Cheese straws for a birthday

The photo shows the bacon straws I made yesterday. There is cheese in the pastry which is then smeared with Dijon mustard. After laying the bacon strips on the pastry, you cut the pastry into strips then twist each strip. They are quite nice but I’m not sure I’ll make them again. They are to take up to Vince’s brother for his 73rd birthday celebration. His wife passed away just over 12 months ago and sometimes he’s a bit lost. But he’s having some musician friends to visit and we’ll have lunch together then a jam. He used to play for square dances with these guys and still gets together with them from time to time. A few years ago, one of them was Australian Bush Poet of the year. He's the same brother we’ve been doing the brick-paving with. He and Vince are closest in age of the seven siblings. We're staying the night so I may not be here much today.

The cheese straws look and sound very tasty but, if they're a pain in the tush to make, I might not try making them myself. I'll tell Pretty and see if she feels like helping me make some. Thanks for the idea. I hope you all enjoy the evening and happy birthday to your bil.
Those cheese straws reminded me of the cheese sticks I make. Its cheese cut into thin slices wrapped in spring roll wrapper then fried. Sprinkling it with cheese powder is optional. There's also those cheese cubes that we wrap in bacon slices then fry. Delicious! Good to eat once in a while.
