So, back to the title. On New Year's we went to our friends' (Nick and Megan... newlyweds-woohoo) and I made a beer/cheese fondue. It wasn't good. I have made it before and used a light beer. It was good then. All I had this time was a Guinness and it just... well, wasn't good. Strike one.
On tonight's book club menu: homemade salsa, homemade queso out of a jar :), and salami smeared with cream cheese and wrapped around a mini dill pickle with a toothpick through the middle. (that's the official name, yes:))
Sounds like the grossest thing ever, right? I think so, too. I'm not a big meat eater. What meat I do eat, I am really picky about. (Meaning that for every bite of something meat that I eat, Dustin's plate gets at least 3 bites' worth of "this looks gross, you eat it") I'm lucky to have a hubby who plays along.
But--- these things are de.lic.ious. I can eat my weight in these bad boys.
Nutritional information: Meat, dairy, veggie. That's healthy... right?
I warned the girls. I told them what I was making, using the official name, of course. I admitted that it sounds like the nastiest thing ever and that based off the description (and the looks, to be honest) they aren't anything that I would ever eat in a million years. But I did. And fell in love. And there is no going back. Boy-oh-boy these babies are definitely craveable. (Spell check tells me this isn't a word... humor me)
Yeah, I know, they look nasty.
Now, let's just hope that these aren't strike two for me and my appetizers.
I'd hate to become the "do you want me to bring anything??."
"Uhhh-----no, that's fine, I think we have it covered" person.
Now, as long as the girls like my salami smeared with cream cheese and wrapped around a mini dill pickle with a toothpick through the middle, the night will be a success. Well, that and if the puppy (and kitten) don't yack up the salami I gave them when I was done making these... at least not when the company is all here anyway... (sorry....but it is the truth..). :)
Any book suggestions for our Feb book?
