Fall Pumpkins

My local grocery store and craft store are carrying pumpkins and all the beautiful fall decorations. I look forward to the cooler weather, and I'm noticing the trees are slowing changing colors.

Suwanee Day Festival

Here are a few photos of our cities festival this past weekend. My daughter Bethany was of course on the other side of the street. She is the third on the right hand side with the ponytail.

Iwo Jima tribute. They didn't move.

You see that little guy in the front with the orange cap peeking his head out? That is my Jordy!

Michael and I enjoyed a yummy cupcake at the festival. They had arts and crafts and other businesses with booths.

Chocolate Sauce

Do you ever get those chocolate cravings at night? Well this little treat is delicious, but zer0 the guilt. I have been making this yummy chocolate sauce over my ice cream that was not just tasty, but low in sugar.

I use Hershey's cocoa, agave nectar, and vanilla.

First you add 2 to 3 Tbsp. of butter or margarine to the pan.

After the butter is melted I add about 3/4 cup of cocoa.

Then I add about 1/4 cup of milk. I might add a little more if it is to thick.

Once the milk is mixed in well with the cocoa, then I add the agave to taste. It is probably about 3 Tbsp. of syrup. I also have made this with soy milk for my daughter who is allergic to milk to add with her soy ice cream. The sauce should be stored in the refrigirator. It should last about two weeks in the refrigirator. Ours never last that long. Enjoy!

Mini Pillow

I purchased to get a thermofax of one of my designs made. I am still trying to get the hang of the screen as far as having a consistant color on the fabric. I'll show you my other attempts soon.
