Latest Trolls!

You know what I haven’t posted about in a while? My beautiful troll collection! While visiting Jordan’s family in Wisconsin we made the drive out to Mt. Horeb to see the Troll Way! In addition to taking a picture of over 30 troll works of art we did some troll shopping and I learned about a kind of troll I did not know about!

We walked into the Norwegian import place and there were trolls everywhere! At first I thought they were all Nyform but they didn’t all look like it so I asked and the ladies were like “You must really know your trolls” and then educated me on all the brands and styles of Norwegian troll statues. I can’t remember the name of the brands I bought but I saved it somewhere…

Found this beauty at the antique store in Cedarburg. It’s got the old style “Thomas Dam” and says “U.S Foreign Pats. Pending in Denmark.” That may make it the oldest in my collection.

Original hair, original outfit, decent shape.

Another antique store find. It’s a necklace but I can’t find any info about it.

Old calendar art. The nice ladies at the store gave it to me for free since I was making such a big purchase!

More free art. I love this one. It makes me think of the “Katie Kar” gas powered car my dad built me.

Hey Look, I Cooked Something! Broccoli Casserole

I’m tired of tracking down the right recipe every time I try to make this so I am posting it here with my variation. Jordan told me to get a recipe book like a normal person but I would probably just lose it.

1. Regular sized bag of baby broccoli florets.
2. 1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
3. 1 cup of milk
4. 1/2 lb of Velveeta  (or whatever you have left over from nacho dip)
5. 3 cups cooked rice
6. Enough shredded sharp cheddar cheese to cover the top.

1. Spray a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray and preheat oven to 350°F
2. Cook broccoli in boiling water for about ten minutes or until almost tender; drain very well.
3. Mix all ingredients and place in baking dish.
4. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
4. Bake for 25 minutes.

Rice cooker note:  If you lose the little cup that comes with the rice cooker, like we have, it equals 3/4 of a cup.
