Grape Salad

Once in a while, I get a serious craving for this grape salad.
Sometimes I will make up a batch just for me.
I keep it in the refrigerator and eat it alone or pair it with chicken salad for my idea of a perfect meal.

You will need:
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
8 oz. sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups red grapes
4 cups green grapes

Topping
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup pecans

 Begin by washing and pulling grapes.
On this day, I only made a small patch for myself and only used red grapes.

In a large mixing bowl, cream the cheese and add the sugar.  I went ahead and added the brown sugar to my mixture, rather than making a topping.  Add the sour cream and vanilla.

 Mix well.

 Stir in grapes and pecans.
You can save back the pecans and use in the topping.
I keep pecans in my freezer year round.
This makes them easy to grab and add to any recipe.

Refrigerate when complete.
This salad will keep for several days and is delicious!

Did Someone Say Pie???

 This past Monday, we not only celebrated my brother's birthday, we also celebrated my Sewing Sister's win at our local Pie Contest.  
We celebrated by asking her to bake her winning pies for our lunch!  Ha

 She won first on both her pies; one for fruit pie and the other for cream pie.
It was the cherry pie that won the Grand Champion prize.

 I love this picture of her coconut cream pie.
Trust me, it was delicious.

This cherry pie tasted even better than it looks.
I don't know that I have ever seen a pie that looked any more perfect!
Thanks, Sewing Sister, for sharing your talent with us!

Lenten Roses

President's Day is the day that my sisters and I make our yearly trip to my brother's home.
Even though it is February, his back yard is spectacular with flowers.

Not only were the flowers in his yard spectacular, but it was great to see how quickly he walked outside, cut a few stems of Lenten Roses, and produced this arrangement for the table.
