Joy Of Cooking Update: Situation Normal In Cheese Ball City

Posted by Trott

I didn't bother blogging about making the Taramasalata because I completely ruined it. I accidentally added many times the rice potatoes called for in the recipe. This was a bit of a shame because there was somewhat of an adventure trying to locate taram. (We ended up getting it at Indus in Berkeley.) Rather than try to make it again, I moved on.

The Cream Cheese Ball (pictured, photo by Humuhumu) fared only slightly better. I made it and tasted one bite, but didn't feel much like eating it after that. Neither did Humu. It ended up in the trash after a few days in the refrigerator.

These two events may be a sign of Joy of Cooking Project burn-out. However, an opportunity to get a recipe out of the way by bringing the result to a special event or party should never be passed up! That brings us to the Cheddar Cheese Ball.

My coworker Kirk does the AIDS Ride every year. This year, we're having a small party at work where people can donate money to the cause or otherwise offer support. I've made a donation and I've made a cheddar cheese ball.

Please consider making a donation at Kirk's AIDS/Lifecycle home page.
