Midwest Dairy Council

The Midwest Dairy Council wants to remind us how important family togetherness is!  Not just around the holidays, but all year!  They have some great tips on how to make the most out of family time.

Family Togetherness

For Midwestern dairy farm moms, mealtime provides a cherished opportunity to create family memories. They have a couple tips on how to maximize family time during this busy season:

  • We use holiday mealtime to have real conversations as a family. No cell phones are allowed! Sit down at the table (not in front of the tv), share a tasty meal and talk about your day or the things you are most thankful for. — Susan Anglin, Anglin Dairy
  • To squeeze in extra family bonding during busy days, I encourage my kids to get in the kitchen and help out. Don’t worry about making a mess; it’s creating traditions and memories that are most important. — Shannon Squibb, Topwinds Dairy

Entertaining Made Easy

Entertaining is often a major component of the holidays for all families. To help keep your guests happy (and full!), Midwest dairy farm moms share tips and favorite recipes:

  • Cheese trays make a tasty and nutritious appetizer. To add seasonal flair, buy cheese in block form and use holiday cookie cutters to create festive shapes; save the scraps for casseroles. — Barb Liebenstein, Wolf Creek Dairy
  • My holiday guests always seem to be craving something pumpkin flavored. I have a few go-to recipes that are fresh and unexpected: Pumpkin Cheesecake Shake, Pumpkin Pancakes, and my personal favorite, Pumpkin Pie Squares. — Susan Anglin, Anglin Dairy

I don’t know about you, but I personally love pumpkin!  Those recipes sound delicious for any time of the year!
