Discover New Italian Products in the Nonna Box

Discover New Italian Products in the Nonna Box…

Thank you to my new Italian friend, Guido, for my beautifully presented Nonna Box. Even before seeing all of the ingredients, recipes, and stories about Nonna, we were so impressed with the packaging and presentation.

My neighbor, who is also Italian, was especially excited because her children call their grandmother Nonna. After using the ingredients I needed, I gifted the box, recipes, and Moscato Wine Cream to her. She is a fabulous cook and will make the very best of it!

I am a simple cook, so I stuck with the Carnaroli Rice. Easy to make, yet delicious. Cooked with olive oil, white wine, and vegetable broth, this easy dish will fill you up. Top it with saved parmesan cheese for an extra layer of flavor.

The Corn Cookies are absolutely delicious! Just like corn bread, but prettier and with a delightful crunch. We use the Acacia Honey in our tea and as a dip for apples.

Play Doh Master

Don’t know if I’m biased, but my daughter seems to be quite the expert with Play Doh.  She makes food for weddings and parties, hair styles for dolls and ponies, and clothing/accessories for just about anyone who needs it.

This might not be exactly what you think of for the Really Crafty Link Party but I couldn’t resist showing off my daughter’s talents!

Food Friday

Food Friday…

I am continually amazed by the big hearts and generosity of my community. A local shelter, the St. Francis House, put a plea out on Facebook for us to fill their pantry. They were turning the homeless away from the bare shelves. Many of us stepped up and I hope the pantry is now overflowing.

Never miss an opportunity to help others.

And then bring along somebody small and teach her the value of giving to others. 😉

Thankful Thursday

imageimageimageHelping Hands of Nocatee delivered lots and lots of food and household items to some neighbors in need today. Our first delivery was on the third floor of an apartment complex with no elevator. We recruited a few helpers, including a mom with her six homeschooled kids. Wow! Those kids were awesome! We made it up in one trip and I only carried two bags!

The second delivery was even easier. We barely had to leave the car.

So, today, I am thankful for two things.

  1. Generous and helpful people.

  2. Abundance in my own life.

So very thankful.
