What's Happening in Wine Country
    Well--  we almost made it to Thanksgiving before the weather went north.  Great mild late fall weather turned suddenly into single digit snowy windy nasty weather just days before Thanksgiving.  Only a few hardy soles made it over the mountains for Thanksgiving in Wine Country at our local wineries.  The appetizers, tapas and wines were out of this world and visitors got great personal attention with very light crowds.  Put this event on your calendar for next year. 
 Christmas balls
All of us at Wine Country RV Park would like to thank you for your business this year and wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

With a lot of indoor time during the winter you have an opportunity to plan your RV excursions for next year. The Prosser Chamber of Commerce has an up to date calendar of major events that will help you pick an enjoyable time to come to Wine Country RV Park.  Make sure you change the year at the top of the calendar to 2011.

We're Excited!!
    As I mentioned in the October Newsletter, Rich and Deb Wallace, our previous managers, moved on to pursue other endeavors.  They did a wonderful job and will be a hard act to follow but we think we have found an energetic couple to make your stay with us even more enjoyable

    Scott and Kelly
Scott and Kelly Whittington left the corporate world to enjoy the slower pace of the RV life.  They will be joining us as our new managers January 15th.  They visited Prosser this fall and immediately fell in love with it.  Their mission is to continue improving Wine Country RV Park to make it the best RV destination in the Northwest.  Stop by the office when you arrive and meet this great couple.

Recipe of the Month by Rhonda
Rhonda's Praline Pumpkin Pie

A light custard filling enhanced with a buttery praline topping.

    1 1/4 cups sugar                              2 tbsp butter
    1 tsp nutmeg                                  1/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans
    1 tsp cinnamon                                1 pie crust (can be own or Pillsbury's)
    1/2 tsp salt                                   1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
    1 (15 oz) can Libby's Pumpkin                4 eggs
    1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar           1 1/2 cups milk
    1/3 cup flour                                  whipped cream if desired


   In a large bowl, combine sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt; stir in pumpkin.  Refrigerate, covered, at least 2 hours or overnight. 

    In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and flour.  Using pastry blender or fork, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in coarsely chopped pecans and set aside. 

    Prepare pie crust according to package or your own recipe, roll to 12" circle.  Place in 9" deep-dish glass pie plate; flute edge.  Press finely chopped pecans into bottom of crust. 

    Lightly beat eggs until combined but not foamy; stir in milk.  Blend into pumpkin mixture after refrigeration time above just until combined.  Pour into pastry shell.

    Bake in a preheated 400 F oven for 10 minutes; reduce heat to 350 F and continue baking until center is set (45-50 minutes).  Then sprinkle brown sugar mixture over filling.  Continue to bake until knife inserted near center comes out clean and topping is light golden brown (about 10 more minutes).  Cool completely.  Serve with whipped cream.  About 8 servings.

Beverage Recommendation:  Bailey's Orig. Irish Cream Liqueur with fresh brewed coffee!

Enjoy!! Rhonda
