I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas weekend! We are slowly recovering and definitely splurged over the weekend eating and drinking Oh Plenty! I think I woke up yesterday craving lettuce so I’m trying to take it easy this week. LOL I think my favorite food over the weekend was Ben’s smoked butte, my cookie platter, (Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, Gluten Free Peanut Butter Blossoms and Butterscotch Blondies) this cheese ball and Cherry’s Brunswick stew. What did you dine on over the weekend?
The girls really enjoyed Hanukkah and Christmas! Avery mastered the Hanukkah prayer and Kinsey was a great assistant. They especially loved having hot chocolate during the snow and holidays. My mom gave them a Hershey’s set for Christmas and they are already asking for a refill!
Today I’m sharing another cheese ball with y’all in case you need a good appetizer for any upcoming parties. My friend, Brooke, and I were talking about how goat cheese and honey would be a good addition to the Pecan Cheese Dip I made a couple weeks ago, swapping out the cheddar for goat cheese. Then on Friday someone posted cheese ball truffles on Facebook (similar to our idea) and of course I had to make one. Luckily we were hosting Christmas Eve lunch at our house so it was the perfect occasion for it. This cheese ball is delicious, easy to make and looks so pretty and festive on a platter. Honestly the ball is huge (softball size) and would be good for a gathering of about 20 guests but if you are having a smaller crowd, you can half the recipe, make two smaller balls or serve it in a dish. Don’t buy a cheese ball, make this one instead! Also, serve it with thicker cracker – like Triscuits. Give it a go and let me know what you think!
