I do my grocery shopping on the weekends like most people… but this past weekend I went early so I could pick up some snacks for us to eat while we watched the football games.

I was so excited to turn these cheese sticks into homemade antipasto skewers with the cheese cut into chunks and fresh tomatoes and other yummy veggies… drizzled with balsamic vinegar. But that almost didn’t happen because the girls ate almost all of the cheese before I could get to it!

I did make the skewers and the girls liked my recipe… but they were more excited about just eating the cheese plain.

My middle daughter kept saying how much creamier and more flavorful  Crystal Farms cheese tasted to her. She loved it… 

So even though I created a really awesome recipe, I was reminded that sometimes less is more. We ended up snacking on the cheese right when we got home, during a little impromptu outdoor picnic and then again during the game with the antipasto skewers. After I saw how much they loved the cheese plain, “less is more” is my new mantra!

This was my first time hearing about Crystal Farms… even though they have been making cheese since 1926!

We said “cheers” to Crystal Farms Cheese because it is a natural product with few preservatives. It is also a rich source of calcium, gluten free and lactose tolerant.
