Remembering Christmas’s past, all of our loved ones, those who we haven’t seen since last year, or those who are no longer with us. A time to enjoy all of our new arrivals, and seeing their tiny eyes light up as they view the bright lights for the first time. Seeing the twinkle in the older generations eyes as they watch everyone’s excitement. There is an embedded memory in their head that reflects on the times they, too, sat around the brightly lit tree and sang or listened as their mother or father read the story of His birth from the Bible.
Then there are those who never had the luxury of a lit tree, presents under a tree, or believing in Santa. Their families were so poor they were lucky to get a piece of fruit. That’s why we adopt an angel, young or old, for an angel tree somewhere. These people don’t know where the gifts come from. They just know someone took the time and spent their hard-earned money so that someone who normally wouldn’t get gifts would have a Merry Christmas.
Christmas is to celebrate Jesus’s birth. We do that by our gifts to others. I’m going to give all of my fans a gift. I have lowered the price of the Davis series eBooks to .99 for the next 5 days. It might take Amazon a day to update the price. The Davis series is two books you won’t be able to stop reading until the end. I promise.
I also have other news. The Davis Series will be the last two books I’ll be writing. As of the time of this newsletter, I don’t intend to finish the third book in The Weber, Texas Series right now. I might work on it in the future.
I do hope you have enjoyed my books and they will continue to be available on Amazon. I urge you to take advantage of the two books on sale.
Now, as for Christmas, I hosted our Rose City Writers club Christmas party at my house, and it was a great success. We had more food than we could eat. I think everyone got full.
We laughed through a game I made them play. They thought they would have to write something, but that wasn’t the case. All I can say about these very talented writers, they sure can’t draw.
Now for the recipe of the month. Because everyone was bringing dips, chips, casseroles, salads, etc., I only made a couple of appetizers. This one was simple and everyone loved it. It came from my favorite cook, Ree Drummond. Try it for your next get together.
Holiday Bacon Appetizers
Prep: 30 Minutes
Cook: 2 Hours
• 1 package Club Crackers
• 1 pound Thin Sliced Bacon (or More Depending On Number Of Crackers)
• Grated Parmesan Cheese
• Optional Alternative: Brown Sugar Instead of Parmesan Cheese
Lay crackers (as many as you want) face up on a cookie sheet.
Scoop about 1 teaspoon of grated Parmesan cheese onto each cracker. Cut your package of bacon in half (or cut pieces individually) and carefully, so the cheese doesn’t fall off, wrap each cheese covered cracker in a one-half piece of bacon, completely covering the cracker. It should fit snugly around the cracker.
Place the bacon wrapped crackers onto a baking sheet that has a rack on it.
Place in a 250-degree oven for about 2 hours.
