Celebrations and Cheddar Cheese

We celebrated the 25th anniversary of cancer survivorship this past Saturday.

Twenty-five years ago, (December 1985), my daughter was diagnosed with acute lymphocetic leukemia (A.L.L.) She was not quite three years old. This past weekend, she hosted a "Sparkling Celebration" (cocktail party) to thank all those who were part of her life then and now. It was a lovely evening at the Overture Center in Madison, Wisconsin. Family, friends and medical personnel were on hand to share the special night. A number of us shared stories/memories of those times and my sister and nephew put together a beautiful photo video with music that was very touching. All in all, it was a wonderful evening...I truly believe in miracles!

It's also time to celebrate all CHEESEHEADS!

The Green Bay Packers won their playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles so it's on to Atlanta next Saturday. GO PACK!

And speaking of cheese, I found this great recipe:
Cheesy Flat Bread
1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
2 Tbsp. finely chopped onion
2-3 Tbsp. finely chopped onion
2-3 Tbsp. paprika
½ tsp. dried oregano or basil
½ tsp. garlic powder
1 c. (4 oz.) shredded cheddar cheesePat dough onto bottom and up sides of greased 14” pizza pan or 15x10x1” baking pan, forming a crust. Spread with butter. Sprinkle with onion, paprika, oregano and garlic powder. Prick crust several times with fork; sprinkle with cheese. Cover and let rise in warm place for 30 minutes. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 8 servings.
