Eric: OMG! Kelli, I love your food list! I LOVE my Mom's cheeseball! I actually took it to my holiday potluck at work - it was a hit! It's so 70's Midwest, and I LOVE it!!! And my sister-in-law and I battle back and forth because she requests the green bean casserole and I want the broccoli casserole... I won this year!!!
