I thought about an antipasto plate, but the last time I tried that, it was really expensive and no one ate any of it. I got to munch through two pounds of mozzarella balls marinated in olive oil and herbs. Yay, me!Maybe if I were Martha, I would have known that antipasto wouldn't fly in our little cowboy town. Live and learn.
So, I decided to make some yummy sausage balls I remember my college roommate making wayyyyy back in the good days. I mean, those days when I could eat twenty of these and not get heartburn or gain five pounds. The good days are gone. Don't ask me how I know this to be true.
Now, my roommate was from.... Can you guess?? :D I'd been to the South before I met Gail, but I hadn't actually known any Southern people. We all know you can't have the South without Southerners. Those accents! The history! That food!
Awesomely delicious sausage cheese balls. (I don't think that's the real name, but we'll go with it.)
2 lbs good breakfast sausage.
4 cups Bisquick mix
2 pounds good sharp cheddar
We have a local organic cruelty free meat provider. (I wondered about that cruelty party, because... the pig is dead. And we're gonna eat it. But apparently it has to do with the before-the-killing part.)
I had to go buy some of this. Who knew you could make so much with Bisquick??
So, quick and easy and cruelty-free (no Bisquick was harmed in the making of this finger food).
In other news, I got an old dresser and was determined to bring it back to life.
But then, tragedy! Something had stained the bigger drawers, only two of them and only halfway. So when they were stripped, they looked... awful. Not clean. Not the tiger oak I was expecting. *SOB*
Miss Hilton Steele gave me good advice (as always) and told me to troll Pinterest. And two tone furniture kept popping up. Would it work??
Then I remember I had a whole bucket of knobs I picked up at a garage sale. There might be something.... And there was! Big brass knobs, perfect for little hands!
Until next time, my friends!
