On Our Plates: Mama Rita-sita-pita's Cheeseball

One of Mommy's dear college friends, Kristin, is getting married this Saturday. Kristin is the most caring, attentive, and generous friend you could ever ask for...bonus: she's a Xavier grad, and therefore, brilliant. 
Aaron has no idea how lucky he is. So excited for her! And him! So excited to see the rest of the Xavier girls! 
In honor of the upcoming nuptials, we offer you a recipe. Kristin's mom, living more than a hundred miles away, always made sure we were having fun in school. Providing a delicious cheeseball was among the greatest of her contributions.
Mama Rita-sita-pita's Cheeseball

2 - 8 oz blocks cream cheese
1 jar Old English Cheese
2 T. blue cheese
1 (VERY!) small purple onion, finely chopped
1 bag chopped pecans

Let cream cheese soften. Mix all ingredients together except pecans with an electric mixer. Form into a ball and cover in pecan pieces (the more the merrier). Serve with Wheat Thins and Triscuits.
Eat it and dream of the college days.
