As I stamped today I was wrapping some cord and my children's cat hopped up on my desk to check out what I was creating. LOL

Today is another BLOG HOP day! Be sure to check out 11/29: Jessica & Korin's Blog today when you are done here!!!

I am getting together with a few girlfriend's today to do Once a Month cooking! We are going to make 120 freezer meals and each come home with 30. We will be pretty tired when we go home. We each had some prep work to do at home this week before the big cooking event! Tomorrow will mainly be assembly! :)

Now for my card...

Now if you cooked TURKEY for THANKSGIVING you may have a lot of left overs! Here is a delicious recipe to use up some of your turkey on...

Turkey Stew with Dumplings
By: Chris Dickinson
8 medium carrots, cut into 1-inch chunks
4 celery ribs, cut into 1-inch chunks
2 med. chopped onion
½ cup butter or margarine
2 can (10 ½ oz.) beef consommé
4 2/3 cups water, divided
2 tsp. Salt
¼ tsp. Pepper
3 cups cubed cooked Turkey
2 cups frozen green beans
½ cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. Baking powder
1 tsp. Salt
2 T. minced fresh parsley
1/8 tsp. Poultry seasoning
¾ cup milk
1 egg
In a large soup kettle, sauté carrots, celery and onion in butter for 10 minutes. Add consommé, 4 cups water, salt and pepper. Cover and cook over low heat for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add turkey and beans; cook for 5 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine flour, Worcestershire sauce and remaining water until smooth. Stir into turkey mixture, bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. For dumplings, combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine milk and egg; stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Drop by the tablespoons onto simmering stew. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes; uncover and simmer 10 minutes longer. Yield: 10-12 servings.

Come back tomorrow for another peek for the BLOG HOP!!! Thank you for stopping by and have a WONDERFUL Saturday!

What a wonderful design you created for this card! I love how you put the snowman and Gretchen behind all the snow, very effective! Your coloring is beautiful.
