Ranch Spread Snowman

Speaking of Snowmen, this Snowman video is totally ridiculous, but it makes me laugh every time. Laser guy is my favorite. And isn’t it bizarre that nearly nekkid jogger when everyone is wearing jackets and scarves? Those slow mo sound effects are funny, too.

Back to speaking of snowmen, my litte guy wasn’t scary at all. Just very cute. (Tasty, too.)

I brought the Ranch Spread Snowman to my daughter’s Nordic Team dinner last night. He fit in just fine.

Ranch Spread Snowman


2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 envelope (1 oz) ranch salad dressing mix
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
Assorted decorations: small pitted ripe olives, pretzel sticks and sweet red and/or orange pepper
Assorted crackers and fresh vegetables


1. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add the dressing mix, mustard and garlic; mix well.

2. Shape into two balls, one slightly larger than the other. (I did this using plastic wrap to help do the shaping) Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

3. Remove from the refrigerator 15 minutes before serving. On a serving plate, stack the small cheese ball on top of the larger ball to make a snowman.

4. Cut ends from olives to make small circles; attach to snowman for eyes and buttons. Insert pretzel sticks for arms. Cut top hat from pepper; place on top of snowman. Trim pepper to make a nose; insert into face. Serve with crackers and vegetables.

Yield: 2-2/3 cups.

Here he is at the party

One of the bands I go to when I need to chill out is The Wave Pictures. They are seriously good. I find David Tattersall’s voice completely mesmerizing. And calming.

This tune fits right in with our cheesy little fellow.
The Wave Pictures-We Dress Up Like Snowmen

Check out The Wave Pictures on the band’s Website. They have a new album coming out in March. Learn more about that on the website and buy their older music there, too.
