Easy Fruity Cheeseball Recipe
Party Time With Champagne
The Super Bowl
I whipped up another Fruity Cheese Ball to snack on while we watched Super Bowl....But alas I didn't pay much attention to the game ...But the food was good..the cheese Ball along with the crackers were devoured ., Before half time..next year I will make two,.
This fruity cheese ball is a big hit when we are expecting company, for movie night and family game night as well... Even the kids love it with fruit, crackers and rice cakes.

New Years Eve
New Years Eve is fairly quite and tame at my house....Usually it is close family members, snacking on a large assortment of foods and drinks.. Much laughter can be heard as we play a new game or work together on the holiday jigsaw puzzle that we had started on Christmas day.
Of course we do have a bottle of Champagne, on ice, ready and waiting. The cork removed with anticipation of the loud pop . Champagne glasses filled as we all join in the count down watching the television and waiting for the ball to drop., and with that a quick smooch with our honey...Wishing each and everyone a Happy New Year. Our glasses can be heard clinking together as we toasts each and every person, even the very young are included in the festivities, as they enjoy sipping on their real champagne glasses filled with sparkling apple cider.
