Stuffed Celery

First a tiny reminder.
Don’t forget…
only a couple days left until our Christmas giveaway starts.
Black Friday is the day.
These Christmas bulbs are the first gift to go,
and I will be sure to get them out to you before Christmas
so you can put them on your tree.

You probably think I’m still wrapping Christmas presents
from my last post, don’t you?  Not a chance.
It’s Turkey time…
Gobble gobble!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
I am so Thankful for your friendship & support.
May you and your family share many blessings this Thanksgiving.
Happy belated Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends too!
Now lets get started on one of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions in our family…Stuffed Celery
What in the heck is stuffed celery?

My Mom, Dad, Sister, Sister’s girlfriend, my niece, and our 2 girls (Rick was taking the picture) 2011
Thanksgiving is now celebrated at our house.
We are having a small crowd this year.
Just us 4 and my Mom & Dad.
(can’t forget turkey lover, DUDE)
My sisters live in Buffalo, and my in-laws live all over the world,
so it’s difficult to get everyone together at once.  I am so very thankful this year because my Mom became terribly ill right
after this photo was taken.  We didn’t think she was going to make it,
but she pulled through, and she is doing wonderful :)
We will be sure to have some fun and
play some games by the fire this Thanksgiving.
As a little girl I loved setting the table for Thanksgiving.
I remember putting name cards at each place setting, folding the napkins all pretty,
and sneaking as many black olives as I could with out anyone noticing.
Now a days I always buy 3 cans of black olives so we don’t run out :)
Speaking of olives…
If you like green olives, you will love this simple recipe.
Did you know green olives are unripened black olives?
My Mom & Dad served “Stuffed Celery” at every Thanksgiving.
It was usually served on the olive tray with all of the pickles, and olives.
We sound a little obsessed with olives.
Well, we are actually.
Stuffed Celery Serves 8

1  8 oz. 1/3 less fat cream cheese or traditional (softened)
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup sliced green olives with pimentos
celery stalks(washed and cut up to your preference in size)
Mix it all together, and spread on celery stalk.
I use a fork, and my fingers to get it on there.  Store in the fridge, and it will keep for at least a week.
I guarantee it will be a hit.  Even my kiddos enjoy it.
Let me know if you try it…
Happy Thanksgiving.

    We have been making a version of this with pecans and mayo instead of cream cheese.
