Step One: Kick everyone out of the kitchen; they only get in the way.

Step Two: Invite them in to do the grunge chores like washing, chopping, grating and cleaning up. They ate, didn’t they?

Be sure to leave the kitchen while they’re making a mess of your kitchen; it will save you a lot of grief.

This recipe is dedicated to my friend John, who if he lived closer than a million miles away, I’d run over a few cheese balls I just made to him -- okay, they’re half made at the moment.

Get out the trusty hand grater, because the processor is to noisy. Remember, it’s now 3 a.m.

Gather ingredients:
