James was Blessed

Well today we blessed James. It was a really special day, we had family and friends that came from far away just for this. It was great to have them here! Jimmy did a great job blessing his son and we were so grateful to have so many great men in the circle. Thanks to all that made it! After the blessing we headed to my parents for lunch! It was a very nice afternoon and I had lots of help in making some of our families favorite foods! Some of them asked for recipes so I thought I would post them here!

Asparagus Wrapped in Prosciutto
1 Tbs. Olive Oil
16 spears asparagus (or how ever many you want to eat)
16 slices Prosciutto (equal to asparagus)

1.Preheat oven to 450, line baking sheet w/ foil and coat with Olive Oil.

2. Wrap one slice around each spear (I start at bottom and spiral up)

3. Place on baking sheet and Bake 5 min. turn them over and bake 5 more min. or until asparagus is tender & prosciutto is crisp.

This is very easy to make! My brother-in-law helped with these ones.

Crisp Tortellini Bites
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
2 tsp. chicken boullon granuels
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
2 Tbs. milk
1 package refrigerated cheese totellinis
Warm pizza sauce or Marinara for dipping

1. Heat oven to 400

2. In medium bowl combine dry ingredients

3. In another bowl combne sour cream and milk and stir till creamy

4 Dip tortellini in sour cream and then dry mixture; coat evenly and place on baking sheet

5. Bake 10-12 min turning once

Serve with warm dipping sauce and enjoy!

Cheesy Potato Soup
4 cups potatos 1/2 cup butter
1 cup celery 1/2 cup flour
1 cup carrots 2 cups milk
1 cup broccoli 16oz. cheeze wiz
1/4 cup onion
2 tsp. salt
4 cups water

Combine all but flour, butter, milk and cheeze wiz in a large pot cook until potatos and veggies are tender then add butter, flour, milk let thicken then add cheeze.

I forgot to take a picture.

This is just a fun way to hold your veggies on a serving tray. You just cut the top off of bell peppers and hollow them out then fill with carrots, celery, cucumbers or anything that you want.
