The idea here is to plan something a little more mature than bean dip and chips, or nachos for the upcoming SUPER BOWL PARTY:
LIPTAUER CHEESE WITH CRACKERS
RUM PINEAPPLE DAIQUIRI
RUM PINEAPPLE PUNCH
8 (8 oz pkgs) cottage cheese
6 ( 8 0z pkgs) cream cheese
1 cup soft butter
2 (12 oz) anchovy fillets drained and mashed
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped capers
3 tbs caraway seeds
3 tbs paprika
1 tsp pepper
1 9 1/2 oz box of whole wheat wafers
1 (8oz) box round cheese crackers or your choice
Force 8 pkgs of cotttage cheese through a sieve and blend smoothly with all the cream cheese. add butter, onion, capers, caraway, paprika and pepper. Mix all together, then pack into small crock or glass bowl. Press foil or waxed paper tightly over cheese and let it ripen in refrigerator over night.
Serve from decorative bowls or turn out onto large platter and shape with a long saptula. Garnish with parsley sprigs. Surround with crackers.
