Southern Scenes?

Submitted by Christi

Okay, usually not a lot of snow in the South, but this year is a bit strange. We have had more snow than I know what to do with. Fortunately, some others in the area did know what to do with it.




And, something with a litle red!

We don’t have snow often, but fortunately,  when we do have it, we have fun with it!

Today’s Lagniappe:  Love Bites
Saw this on Home Made Simple and just love this idea for Valentine’s Day.12 large red globe grapes

1 log (4 ounces) goat cheese
1/2 cup shelled pistachios, finely chopped

  1. Cut each grape in half. Cut a small slice off the end of each half to prevent it from tipping.
  2. Using a small melon baller or a tiny spoon, scoop out any seeds and enough flesh to create a slight indentation.
  3. Cut the goat cheese log into 24 equal pieces and shape each piece into a ball.
  4. Press one side of each ball of goat cheese into the chopped pistachios.
  5. Place the cheese in each grape half, pistachio-side up. Press gently to adhere. Serve on a small dish or a small decorative cake stand for an elegant effect.

Make Ahead Tip: Grape Cups can be prepared several hours in advance. Refrigerate in an airtight container, until ready.

    Whoa! Amazing snow”men” — wonderful. I have no idea how someone accomplishes that kind of detail with snow –mine always look like big ugly lumpy things.
    Very cute!

    Being a gal from an area where the snow does fly in the winter time, I think you did a wonderful job. What an imagination. How many people did you have to help you?
