Yes, I know I need a manicure.

The cheese I used is Cabot’s Sharp White Cheddar, but you could go with whatever you like. Sharp cheddar has been my very favorite since I was little.

Speaking of little – my sister and niece are here for a visit this week! This kid can eat (you know I love it), and she especially loves ceviche, of all things. This is Liza putting away a whole bowl of guacamole with some ceviche thrown in there.

She’s just so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it.
