When it comes to a holiday spread or, perhaps, a party of friends, cheese trays are an easy accompaniment for appetizers and snacks.
Here’s a tip to take them over the edge and be the talk of the party.
COOKIE CUTTERS AND CANDY MOLDS.
Use the cookie cutters of any shape (leaves for fall, footballs for the SuperBowl, bunnies for Easter – you’re only limited by your imagination!)
Use them to cut the cheese…er, on the table that is! OR
Coarsely chop (if your cheese isn’t already grated) and place in micro-wave safe measuring cup (or melt fondue style on the stove…)
When cheese is melted and pourable, pour into the candy molds.
Refrigerate for about 20 minutes to set. Remove from the molds by flexing the mold.
Cheese is a dairy product. You’ll want to refrigerate it until serving.
Remember, type of cheese and pattern of cookie cutter or candy mold is only limited by your imagination. HOW CHEESY!!
Excuse me, Sir. Visiting hours will be over soon.
The nurse standing next to me was earnest in blue. The cheery matching floral uniform top belied the antiseptic smell of chemistry and the otherwise thin line between life and death. I didn’t realize how much energy I was expending upon this decision until my feverish fingers felt the shock of cold metal as they surrounded the handle to the entrance of the patient’s room
Filly was enthralled. She had been honored to be sent by her school on a special expedition to the Northern parts. She took her best blanket and left with the Appaloosa, the English Mare and the American Buffalo. The animals were led to a fairyland in the North where it was veeeeerrrrrry, veeeerrrrrrrry cold, but veeeeeerrrrry, veeeeerrrrry worth the journey. Read more »
Filly knew that Christmas was coming and she would be far away from her own Sunset Meadow and the traditions of the horses there. But she was eager to share what she had always done with her new found friends and to learn of their traditions in return. Only a small part of the Chinese population is Christian, as Christianity is not an officially sanctioned religion in China. Therefore, Spring Festival becomes a greater holiday than the celebration of Christmas. Chinese Christians are the main proponents of Christmas.
The Chinese make paper lanterns to decorate their homes. Trees are expensive and not often used, but if they are, they are a Tree of Light adorned with paper chains, paper flowers and paper lanterns. These trees are usually artificial. Friends and relatives give each other red envelopes containing lucky money as a gift for the Chinese New Year. Although, not to be outdone, if foreigners are celebrating then students and teachers alike will go out of their way to outdo each other with the ‘best, most precious’ gift. So since you all are out doing your Christmas shopping, I thought I’d enlighten you to what you can expect from your Chinese friends:
Filly had acclimated quite well to her new world. She became a show horse that was paraded at every available opportunity and forced to perform simple circus tricks in addition to her regular duties. Filly found herself quite exhausted, yet she did what she was told.

Filly was cold! It was cold during the daytime and it was cold during the night time. Biting cold!! Not enough hay or blankets could warm her. It was about that time that she began to realize why people here did certain things a certain way. Read more »
