What a wonderful weekend and Surprise Birthday I did have…My children came in from the Carolina’s, different parts of Michigan and gave me the Best, Super, Totally Surprise Birthday Party that I have ever had.

There were some of my great friends from the Marion area, Reed City area, as well as other parts of Michigan…I had family from all parts of Michigan and how they kept this from me is so special…Last and certainly not least MY BEAUTIFUL FAMILY, JULIE, LINDSY, SUSAN, and their husbands for putting this on.There are no words that can express my loving thanks to them.

My 98 year old beautiful Aunt Vera, and my friends that were able to come and watch me very close to a fainting spell when I opened the door at the Log Cabin in Muir and was not able to speak needless to say that was something that they have never seen before. Again my heart felt thanks to everyone that helped me into another year of this GREAT life that I have had and expect to continue to have.
Now for some good old recipes that you all can try.
by Judy Stark

1 1/2lbs. ground beef
1pkg. (3 oz.) each Oriental
flavor Ramen noodles

2 cups frozen vegetable mixture

1/4 tsp. ground ginger

In a large non-stick skillet, brown the ground beef, heat 10-12 minutes or until the beef is no longer pink. Remove from pan, pour off drippings. Season beef with one season packet from the noodles and set aside. In the same skillet, combine two (2) cups water, vegetables, noodles (broken up), ginger and remaining season from packet. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat. Cover, simmer three (3) minutes or until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally. Return beef to skillet and stir.
This will make four (4) servings and will take approximately 25 minutes to prepare and cook…..Super goood.

Cut bacon into small pieces and cook until done. Cook onion and beef together and drain. Combine with remaining ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to one (1) hour, uncovered.
This is another one of those super good foods from the south…..cook and enjoy……

Now until next, I leave you with a poem from Lord Bryron…

Here’s a sigh to those who love me
And a smile to those who hate;
And whatever sky’s above me,
Here’s a heart for every fate.

God Bless,
Carol Jean
