Spiritually Thinking

I LOVE THIS QUOTE!! To often this time of year we become so busy we forget the most important things in this life which is 1) our relationship with God and 2) our relationship with our families. I hope that none of us ever become to busy to remember what matters most.

Cranberry salsa over cream cheese recipe

I don't know about you but my calendar is already filling up for November and December. There are work parties, church parties, children parties, ugly sweater parties you name it and we will party about it. I like to always take something to each of these parties and one of my favorite recipes is a Cranberry Salsa over Cream Cheese. It is so delicious and so easy to make. I thought I would share the recipe with you.

  • 12 ozs cranberries (fresh or frozen) chopped I use my ninja to chop them up.
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 11/4 cup green onions chopped
  • 1- 2  small jalapeno peppers take the seeds out and  and mince
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons grated fresh Ginger
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper
Mix all the above ingredients in a glass bowl. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours before serving (best if made the day before).  To serve  pour over the top of 2 bricks of cream cheese 8oz. I only serve half at a time in case it does not all get eaten at once.  We eat it with wheat thins, club crackers or pita chips.

So delicious. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

Happy Fall Y'All

It is officially fall here in Dallas, and I am loving it. I would like to say the temperature is cooling off, but lets face it, its Dallas and it is hot here until December but it is high 80F and that is definitely a break from the 100+ temps and heat index.

I have a business making and selling signs and here is my latest. I love this. It looks so cute on my porch fits right in with Texas.

To make this sign I used:

1 -  2x4 cut into 6 pieces  20" long
1 - 1x2 cut into 2 pieces 15" long.
Wood Stain
Wood Screws
Vinyl Decal

This is such a fun and easy craft to make. I hope that you enjoy making it as much as I did.
