Party Planning Time

Are you ready for tomorrow? Have you started prepping your meal? Do you still have some last minute additions needed to your party/meal plan? Maybe an appetizer? If so, you've come to the right place. I've got you covered with the most simple, but absolutely delicious "nibbly bit" (as my Monkey calls them) perfect for your party table!

Now to be honest, when I decided to post this, I wasn't even thinking appetizers for your Thanksgiving celebration. I actually tested this recipe a couple weeks ago, already thinking ahead to our annual New Year's Eve appetizer blow out. As many of you know, each year the 3 of us stay in, I make a big spread of appetizers and fun foods, we eat all night, watch movies and ring in the New Year! So about this time of year I begin to look for new things to offer on my table that night, and this will definitely make the list this year!

But then I got to thinking, I shouldn't wait to share this with you. I know many of you need appetizers for your Turkey Day weekend, all of the holiday parties coming our way, Christmas celebrations, so many parties, so little time. So, all of us can always use something quick, simple and yummy to throw together, maybe even at the last minute!

How much better can you get than olives, cream cheese and bacon. Yes, BACON! These are especially nice because you can make batches of them throughout your party, without having to be in the kitchen too long, so your guests always have fresh ones to enjoy.

Party planning time is here people. This time of year we all have so many to attend, and I hope like me, you're looking forward to each and every one. But that doesn't mean we still don't need easy ideas to make the holidays just a little less stressful on ourselves!
