Here is the link for the Greek Stewed String Beans. We brought these to dinner on Christmas Eve for the Dumper side of the family. I have never had so many complements on a dish!


Winter Fruit Salad

Pineapple (fresh preferred, frozen ok)
Ruby Red Grapefruit
Apples (optional, toss in lemon-lime soda to keep them from turning brown)

Tortellini Skewers / Salad

This is great to serve on skewers as appetizers, but its also great to just toss together and serve with your easy weeknight meal. Mix and match your favorite ingredients!  

4-6oz pre-made pesto
1 pkg frozen tortellini
1 pkg cherry tomatoes
6 inch skewers
handful klamata olives
fresh mozzarella balls
artichoke hearts

Cook pasta, drain. Toss with pesto.
Add additional olive oil, salt and pepper- only if needed.
Assemble on skewers. Serve at room temp.
