I usually end up making cheese straws when I make pastry and there's some left afterwards, I just add in some grated cheese and eat them whilst the quiche or pie is cooking (a Very Naughty Habbit!) hehe

These sound very easy to make and good...I'll have to try and bake some.

Good luck with your talk with the school principal and I hope that you get something done about the bully's at school.

I really loved the Christian one liners...I've seen them before, but it's always nice to read them again & again.

Thanks for stopping in to visit my blog and the picture of the puppy and the praying mantis were sent to me in an email, so I don't know what kind of puppy that is...only that it's a cute puppy.
