My Go To Appetizers

August 26, 2013

What a wonderful weekend! I had such a great time hanging out with my girls.  I feel so blessed to have such wonderful women in my life.  Here’s a little photo diary of photos we took throughout this weekend.

 

It’s so fun to reconnect and spend quality time with your people.  If you haven’t taken advantage of an opportunity like this in a while, I highly encourage you to make it happen soon.

 

Speaking of hosting and gathering with friends, I wanted to share my favorite appetizer combinations with you.  These aren’t really recipes, as much as a couple of new products I’ve tried and loved.  They have become my new go-to when it comes to entertaining.

 

The first is Rosemary and Olive Oil Triscuits with Trader Joe’s Lite Sharp Cheddar Cheese.  The combination of these flavors is a party in your mouth.  I think of this scene from Ratatouille. Fireworks.  This is a great treat for your guests and SO easy to prepare.

The second thing is an easy Bruschetta.  Why so easy?  I bought it pre-made in a jar from Trader Joe’s.

This bruschetta is the bomb dot com.  Seriously, go buy it!

Finally, it’s always nice to serve some baby carrots and small pieces of pear.  Light and healthy to munch on.

 

Those are my favorite go-to appetizers.  What do you like to serve your guests?  Any easy tips?
