So that invite to a New Year’s Eve Bash turns out to be “pot luck” or there’s just one more something-something you want to put out for your own cocktail spread. Don’t worry, these delicious Crab Points will win rave review with almost no effort.
Aren’t these canapés simply beautiful? I love the play on Christmas Colors – the greens of the basil and the reds of the tomatoes. Perfect little gems if you ask me. What? Christmas appetizers and we haven’t even had Turkey Day yet?
Poor Thanksgiving, that quintessential American Holiday, is so often left by the wayside as we rush from the sugar high of Halloween head long into the madness of Black Friday. In our rush to plan ahead, we sometimes forget to savor the joys of Giving Thanks. I’m all in favor of thinking ahead and making plans – the holidays are hectic enough, it’s best to have a plan – especially with all those office parties and pot lucks coming our way as we count down the shopping days in our hunt for the perfect gift. But if it’s all the same to you, I’d like to slow it down a little. With the holiday just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what to serve beyond the usual suspects. After all, Thanksgiving is a day of grazing.
