold sides in and roll wrap until all you see is the corner.Dab your finger in the water and wet tip of wrap.Finish rolling and set on cookie sheet or a plate.

Set aside to let dry and try not to stack them on on another, the wraps tend to stick to each other. Preheat deep fryer to 425degrees and deep fry the rolls for 3-5 minutes, enough for wraps to turn brown.Let cool down and enjoy. I over stuffed my rolls and so it made them very hard to make them into rolls. I have been teased about mine because they look like envelopes...lol
They taste great no matter how you roll them.
