Seeing as how I am a brand new BLOGGER I feel the need to share with the world one of my greatest feats. The notorious cheese log/ball!!
8 Lbs of Cream cheese
2 bags of shredded cheddar
3 packets ranch seasoning
roughly 4 cups of slivered almonds
Knead all ingredients except the almonds together in softball sized batches, then when its soft enough join them all together and create a shape that you find appealing. IE: Log, ball, snake, volcano, whatever works then roll it in the almonds or just mush 'em in to the sides. Stick some kind of decoration in it and serve! Your friends and family will marvel at your generosity and festive nature.
