Saturday we went to celebrate the baptism of a precious new gift from above given to dear friends of ours. I had offered to bring some snacks to share. Being that we were celebrating the feasts of The Sacred Heart of Jesus and The Immaculate Heart of Mary, I checked out Catholic Cuisine for ideas. I was thrilled to find these awesome and easy ideas!
For the first tray, I hand shaped a block of cream cheese into a heart and placed on a small plate. I then added salsa and broken pretzels to form the crown of thorns. Next, I added shredded cheese for the flame coming out at the top. I put the small plate onto a larger one and surrounded it with tortilla chips. (Using the two plates keeps the chips from getting soggy.)
For the Immaculate Heart, I also hand molded a cream cheese heart. I put some pretty little artificial flowers across the center and placed a sword plastictoothpicks through the side. Ritz crackers surrounded this also in the form of a heart.
I think these both were a special addition to a beautiful day! Thanks again ladies for sharing your creativity with us all!
It's that exciting time of the year again! Lots of new books are coming in the mail. The kids are all excited to see what's in the box. This is definitely one of the highlights of the year. The next couple of months will be busy with our move. Once we are all settled, I'm sure the kids will be anxious to dig into the knowledge that awaits their discovery!
I've listed the books we've chosen starting with The House Cat (HC) 9th grade, Snuggle Bug(SB) 6th grade, Buck(B) 1st grade, and Honeybee (HB) Kindergarten.
