Winter - Felker's Falls and Little Davis

A cool refreshing day to go see waterfalls.
We went to Felker's Falls first

We had seen other people posting photos of Felker's and it looked so nice and people going behind the falls so we wanted to go and see it for ourselves

Make sure you wear proper clothes and footware

When we were getting closer to the falls you have to remember there is water under the ice
and I stepped on a piece I thought was strong enough and my foot went right through into the water so I got one foot soaked.

Lucky it was not freezing and not deep.

We got behind the frozen waterfall

It can be very slippery

The view behind the falls was really cool to see
 Now heading out 

 Little Davis Falls

Bottom of Felker's
 take King St. East exit off the Red Hill Valley Parkway and follow King Street to Quigley Road. Turn right onto Quigley Road and follow it to the end.  Walk past the end of Quigley onto parkland and go straight until you reach Davis Creek. Follow the creek upstream to the base of Felker’s Falls.

Garnier Whole Blends

                 I was able to try out Coconut Water Vanilla Milk Hydrating Shampoo
Whole Blends Coconut Water Vanilla Milk Hydrating Conditioner

There are many blends to try from for your hair type and scents
and they are also paraben free

I liked the smell of the shampoo the coconut was so nice and fresh.
The conditioner had  a very nice smell too.
My hair smelled nice all day as you could smell the coconut in your hair all day and it was not over powering.

I noticed that my Husband had used the shampoo and I said I don't want you using that as I wanted it all to myself.
But  he liked the smell also. It was fresh
I would like to try more of the Whole blends products as they all sound great.

Would you like to try a free sample

Dessert- Sex In A Pan

This dessert can be made different ways when I have looked it up online.
Most use two different puddings which I think I would like to give it a try.
This is still nice this way though.
I have had this printed recipe for a long time and this is the first time I made it and we all enjoyed the taste of it.
Very easy to make but let each layer sit before doing the next as it can be hard to spread the layer over the other with out it mixing in a little.

Sex In A Pan

 1/2 box graham crumbs
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar

1 cup icing sugar
1large cream cheese
1 large cool whip
1 small cool whip
1 jello chocolate pudding mix
2 cups milk
  • Mix graham crumbs, butter and sugar and spread in 9x13 pan. Bake @350 for 10 minutes.
  • Let cool.
  • Mix (beat) cream cheese, large cool whip, icing sugar together and pour on cooled crust. Chill until ready for next layer.
  • Mix chocolate pudding with 2 cups of cold milk for a couple of minutes till thickened. Pour on top of chilled layer.
  • Chill for quite a few hours
  • Cover with small cool whip before serving.

Pecan Meltaways

This recipe I have made for many years.
It is very easy to make and they do melt in your mouth.
This recipe came from a magazine.

Give them a try. 

You might not feel they need to be rolled in sugar or you could even roll the cookies in
icing sugar if you wanted 

Pecan Meltaways

1cup (250 ml) butter at room teperature
1 cup (125 ml) granulated sugar
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla
2 1/4 cups (550 ml) all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp (1 ml) salt
3/4 cup (175 ml) finely chopped pecans

1: Preheat oven to 350F (180C). In a large bowl, beat butter with 1/2 (125ml) cup sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Beat in flour and salt until combined. Then stir in pecans until well mixed.

2: Roll into 1-inch (2.5-cm) balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets about 2 inches (5 cm) apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until cookies appear set (their colour will not change much). 
Remove cookies and cool on a rack. Pour remaining sugar in a flat dish, and while cookies are still warm, roll in sugar.

We saw the Simcoe Christmas lights last weekend and the weather was milder than most winters and no snow.
We wanted an outing as a family to enjoy the light display.
You can see more information here if you want to make a night out to see them
