I have missed you all these last several days! I have been MIA because we moved again. Did I tell you that before? Well, we moved from our quiet town on the Jersey shore to a booming suburb of Philadelphia, in south Jersey. Truth be told, I have been stressed and had some reservations about moving back into “civilization” and an area we’ve moved away from before. However, things are really falling into place and I know it’s exactly where God wants us to be for now. :)
So, there’s a lot of unpacking to do and a lot of getting acquainted with our 1959 house. And yes, the beautiful woman who lived here before us, left it completely untouched for all those years! And in pristine shape, like I can’t even begin to describe how spotless it is. I love OCD people who love to clean. :) So, I am the proud owner of a vintage 50s/60s sputnik light fixture (see below) among other awesome vintage treasures which you may see from time to time.
Anyway, I got my act together in time for Easter so here’s the Peeps Apple Mallow Yam Yum Casserole recipe!
1 40 oz can of yams
2 chopped apples
1/3 c chopped pecans
1/4 c brown sugar
1 package of peeps (we used cake flavor to really mess with the tastebuds!) instead of the usual 1/2 c of mini marshmallows
3 tb butter
Mix together apples, sugar and pecans in a bowl. Arrange the yams and apples in a baking dish. Dot the top with butter and then bake for about 25 min at 350. Then, take out of oven and cut up the peeps, arranging over the top. Put back in oven and set to broil. Watch very carefully and take out as soon as they start to brown.
Hope you had a glorious Easter filled with family, friends and most importantly, the Risen Lord!
