This is a simple time taker-upper for kids to do.  Find a rock.  Smooth is better.  Take your crayons to it and color very very hard to really coat the rock.  Heat oven to 350 deg.  place rocks on old pan and place in oven, keep watch on them and remove when the crayon has melted and is wet/shiny.  The bigger the rock the longer it takes.   I'm not sure what to do with them when they are done, paper weight or whatnot but it occupies the kiddo's for a bit anyway.

Grape Salad

I realize this picture is not very good but I wanted to share this recipe with you.

It comes from my husbands family (Thanks B for the recipe) and my daughter fell in love with it. So when we had to take a pot luck item recently and I had a bag of grapes that we needed to use it fit the bill. It is easy enough that my daughter made it herself. We left out a little sugar to make it not as sweet. We also only had red grapes on hand.

Grape Salad

2 lbs green grapes
2 lbs red grapes
8 oz sour cream
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla


1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts

Remove grapes from vine and wash. beat sour cream, softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Add grapes and fold together. Mix brown sugar and walnuts and sprinkle over the top of the grapes. Refrigerate a few hours or overnight.
