AN EASY HOLIDAY PARTY APPETIZER RECIPE

That one time I ate and ate and ate tortellini and olives and tomatoes and mozzarella cheese straight off the skewers and I didn’t stop until there was no mo’. Also? punctuation marks are overrated.

Hi Hello Hey! Guess what! Remember my whole talk about last Friday and taking my little ones to see Santa? And how they fuhreak out every time they get near him? You guys! It was a success! They in fact hugged him and sat next to him and gave him a list of toys they wanted and all that jazz. How fun! I was proud. And a bit moved because that just means they’re growing and a fat dude in a red suit ain’t got nothin’ on ’em. 😉

Aren’t they AWWW! SO CUUUUUUTE!

I want to tell you this was all about Christmas dinner planning, buuuuut it was just another manic Monday. I wished it was Sunday, ’cause that’s my eat-all-you-want day.

I cheated and ate more than a Monday should allow ’cause, you know that whole spiel about Mondays are when we all “start” to diet. Day.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, with all the riff raff in this world, all the uncertainty and quandary, the only true thing we can know in this life and have control over is…

…an enormous platter filled with some of our favorite foods threaded on a skewer.

This is how we do it. The biggest, fattest appetizer ever includes basically everything I love minus the salami. I decided to go meatless on you today, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t include it.

Also? My favorite snack, STAR’s Pimiento Stuffed Manzanilla Olives are all over these skewers and for a reason(s); sugar free, cholesterol free, trans fat free, low carb AND gluten free. Olives contain omega 9 monounsaturated fat and are a good source of antioxidants including vitamin E.
SEE? HIGH FIVE on the nutrish!!

Green Olives are best known as a garnish in martinis, but they have many, many other uses: you can add them to salads, such as a potato salad or a macaroni salad. You can also add them to deviled eggs, pasta, pizza, etc… And obviously, you can also eat them straight off a skewer. Drizzled with a bit of STAR’s Signature Series Extra Virgin Olive Oil and STAR’s Balsamic Vinegar, these skewers are just everything I want out of life forever and ever. Really I do.

    My husband laughed at me when I said I wanted to take our 8 week old to see Santa! I mean…come on! It’s his first Christmas and at least he is (hopefully) to young to be scared of him and start crying!
    And I am going to join you in devouring all the tortellini!

    These would not last long at my house, mainly because I’d eat them before anyone else could get to them! Such a perfect appetizer!

  4. These look delicious – I love how colorful they are, and how many different flavors are in this. Such a fun app!

    I was always afraid to eat green olives, LOL. Until we started going to this farmers market that has the best empanadas. And inside each one is a green olive, and it’s fabulous. Now, I love them! these skewers look awesome ๐Ÿ™‚
