I don't know why this came to me today - but here are two recipes that go together and are GREAT for parties!!!!
I have made both and they are delish - great recipes!
RED WINE SANGRIA from (Jenn via Food Network Bobby Flay)
2 bottles red Spanish table wine
1 cup brandy
1/2 cup triple sec
1 cup orange juice
1 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup simple syrup, or more to taste (equal parts sugar and water, heated until sugar dissolves, cooled)
Mix all ingredients together and let stand in a tightly sealed container or pitcher for at least 24 hours in the refrigerator before serving.
Cheese Ball (from Renae)
2 8oz cream cheese
1 small can of crushed pineapple (drained)
2 Tablespoon chopped green onions
3/4 cup Chopped green-bell pepper
1 Tablespoon All seasoning salt
2 cups chopped pecan nuts
Set aside 1 cup of chopped nuts. Mix all together the cream cheese, pineapple, green onion, green-bell pepper, all seasoning salt, and 1 cup of chopped pecan nuts. Roll into a ball shape and then take the other cup of nuts and roll the cheese ball in them until covered.
Oh yeah don't forget the crackers!
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
This weekend my grandson tested for his orange stripe for his second degree black-belt.
Then he had a sleep over! Grandma is tired this morning!
Plus every tree in Georgia is in bloom and the allergies are rampant - that adds to the tireness for me. I can't believe some people have snow.
We also had grandson fitted for a tux for an upcoming wedding - was he surprised he had to wear what they told him to wear.
Now tell me what you did over the weekend.
Don't forget to stretch your wings today. I'm going to stretch mine - right after a nap! lol
