Recipe

I am planning on having some people over this weekend which both excites me and terrifies me at the same time. Now normally having people over wouldn’t have me in a tizzy in fact it would be the opposite I would be excited to prepare the menu, cook, and entertain. I love it….when it’s people I know well and/or friends who likely use their stove for storage and appreciate anything. But this weekend is a little different there will definitely be faces I haven’t seen before.

So I am not doing something I never thought I would and testing some recipes before the weekend. Usually I am more in the spirit of just winging it, crossing my fingers, and hoping for the best, but this weekend calls for more So here is one of the recipes I tried and liked- a simple, easy to make Caprese appetizer. the trick is marinating the mozzerella and tomatoes before placing on the skewers. I am also making some with prosciutto in the middle and using grilled peaches instead of tomato for some others, but those all disappeared before I had a chance to take a picture.
