Goat Cheese Spread

My husband gets together with friends every month for a Herf. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this term, here is the actual definition for this strange word: A lively gathering of cigar-smoking comrades who meet in a restaurant, club, cigar store or home to share their appreciation of fine cigars. While I am NOT an advocate of cigar smoking and I find it unbelievable that there is actually a word for such a gathering, it was our turn to host this event. Sometimes wives accompany the cigar smokers, sometimes there are women cigar smokers in the all depends on the month.  Think of it as a book club for men? Anyway, I usually put out a spread of heavy hors d'ouvres and this month, this was the hit of the party. When you read through the recipe, you will think it is way too time consuming, but really it isn't. If you used prepared pesto, all you have to do is mix the cream cheese blend and chop the sun dried tomatoes before you start layering. I made it the day before and it worked out great. Note that if your pesto has a lot of garlic in it, you should put less garlic in the cream cheese blend! Here is the link, Goat Cheese Spread.
