A Food Post and a Valentine's Day Card!

Happy Valentine's Day! 
happy V-Day!-2 
 I am sharing a Valentine's Day card. It's a simple pocket card. Stamps are from Fresh Squeezed Stamps. I made this a while ago and almost forgot to is the perfect chance!

Are you making anything yummy for your love ones?  Well, it's been a while since I do a food post. Other than being a full time card-maker, I also run a 24/7 kitchen in my house! These Mushroom Turnovers have always been an old favorite in my household. I had the recipe for years! Once in while, I will make it for special you can see, it's a bit tedious to make, but when I do make them, I just love it (my tummy loves them even more!)!  
Cream Cheese pastry
Cream cheese (8 0z)
Butter or margarine (1/2 Cup)
All purpose flour (1 1/2 cup)
Butter/margerine (3 tab)
Large onion (1, finely chopped)
Fresh mushroom ( 1/2 lb, chopped)
All purpose flour (2 tab)
Salt (1 tsp)
Pepper (1/4 tsp) Thyme (1/4 tsp)
Sour cream (1/4 Cup)
Egg (1, beaten)  
1. Combine butter, onion, saute about 5 minutes
2. Add mushroom, seasoning
3. Add flour, sour cream, stir until thickened
4. Set aside and let cool
5. Roll pastry fairly thin, Cut into 3 inch rounds. Place 1 tsp filling in the center of each circle
6. Dampen outer half edge with beaten egg, fold over and press edges together with fork
7. Brush tops with beaten egg. Bake in 450 F (230 C) for about 10 minute or until golden brown.

My Mushroom Turnovers were devoured before I thought of taking the final photo! But you get the idea....they are golden brown and yummy!
Sour Cream and Beef Turnovers  My family loves these!
