Favorite Party Recipe

Tonight we have a party to go to. This isn't just any party, but a party to celebrate the "end of the road" for cub scouts. My 10 year old "baby" is having his final den meeting as a cub scout and as a Webelos II before they have their Arrow of Light Ceremony at the Blue and Gold Banquet next week. I couldn't be any more proud of him. He has his sights set on attending his first boy scout meeting ASAP and earning his Eagle Scout by 15. What an accomplishment that would be! But for now, I am feeling a little sad (and on the verge of tearing up-that is SO not me!) that he's getting so grown up.Here is a photo of him before his very first den meeting as a Tiger Cub in 1st grade about 4 1/2 years ago:An important end of the road party requires good food. So I made one of my very favorites and it is so quick, easy and unbelievably delicious. You really want to make the entire recipe because it goes FAST.Grape Salad2 lbs. green seedless grapes2 lbs. red seedless grapes8 oz. sour cream8 oz. cream cheese-softened1/2 c. granulated sugar (I used Splenda)1-2 tsp. vanilla extractTopping Ingredients (optional)1 c. brown sugar, packed, to taste1 c. crushed pecans, to taste1. wash and stem grapes and set aside in large bowl2. Mix sour cream, cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla3. Stir mixture into grapes4. For topping: combine brown sugar and crushed pecans5. Sprinkle over top of grapes6. Chill overnight7. ENJOY!



I'm going to have to try that recipe! Sounds wonderful! He's so adorable! I remember my daughter's first day at Girl Scouts, and this year will be her last as well since she's going to be going into 6th grade next year and there may not be a troop at the middle school. All these milestones for our kids are fun to be a part of! Thanks for sharing! :)


if you haven't tried it...crushed butterfingers are beyond heavenly on top of grape salad....yum!
