Waiting For My Camera to Charge and Downton Abbey

Yep, kind of dead in the water waiting for the camera battery to charge.
We had a very good New Year's.  We got together with friends on New Year's Eve and then had the Mom's for dinner on New Year's Day.
New Year's Eve was Hor's d'oevers.  I brought Jalapeno Popper Dip.  I got the recipe from someone I work with.  It is's the recipe. It does pack a bit of a kick.  

Jalapeno Popper Dip

2 8 oz pkgs of cream cheese room temp.
1 c. mayonaise
1 4 oz can diced mild green chilis
1 4 oz can diced jalapeno peppers drained
1 c. fresh grated parmesan (not the stuff in the green can...ewww)
1/3 c. grated cheddar cheese
bread crumb no idea how much, I just sprinkled over the top
jalapeno pepper slices

Preheat oven to 350.
Mix together the cream cheese and mayo...I did it with my mixer.  Add the peppers and cheeses.  Spread in an oven proof pan, a pyrex pie plate will do nicely.   Sprinkle the bread crumbs on top and artfully (haha) arrange the sliced jalapenos.  Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly.  Serve with taco chips or cracker of choice.  I guarantee someone will ask you for the recipe.

We are headed for another deep freeze or Polar vortex.  It started out at 16 this morning at 7 am.  It is now -6 and dropping.

I really thought I would be done with my Lizzie Kate Mystery Sampler but, the holidays, kids, and work slowed my down.  I had several other Christmas pieces I wanted to do.  Maybe I should work on nothing but, Christmas stuff this year.  Nooooo, I'm chomping at the bit to start my Eye on the Sparrow.
I'm on the final section.  I am also working on two pairs of socks.  

Got to go...getting close to Downton Abbey.  
Happy New Year!
Thanks for stopping.
Keep on Stitching
