Really Good Holiday Dip

I am a girl of not so many talents, but one thing I know how to do really well is eat really good food.

And this Cheese Fondue from Rachie is a family favorite - my big kids have fond memories of eating this dip at her cubicle when I worked at Franklin Covey (the first time) and they ask for it every year.


Cheese Fondue/Dip
4 packages of softened cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
4 tbsp milk
1 tsp of garlic powder
1/2 tsp pepper
14 oz of chick beef (she suggests Armor Star brand) I use cooked & chopped bacon
4 tbsp of minced onion


Combine ingredients, mix well. Bake in 9x13 pan for 30 minutes at 350. Serve in fondue dish or small crock pot with sourdough or french bread.

I am so happy this is part of your family tradition. It makes me even happier to know you think of me every time you make it. We made it this year and I ate most of it. Love you! Merry Christmas!

Can you make it and bring it to my next potluck party? Maybe the Bachelor Finale? I totally would make it but what the heck is chick beef? First it's St. Elmo's Fire, now Chick Beef? My entire comment has sentences ending in ?

Snowball Cookies

[image]
It snowed this week. And though we don't have many family traditions, one that we started when we became a family was to make Snowball Cookies on the first snowy day of the season. And since we like cookies so much, we usually make them on other random, snowy days, too. They help ease my pain and anxiety over winter. You know-- carbs. 
There is nothing better than Snowball Cookies and hot chocolate on a snowy day.
Snowball Cookies 1 c. butter 1/2 c. confectioners sugar 2 tsp. vanilla 2 c. sifted flour 1 c. chocolate chips 1 c. chopped pecans (an option I don't use) Additional confectioners sugar (for rolling)
Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add remaining ingredients, mix. Use a teaspoonful (I use a small ice cream scoop) of dough and roll into small ball. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly and roll in confectioners sugar. (I roll them twice.)

Christmas 2010

Christmas 2010 (I am in an honest enough mood to admit that this is not my favorite picture of my kids. And it was $15.) 
I promised Aaron that I wouldn't write about how this was our worst Christmas ever, so I won't.  So let's remember these things:

1. The conversation I had with Charlie just days before Christmas ... said in the midst of grumpy, overly hyper kids throwing Legos at each other

Me: You know what I want for Christmas? I want kids that will get along! Charlie: Do you mean new kids, or us? 
2. Having my dad sleepover on Christmas Eve and spend all of Christmas day with us- something he never does.

3. Fun parties and dinners with friends, family, and neighbors. Including our very first non-kid New Year's Eve celebration. Sign me up for that next year!

4. Visiting the Santa at Gateway Mall that was  grumpy and missing most of his bottom teeth.  He went on to scold me about what my kids had told him they want for Christmas- all Nintendo Dsi's.  And whi…

Let Us Eat Cake

We have some important events to celebrate at our house this weekend!

Today is Aaron's 44th birthday. I honestly thank the heavens for that man every day of my life, so I'm especially looking forward to celebrating him today! Although, I still need to go buy the presents. (Busy week.)

Today, we are also celebrating Jack's Preschool Graduation. Since he has a late birthday, I have always planned on waiting until he was 6 to start kindergarten. But now that he is finished with preschool, it's obvious we are both ready for him to start kindergarten next year. He's all registered, and we have his 5 year old "shots" appointment next month. And while I'm a little bit sad that our baby is growing up (in just the blink of an eye he'll be graduating from high school) I'm also excited to move onto the next phase of life.

Of course, Monday we'll celebrate a rainy Memorial Day, and Tuesday will mark 10 years of marriage for us.  TEN years.  Someti…
