Every wedding should have a “memory.” This wedding the memorable happening was when our granddaughter, Aimee, was zipping up her bridesmaid dress at the church and the zipper broke! Not good! She was literally sewn into her dress. Such a good job was done that it withstood lots of dancing and it wasn’t very easy for grandma to cut the stitches so she could take off the dress at bedtime!
Today I am sharing a recipe for a cheese spread I made to serve on crackers with the punch at the wedding reception. It's easy and tasty! Diane Watters brought it to our exercise group to serve with bagels for a birthday treat. She got the recipe from a cookbook by Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa.
Vegetable Cream Cheese Spread:
2 - 8 oz packages of cream cheese
2 Tbsp chopped fine, radishes
2 Tbsp chopped fine carrots
2 Tbsp chopped fine green onion
2 Tbsp chopped fine celery
Place room temperature cream cheese in mixer bowl, beat until smooth, then beat in veggies. Add kosher salt and black pepper to taste. Place in small bowl and chill until serving. I made this several days ahead and brought it to room temperature before serving. It will keep at least a week in the refrigerator!
This week I am going to relax and work in my flower garden! Have a great week!
