Pesto Sun-Dried Tomato Cheese Spread

If you like to host parties, and include cheese spreads on your menu, you will definitely want to add the Pesto Sun-Dried Tomato Cheese Spread to your recipe collection.

My daughter shared this recipe with me, and it always is a great hit at our parties.
If you are lucky enough to have any leftover, you may store it in an airtight container for several days.

Saint Nicholas or Santa Claus???

Saint Nicholas, was the “gift giver” I was familiar with during my childhood. He had a white beard, was dressed in bishop’s garbs, carried a crozier, and arrived on a white horse. On December 6th, he was visiting well-behaved children, and placing candy and cookies under their pillows. If you were really good, then he would drop off more goodies on Christmas Eve. You also were expected to know your Catechism, in case he decided to quiz you, before leaving you a gift. We recited prayers and songs dedicated to St. Nicholas, instead of leaving him milk and cookies.
