Red & Green & Bleu

Last night we had a heckuva lot of holiday cheer with friends after the kids were snuggled in their beds.

We nibbled on the fruit(spoon)cake -Tossed back a few sidecars & burst into 70s & 80s song -& Never did get through the first hand of pitch.
But we did get through all the appetizers - pimento dip, bacon-wrapped dates & water chestnuts, and this bleu cheese spread [a recipe clipped from the Sunday paper a few weeks back]:

Bleu Cheese Spread
1/2 cup cottage cheese
6 oz bleu cheese crumbles
4 oz low-fat cream cheese, cubed
2 slices bacon, crumbled
2 green onions, chopped

Blend cottage cheese in mini food processor until smooth. Spoon into a microwave-safe bowl, add bleu and cream cheeses. Microwave on high 1-2 minutes (until mixture is heated through). Stir midway through cooking. Pour into a small bowl and garnish with bacon and green onions [I just mided those savory flavors right in!].

It. Is. Amazing.

May all your holiday parties be hearty!



  1. I think you mean "heated through". I hate it when I discover typing errors a month after I post. Too much Christmas cheer last night? Quick.. correct and delete my post. Thanks for the recipe. Sounds delicious.

  2. good call. i am usually trying to peel off a post while my kids circle me - hence the typos from time to time!

    it is yummy. make it. now!

  3. Thanks for a wonderful time. You are definitely the hostess with the mostest. The bacon wrapped dates and water chestnuts were to die for, along with the bleu cheese dip. And now I might just want to ride in a sidecar.
