A Cinderella story

My daughter was recently asked to prom. She is 20 yr's old and graduated a couple years ago, but she and her girl friend have 2 BFF's that they are good friends with that are graduating this year. I suppose that was an oxymoron - BFF and good friends - I can't really say because I am not completly sure of the meaning of BFF. These young gentlemen (I say that because they are very nice boys) asked my daughter and her friend to prom, which was special for my daughter because she never got to go to her prom. She wore a beautiful light blue satin dress that she borrowed from her friends sister and her friend wore one of my daughters past formal gowns that was brown and pink. Their dates wore matching blue and pink ties. They looked very nice. Their 3rd friend went with her boyfriend and she wore a camo gown and he, a matching tie. They all made very nice couples.
Before the dance they went to Lonestar for dinner. As they were walking into the resturant a little girl saw my daughter and got all excited and started yelling "Ella!, Ella!" and pointing at her. Her mom said, "Yes honey, she does look like Cinderella" My daughter was a princess for a night.

Long time no see!

My, my, my, it's been a while. Hope anyone that is still around is doing well. I really can't blame those that have abandoned me. Cold coffee is not enjoyable. Well, let's see if we can heat it up! I have a recipe that I want to share. I made this for a girls luncheon I was invited to, and everybody loved it! It's quick, easy and oh so yummy! Hope you get a chance to try it, you won't be disappointed.

Hot Apple Pie Dip

1 pkg 8 oz. PHILIDELPHIA cream cheese*
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 apple, chopped small, divided
¼ c. KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese*
1 Tbsp. finely chopped Pecan pieces
Wheat Thin Original crackers

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix cream cheese, sugar and spice in medium bowl until well blended.
Stir in half of the apples.
Spread into pie plate or small casserole dish.
Top with remaining apples, Cheddar cheese and nuts.
Bake 10-12 min or until heated through.
Serve with crackers.

*Recipe calls for 1/3 less fat cream cheese and 2% milk cheddar cheese but I used regular.
