I just realized the forth of July is around the corner. This year will be a little different for our family. We won't be home. Our son's getting married on the sixth 'up North'. So we will be traveling. So I thought I'd share some recipes with you that are simple and takes just a few minutes to put together. They make you look like a Martha hostess.
OLIVE CHEESE BALL
8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 small jar of pimento stuffed green olives, chopped into small pieces
1/2 can pitted black olives, chopped into small pieces
A few shots of hot sauce (to taste)
Garlic powder to taste
1 cherry (optional)
Mix all ingredients except the cherry. Roll into a ball and plop the cherry on top. Place in an air tight container and refrigerate.
This looks nice on an American fiesta table. The black olives appear navy blue. Red, (pimento) white, (cream cheese) and blue.
