I am joining the ~Giving Thanks~ celebration this week. Monday through Thursday we are sharing as we prepare for Thanksgiving. Stop by Kelli's and see what others are up to this week. Or join in the fun by signing onto Mr. Linky and share how you are preparing for this special holiday.
Here are some things you could share:
-What you are thankful for
-Thanksgiving traditions and memories
-Cleaning/Organizing "before" and "after" pictures
-Anything having to do with Thanksgiving!
I found these small pumpkin plates on clearance at Walmart a couple of weeks ago. These were the last two for sale. When they first caught my eye, I immediately pictured them as serving plates for appetizers. Any other ideas of uses for them?
For appetizers on Thanksgiving Day I plan to serve cheese balls on these with a basket of crackers nearby. Our meal will be in the early evening so appetizers will be a must during the afternoon.
I hope that these plates add a holiday touch and make my guests feel special and very welcome in our home:)
My sister, Melissa gave me a great cheese ball recipe. I just called her and received permission to share it with you:) It is great for any get-together.
Cheese Ball (makes one)
8 oz. cream cheese softened
1 stick butter softened
2 cups shredded cheese (any kind - I use mild Colby or cheddar)
(SAVE 1/4 CUP BACK TO ROLL IT IN)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4-1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
chopped onion (fresh or dried) to taste. --I use fresh
1/2 teaspoon parsley
OPTIONAL- 1/2 small pkg. of chopped corn beef (I don't use this)
Mix all ingredients together. Roll into a ball and then roll the cheese ball in the extra shredded cheese covering it. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill.
Serve with crackers.
