I made us a throwback recipe!
This was one of those “what’s moldy” inventions – sorry I don’t have a better story for it. After Jay’s sister’s wedding a few weekends ago, we came home from the beach with some WEIRD food. Like…half a tub of cream cheese but no bagels. Ketchup, mayo, and mustard from hamburger night with nothing to put it on. You know – beach remnants! We were some of the only ones driving and not flying home, and I HATE wasting things (so does my sis-in-law to-be, thankfully), so we packed up the randos and headed home.
And I’ve been trying to finish everything since.
So, I had a bit of cream cheese, a bit of sliced sandwich cheese, and lemon. Weird, and I didn’t want to waste any of it. So, this cheese ball was born! It’s like the kind you get at Christmas but…summery? I had some dill leftover from something else, and it seemed like a great light coating for this. I also think pine nuts would be great crushed up as a coating, but I forgot that thought when I made this. That happens pretty much all the time.
