Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

This is my first ever Blue Monday!!!
I am having sooo much participating in all of these weekly events!!!
It is such a great way to meet
new people and make new friends!!!
I decided to include a quick and
easy recipe for a yummy spread that tastes amazing
on the cookies in this cute BLUE tin!!! The recipe and
the cookies are from World Market.
They were doing a demonstration during
my kids Easter break and my son
almost raptured when he tasted it!!! I highly recommend it!!!

I threw in some extra BLUE photos just for fun!!!

Lemon Drop Spread

10 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup lemon curd
A squeeze of lemon
Optional~ lemon zest on top

Whip ingredients together until fully combined
and smooth.
Serve with Nyakers Gingersnaps.

Thank you to the sweet Smiling Sally for hosting
this fun event... Blue Monday!!!

Lots of Love!!!
