It's Coming Down

Yes, you guessed it...the SNOW is falling all around. We are in a Winter Storm Warning for the next 2 days. What a way to finally see the white stuff. I am not sure I am ready for the crazy driving of the wintertime but it does make it seem a bit more like Christmastime.

The Snow is so light and fluffy! The kind you like to catch on your tongue. (OK well my kids like to) We are also in for some colder temperatures, way colder. I could do without that part.

Last year one of my buddies...who lives in sunny Arizona introduced me to what became an obsession..

Making Cyber Snowflakes

What a way to use your computer. It is so fun and you can see others that people make as well. The Cliche no two are alike really comes to life when you see the transformations of adding a few clicks to a cyber piece of paper. So wherever you are stop and make a quick snowflake, it might bring back some memories or get you more in the mood for the holidays.

Need a Snow Day?

Mothering Hilary Style

Oh Hilary you are the best...Thanks for sharing your time and talents with us!

I'm sharing your cheeseball recipe too...

Hilary Weeks' Cheeseball recipe

"Before you read any further you have to know that this is the BEST cheeseball in the entire universe and you have to be committed to its success. You have to use the right ingredients. You have to make it with love. You have to oooh and aahh while you eat it and NEVER, NEVER let it go to waste. Eat every last morsel. Can you commit to that? Okay, then here is the recipe."

The World's Best Cheeseball

1 - package (8 oz) cream cheese
1 - 5 oz jar of Kraft Old English Cheese
1 - 5 oz jar of Kraft Blue Roka Cheese
2 - chopped green onions
1 -2 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
Chopped pecans

Combine cheeses, onions and sauce in a mixer. Make sure they are well incorportated (no little clumpies)
Shape into a ball on a plate and cover with pecans.

I like to eat it with Wheat Thins, but use your good judgement. I trust you.
The Kraft cheeses are ususally in the cracker isle, sometimes near Velveeta. (Don't let that scare you!!)
