and nachos and cheese (recipe at the end of the post)........
and lemonade (recipe coming too!)...........
and made lip gloss (recipe coming)............
and did pedicures (compliments of moi!)............
After my Christmas party, my friend Kiley and I went to a lady's house to help with a kid's outreach. After that we came home, watched The Others (way less scary than the trailer made it seem), and went to bed at 10:30! I am shocked myself that we went to bed that early. I mean, we usually go to bed around 12:30 or 1:00. Then the next morning.......we babysat four kids (ages 10, 8, 5, and 2) for seven hours. And then after that, we went to Carols by Candlelight at my friends, Beth and Breanna's church (which was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!). Yes, I was pooped by the end of the day. Goodness.
Here are the recipes for the nachos, lemonade, and the lip gloss!
Home-made Nacho Cheese
1. 1 large block of Velveeta cheese (other brands may be substituted)
2. 8 oz. of sausage
3. 1 can of rotel (other brands may be substituted)
4. Brown sausage and drain it
5. Combine all ingredients in pot over medium heat until cheese is melted
(How to make the lemonade.....super easy!)
1. 1 cup of lemon juice
2. 1 1/2 cups of sugar
3. 6 cups of water
Stir all three ingredients together in large pitcher
Put 1/2 a lime, 1/2 a lemon, and 1/2 an orange in the lemonade and refrigerate
2. Any flavor of Kool-Aid drink powder (other brands may be substituted)
3. 1 lip gloss jar (I got mine at Wal-Mart....98 cents for two!)
Get one big scoop of Vaseline and put it in a bowl; and pour in as much flavored drink powder as desired (the more powder you put, the more color and flavor you get!). Stir the Vaseline and flavored drink powder together and put it in the microwave for 15 seconds. Take it out, put about a pinch's worth of water in the bowl, put it back in the microwave for 10 seconds, take it out, and stir it. After it is good and stirred, put it in your lip gloss jar and voila!
(For me, grape and cherry powder worked the best!)
