Today is Tax Day and National Cheeseball Day?

April 17, 2018

I can't make this stuff up people. Today is TAX DAY and NATIONAL CHEESEBALL DAY?!?! Is that some sort of sick coincidence?  What if we paid our taxes in CHEESE? Do you think Uncle Sam would accept that or throw us in jail ASAP?

 

Maybe they Uncle Sam won't accept payment for other reasons?

 

It's also NATIONAL CHEESEBALL DAY too! Do you know what that means? Neither do I, so i had to do some research:

"When you hear the word “cheeseball,” you probably think of that ugly Santa-and-Rudolph sweater that your Aunt Janice wears every Christmas without fail (and without irony). Or the corny old jokes that one friend of yours is always telling, the ones that make everyone roll their eyes. But cheeseballs are a thing, and a scrumptious thing at that. Think of them as a kind of freestanding dip, with all of your favorite party flavors rolled into one compact package of om-nom-nom-mability that will keep crackers comin’ back for more. Still can’t visualize man’s greatest creation? Read on, and get ready to smile demurely and answer, “Why, I did,” when you overhear fellow revelers asking repeatedly, “Who brought this amazing cheeseball?” That is what I found from Learndipity Worldwide, Inc.!  They also explain how to celebrate it....ready?

How to Celebrate National Cheeseball Day

1. Make a cheeseball (duh!)
Chances are you already have at least some cheeseball ingredients on hand, and the rest aren’t hard to find. Check out some of our favorite recipes below, or throw cheeseball caution to the wind and improvise! That chunk of pepper jack that’s too small to cover your plate of nachos? Some leftover pepperoni from pizza night? Half a jar of rainbow sprinkles languishing behind the cream of tartar? Ahem. Cheeseball it! (Not all together, guys. Unless spicy sprinkles are your jam, of course. We won’t judge.)

2. Throw a cheeseball making party
Spread the cheeseball love! Now that you’ve channeled some mad culinary skills, why not share your newfound cheeseball knowledge? After all, everyone loves cheese. Invite the squad and assign everyone an ingredient to contribute: cream cheese, shredded cheese, add-ins, crackers or other dippers. You’ll provide a couple of bottles of wine to get that cheeseball party started.

3. Eat your cheeseballs while watching cheesy movies
Clear off the coffee table and turn it into a cheeseball buffet, then pop in some DVDs or fire up the streaming video (hey, maybe together we can turn “Netflix and cheeseball” into the newest trend for 2017!). Suggestions include Spaceballs, Cannonball Run, Meatballs, Screwballs, Balls of Fury, Dodgeball… or you could, of course, eschew the “balls” theme and just watch cheesy movies. Or foodie movies. Or Game of Thrones. Again, no judgment from us.

Well I am in, what about you? Thanks again Learndipity Worldwide, Inc for explaining this in full detail, I can go on with my life again! :)
