I have been laughing about this for days! I love those crazy people!
Okay now the food. I have been working on some easy to eat party foods lately because of an event that I am doing for a friend's sister, and this is one of the things that I am doing for her.
- 1 red bell pepper
- 4 oz. herb infused Goat cheese
- 1 leek (finely chopped)
- 1 baguette
- olive oil
- salt and pepper
In a small skillet, saute the leeks in a bit of olive oil. You can use onions as a substitute but the leeks have more of a crunch after they are cooked than an onion has, but if you prefer onions- go for it! Place them in a bowl after cooking and reserve.
Now it is time to assemble. Spread a bit of goat cheese on the crostinis with the back of a spoon. It is gentler than using a knife and your are less likely to break them. Next, place a cube of roasted red pepper and then top with leeks. Finish with a little freshly ground black pepper and you are ready to serve.
- 1 medium yellow onion, diced
- 2T olive oil
- 4 ripe avocados
- 4T cilantro
- 1/2 cup of freshly diced tomatoes
- 1 lime
- 3T Balsamic vinegar
- 2t salt
- 2t black pepper
Saute the onions in 2T of olive oil until they are slightly brown, but not burned. Take them off the heat and place them on a plate. Refrigerate the onions until the next steps are complete. Peel and pit your avocados, and place them in a large mixing bowl. Dice your tomato and add to avocados. Finely chop the cilantro, add it to the avocados, and squeeze the lime juice into the mixture as well. Mash them all together. You can use your hand, but it gets messy. I have found that using a beater from the electric hand mixer works very well. It doesn't matter really how you do it, as long as it gets mashed. Next stir in the Balsamic vinegar, salt, black pepper and chilled onions.
Now it is on to H! Does anyone Have and suggestions or requests? Post a comment and I will see what I can do. I Have ideas, but Hearing from you is always fun.
