Cheese Ball Recipe with cream cheese, cheddar cheese, crackers, celery, parsley

Going into the colder months is no easy feat. We have to have something that tethers us, don’t you think? For some, it’s hunkering down at home with football games or knitting. Or both. You never know. Neither float my boat, but I’m all about pellet stoves, snuggles, soup, and books. I love long walks into the bath and the smell of wood burning smoke. Even though, Scarlet, when I was pregnant with you I hated that smell. (She doesn’t read my blog so I’m talking aloud to myself) The thing is, I have mountains to climb and mountains of photos to edit. We’re going away for a romantic weekend in NYC and I’m shuffling all the logistical kid and pet details. And I’m eating mini pumpkin cheese balls, because really how could you not?

If eating this cheese ball recipe is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
