Dirt Cake

Dirt Cake Ingredients:

1 lb. package of Oreo cookies
1 8-oz. package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
3 cups milk
1 12-oz. tub of Cool Whip
2 3 1/2-oz. packages of instant chocolate or vanilla pudding
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Gummy worms
Plastic flowers

Directions:
In a blender, crush Oreos into a powder. Place 1/3 of the crushed Oreos into a new, clean flower pot or small plastic beach bucket (if your pot has a hole in the bottom, you will need to plug it up first). Set aside. Combine butter, cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix, and fold the Cool Whip into the pudding. Fold the pudding mixture into butter and cream cheese mixture. Layer 1/2 of the mixture over the crushed cookies in the pot. Cover the pudding mixture with 1/3 of the crushed cookies, then add the rest of the pudding mixture. Push a few gummy worms partway into the pudding mixture and top with the remaining cookie crumbs.

Chill in refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours. Before serving, “plant” a few plastic flowers and/or fresh mint sprigs in the soil. You may want to serve it with a new, clean garden trowel or plastic shovel.

Memorial Day 2015

Memorial Day is not the first day of summer. 
Memorial Day does not mean a weekend filled with BBQ's and parties. 
Memorial Day is the time to pay homage to the men and women who died while serving our country. Memorial Day is a day to honor those who died to give us our freedom.....
“Freedom isn’t free.”
“The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. 
And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission.”
 -- John F. Kennedy
