cheesey Pointsettias

IMPERIAL CHEESE CRISPS

((THANXS to my awesome mother in law ~Barb for the recipe))

1 carton Imperial Cheese

1 cup flour

½ cup butter

1 ½ cups Rice Krispies

 Blend cheese & butter, add flour and Rice Krispies. Spoon onto greased cookie sheet, push down with fork.

 375 deg for 8-10 min.

These bad boys were super easy and quick to make. “pleasing sharpness & crunch!” is the husband review. And that man loves him a cookie.

 SIDENOTE: Living on Quadra I bitch and grind my teeth when food shopping. 2 batches of these cost $20. The imperial cheese container was $7 and the Krispies small box was $6. CRAZY. Forget shopping local when it comes to Xmas baking, is what I’m learning this year..sorry community..I’m a Costco convert.

And speaking of Poinsettias  (workshopping that segway)…     I had every intention of spending more money than I should at a bead & gem openhouse Friday (after my awesome Friday night date… With my Dad! Thanxs again dad xo). But try as I did for 40 mins, I couldn’t find the party. Lol. Funny when that happens, heh? As I came close to losing my shit, I 911 called my husband. He simply said “baby…you go get yourself a pointsettia”. So I did. And it’s pretty. It’s my very first one as an adult, actually. This holiday season is really shaping up.

SomeWIKI  facts about this lovely plant:      The plant’s association with Christmas began in 16th century Mexico, where legend tells of a young girl who was too poor to provide a gift for the celebration of Jesus‘ birthday. The tale goes that the child was inspired by an angel to gather weeds from the roadside and place them in front of the church altar. Crimson “blossoms” sprouted from the weeds and became beautiful poinsettias.[7] From the 17th century, Franciscan friars in Mexico included the plants in their Christmas celebrations.[8] The star-shaped leaf pattern is said to symbolize the Star of Bethlehem, and the red color represents the blood sacrificethrough the crucifixion of Jesus.[9]The plant’s association with Christmas began in 16th century Mexico, where legend tells of a young girl who was too poor to provide a gift for the celebration of Jesus‘ birthday.
