Here is a link to a craft similar to mine.
Here are your supplies:
One piece of typing or copy paper.
Here is the video:
1. fold a letter sized sheet of paper lengthwise to get a center line.
2. fold two corners into the center line.
3. Turn the paper over and fold those corners in half.
4. Fold the pointy nose back on itself to form the snub nose. You might try folding the nose underneath, but both ways work well.
5. Fold the whole plane lengthwise.
6. Finally, fold the wings in half to complete the bulldog dart.
Thanks for reading this blog. Have fun making the best airplane in the world. Share it with your friends! Bye!

1 small freshly prepared pumpkin
1 1/2 c. evaporated milk, undiluted (made my own for the first time google it)
1/4 c. molasses
1/2 c. truvia stevia
1/2 tsp. salt
1 table spoon pumpkin pie seasoning
3 eggs, beaten slightly
For Pie: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix well fresh pumpkin with remaining ingredients. Pour into pie shell. Bake 15 minutes at 425 degrees, then reduce heat to 350 degrees. Bake another 45 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
Recycling tip and money saving tip of the day!
install plastic hooks upside down on the outside of your trash can and use those plastic grocery bags from the store in your kitchen trash. I put in two on each side plus I hotglued a couple of clips from skirt hangers to each end of the inside to hold in the bag to the side and then I used a small plastic skirt hanger and clipped each bag to the other in the middle. Works great and you can have little helpers get the trash out easier too. Its not so heavy for them in the small bags and they feel big. I guess you could just use clothes line clips or other clips you may have hanging around the house as well. God Bless!
Heat your oven to 350
Make up some pizza dough Two recipes of it will be good. Use the recipe of your choice, I have a simple one that I use whole wheat dough with and its made with baking powder and not yeast there fore it is faster on days like today when you are baking for Thanksgiving.
Take your dough flattened onto a extra large cutting board or kitchen surface and grab a small mouthed glass jar or other small biscuit cutter and cut out lots of small circles. I let Zoi girl cut some of these she likes to bake with Mom.
Place each circle in the bottom of sprayed muffin tins and top with half a spoon of sauce
Then top with a generous pinch of cheese and other ingredient or only cheese (that's what we did) I let my little Zena do a little of this she likes to be included.
Then I added another circle on the top.
Place the dough in your tins I made 24. Put them into the oven on the center rack. Cook for about 10 to 12 minutes until brown on top. Enjoy!

Pie crust or pizza dough
tomato sauce, picante, pizza sauce, marinara, or diced tomato
shredded cheese of your choice
meat of your choice-or all veggies-we like turkey pepperoni (make sure to pre-cook any raw meat or dence veggies)
and a little yogurt of course for dipping
one egg beaten
Cut your dough into triangles. Place on a plate and put into the refrigerator until you need them. Mix all your ingredients together in a bowl not including the dough egg and the yogurt.Now you can ask your sweet son or daughter to bring you the plate of dough from the refrigerator.Then dip a couple of fingers in your egg and apply to the edges of the dough triangles to work like glue on your pockets. Add the ingredients in your mixing bowl and top with another triangle. Last bring up another trusty assistant to fetch a fork and teach them the art to lightly pressing the sides of the dough to seal it shut. Ask you sweety to bring you a cookie sheet and place your triangles on the sprayed cookie sheet and cook until golden brown about 10 to 12 minutes. Be-careful its hot wait a little while before eating.

You have probably heard of many of the health benefits of yogurt. It is an alternative to antibiotic drugs. It helps repopulate the gut with healthy flora and the healthy flora eliminate some of the unhealthy flora that come from environment and stress. People with digestion problems and elimination problems have seen its benefits. Autistic people who have a constant battle with their flora and yeast overgrowth. People with high stress occupations. I believe everyone can benefit from this powerhouse! So I have included here some great ways to incorporate yogurt into your everyday life in ways that most will not even mind if they don't care for it as a snack.
Every time you have a recipe calling for sour cream use yogurt instead. Here are some ideas:
* Sour cream - on potatoes and on burritos, this is one of the best ways to eat it because it doesn't get to hot and kill the good bacteria.
*Ranch dip or ranch dressing - this also eliminates the added sugar when buying them redi- made, just pick up a tub of plain yogurt and a package of dressing or dip and combine. Its super fast!
*Last of all, there is the breads and desserts: cheese cake and Bananas and Cream in bread.
I've even used yogurt and honey to drizzle over cakes with a little food coloring.
I just found the Yoplait yogurt page and it is a great site to try some new recipes. Try it and see. Good plain yogurt has much to offer.
