Yep, It Snowed Alright
The president of our very small condo association asked Scratch if he knew how to shovel snow. We were a little perturbed by that. While I understand that it is our first winter in this building, we are, in fact, functioning adult members of society. Unfortunately, when presented with that type of attitude I will go out of my way to make sure that person can never, EVER have anything on me. So yes, I went out at 6:30 this morning to shovel the front walk. Because someday, I will be able to pull that out. "Oh yeah? Like when I was shoveling the walk at 6:30 AM? Like that?" Someday.
I am really glad that it did not snow on Wednesday night, when I went to Borders to see Amy Sedaris plug her new entertaining book. It is hilarious. She makes me happy. Go buy her book or something!
In other news, I am super happy that it is the weekend! Wow! I can go grocery shopping, do laundry, and probably sweep, mop, and dust. Awesome! Have a great weekend!
Amy Sedaris' Cheese Ball Recipe
2 8 oz. packages cream cheese
2 cups shredded smoked Gouda
1 stick butter (Amy uses unsalted for everything)
2 tbsp. milk, cream, or half-and-half
2 tsp. A-l steak sauce
2 cups crushed nuts, any variety (Amy likes walnuts)
crackers for serving
Allow ingredients to soften to room temperature.
Beat them all together in a mixing bowl and form into a ball, or form
into several small balls to suit your function/needs. Roll in crushed
nuts and refrigerate. Remove from refrigerator and allow to soften
about 20 minutes before serving. Serve with crackers of your choice.
