Christmas Corner

Christmas is sights, especially the sights of Christmas reflected in the eyes of a child.
- William Saroyan



Christmas is forever, not for just one day, for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
- Norman Wesley Brooks



Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first.
- George Matthew Adams



My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?
- Bob Hope



Pineapple Cream Cheese Ball Recipe

Ingredients:
2 (8 oz.) packs cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup bell pepper, chopped fine
2 Tbl. white onion, chopped fine
1 can crushed pineapple, very well drained
1 Tbl. Tony Chachere's or Lowery's seasoned salt
3/4 cup chopped pecans


Directions:

Step 1:
Drain pineapple until as much liquid is removed as possible.

Step 2:
Chop bell pepper and onion by hand - do NOT use food processor or chopper as these will make too much liquid.

Step 3:
Mix all ingredients except pecans. Form into 1 large ball or 2 smaller balls.

Step 4:
Wrap with clear plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 to 2 hours or until firm. Remove from plastic wrap carefully and roll in chopped pecans. If too soft, place back into refrigerator until firm enough to handle.

Step 5:
Place in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Note: The longer this is refrigerated before serving, the better it is. The flavors really blend in as it rests.
