Everyone in town knows that Christmas in Twilight has a way of bringing lovers together . . . but will its magic bring this pair from “I won’t” to “I do”?
Wearing a too-tight “Santa Baby” costume held in by a double pair of Spanx, Paige MacGregor runs headlong into a gorgeous, grey-eyed hunk of a long, tall cowboy. And not just any cowboy, but country-western star Cash Colton, visiting Twilight to perform in a charity concert. Most women would melt at his feet, but Paige knows all too much about self-assured men with cocky attitudes, so she tells him to get lost.
Cash is in town, nursing his own broken heart, but Paige has knocked him off his feet. He’s convinced she’s perfect—someone to inspire his music and share his now-empty bed. True, he’s not marriage material, but he’s determined to convince her that they’re perfect together—at least for a while. But what he doesn’t count on is falling in love with the one woman who isn’t about to give him the time of day!

Glad to see it’s Friday! We had a busy week here at home. Started off with a busy End of October with : Halloween, Day of the Dead & All Saints ( which was Wet & Cold) than on to November blew in with Storms & Warm weather. We went from temperatures in the 40’s to this weeks high of 85 – typical November weather for South Louisiana.
With that rapid change -it also brings in- Cold & Sinus problems and Mom;s Cure:
Chicken in Dumplings- I will be the first to say that depending on where you live this recipe can varies. My family even makes to kinds-
- Drop Dumpling -as the name the batter is dropped from a Tablespoon in hot brown chicken gravy. These dumplings are more a biscuit like dough recipe.
- The rolled out dumpling -are flat like and made more like homemade pasta. (Okay -I will confess -I buy them frozen from the big box store) .
My Chicken & Dumplings
Cut up chicken – Place in a large stock pot -Cover with water & seasoning. ( you are making Chicken Stock) . Let Cook until Chicken fall off the bones. Take Chicken out & separate meat. Strain Liquid & Return to pot. I add vegetables and Seasoning &cook.
You will need to being to boil and Add Dumplings. Stir & Place a Lid on pot on Medium for 45 minutes or until done. ( If you use frozen follow package direction) . Enjoy.
- You can use a whole chicken. pieces or boneless its your choice.
Today Thank You goes out to all of you that keeps the town clean & running. Garbage,town worker -public works -Thank You for all you do!
