Saturday Sursee :: An Easy Appetizer- Sunflower Seed Studded Goat Cheese and Crackers

Hey gals,

Just needed to tell you that I needed to correct this recipe.  I use sunflower seeds not sesame seeds.  Ooopsy.  Below is the corrected version.  Sorry for the confusion.  

Sometimes you just need an easy, yummy appetizer.  This is it my friends.

Easy Appetizer

Sunflower Seed Studded Goat Cheese.  So easy, but so yummy.  A Sursee.

Buy a log of goat cheese, sunflower seeds and grab your honey and crackers.

Unwrap the goat cheese and lay on a piece of Saran Wrap that is bigger on all sides.  Then pour the sunflower seeds on top of the cheese and roll the cheese back and forth until it is covered.  Use the Saran Wrap to help you cover the whole log with the little seeds.  Sometimes it takes a little pressing to get the seeds to stick.  Then roll up the log in the Saran Wrap and wait till your guests arrive.

Place the log on a pretty plate and drizzle with honey.  Add the crackers to the plate and dig in.  I usually start the log by slicing off a piece with a little knife.  I say that I am doing that to help my guests, but I really am doing it because I love this appetizer and can’t wait for them to get there to start eating it.

This appetizer is so easy and so good.  Try it this weekend.  What is your go to Sursee Appetizer?Do tell.


Saturday Sursee :: A Cool Mint

Saturday Sursee- an amazing mint


I like carrying mints in my purse.  For those times when I need it or someone asks me for one, I can reach in and share.  I have tried lots of mints, and I know it sounds ridiculous but I love these little mints.  I found them before my trip to Indonesia and I liked the smaller size of the box.  The metal lid closes with a nice little click. And the cute little mints inside. Love!

I have been an Altoid fan, but the bigger box sometimes clanks around in my purse and the paper inside gets in the way and makes crackly sounds when I am trying to get one in church…

This little box-o-mints are a perfect Sursee to gift to a friend or a grown kid.  They are small enough to carry in a purse or a pocket.  And they are super wintry cool and fresh. Yay! A Saturday Sursee for your mouth.

What is your favorite mint?
