Today we approach December 25 some celebrate Christmas, some are just waiting for the year to end. The year has had many changes. We have missed many milestones, birthdays, weddings, parties, entertainment, and festivities. We have not been able to share many in person-times of need.
Have you been thinking about the things, foods, entertainments you can enjoy in small gatherings of 2 or in your small bubble? How about a board game like checkers, Small World, and Carcasonne. I also enjoy a card game that is called Magic The Gathering. Do you want to know about Magic The Gathering
What about snacks or hors d’oeuvres for you and your small bubble? As I mentioned in my last post, in years past I had guests at my home for an open house. This year we will have 3, not my whole big family and friends. So we bought some jalapeno poppers, fresh-cut veggies with homemade dip, and brie cheese. I will bake that in my little brie dish that my friend shared with me when they moved. I put them in tinfoil and bake them in the oven. I was thinking of doing a cranberry, rosemary brie. (I know this recipe says serves 4 to 8, we will have half reheated the next day). We have some chicken wings, cheese and crackers, olives, chocolates, and our homemade spicy pickles.
Baked Brie 180°C/350°F (all oven types) for 15 min then let it stand (sit out of the oven) for 5 so it will not spill over. Brie was first made in the Middle ages.
While putting this post together I found out there is a difference between hors d’oeuvres and appetizer’s. It is when it is served and how. Appetizers are served before a main meal and you often get one per person. Hors d’oeuvres are one bite that you might be served a variety of different mouthfuls!
My family and I have been planning gluten and corn free gingerbread house gingerbread art (we talked about a gingerbread house, I said what about a gingerbread truck) I might do a special post once it is done. Hummus is another thing we really like, I make all my stuff without garlic. I make yummy curry hummus.
If you are inspired to make some appetizers/ hors d’oeuvres for light company here are many neat things for many health requirement or choices. 50 great ideas for vegan appetizer’s.
I have tried using cucumbers like crackers with humus and pickle on top they are a great option for people that are changing the carbohydrates having to eat Renal diets to help their kidney or that in their diets, you would not use the humus if you where lowing carbs.
We have been taking time to watch Kim’s Convenience Store on Netflix. Last year when plays were still something people went to the theater to see, We saw the play this show is based on. I hope you all have a peaceful week, may your lives and hearts be filled with blessings. Looking forward to reading how you all filled your time, the wonderful foods and things your shared!
