Delicious Dip

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

We had our neighbors over last night for a small Christmas party. I tried a new dip I saw on tv while I was exercising. It was a HIT!

Here’s the recipe:

1 pkg soft cream cheese
1 C ricotta cheese
1 C green olives w/ pimentos
1 clove garlic, grated

Put it all in a food processor and blend together. Pour in bowl and top with chopped nuts. I used cashews
Serve with crackers.

YUMMY! and sooooo EASY!

White Christmas

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

It started raining today and the snow is melting…ohno!

We’ve been in Idaho for 3 years and we still haven’t had a white Christmas. I thought we might get lucky this year, but we’ll see.

Any snow in your area?

The Perfect Christmas Tree

Our tree is bigger than expected
The tree is bigger than expected. Although we got the tree up & trimmed, it fell over before Steve returned home. We tied it to the curtain rod until Steve could fix it for us.
