Good Monday morning everyone,
Below is a very old fashioned dessert that I made last week.
My aunt made a similar recipe with cream cheese but this recipe is even simpler and lighter than hers.
I found this Lemon Fluff recipe at Taste of Home.
It’s a very frugal recipe using just graham cracker crumbs, butter, sugar, lemon juice, lemon jello and canned milk.
The secret to its lightness is whipping up a can of cold milk.
That little can of milk whips up just like heavy cream.
By itself, it is very bland but when you add the lemon, etc in the recipe, it comes out delicious.
My husband liked it so much! So, I made a second Lemon Fluff yesterday that we will enjoy this week.
A new food we tried is the ready to cook flour tortillas from Aldi.
The tortillas are very thin and need to cook about 2 1\2 minutes in a hot dry skillet or gridle.
The tortillas puff up while cooking.
They are made in Weslaco, Texas and are probably sold at other stores in addition to Aldi.
I know some of you are very interested in the nutrition and ingredients of store foods so hopefully you can read the package if you want.
When cooked, our tortillas didn’t roll but they did fold in half just fine and hold the taco ingredients.
Each bag has 20 tortillas in it so it will feed my husband and I several meals.
I think the bags were about $2 -2.75, they are in the refrigerator case near the lunch meat products.
Another new product I’m really liking are these little clips for sewing.
They look kind of like tiny clothes pins.
They are great for sewing knits, to hold the pieces together flatter than pins, especially knit fabric.
I ordered mine form Amazon, 100 clips were about $9
Sewing projects- I made a Summer Kimono pattern from Patterns For Pirates for my daughter.
For myself, I used some $2 a yard Walmart knit to make a Laundry Day Tee dress by Love Notions.
And, a summer kimono, which I don’t love. Maybe mine is too big or maybe I’m just not a kimono girl.
Another sewing project was hemming 5 pair of suit pants for our son that wears suits 95% of his working time.
One was Ralph Lauren and it was an especially nice feeling fabric.
We still like our Rae Dunn pottery but I haven’t added any new pieces in months.
My son saw a lot of mugs at the Little TJMaxx in our town so I went and checked them out.
I happily bought some Christmas mugs for us and some others for gifts.
Granddaughter Elizabeth is in Girl Scouts and they had an old fashioned tea party to learn about manners and traditions.
These 2 photos are a bit blurry but don’t the little girls look sweet with tea cups and such?
I’m re-posting our Stuffed Pepper Soup since so many of you asked about it.
Hope you all have a good week ❤️🏡❤️
