Garlic and Onion Cheese Ball from Jen's Favorite CookiesI have a couple friends that I have known since the dawn of time.  Friends who knew me when, and who forgave me anyway.

These awesome friends make sure we keep in touch with regular face-to-face visits, even though we are each about 45 minutes away from one another.  I can’t tell you how awesome it is to have friends like that.

We meet together about once a month, and we scrapbook or do a craft, or just talk and eat.

We always eat.  My friends make some fantastic grub, y’all.

I all out stole this cheese ball recipe from my awesome friend April.  Honestly, as much as I love cheese, I’ve had a hard time finding a cheese ball that really gets the job done.  This one is my hands-down favorite.  She always makes it for us on New Years Eve, and I always look forward to devouring it.

Our New Years Eve party is one of the few things the three of us bring our husbands to.  Our guys get to listen to us reminisce, and make fun of each other, and give one another parenting advice that will probably never be used.  Lucky guys, right?

They also get to play board games and drink diet soda to their hearts content, and of course eat plenty of snacks.
