Today we had a little party at work. We all brought food and invited the other departments to join us. I ate myself stupid, y'all! Here's what we had:

Kahlua soaked, chocolate covered cherries
Goat cheese pesto tort
Homemade empanadas with two kinds of sauces
Homemade spinach dip
Pigs in a blanket
Ham biscuits
Homemade pimento cheese
French onion dip
and more!

My two favorite items:

Courtney's Drops of Deliciousness
On a cookie sheet, place one rolo on top of a mini pretzel. Melt the rolos in your oven. Press a pecan on top. Refrigerate.

Laura's Cream Cheese Logs
1 package cream cheese
1 cup finely chopped green onions
1 cup bacon crumbles
3/4 cup chopped pecans (toasted)
1 tsp red pepper flakes (more or less depending on your taste)
apple butter
Unwrap cream cheese (if you want to make two logs, cut it in half). In a mixing bowl, stir together green onion, bacon crumbles, toasted pecans and red pepper flakes. After mixing, spoon in apple butter until the consistency is a paste that will spread over the cream cheese to coat (you can refrigerate this overnight if you want). Cover the cream cheese logs with the paste and serve with triscuits. (Laura says: be careful not to add too much apple butter or it will slide off the cream cheese and be very ugly! You can use pumpkin butter this time of year in place of apple butter.)


  1. Luckily you don't have to eat too much to eat yourself stupid.

  2. You can't have a party in the South without Rotel dip.

  3. I've had something similar to the pumpkin butter cheese logs, but with bacon and green onions. It sounds disgusting but it is delicious!

  4. For a girl that doesn't like bell peppers because of the seeds, I am proud of your developing taste buds!! :)

  5. I like peppers! Someone else just has to prepare them for me. As in, Jennifer Bonds and Texas Caviar.


Oh goody!
