I was supposed to have a picture for you, but all I have left is the empty bowl. And no, I didn't eat it all tonight. There was actually only about 2 TBSP left. But if there would have been more I probably would have eaten it.
2 blocks cream cheese, softened. ( I use the fat free.)
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 carton cool whip
1 bag flaked coconut.
Mix the cream cheese until smooth, add the sugar and vanilla and the coconut. gradually add in the whipped cream.
Be creative - serve with fruit, cookies or chocolate. So good.

Another friend found the recipe online after we ate at Spoonriver this past summer. We had tons of great foods that day but the only thing we really remember is the bois boudron sauce.
So here you go - but even if I give you the recipe, know that you still may be receiving a bottle next year at Christmas.
Bois Boudran sauce:
150ml groundnut oil
50ml wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
5 drops of tabasco
100g shallots, chopped
5g chervil, finely sniped
5g chives, finely snipped
20g tarragon, finely snipped
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Combine the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in a bowl. Stir with a small whisk then add the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, tabasco, chopped shallots and all the snipped herbs. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper and keep at room temperature.
Here is a picture of the sauce at Spoonriver. Mmmmmm....... Enjoy.

We sat through almost two hours of performances, and I admit I may be a little biased but Aidan's class was seriously one of the best!
We also enjoyed a Chinese meal, thanks to Kitty Grandma. We all remarked how big and old Aidan seemed now that we have entered into the world of school performances.
Next on tap for Yinghua - hopefully an art fair for the spring. I may have to take my sewing machine out of retirement.

Here are some pictures of Aidan and his classmates as they try on part of their costumes for Friday's big New Year celebration. They have little red satin pants to wear as well and I still need to make more headbands for the boys. We are trying to get a "karate kid" look, which may be a little difficult considering the boys are wearing halter tops just like the girls, but I am learning to let some things go...................
