Day 3 ~ Brazilian Limeade & Cucumber Crackers

It's day # 3 trying out appetizer recipes for New Year's Eve.  
I found this recipe in our Church cookbook, but it actually comes from my very talented neighbor, Heather.
She has great taste in everything from food to decor. There are several  of Heather's appetizers in the book, so I couldn't help sharing another one of her recipes, Cucumber Crackers.

Here's what you will need for the Brazilian Limeade:
Sugar, sweetened condensed milk, limes, water, and ice. 
Brazilian Limeade
 2 limes
1/2 c. sugar
3 T. sweetened condensed milk
3 c. water
Ice

Directions
Wash limes, cut off ends and slice into eight wedges.  Place limes in a blender with sugar, sweetened condensed milk, water, and ice.  Blend in an electric blender, pulsing 5 times.  Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove rinds.  Serve over ice. 
This drink was so yummy. My kids loved it! The sweetened condensed milk added an interesting taste. 
 Be sure to use a fine strainer, or you will be choking on chunks of lime. 
Heather's cucumber crackers were delicious too. 
 I like that it's light to eat along with some of the rich appetizers.
 The Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese also has a kick to it.

Directions:
Spread cream cheese onto cracker.
Top with a cucumber slice and sprinkle with Mrs. Dash.

How EASY is that? Simple and delicious!
She has a couple more in the cookbook, I just might have to share. 
 Thanks Heather!

Nicole has another great appetizer to share tomorrow!

This drink looks VERY good! I have a hard time drinking alcoholic beverages... they just don't agree with me, so maybe I could try this instead!
