IMG_2159

Hey guys, new post on the RV Oilers website. I have had a few of you asking if there is a way to subscribe to it, and sadly, the answer is no.  That’s the only thing so far, that I don’t care for on the weebly website. {which our graphic designer selected for this project}

The BEST thing you can do is come “Like” and “Follow” us on our facebook page: the 4 little Traveling Fergusons, link is http://www.facebook.com/rvoilers, so you can see when a post goes live.
I won’t always come here and post the link, but for a season would be happy to offer that until you all get accustomed to the new system.  :)

Now, come on over for day 2 of our home tour!🙂

Teacher Appreciation Week

  Teacher Appreciation Week is typically the first week of May, about a week and a half before school gets out.  I think it’s to give those poor teachers SOMETHING to hang on to while they push to finish strong!  Tee hee, God bless our educators! Winking smile

  Dale and I try to be extra thoughtful to the teachers at our kids’ school, because they are taking a major pay cut to be at a Christian School, teaching our children about their wonderful Father in Heaven.  And not just during teachers appreciation week, all year long.  You would be amazed what an encouraging card and $5 gift card can do to brighten a teachers day, or how about a slice of that homemade pie you made last night, or their favorite soda and snack.  Simple things that mean so much.

  I shop Zulily and Jane specifically for small gifts/tokens of appreciation for this week of school.  I try to make sure they are fun, functionable, useable gifts, and not just room décor or apple themed.  I think they get tired of that stuff after awhile!

Here is what we did last year:

Monday, Desk “Equipment”

  “May he EQUIP you with all you need for doing his will….” Hebrews 13:21

IMG_9455IMG_9451

Tuesday, Farm fresh, free range Eggs from the Ferguson Farm

“He is the giver of all good things….” James 1:17

IMG_9456

Wednesday, Personalized Notebook

“Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.  Bind them on your fingers, write them on the tablet (notebook) of your heart.” Proverbs 7:2-3

IMG_9466IMG_9469

Thursday, Groceries

“You crown the year with a bountiful harvest….” Psalm 69:11a

IMG_9457

Friday, Personalized Bejeweled Whistle

“Make a joyful noise…” From Psalm 100

IMG_9460

  I hope this gets your creative juices flowing and you can think of some neat ideas for your teachers this year!

  Other years we have made school colored t-shirt scarves, a ready to bake meal delivered to the last week of school, a homemade pie certificate, banana bread loaves, Cherry Limeades, and gift cards.

  Blessings to all those teachers out there, hope you feel loved and appreciated! And not just on Teacher’s Appreciation week, either!

Hugs, T

Rueben Sandwich casserole

St. Patty’s day is coming up, and whether ye be Irish or not, I think you will love this recipe!

I am a sucker for a Reuben Sandwich.  My mom makes the most amazing sandwich I have ever tasted, her secret is a special homemade salad dressing for it.  But alas, I do not hold the secret recipe, so we will make do with store-bought this time!

This Reuben recipe, uses all the regular Reuben ingredients, but instead of making 6 individual sandwiches, it’s layered, casserole style!  Tastes exactly the same, butter toasted bread and all!

Reuben Sandwich Casserole

reuben sandwich casserole

Ingredients
  • 4 pounds Corned Beef Brisket
  • ½ cups Thousand Island Salad Dressing
  • 1 can (16 Oz Can) Sauerkraut, Rinsed And Drained
  • 12 slices Swiss Cheese
  • 10 slices Rye Bread, Cut Into Cubes
  • ½ cups Butter, Melted
Preparation

Place corned beef brisket in an oven safe dish with 2 inches of water in the bottom. Cover and cook for 4 hours at 325F. Remove foil for the last 15 minutes of baking time.  Leave oven on for baking casserole, just up it to 350.

Allow to cool a bit, then place meat on cutting board and cube it.

Sprinkle all but 1 cup beef cubes in an extra deep 9×13 baking dish, I used Pampered Chef’s Deep Dish Rectangular Baker.

Drizzle at least 1/2 cup of Thousand Island salad dressing over the top.

Cover the dressing layer with slices of Swiss cheese, then rinsed and drained Sauerkraut.

Melt 1/2 cup butter and toss bread cubes in it before topping the casserole with them.

Bake casserole at 350* for 30 minutes.

Tastes best day 1, so adjust recipe according to your family size….

Enjoy!
