YOURS: Choosing this week's "YOURS" was such a difficult decision. There were links to the world's easier guacamole, 12-layer chocolate cake, and tips on how to protect yourself from the flu this winter. But, since I had to choose one, I choose Sweet Pea over at The Newlyweds for her post on her favorite holiday dip, cranberry caramelized onion cheese dip. Yes, it's a mouthful, but after you check out her photography, you'll want a mouthful!
This recipe sounds unique, delicious and so festive and I can't wait to try it. I always love Sweet Pea's tutorials, as they are filled with colorful and beautiful photography and I would recommend that all of you go check out her blog. Thank you so much, Sweet Pea, for linking up and always participating in Homemaker Monday. I really appreciate it! For Sweet Pea's recipe, click HERE.
MINE: This week I would like to share one of my favorite, most refreshing drinks. This is totally not wintry or Christmas-y at all, as it is ice cold, but I'm going to post it anyway because it's my blog, and that is what I get to do.
2 cups frozen, sliced strawberries
1 to 1 1/2 cups water (depending on desired thickness)
Sweetener to taste, such as agave nectar, honey or sugar (2 tablespoons at most)
2 teaspoons vanilla
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. If you're using a Vita-Mix, don't blend for more than 30 seconds, as your strawberries will begin to melt because of the heat.
And if you want, you can drink this while you are painting Christmas ornaments...
OURS: Okay, what homemaking tips, recipes, how-tos or even disasters (help us learn from your mistakes!) do you have for us today?

Thank you so much, all of you, for joining us on a weekly basis and I hope you have a happy Homemaker Monday!
And for your holiday enjoyment, the 7-year-old girl's favorite Christmas song...
