Aren't these just the cutest things!  I'm on the mailing list for Lowe's Creative Ideas Magazine and this DIY project was in it.  Here's the link to the DIY project on Lowe's Creative Ideas site:  DIY Mumpkins .  And while you are there, sign up for their magazine.  It's filled with great ideas for inside and outside of the home!

Sneak Peak at Holiday Designs

I know the leaves are just starting to turn, but I thought I'd give you a sneak peak at the snowflake earrings I've been working on.  Can you believe the holidays are just a few months away!

Slider Style Burgers

I received this recipe from a friend a while ago and I have to admit that I was skeptical at first.  But I'm so glad I tried it!  These are so good!  I usually make a batch and wrap them in plastic wrap and store in the fridge.  They're great to take for lunch with a salad or for a quick snack.

2 pounds ground beef
1 (1.25 ounce) envelope onion soup mix
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
24 dinner rolls, split
1/2 cup sliced pickles (optional)

Cook and brown the ground beef in a large skillet; Drain and discard any excess grease. Stir in onion soup mix. Remove from heat. Stir the mayonnaise and Cheddar cheese into the ground beef mixture.  
Lay the bottoms of the dinner rolls on the prepared baking sheet. Spread the cheese and beef mixture on the bottom half of each roll. Replace the tops. Cover with another sheet of aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake in the preheated 350 oven until the burgers are heated through and cheese melts, about 30 minutes. Serve with sliced pickles.

*If I'm storing for later use, I make the sandwiches but do not bake.  Instead I wrap them in plastic wrap. Just heat them up in the microwave when ready to eat!

Pink Fling Luncheon ~ Hampstead, MD

Last week I dropped a special item in the mail.  I donated a breast cancer awareness necklace to an event supporting the Wish Fund of Carroll Hospital Center.  If you are in the Hampstead, MD area, check out this luncheon!  It sounds like a wonderful time .... wish I was closer!
