The Good Ole Home Front

There nothing wrong with handling things on the old home front. Confession time.... Actual I find it more rewarding then going to work in home-care field.
The main toilet in our place was having issues. Murphy thought we had to much wax seal on it. Not at all but some how the vent hole got plugged. Once that was clean it swirls right down like it should.
I'm clueless why Murphy stacked the wood in this matter. He want to dry a little more before bring it in the basement. In our home we have 3 ways to heat our home electrical, natural gas, and wood.
Murphy and I pretty much got the garden put to bed. I know we talk about moving some of the parsley to the south-side of the home. If it doesn't get done no big deal.
Well one important thing done to garden was a lite rot-tiled and little water which is beneficial for bacteria growth.
As I was coming up from the garden I notice the two shades of leaves on the south-side of our back yard. I just thought it was pretty so I went and took a picture of it.
We planted most of the bulbs I ordered. This time we dug trench 8” deep simple they were 25 bulbs to be planted at that depth. 5 purple lilies, 5 yellow lilies, 10 miniature daffodils. And 5 yellow hyacinths. I got some different types of grape hyacinths which needs to be planted about 4” deep.
Sure there other things to do with the flower beds. Like one of the cransbills geranium needs divided up. Also I would like to divided up some lavender but I'm not sure which would be the best way of going about it from seeds, dividing the plant (spiting the roots) digging up the entire plant, or using cuttings. 
I have to say I find her Sabbats work in ink catches my eye.
But these mummies hotdogs looks yummy. Reminds me of pigs in blanket which they served in school when I attend
Crispy Phyllo Wrapped Hot Dog Mummies

No need to be too meticulous when wrapping these spooky versions of pigs in blankets; the raggedy look suits the mummy theme to a "tee."


One 16-ounce package bun-size hot dogs (8 hot dogs), each halved crosswise
2 ounces Cheddar, cut into 16 thin slices
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 sheets phyllo dough
4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Ketchup, yellow mustard, barbecue sauce or your favorite dipping sauce, for serving and decorating


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut a slit in each hot dog piece and stuff with a slice of cheese. Set aside. Combine the salt, garlic powder and pepper in a small bowl.

Working with one sheet of phyllo at a time and keeping the rest covered under a damp towel or paper towels, lay a phyllo sheet on a large cutting board or counter and lightly brush with melted butter. Lightly sprinkle with some of the spice mix and fold in half lengthwise. Brush the top with more melted butter and cut into 1/2-inch-thick strips. Using 2 pieces of stuffed hot dogs per phyllo sheet, wrap half of the strips around each piece of hot dog to create a mummy look. Leave a small section of hot dog exposed towards the top so it looks like the top part of the face peeking out from the phyllo wrappings. Don't worry about frayed edges or tears-- it will add to the mummy look.

Place on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with the remaining phyllo, melted butter, spice mix and hot dogs. Remelt the butter if it cools down too much while forming the mummies.

Bake until the phyllo is crisp and golden brown, about 25 minutes. If desired, dot ketchup or mustard eyes on each mummy using a toothpick and serve with extra sauces for dipping.
