We usually do a cheeseball with crackers. That's all. Sometimes we'll do veggies and dip but most often just the cheeseball.

This year I'm making a crab and pesto cheesecake, Chex Mix, and chilled shrimp. My mother in law is bringing the healthy stuff like fruits and veggies. The tradition is the same for Christmas day.
I am very interested in a crab and pesto cheesecake, recipe Please!! And Welcome to DC.

First thing i thought of when I read it! I make a salmon/caviar one that is pretty yummy. Pretty sure I already posted the recipe. I will check. This seems like a perfect use for crab.

Me too!

Would love yours too, 4Me. It sounds like a fantastic dish we had years ago when we ate at a remote restaurant in St. Martin.

Take a large stuffed green olive and mold cream cheese around it then roll it in chopped walnuts. Allow to chill till firm then slice in half.

there'll also be a platter of pickles and olives if tradition holds up. just a little something salty and bright to start the appetite.
Mine did the same thing, BT.

We always had black olives stuffed with cream cheese, green olives, sweet pickles and a veggie tray. I realized later these were made by the kids to keep them busy while Mom did the main dish.

We were only allowed one olive for every ten we stuffed while we were creating.
