We had a Christmas party last night and we were all supposed to bring an appetizer. Well- when I asked what everyone planned to bring, I found that most of my stand by recipes were already being made by friends.
So- where to turn? The mothership of all ideas... Pinterest.
These were pretty yummy! However, I think the Sangria part was overstated. None of us liked it. I wish I'd used Barefoot or something sweeter. I also think poking holes in the grapes with toothpicks would have worked better. All in all, though, they were super easy and people really liked them. :) The full recipe can be found on a link on this girl's page. I like her post best because she calls them Snozzberries and who doesn't like that?!
The other bit of yummy I want to share is a pretty healthy recipe I found (also from Pinterest... of course). It's a quinoa Mexican dish. It was pretty yummy! We forgot the lime and cilantro and I liked it fine--- for his second helping, hubby added it and I didn't care for it.
Anyway, for a healthy recipe, I'd give it a 9.5. For a recipe of any kind, I'd give it a 7.5. (Be honest... a piece of bacon gets a 10 on the regular scale... a quinoa dish isn't gonna rank as high if bacon is in the same competition...) It was very flavorful and even baby J liked it! It was a smidge spicy for him though so we let him out of eating the whole helping. I'll probably cut the jalapeno amount in half for next time. Still- hubby and I agree it was very filling and tasty for a healthy dish. We plan to have it once every couple of weeks. :) **Had to come back and add the link because I forgot... here ya go! :)
DON'T skip on adding avocado to the top. TOTALLY makes the dish!
