December '10 LINKY...add your Forges Here!

We are just going to continue on this month...everybody is very busy with the holidays, so if you have any past or current forges to link up, then please do so here.  Different homemade cheese and dairy is always welcome, as well.  We wish everybody a safe and peaceful holiday season...

If you happen to make any fun holiday cheese creations (cheese balls, logs, etc.) feel free to link to those this month, as well!
Here's a bit of inspiration for you from the American Egg Board:

Holiday Cheese Log
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted pecans
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red pepper
  • 3 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
  • 6 hard-cooked eggs, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 dash red pepper sauce
 In small bowl, combine first 3 ingredients. Set aside. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and blue cheese until blended. Stir in eggs, onions, garlic, and red pepper sauce until blended. Shape mixture into a 10-inch log. Roll in reserved parsley mixture. Cover and chill at least 2 hours. Serve with crackers.  (makes ~2c.)

Well, since I am apparently never going to get around to making my own cheese, maybe I can at least make a cheeseball.

Wonderful!

Looking forward to your cheeseball Pam. I hope to make one this year too.

Maybe two balls and one log. Standing straight up. ;-)
Too cheesy?
