Christmas ABC's

Before I get to my main topic, I just want to say I think the BCS needs a major overhaul! It is so all about the money and prestige. The SEC is afraid to get their butts whooped by the MWC or WAC. Pretty sad! TCU should be playing Florida and BSU should be playing Cincy. We got cheated!

ok...on to the rest of my thoughts. Busy day but tolerable. Once again - love hanging out with my friends this evening. We are so lucky to have them!

To celebrate the season a few ABC's.  I saw the ABC's on someone elses blog and thought I would come up with my own list :0

On that note - a quick recipe before bed
Chunky Clam Dip - can't leave it alone

3 6½ ounce cans chopped clams, juice reserved
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 pint sour cream
⅓ cup finely chopped red bell pepper
6 scallions, chopped fine
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice, or to taste
1 tsp. Tabasco sauce or Franks hot sauce
¾ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Celery salt
Dried parsley

In a large sieve set over a bowl drain clams, reserving clam juice, and in another bowl whisk together cream cheese and sour cream until very smooth. Whisk 2-3 tablespoons reserved clam juice into cream cheese mixture. Stir in remaining ingredients, adjusting seasonings to taste.
Dip may be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. Bring dip to room temperature before serving. Serve with potato chips.

Ta Ta for now
