Merry Christmas

Holiday Cookies

This year we here in southern Wisconsin are treated – not to a “White Christmas”- but rather a warm day with green grass and a little rain.  Unusual at best.

Santa’s helpers and the elves at Wisconsinmade.com are looking forward to a calm weekend with their families, a little spiced cider, some cookies and maybe a movie or two.

As we count our blessing this Christmas we are grateful for all of our families, our health, and the beautiful peace and tranquility of the season.  Our Artisan partners and all of us here at Wisconsinmade wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and best wishes for a joyous and prosperous New Year.santa

Here in Wisconsin winter is usually a bit longer than some of us would prefer.  But this year in mid-December the temps are in the 40’s.  There is no snow on the ground.  Walks outdoors around the neighborhood are pleasant.  And each pleasant day like this gets us one day closer to March.

Wisconsin Thanksgiving

It’s a great day to be from Wisconsin!

Wisconsin families are grateful for many blessings this Thanksgiving.  A beautiful extended fall season, bountiful yields for most of our crops, an improving economy and of course our delicious seasonal foods.

1392-cranberry-chutney-L

Cranberry Chutney

Thanksgiving dinner’s main course could include a ham assortment with cranberry chutney.  This chutney is a unique combination of cranberry chunks with a hint of clove mixed into a sweet cranberry sauce that goes very well with ham, turkey, pork, chicken or game meats.  I have also used it as an ingredient in a grilled cheese sandwich (sometimes with bacon!).  The three jar package on Wisconsinmade.com is perfect for family dinners – one jar on each end of the table and one in the middle. Highly recommended.

2773-caramel-apple-chocolate-main-L

Caramel Apples

For dessert there is the pumpkin cream cheesecake.  And for a hostess gift we have a pair of caramel apples, some pumpkin fudge or some fall cookies.

If the tryptophan kicks in get your nap in early because the Thanksgiving football game this year is the Green Bay Packers against their NFL North Division rival the Chicago Bears.  The Packers have scheduled a ceremony and celebration honoring Bret Favre with a planned appearance by Bart Star at Lambeau Field.  Wisconsinites are thankful for the contributions to Packers history made by both of them.  A great way to end our Thanksgiving Day.

We hope your Thanksgiving Day is filled with gratitude and family fun and that you find time to enjoy some of these great Wisconsinmade products that are all
