Reindeer Treats

I saw these on Pinterest and will be doing these with the kids. Aren't they adorable?

 I was not able to link to the original source, but you should be able to get the idea by just looking at the picture! Nutter butter cookies dipped in chocolate on a stick...simple and yummy!

Black-eyed Pea Stew

We recently went to a finger food supper and someone brought this delicious soup! I knew I had to get this receipe from the man who brought is definitely a keeper!

1 package (16 ounces) smoked sausage links, halved lengthwise and sliced
1 small onion, chopped
2 cans (15 ounces each) black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1 cup beef broth
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1-1/2 cups frozen corn, thawed

In a Dutch oven or soup kettle, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.

Stir in the peas, tomatoes, tomato sauce, broth and seasonings.

Cook and stir for 10-12 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Stir in corn; cook 5 minutes longer or until heated through.
