Are you looking for a treat to make your party guests? I love to entertain. I wish that I had more time and money to do it more often.
I guess we should be thankful for the time that we get to spend with friends and family albeit not enough. Can you tell that Thanksgiving is approaching as I am becoming more reflective of the things that are really important…..besides food.
So get busy and plan a get together with the people that are important to you. Include some great food like these delicious little potato poppers. I will be posting some other great things to serve for holiday parties. My delicious stuffed mini meatloaves would go great with these and they could be prepared ahead of time.
Enjoy your friends and your food. Oh gosh don’t forget to plan your cocktails as well.Print
