NOTE: If you have never watched LOST, are you crazy?? No, really.... If you've never watched LOST, do NOT watch it tonight on TV as they start Season 4. Really, you won't get it. You'll miss so many good things from the past 3 seasons. You must start with Season 1, Episode 1 to really understand it. (and to get hooked!) And the reason I'm not watching it at this moment is a) Noah is playing Wii, b) We are TIVO'ing it so we don't have to watch it with commercials. I'd much rather wait a couple of hours and be able to skip ALL commercials than say, "awwww!" every 9 minutes when a commercial breaks in.
I found a really yummy looking recipe that I'd like to try in the month of February, if I can find good strawberries. These would be so pretty for Valentine's Day.
12 large fresh strawberries, washed
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon sour cream
fresh mint leaves (to garnish) (optional)
Remove stems from strawberries to form a flat base. Place berries on cutting surface, pointed end facing up.
With a sharp knife, carefully slice each berry in half vertically to within a 1/4 inch of base. Cut each half into three wedges to form 6 petals. (Don't slice through the base.) Pull petals apart slightly.
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and sour cream; beat until light and fluffy. With a pastry bag and star tip or small spoon, fill strawberries with cream cheese mixture.
Notes & Options:.
A plastic zipper sandwich bag can be used instead of a pastry bag by filling with cream cheese mixture and squeezing out excess air before sealing. Carefully cut one corner off of the bottom of the bag and squeeze mixture out through the cut.
Have a good night!
