Tonight's dinner was strip steaks, salt potatoes, salad and corn.

We made Cheer Wine punch to drink tonight.

Cheer Wine is a soda made here in NC. It is cherry flavored- to me it is similar to cherry cough medicine! BLAH!! to me as a northerner who didn't grow up drinking it and I hate the cough medicine flavor.


The Cheer Wine punch is really good! My dd's teacher made it for their class Christmas party and we decided to make it for tonight.

The recipe is simple:

To a large mold or lg. bowl add:

1-2 liter bottle of Cheer Wine (not diet) + 1 lg can (46 oz) of pineapple juice. Freeze.

One hour before serving, pop the frozen mix out of the mold and put in a punch bowl. Pour 1 - 2 liter bottle of Ginger Ale over to melt. Needs no ice. Stir to mix.

I divided this mixture into 2 gallon jugs. Popped them in the freezer. To drink it for dinner, it wasn't frozen, just good and cold. I poor a half glass of the punch mix into each glass and then topped off each glass with Ginger Ale. I'll follow the directions for the frozen mix for later tonight.

You can also add vodka to this mixture for adults.

Tonight it's bean soup with homemade potato bread. I'm going to make an apple crisp for dessert since we have some apples that have seen better days.

Happy New Year!
