  1. Hi there - coming in from Ann's...I try to visit the person to the left and to the right of where ever I land on Monday mornings...so it is nice to meet you today! Love the snowy pictures and the wild turkeys! And crockpot pizza soup sounds like a recipe I will have to hunt down!

    Blessings on your day!

  2. Tuesday now means just a continuation of Multitude Monday for me. Can’t stop reading lists. And so I’m here today from Ann’s.

    And today my favorite from your list was 355. making homemade meatballs and spaghetti sauce – although the turkey picture was close – my mom would simmer sauce all day long – with the meatballs in it – she’d have to make twice as much because she knew we’d be dipping bread in it the whole time – we didn’t think she knew. {smile}

    God Bless and keep you and yours Julie Anne
    May His face shine upon you…
    and all of yours.

  3. I loved the spaghetti sauce picture! Looks like yours spits back at you just like mine does. Sounds like a good dinner choice for tonight. All the pictures are just great --- but the lawn mower one was just the best! Thanks for sharing your list today. It was so good to have been here!
