I have a big week coming up. Three days at convention will leave no time for cooking. Better have a plan! Then, we head out of town to see my sweet middle son graduate college with honors. I am so proud of his accomplishments, and happy that God has blessed him with such talent. He was artistic from his early days. He can make art out of anything pretty much like I can make a recipe out of most anything. Unless a job calls him away really soon, he will be moving back home full time. I love having my boys around, so I am really happy. Not that I don't want him to get a good job; I do. I would just prefer it be nearby his Mom.
These little cheeseballs on a stick would be perfect graduation party food. Maybe you have a graduate too? With all the cake and punch receptions, these would surely be appreciated.
Bacon Crusted Cheeseballs on a Stick
6 slices of bacon
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheese
2 tbsp chopped fresh chives
3/4 tsp garlic powder
Soften cream cheese. Fry bacon until crisp and set aside to cool. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, shredded cheese, chives and garlic powder. Chill for 20-30 minutes. Crumble bacon. If using thick sliced, you may need to cut it with kitchen shears. Place the crumbles in a shallow small bowl. Using a scoop or spoon, roll a walnut sized ball of cheese. Coat it with bacon crumbles and set it on a plate. Repeat with the remaining cheeseball mixture. Place lollipop sticks or food picks into each cheeseball. Chill until serving time.

If you are in a time crunch, you might use the packaged bacon crumbles, but ours with the thick chunks of bacon have wonderful flavor!
