A few weeks back I was searching the fridge to see what appeared. Somehow, I always feel that the longer I look the greater the chance of some miracle happening! I started putting things together and came up with these. I loved them so much that I served them the other night at a small dinner party. There is a reference to that in the Entertaining Friends post.
This is a wonderful appetizer for hot summer evenings as it can be served cold and is even more delicious this way, I think!!!
This was one of the appetizers served at the dinner last night. See over at Entertaining Friends.
I really do love shrimp and I thought this was quite yummy. I think the dip really made the dish. However, after thinking about it today I think you could also serve them with fresh squeezed lemon. Try what you prefer the best!
These are just so delicious! I can't express how delicious they are through words, so you are going to have to make them for yourself. I made these for the first time at a party two summers ago and I loved them then and I still love them now. Last night I served them at a small dinner party. That is written about over in the Entertaining Friends post.
The idea for this cocktail came from The Pioneer Woman. I did not follow that recipe exactly, so I kind of came up with my own version. However, I did do the sugar lime rim exactly as she did in hers. So delicious!
I absolutely love hummus. It is great as a dip, in sandwiches and to accompany many dishes. As much as I love regular hummus, this is a nice alternative for when you want to switch things up a bit. The roasted peppers really give it a sweet flavour. Really nice. This was a dip served at the dinner on the Entertaining Friends post.
It was a busy day yesterday.
Last night I hosted a small dinner for a few special ladies. It was an evening full of food, drinks and lots of laughter. There is not much that gives me more pleasure than making food for people I care about.
Below you can see a few snaps of what we got up to. I missed a few dishes....let's blame that on the cocktails!
Recipes will follow in individual postings as soon as I get the chance to write them up. But here you can get the chance to see what the evening looked like in food!!!
