Recipe of the Month: Neapolitan Dirt

Oops, we just realized that it is July 12 and we haven’t published our recipe of the month!

Sorry folks, but it has been a very busy July thus far!

Anyway, with all the heat we have had we thought something cool and creamy would be ideal for this month’s recipe.  Sooooooo, we selected Neapolitan Dirt!

This refreshing dessert is sure to be a crowd pleaser;  and hear it is!  Enjoy!


Neapolitan Dirt

Oh. My. Gosh! Recently I was making Dirt and opened my cabinet to get the normal vanilla pudding it’s made with BUT a box of this new strawberry cream pudding that I ran across at Wal-Mart fell out.  I thought I would try the strawberry instead of the vanilla and it TURNED OUT AWESOME!  You have got to try this!


1 package Oreos

1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter, melted

1 – 12 ounce French Vanilla cool whip

1 – 8 ounce cream cheese, softened

1/2 to 3/4 cup confectioner sugar

1 3.5 ounce box Strawberry Cream instant pudding

1 cup milk

1 cup heavy whipping cream


Melt butter in a 9x7x2.5 inch dish.  Place 1/2 package of the Oreos in a food processor.  Process until Oreos are crumbs.  Pour Oreos in with the butter and stir until moistened.  Make a crust with the Oreos.  In a large mixing bowl add cool whip, cream cheese and sugar.  Mix in high-speed until mixture fluffy and free of lumps.  Pour over Oreos and smooth out.  In the same mixing bowl, add pudding, milk and whipping cream and mix on high-speed until pudding is thickened.  Pour over cream cheese mixture and spread it out.  Crush up remaining Oreos and sprinkle over top of pudding.  Chill for about 15 minutes or until ready to serve.

YUM, YUM!  If you haven’t tried this yet you are missing out!

Which came first the Hen or the Egg?

I am pretty sure only God could answer the question! But nonetheless, it doesn’t keep people from asking! Guess you might be wondering why I would even bring up the subject! You see, hubby and I have bought us some chickens and roosters; he even built a chicken coop and feeder! What a talented man I am married too!

It seems we well be adding to our brood this weekend. Hubby has informed me that we will be visiting a place where we can swap and/or buy chickens/roosters. Well, since we have one too many roosters we are going to take our rooster and swap it for a chicken and I am sure that this swap will certainly prompt the purchasing of more chickens. One of the great things about having chickens is we are getting fresh eggs on a daily basis. Sometimes we get 8; sometimes we get 10. We are getting enough eggs that we are able to keep several for ourselves and share the others with family and friends. I have also had to get creative on how to use this abundance of farm fresh eggs so keep checking back for egg recipes; I am also open to any egg recipes that anyone would like to share!!

Now for the cow so we can have fresh milk!!
