Hi, I'm Macy Fisher, the Mifflin County Dairy Princess.
Many of you may have seen me at HarvestFest this past weekend. I was there on Saturday, while Rebecca helped me out Friday night. Rebecca agreed to help me out so that I could experience my senior year. Friday was our homecoming game at Mount Union and I really wanted to go. I did tell them that I would do it if they needed me to, but Rebecca and her mom told me that they would take care of it. I want to thank them for helping me when they didn't have to. I did have a great time at the game and the dance was really fun. I had the opportunity to bond with my class. At the football game, I had a new experience with food. I ate my very first deep fried Oreo! I always thought that they sounded disgusting, but it was exceptionally good. Sure, I felt my arteries clog as I ate it, but I think it may have been worth it.
On the first of the month, I was at Chippy Alumiller's Customer Appreciation Picnic. It was a very cold, windy, rainy day, but it was still a great promotion. You may be thinking how could that be possible. Well, Chippy had a live band there that was great, but he also sang his own original song, which was a spin on the old show 'HeeHaw.' I was there to hand out the chocolate milk during the meal portion of the afternoon. A couple people said I should have been handing out hot chocolate instead of chocolate milk. I just told them that I was making sure that they were going to stay awake. Chocolate milk is a natural energy drink that keeps you going.
The other promotion that I had other than HarvestFest and the picnic was on Oct. 10. I went to Merf to record new PSAs. Oct. 10 was also one other big event. My baby sister, Amanda, turned 16 years old. That kind of scares me. My little sister is now able to drive and is practically grown up. So, happy birthday, Amanda!
If you made it out to HarvestFest, then I hope you noticed that I was serving a pumpkin dip. Many people commented on it and asked for the recipe, so I decided that I would just give everyone the recipe. The other recipe this week is another fall dip. It is to go with apples, which again, if you were at HarvestFest, you would have the opportunity to buy some delicious ones.
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cups powdered sugar
1 can (15-oz.) pumpkin
1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Mix cream cheese, sour cream and sugar. Beat until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients until well mixed. Chill for at least an hour then serve with ginger snap cookies.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package almond brittle chips (7.5-oz.) or English toffee bits (10-oz.)

In a bowl, beat cream cheese, sugars and vanilla. Fold in brittle chips. Serve the dip with apples. Refrigerate any leftovers.
