Hi, I'm Macy Fisher, the Mifflin County Dairy Princess.
This week has been a piece of cake. Wednesday was the last day of dog sitting for Mandy and I. Wednesday I also had no classes at school.
I was one of a few students of my senior class who got to be out most of the day to make our ham sandwiches. We sold them as a fundraiser for our class trip. We got all the supplies from Brennaman's Meat Market, but we had to make them. It actually went really fast.
When we first started, I thought for sure it would be after school and we would still have a few hundred sandwiches left to make, but we were done before seventh period was over. I sold 60 sandwiches, which takes $150 off of my trip. Other students, however, sold almost double the amount I did and they ended up paying off their entire trip.
That night after delivering all of my sandwiches, Amanda, mom and I headed back to the school to see the last home wrestling match for the year. After the match was over, mom dropped Mandy and I off at our friend's house to finish out our dog sitting days. Later that evening mom came back and stayed the night with us.
Thursday was just like any other day. I had I very easy day of school, then went home. I didn't have anything after school or in the evening. Friday we had an assembly at school about career opportunities in Huntingdon County. That evening there was a volleyball tournament up at the school that Mandy and I were thinking about going to but we never did. I stayed home and worked on my scrapbook instead.
All day Saturday, Mom, Mandy and I went grocery shopping. We were played out by the end of the day and I went to bed early. In return I had to wake up early to go and open church on Sunday.
That afternoon, Dad and I went to take some hay and straw to Roy Brooks. Roy is an old family friend who takes care of my calves for me some time. Jerseys get sick very easily and with the weather we have been having lately, I decided to send Boo, my newest addition, over to him for a while. I don't have to pay for her to be there as long as I pay for her feed and bring straw and hay when he needs it. I have lost a few calves so far to pneumonia and a healthy cow is a happy cow so I didn't want to take my chances.
The rest of my week had been pretty easy. Nothing big has happened so far but I am excited for the Super Bowl this weekend. I love all the foods that Mom makes for it. This year mom is going to make one of my favorite things - buffalo chicken dip! Actually, I love any kind of dip, especially at parties like Super Bowl parties.
There are so many different ones to try with so many different dippers. You can use crackers, chips, veggies, pretzels and also some different ones of your own - like little smokies, ring bologna, cheese cubes and bread.
This week's recipes are a bunch of dips that you can make for the big game!
8 ounces cream cheese
