I know that in the past I have let Christmas beat me down. Through stress and exhaustion. It was a non stop rush that left me with migraines, lots of stress and by the time Christmas came I was to tired to enjoy things. Well I made the decission that I wasn't going to let that happen and so a new tradition is born.
My family loves to eat, so with that in mind I am doing the gift of food. I am baking everyone cakes this year so when they get up Christmas they will have a cake made by me to enjoy for Christmas day. I have 7 to make and really looking forward to it.
Cheese Party ! this year I decided that since we are cheese nuts (don't think I have ever met a Cheddar I didn't like even the sharpest) and my hubby and kids agree so we are going to have a cheese party, all different kinds, with a variety of crackers and bread. Followed with hot chocolate or coffee and of course cheese cake
When my boys were little they loved the cheese ball I always made so here is how simple it is and yes it will be at the party
1tsp garlic salt
1 T Worcester sauce
Let you cheeses come to room temperature. In a mixing bowl mix the cheeses and the garlic salt and Worcesters sauce. blend well. Form into a ball on a plate and then cover with pecans and parsley.
put in the fridge to firm back up and then serve with crackers or bread
