Just Say "Cheeeeese Ball!'

After posting the blog about
my sister Jewel's winning
chili recipe,
I've had a request for
Jewel's cheese ball recipe
MA Fat Woman.
(For a great laugh, read her blog at

Here goes:

Jewel’s Veggie Cheese Ball
Ingredients:2 Large pkgs. Cream Cheese (Softened)   
1 pkg. Smoked Beef (Ham, Beef )

1/2 pkg. Knorr Vegetable Soup Mix (Dry)

1 Tbsp. Worchester Sauce

1 tsp. Tabasco Sauce (Optional)

Small pkg. of Pecan Crumbs

1 Box Ritz or other party crackers.

Method: Chop Meat very fine (can put in food processor)
Add to soften cream cheese, along with all
remaining ingredients except
Mix together and put on saran wrap.
Pull saran wrap around cheese and form
into ball.
Roll in pecan crumbs.
Serve with crackers.

I have found it very easy to put
2 or 3 packages of Knorr Vegetable Soup
mix in
the blender and grind up to a course powder.
I put it in a zip lock
bag and can use it
any time I need to make a cheese ball or
add to some home
made soup. If you use
the powdered soup, just add 3 tablespoons
to the
cream cheese mix in place of the
½ package. It makes a creamer cheese

ball but with the same great flavor.

Sounds so yummy right now!
Now here's one of my best recipes:

First, put Pizza Hut on speed dial.

Two for Tuesday deal.

Call and place order.

Get in car.

Drive to Pizza Hut, or better yet,
take advantage of free delivery.

Come home,
get out the good china
and chow down!

Now, that's what I call
