Birthday’s come once a year and my mom’s was yesterday! Celebrated Minions style
I threw a mini-family birthday party for her yesterday, which filled the living room with balloons, flowers, and presents. I love any excuse to have good food and dessert. Per her request, the family chose simple appetizer like dishes and a birthday pie. We are huge PIE people and love lots of fruit filled goodness.
Mom, you are loved and cherished!!!
On the Menu:
Homemade warm Jewish Egg bread made by Grandma
Cold Cuts and Cheese Platter
Decadent homemade Apple Pie with the filling oozing out the top
Sugar Cookies with sprinkles
Coconut Milk Mint Chip Ice Cream
We cut slices of fresh bread and made mini sandwiches and noshed on cookies. Someone in the group even slathered chocolate frosting onto a cookie!
There’s Dean Martin (or Dino as we like to call him) type music playing in the background.
I’m excited this 2019 year to create new meal and appetizer dishes that are easy and budget friendly! Currently, some of my favorite appetizers are:
Spinach Artichoke Dip
Caprese Mozzarella Skewers
Mini Pigs in a Blanket
Chips & Dip
Cheese & Crackers
Prosciutto Wrapped Stuffed Dates
What are your favorite appetizers?
