Mini Cheese Balls

I see that football is back on television. That is basically the only coherent sentence I can muster on this, the eve of my last day before a three day weekend. I see that football is back on television. I give you cheese balls. And a Happy Labor Day to all, and to all, a good night.

Mini Cheese Balls

Adapted from a Philadelphia Cream Cheese Ad

12 oz cream cheese

2 TB toasted sesame seeds

1 tsp poppy seeds

5 cloves garlic, minced

2 TB finely chopped parsley

2 tsp chopped thyme

1 tsp chopped rosemary

¼ cup chopped dried cranberries

2 TB chopped pecans

Cut cream cheese into 6 pieces; roll each into a ball.

Combine sesame seed, poppy seed and half the garlic in small bowl. Mix herbs and remaining garlic in separate small bowl. Combine cranberries and nuts in third bowl.

Roll 2 cheese balls in sesame seed mixture, 2 cheese balls in herb mixture and remaining cheese balls in nut mixture.

In other news, I figured out how to do a triple fancy braid. My on-call hair do borderlines on ballroom. triple braid

Muchas gracias for your very sweet wishes, and yes, things are going swimmingly here in Minneapolis this fall, minus missing having you and KP as neighbors 🙁 A visit is in order soon, I think! I hope that todo vaya bien contigo too, as you keep forging boldly ahead in your residency! XOXOXO
