The Lesser Joy ... 'note-crunching'

October 3, 2017

WOW!  you are truly amazing.  Note-crunching is never fun and always hard work, but  you have all embraced it and we are learning so much so quickly.  Thank you for your dedication.  I heard some real music occuring in When Christmas Comes - that's what happens once we know the notes.  


 When you are listening this week - please review your parts for Mary, Did You Know,  When Christmas Comes and Lesser Joys of Christmas.

In addition, - the above video is a version of I Heard the Bells.  It is really stirring if you sing it with conviction - something a little different and challenging for NWS, but i suspect you are all up for the challenge.


I'm working on recording the Swingin' Christmas, but it will be next week before I can finish it.  This week is taken up with our Watercolours and Jazz program.


Next rehearsal - I heard the bells, Mary Did you Know, Swingin' Christmas (part 2)  I Heard the Bells - secure the parts.  Hope to start to review - Snow Snow Snow - Irving Berlin.  (check your recordings from last year.)  


For those who asked - here's the recipe for the spread we enjoyed at last social


Pineapple Cheese Log or Ball


2 -  8 oz. cream cheese

1 -  8 1/2 oz. tin crushed pineapple  well drained

2  cups toasted  chopped walnuts or pecans

1/2  cup chopped green pepper

2  tablespoons chopped green onion 

1  tablespoon season salt (optional) 


 Toast nuts  and save 1 cup for outside of cheese log 

 Cream cheese till soft and smooth .

Add remaining ingredients and mix well 

Spread remaining 1 cup of nuts onto wax paper and roll cream cheese to desired shape

Decorate with few pieces of diced pineapple .

Wrap in wax paper and chill .

Served with assorted crackers . 

Note ; I  made half of this recipe for smaller cheese log as this makes about 3 1/2 cups 


It has been a hit at our Pike Lake golf get away. Enjoy !


HAVE a wonderful THANKSGIVING EVERYONE.  See you on Tuesday.
