Now a little interview with Suzie Says the party planning queen...
Favorite party you have planned...
My friends and I have done dozens of parties - every theme you can imagine. I don't have a favorite (except for the bridal show my friends gave Kara Noel and I wasn't involved). For me the funnest time is when our little committee meets to plan. We have known each other for so many years. We always eat, laugh, and are brutally honest, as when we nixed Stephanie's idea (Blah Blah Blahger's mom) to hire a harpist for a shower. Sometimes we are a little cranky which makes it much more fun!
You are famous for your cheese ball! Will you share the recipe?
~1/2 cup cheesed Whiz
~8 oz neufachtel cream cheese
~1-1 1/2 t. of liquid smoke
~3 cups (12 oz) Sharp Grated Cheddar Cheese
Place cheese whiz, cream cheese & liquid smoke in a food processor with chopping blade. Process till smooth.
Add grated cheddar.
Process till smooth.
Place mixture in a bowl and chill 45 minutes.
Form into a ball and roll in chopped nuts. (I like pecans)
Set out at room temp for 45 minutes before serving.
I am "almost famous" for this recipe. So it better not show up in a cookbook with someone elses name #@$%!!
2 tips to make a great centerpiece are...
#1 If it's for a dining table make sure your guests can see over it.
#2 For a serving table make it tall and large and have parts of it on different levels. You can use boxes of various sizes and drape your table cloth over them. Spread parts of the centerpiece (such as vines, flowers, tiny lights & ribbon) between the serving dishes.
What are you getting me for Christmas?
I don't know. I'm checking all the gumball/trinket machines at various grocery stores.
