Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese
Grapefruit, or large red apples
Chop the dried beef very fine. Divide each 3-ounce package of Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese into twelve pieces, then roll each one into a ball, on butter paddles. Toss each ball in the chopped beef until entirely coated. Put a toothpick through each ball, and stick onto the grapefruit, or large apples.
Old-fashioned is the blossom from which this appetizer takes its name, but modern and distinctive is its flavor. Perfect with chilled tomato juice before dinner.
A delicious and unusual combination of flavors.
We’re almost moved in.
Boxes have been moved to the garage,
a couch has been put back together,
internet is informationally superhighway.
Bocce starts next month,
Cheesewhizzes will be hosting again,
meetings and new projects abound.
It just feels like there’s a lot of work being done right now.
Are you working as hard as we are?
Or twice as hard?
