Heart Shaped Pierogies for Valentines Day


You could not drag me kicking and screaming into a restaurant on Valentines Day.  WAY too crowded, and usually overpriced, for me.  I would rather stay home and cook.  My favorite menu is prime rib, or steaks, and heart shaped pierogies.

I use a simple heart cookie cutter to cut out the dough, place a spoon of mashed potatoes (with some sour cream, cheese, garlic, and sauteed onions added in) and top with another heart of dough.  Then I use a fork to crimp the edges.

I usually boil these lightly, then toss in melted butter and more sauteed onions, and serve with sour cream.

For the Dough:

2 cups of flour
2 eggs (room temperature, and lightly beaten with a fork)
1/2 t salt
1/2 cup of room temperature water

Mix until the dough is well mixed and firm.  Let sit in a covered bowl for a few minutes.  (I usually let it sit while I mix up the potatoes)

For the Filling:
half an onion, sliced thin, sauteed in butter
mashed potatoes - you can even use instant
a little sour cream, to thin the potatoes

mix all together.

Replacing The Broken Glass on Our Patio Table -

We have horrible winds here.  One storm picked up our large patio table & smashed it sideways against the deck railing, shattering the glass top.
After looking at a couple of options, I bought a piece of plywood (they cut it to size for me even) and a remnant of linoleum from our local flooring store.
We should have sealed the plywood with an all weather paint first. 
Then we attached the linoleum with contact glue.  The entire project cost me about $35 and took minutes to complete. :-)

Homiletics Worksheet

One of my favorite seminars at BSF was on Homiletics.  I love the process of studying the bible through Homiletics.  Recently my friend Natalie taught our Sunday School class how to do homiletics, and again I found I really enjoyed the process, and I decided I wanted to use it more frequently.

There is a great "Crash Course In Homiletics" here - http://www.christinakline.com/homiletics-crash-course/
Earlier this summer our Pastors wife suggested, in our Womens Sunday School Class, that we choose one epistle and read it every day, for a month.  I love this bible reading plan.  I have used many plans over the years, and have read the bible cover to cover a few times now, so the idea of really learning one epistle at a time felt like a good next step for me.
For the month of August, I am reading Colossians every day.  It is only 4 chapters, a quick, easy read every morning.  I decided the 4 chapters made it perfect to use homiletics for my weekly study, doing one chapter each week…

How to Make a Chalkboard Graphic

I'm going to assume you already have a basic knowledge of some sort of graphics program.  Gimp is free.  I use Paint Shop Pro - because I have used it for many years, and I lack the attention span (& budget!) to keep up with photoshop.
