Tuesday Tidbits #162 CELEBRATION

Sweet Man’s Birthday

Hello Friends… It’s time for a CELEBRATION! Sweet Man had a birthday! Come join us. I baked him his favorite pie. Raisin Pie! It’s delicious and he loves it and you will too if you love Raisin Pie.

My Homemade Crust recipe came from a dear friend’s Mother. The secret ingredient is Crisco! The raisin filling recipe came from The Southern Lady Cooks.

And of course I had to make a No-Churn Rum Raisin Ice Cream to go with it! It was delightful!

I followed BellyFull.net homemade No-Churn Rum Raisin Ice Cream recipe. Have you ever made No-Churn Homemade Ice Cream before? It’s easy and comes out wonderfully delicious! I have made fruited No-Churns and they come out quite well too!

I put it in a plastic container and it freezes well!

Don’t worry… I’m still trying to eat healthy but Birthdays only come around the sun every 365 days so there is always cause for a Yummy Celebration!

Happy Birthday Sweet Man!

Another Celebration!

But this Celebration was for me!

Our family plays Fantasy Football with each other.

Well guess what??? Miss Nancy won First Place… not only this year but last year as well! 2 years in a row!


From my Fantasy Football App!

I love football and adding this Fantasy Football makes it even more fun! 🏈🙂🏈

More Celebrations!

The first rose of 2022 bloomed!

It was small but beautiful!

A day out in the desert is a day of celebration!

I loved this cactus! And I needed a break!
How about those Thorns?!

Hope your days get a chance to be filled with CELEBRATION!

      Have a great week ahead my friend. And celebrate the special moments in life.

  1. Happy birthday to your Sweet Man 🎉 The pie looks delicious. I don’t think I have ever tasted raisin pie. Adding the raisin no churn ice cream made it a raisin birthday celebration. Congrats on your fantasy football win! The cactus is amazing. Happy Tuesday, my friend!

    1. I am very proud of my Fantasy Football Win! (AGAIN!) 😉

    1. Thank you for the Birthday Wishes for Sweet Man. And the pie is delicious! We enjoyed each morsel.
      Thank you for the visit. Enjoy your Tuesday!

  2. Happy Tuesday Nancy! And Happy Birthday to Sweet Man! I have never heard of raisin pie, but I do love easy homemade no churn ice cream, yummy stuff! It looks like you’re having a wonderful January, beautiful nature photos and congrats on winning Fantasy Football 2 years in a row!

  3. You have so much to celebrate. Happy Birthday to you husband and congratulations to you on your win! I’m sure the birthday “boy” loved his dessert!

  4. Happy Birthday to your Sweet Man Nancy! I always love your pictures of the desert plant life. Congratulations on winning your fantasy football too. I’ve never heard of anyone ever winning one and especially not two years in a row! That pie!!!!!! I have never heard of, let alone tried, Raisin Pie. Your crust and the pie look amazing!

    1. I finally found a pie crust that makes a good flaky crust! Hope you give raisin pie a try. It’s quite delicious!
      Enjoy your week Diane!

  5. Birthday pies, homemade ice-cream, fantasy football and more 🥰 what a week. I won the fantasy football at work (years ago) and they accused me of cheating, of seeking help from Dean 🤣🤣🤣 but he defended my honour by coming last. Happy week to you, Nancy.

  6. Happy Birthday to your husband! That pie is beautiful! Looks delicious as does the homemade ice cream. Nice celebration.
    Enjoy your week.

  7. Sorry Nancy, I am a little late in responding but I am sure you made Sweet Man’s birthday special. The raisin pie made me think of my grandfather who lived to be 99 years old and he loved Raisin pie and he ate it every chance he could.

    I love your pics and I share your love for sports. I am the biggest fan of the KC Chiefs, the Kansas City Royals and the Kansas Jayhawks. I may live in Florida but the old saying is true…..”you can take the girl out of Kansas, but you will never take Kansas out of the girl.” Congrats on your fantasy football win two years in a row. That is a special skill.

    Hugs my sweet friend!

    1. Oh Kari it was so good to hear from you! I am so glad to hear you enjoyed this post.
      And The Kansas City Chiefs play today… I’m sure you will be cheering!
      Thank you for the visit… and take good care my friend.

  8. Happy birthday to your sweet husband! I had a birthday Saturday so I’m celebrating, too! And congratulations on your win! How exciting!!

Thank You So Much... for sharing your kind words. I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your thoughts.
