Jesus loves you ... and peanut butter balls.

I had a friend when I was little that invited me to Vacation Bible School.  I had only really ever gone to my own church activities so this was fun to visit another church.  I don't remember a ton..  Just tracing my body to make a lifesize cutout..  It had something to do with Jesus..   and then singing about Jesus... and some other things about Jesus.    Which is similar to my church...  but then we made these delicious Honey Peanut Butter balls..  which also somehow related to Jesus..  don't remember how...... but for years I remembered these treats but had lost the reciepe.

Thankfully with the invention of recipe sites I as an adult was able to look it up and make them at my house : )

Here is a link to the recipe:

  • 2 cups dry powdered milk (adjust based on the amount of honey
  • 1 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/2-1 cup Honey

  • Mix all ingredients well until stiff enough to shape.
  • Form in balls about the size of a walnut.
  • Chill well for 2 - 4 hours.

They are super simple..  Delicious.. and now I think about Jesus everytime I eat them..  Well played VBC.. Well played...

Ducked Out House Party

I've shared our previous experience with HOUSEPARTY.COM     HERE.  If you haven't had the chance to check it out you should. It gives you the opportunity to host a group of your friends in your home and share a product with them.  You share info about your party on their website as well as your social media. In return you get a party pack of items to host your party and try out.

The party that we had the opportunity to host last week was for one of our favorite shows Duck Dynasty.  If you haven't checked it out it is on A&E Wednesday nights.
Invites were sent out through the house party website.  We sent our guests invites with the instructions to BYOB (bring your own beard) and favorite redneck snack.

Our guests really got into it. Some of them had never seen the show but quickly got into it and how funny it is!

We decorated a little on the outside..  and to keep it really legit.. we didn't mow our lawn for a long while. LOL.
Our Duck Blind

Like I said.  Our guests really got into it and Camo'd and Bearded themselves appropriately. 

Jason was the only one to have a real beard.

 Sadly we didn't get any family shots!  But Here are a few separates.
 Me with my camo
 My Sister in Law

 The Hubs (He looks more like Sergio Romo than a redneck.. but HEY)
 The baby even joined in and wore camo!  He enjoyed the cut out of Jase.

Our party pack included Trivia Cards, Recipes, Cut out masks of the main characters, a bandana, t shirt, cups and coasters.  We gave out candy for correctly answering the trivia questions and the t shirt for guessing how many times the family said HEY in one episode.  (you have to watch to understand)
We also gave away a "duck call"  I think she liked it!

Our food spread was Tator Tot Casserole, Pigs in a blanket, pizza, jalapeno poppers, lil smokie/potato skewer, clam dip, hand pies and donuts.  We were all very very very stuffed after the ridiculous amount we ate!

Go to House Party and sign up if you haven't.  It is loads of fun : )   And watch Duck Dynasty on A&E.
