If this is your first
Christmas together following a deployment -- make your own traditions --
concentrate on enjoying your new-found time together. If you will not be with
other family during the holidays, you may wish to contact his family and see if
there are one or two of his family traditions you can accommodate to your
holidays. Just ENJOY!! And Merry Christmas!!
When my husband came home from
being deployed long months overseas, he wanted his old favorites, those things
he could not have while gone. Something as simple as meatloaf made with my
recipe rather than the Navy's recipe and the next day a sandwich made from the
same meatloaf, sliced and fried. He wanted pork chops for Christmas dinner. He
got pork chops. The easiest solution to finding what to fix during his time home
is to ask him. I'm sure he'll have plenty of ideas. Be warned it might be his

Fae's Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe
3 cups mashed sweet potatoes
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 stick butter (softened or melted)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk (I
use 1 %)
2 eggs (beaten well)
1 tsp. butter flavoring
1 tsp. pure
sherry flavoring (I use Sauer's) you might not find this, if not use vanilla
While potatoes are hot, measure 3 cups, and then add butter and
sugar. This will melt the butter as well as the sugar, then add other
1 cup light brown sugar
butter (melted & cooled)
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans.
The topping can be mixed anytime, place in plastic bag,
sugar, flour and nuts, then pour liquid butter over, mixing well by pressing on
the plastic bag. Place on top of the potato mixture, and press down on the
Grease baking dish or spray. Bake approx. 35 min. at 350,
If the topping seems to be browning too much, lay piece of foil on top.....or
reduce heat if oven is too hot...
This freezes well, or you can halve the
recipe...but keeps good in the frig until all eaten.

Robbie's Christmas Oranment Recipes
This is for Granny, who was wanting ideas for Christmas ornaments that she
can make with her grandkids. I think many will submit how to make the ones you
described, so thought I would send these in to the newsletter. I hope you have
lots of fun with the grandkids. Note: None of these ornaments are meant to be
Christmas Wreath Ornaments
What You Need
lg. shredded wheat cereal
5 drops green food color
1/4 c. white glue
Break up shredded wheat "biscuit". Add
food color and glue. Mix. Put on a plastic butter lid and shape in a wreath
shape. Decorate with red hots. While partially wet make a hole and insert ribbon
for hanging. Dries in 24 hours.
Fresh Cranberry and Marshmallow
What you need
Thin florist wire
Pieces of orange rind (optional)
Cut wire into 16 inch lengths. Begin by threading a cranberry on
the wire, leaving 1 1/2 inches wire on the end. Alternate cranberries,
marshmallows, and orange rind. When wire is almost covered, twist it into a
wreath shape. Twist end pieces of wire together. Attach
ribbon to wire and
hang on tree.
Peppermint Hard Candy Ornaments
What You Need
Hard peppermint candies
metal cookie cutters
toothpick or skewer
twine or ribbon
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment
paper. Spray the inside of each cookie cutter with cooking spray. Lay cookie
cutters on baking sheet and fill with a layer of peppermints. You may need to
break or cut the candy to fill in all the spaces.
Bake for 3-9 minutes. Keep
an eye on candy as it melts, remove from oven when candies have melted together.
Lightly coat a toothpick with cooking spray and use it to make a hole in each
group of candies. Let candy sit inside cookie cutter until it re-hardens. Once
hard, carefully stretch out the cookie cutter, pulling it away from the candy,
to pop out your ornament.
These ornaments are really so easy, but it may
be helpful to make a trial run: Place one peppermint-filled cookie cutter into
the oven to get an idea of how fast the candy will melt and how quickly it will
cool and re-harden after you remove it from the oven.
Try turning down
the temperature of your oven, so that candies will melt more slowly, if your
candies are melting unevenly or at different rates.
Squeeze as many
peppermints, side-by-side, into your cookie cutter as possible. If peppermints
melt into too thin of a layer, try layering peppermints in the cookie cutter to
make a thicker, more sturdy, ornament.
Large, simply shaped, cookie
cutters work best for this project. The more intricate the cutter, the more
likely ornaments will break when removed from their cookie cutter mold.
Don’t forget to be careful around the hot metal and melted candy! This is a fun
craft to make with children, just be sure to provide plenty of supervision.
Try not to handle the ornaments too much because they can get sticky, but
they should be fine after they’re hanging on the tree.
