Graff Family Thanksgiving Stuffing by Sherrill

We played with this recipe for a few years until all 30+ Graff family members thought it was perfect.

3 C celery chopped (almost the entire bundle without the white parts)
1 1/2 C onion chopped  (one med size onion)
1 cube butter
20 cups bread crumbs
    mixture of 1 box mrs. cubbinsons seasoned cornbread stuffin'
1 loaf french bread, 9 pieces 7 grain bread   (both torn and dried)

1 Cup bacon cooked crispy and broken into pieces  (1 package)  (+3 T bacon grease Mark's addition)
1 Cup mushrooms chopped
1  14oz cans chicken broth

1 1/2 tsp sage
1 C parsley  (one .5 oz bottle)
1 1/2 tsp time
3/4 tsp marjoram
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp turmeric
3 tsp chicken bouillon granules

saute butter, mushrooms, onions, celery until tender add
broth and spices

place bread in large bowl
pour wet ingredients over dried bread

Put it into a crock pot to keep warm until ready to serve.

I make sure to buy new sage, time and parsley each year.  Makes a big difference.

Happy Thanksgiving

I'd like to wish my Husband Mark
a Happy Anniversary
August 25th

30 years!
So thankful to be
Married to YOU

going to stampin up leadership in orlando florida

Did you see this? 

Shelli Gardner

Dear Demonstrator Leaders:
We are excited about our Leadership Conference 2013 in Orlando, Florida! We hope you have planned to attend for this, our 25th year in business! We’d like to do something different—and helpful to you—for Leadership Conference 2013. So, we’re opening it up to everyone in your downline who sees themselves as a leader—regardless of their title! We have heard from so many of you that you are trying to light a fire under members of your downline. Let us help! The motivation and inspiration they will gain, not to mention the opportunity to mingle with you as they receive invaluable training, will help them set and achieve new goals.
How can we do it? Although about the same number of leaders registered this year as last year, we have reserved a larger venue which allows us to open leadership to all who wish to gather with us. We know this is late-breaking information, but we needed to assess our registration numbers before offering this option. Registration for demonstrators at all title levels will open Monday, November 5, beginning at 7:00 am (MT).
Do you have some in your downline who will benefit from attending leadership? Please be sure to extend an invitation to them. You will want to clarify that this event is different from convention: that we’ll be focusing on leadership and business training. As indicated by the agenda, there will not be a Make & Take (instead, you’ll get to take and make your projects at home), and we do not provide translation services at leadership. When we post the current update this Monday, November 5, we’ll be sure to send that same message so your downline members know what to expect.
We are excited to partner with you in helping your potential leaders rise to the occasion. See you soon in Orlando!
Stampin’ Up!®

I hope you get to go to leadership
2013 will be held at the West Concourse of the
Orange County Convention Center, 9800 International Drive

May God bless you and your family and your business,
Sherrill Graff

Selling Stampin Up products is how I earn a living

When you buy supplies from me 
you help pay my household bills

please go to my website if you want to purchase stamps,
 paper or other fun stuff

Stampin Up demonstrators earn 20% in instant income on every purchase
an additional 20% in free goods when they host their own party
and 10% in great reward points that we can use to purchase product 
(similar to frequent flyer miles) 

Then if your sales are good you can earn even more in volume rebates.
Most demonstrators who sell a lot of product 
earn an additional 5-18% in volume rebates.

Join Stampin' Up! In Your Way!

A camera, a couple, a Tahoe and a day in Northern Nevada

Up at 5 am

Caliente Nevada Sunrise

We saw beautiful colors

We saw trains 

We saw a Tranchella

We climbed hills, and more hills

We drove a on a lot of dirt roads

and looked for deer 

We are on the higest mountain around 

we saw beautiful views

We saw wild horses

and plenty of cows

and a beautiful sunset

but we did NOT see ANY deer in Mark's Hunt area

not even a doe.

He has one more week to try again. 

May God bless you and your family,
Sherrill Graff
