We had a little gathering of friends over yesterday to play a rousing game of Killer Bunnies. This is a fun game. Pretty easy to pick up, with a few moments of "what am I doing?" The gist--keep your bunnies alive and kill your opponent's bunnies. This is just a game, not real life!
So with people coming over, I had to make some nibbles.
Mini-pigs in blankets. It was a cooler day, so the blankets were necessary. I took the mini weinies and wrapped them with small sections of packaged puff pastry. I brushed them with a little melted butter and baked them at 400 for 18 minutes. Delish.
I also make some Cheesey Sausage Balls. Mix 1 pound of sausage, 1 2-cup package of shredded cheddar cheese and 2 cups of Bisquick until well blended. Roll 1 TB of mixture into round balls and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Yum.
I made a double batch of my hummus. Who knew I would ever like hummus? I used to dislike it, but now enjoy it. If you can, use freshly roasted garlic for the best flavor.
This picture is not a finished product, but I have to share anyway. It is DOWNRIGHT ridiculous and worth every calorie. Turtle Cheesecake Dip! A cheesecake-like dip with pecans and chocolate chips. Later it was drizzled with chocolate sauce and caramel. I served with Nilla Wafers. You almost want to cry. There was one proclamation of "I'm marrying this dip." That didn't come from me, but I was ready to face plant into the middle of that bowl!
This is what happens to Boomer after she has a little of her wet food...she curls up and naps with a smile on her face...yes, my Kitty is related to me...I do (or wish I could) take a nap after my meals.
