Let It Snow!

Is this not the cutest little snowman to ever visit The Farm?!?  
Here he's staked out over a Swiss  & Green Onion cheese spread that's been known to bring rave reviews from family, co-workers, and even a three-year-old grandson.

Combine 3 cups (12 ounces) finely shredded Swiss cheese with  1/4 c chopped green onions, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp white or cayenne   pepper.  Mix in just enough mayonnaise to hold it all together--about 1/4 to 1/3 cup. Serve with your favorite cracker.   The grandson's favorite is Multi-Grain Club Crackers :)

Christmas Open House 2012

The Cinnamon Cranberry Punch was a hit.  So were Shannon's cookies and muffins--especially the red velvet!

Cinnamon Cranberry Punch

Steep 4 regular tea bags in 1 quart of water for five minutes.  Add 2 cups sugar and 1 cup red hots.  STIR!

Add another quart of water, two 64 oz bottles of cranberry juice, and 2 cups of pineapple/orange juice.

Serve cold for punch.  Or serve warm with a cinnamon stick.  And if you share with your friends, they'll ask you for the recipe :)
