Lovin' the suggestions here... I was just told to make the appetizers, so I do believe it's finally time to make the Spinach Balls I've heard soooo much about.
I'm also looking at a recipe for Onion Brie Appetizers from Aug/Sept. TOH magazine they're really interesting looking.
I think I'll pick up some olives and mix up some spiced pecans.
On another note, I must tell you all about a delicious and unique side that is never removed our from T-giving menu anymore.
2 c bread cubes or croutons (we use bread cubes and usually cut the crusts off- mom also lets them sit out a bit to get a little hardened)
1/2 cup melted margarine
1 (10 oz) can tomato puree
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Toss the bread cutbes with the melted margarine in a bowl. Spread in a baking dish. Spread in a baking dish.
Combine the tomato puree, brown sugar, water and salt in a saucepan. SImmer for 5 min. and then pour over the bread cubes.
Bake, covered at 325 for 45 minutes.
Yield: 8 servings- or more
I think it's very rich and can only eat a little bit- but that little bit is soo worth it!
Take time to explore the untraveled paths and secret gardens of this sweet life. ~unknown
