Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, from the whole Treat family!
It would seem, from this card, that Grammy and Grampy probably spent several New Year's Eves counting down to midnight with Jean and John O'Brien. Grammy's recipe box included this card, which is extremely brand specific (we assure you, this is not product placement).

"Delicious Dips at Jean's New Year's Eve

Hickory Farm Crackers

Wisconsin Pride Cheese, room temperature
add sour cream and Hellmann's mayo
Mix all together until smooth."

May everyone have a safe and happy 2012!
