Nothing.

But I just picked about 20 lbs of pecans out of my yard (I have 6 pecan trees), and will be making Pecan Pie bars and Pecan sandies to send to friends who want them. If anyone here would like a sample, PM your address and I'll send you a few.

Maven, didn't I post the recipe on facebook? I thought you commented on it - something about posting a recipe for decadently delicious unhealthy food, when I was losing weight.

Kelly's Famous Pecan Pie Bars.

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup margarine

4 eggs

1 1/2 cups light corn syrup

1 1/2 cups white sugar

3 tablespoons margarine, melted

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups chopped pecans



Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan.

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt. Cut in 1 cup of margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the prepared pan, and press in firmly.

Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.

While the crust is baking, prepare the filling. In a large bowl mix together the eggs, corn syrup, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 3 tablespoons margarine, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the chopped pecans. Spread the filling evenly over the crust as soon as it comes out of the oven.

Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until set. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing into bars.

My son got way too many gifts to mention. Couple of the ones I remember are:

Dinasaur puppets from his Aunt. He loves these things.
A Dry-erase board that we put on his wall so he can color on from me and my wife.
my inlaws bought a bunch of lumber that we are building floor to wall shelves on one half of his room with.

Myself:

Josh Freeman Jersey (Buc's QB.)
couple long sleeve work shirts and two pairs of jeans.
$25 Itunes gift card.
$40 check.
$100 check.
$10 Five Guys gift card (best ever.)
A package that contained over 25 different size and variations of pocket knives. (this was awesome, already used 3-4 of them!)
The new Family Guy Star Wars DVD.
Inception on DVD.
The Other Guys on DvD.
A-Team on DVD.
The 3rd season of Big Bang theory on DVD.
Think that is about it. Will be buying a 40-42" flat screen TV here soon, maybe tomorrow.

My Wife got a couple cool things:
I bought her a really nice (and expensive) Nativity set.
Wii sports Resort and the motion Wii thing for our second controller.
A professional grade crock-pot 3 in one thing, kinda like you see at banquets.


Think that is about it.

T, I bought my grandson this thing called a Kota triceratops. It is a big dinosaur they can ride on. It is kinda pricey (300.00) but the kid is nuts for it.

As do I. Never seen a kitchen gadget that I didn't want.

Now if my SO bought me something like a vacuum, that would be another story. I ~hate~ housework. I ~love~ to cook.

I've bought my wife house hold appliances and items before. We have a rule where if its something that can actually be used, then why not spend the money on it versus buying something that will sit on a shelf, in the attic, or end up being given to someone else because it "seemed cool" but wasn't practical.

Last Christmas I bought her one of those K-Cup coffee makers. One of the best gifts ever, we use it at least three or four times a week. It was well worth the money, and she had no issues with getting that for Christmas. Its something we can use and get value out of.

Maven - I'm not opposed to big gifts or expensive gifts (hell I bought my kid a fairly expensive Radio Flyer heavy duty off-road wagon when he was 2..he still can't pull the thing and he's 4!!), but i don't think he has any room for anything else. His birthday was two weeks ago and he racked up there, and Christmas was even worse.

At least he had BOTH. That is a good thing.

Take it from somoene who has a b-day 3 days before Christmas. It SUCKS. I cannot count how many Santa birthday cakes I got, or how many people would give me a combination present.

And yeah yeah, my son says his kid has too much stuff too. That is the good part about being the grandma. I don't have to find a place to store it <weg>

I got a bread machine from hubby one year that also made jam. It was wicked cool to wake up to THAT smell in the morning!!

I teach a class of one year olds (it can be done) so I got some cute gifts this year. The standard candles, ornaments, gift cards, tea, books, etc.

But I must say the best present I received is from a friend of mine who has a son in my class and I had her daughter as well.. and she teaches in the room beside me. I am an avid Steelers fan, she is unfortunately a Cowboys fan. She gave me a Steelers picture frame with a picture inside of her two kids wearing Cowboys Jerseys and it says "Go Cowboys" On the top... Best. Present. Ever. It makes me smile.. It makes me shake my head. All around good conversation piece.



Edited photo because I hate posting pictures of people's kids on the internet, oh and not to mention there is a pedophile topic in the same forum.. :?
