Recipe, SAL, and Alivia!

Good Morning Sunshine! How are you today? Recovering from the sugar high after sneaking candy yesterday?

I've got a fabulous recipe from my grandma to share. I've used chocolate pudding but any flavor will work!

We call it "Chocolate Pudding Dessert"
Really Original huh?
For the Crust:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Place crumbled crust into a 13x9" pan and flatten covering the bottom of the pan evenly. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, bake for 15 minutes. Then allow to cool completely.

For the Center Layer:
8 oz cream cheese (allow to warm to room temp)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup thawed Cool Whip

Mix all ingredients together and spread evenly over cooled crust.

For the Pudding Layer:
3 pkgs of instant pudding
4 1/2 cup milk

Mix pudding together and pour over cream cheese layer. Then place dessert in refrigerator until pudding is set.

After pudding is set - cover with Cool Whip and chopped nuts.

It's the first again (another month shot all to h***) and I have no idea where the time has gone! But, it being the beginning of the month mean Snow Man SAL results!

Overall look so far...
Hard to believe this next month brings us to the halfway point already. Have a feeling the piece is going to be very busy when finished.

I would like to share a picture from yesterday. It needs some explanation. Alivia thought she needed to go potty - so she went and got the potty from the bathroom and brought it out to the dining room and placed it by her mommy to try to go. She sat there as if it was not an issue - no modesty problems for her. Afterwards, Alivia didn't find it necessary to wear her pants. No sure why she put her boots on but this is what she was proudly wearing after dinner.

I would call these boots sh** kicker barn boots. For whatever reason they are her favorites! What a kid!

Oh, had a bad time with some Silly Putty and Garin. Poor kid didn't realize I was joking when I told him to put it in his sister's hair. So, he put it in his own. And it stuck! I had to remove it hair by hair until the point I had to trim the Silly Putty out. He cried and I felt terrible. Sigh...I hope he doesn't put it in anyone's hair again.

Not much stitching going on lately. Hopefully, I'll get in there today!
Happy stitching!
