Secret to a Happy New Year without the Resolutions

Print Friendly

 Secret 1

I have never made a resolution in my life mostly because I know like others, I will probably last about 2 weeks in keeping them. : ) But I ran across these quotes that I thought would be perfect to practice this coming year.

Secret 2

I have seen this first quote and I think it was told to the people of England during the war. It was Keep Calm and Carry on. As much as I liked that version I like this version even better. I would love for this to be the motto of our website.

Keep Calm and Make It Work

Secret 3

I am not sure who wrote this second quote but think of what things would be like if everyone would forget their personal resolutions, ones like “I want to eat healthier”, “I want to lose weight” or “I want to get out of debt”, and instead try to practice the things listed below each day. Not only would they be better for it but so would others.

      Bea it is one that most people probably wouldn’t like. That is why I fix it the day after Christmas for myself and enjoy it through the New Year. You have to like blue cheese and black olives.

      Blue Cheese Dip

      1 stick butter, softened
      1 – 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
      1/2 small can (about 2 Tbsp. more or less) chopped black olives
      2-3 oz. silvered almonds, that have been roasted
      2 oz. crumbled blue cheese

      Mix all and serve with chips.

      You can adjust the amount of almonds, olives and blue cheese to your own liking. I also like it after it has chilled and gotten cold although when you eat it that way you need to use a knife to put a dab on the chip. The blue cheese taste is not so strong when served cold.

    I love blue cheese and everything else included in the recipe so I would probably like this recipe. Sounds good to me. Thanks
