Easy Holiday Appetizer

It seems busier than ever and I’m not sure why. Maybe because my kids are getting older, which means more to do, and there was a bit of traveling during November to keep us on our toes. I can hardly believe Christmas is less than 2 weeks away. I’m all about keeping things simple this year. I’ve never had or made Cucumber Rolls before making this recipe, but I loved the flavors of feta with kalamata olives and sundried tomatoes inside refreshing cucumbers. What do you do to keep things simple during this time of year?

Cowboy Sushi

This is one of those dishes that seem to be a regional favorite and family specific. This little delight is something I was introduced to the first time I went to a family reunion for The Good Husband. If you can't tell what it is, it is cream cheese, Budding Beef and pickles. My family served something similar but our version was cream cheese, salami and green onion. This is a popular appetizer 'round our family and I have seen uncles fight over the last pickle.

This is a relatively new dish to me and no one seemed to have a name for it. I give you: Cowboy Sushi! Ingredients: 6 large whole kosher dill pickles 3 packages Buddig Beef 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened Directions: ~Spread a thin layer of cream cheese over one slice of beef. ~Roll the two slices of beef around one whole pickle.

Today, class, it being late July and all, we’re going to examine our zucchini facts: •Zucchini is always at the end of any A-to-Z food list; •Zucchini and fruitcake are the undeserving targets of many a joke; •The zucchini plant literally grows like a weed, making it absolutely ubiquitous in vegetable gardens across America; •And for that reason, enterprising cooks have discovered ways to turn it into muffins, and cake, and pancakes, and… Baked Zucchini Sticks.

Baked Zucchini Sticks and Sweet Onion Dip: that bloomin’ zucchini!

You know that onion appetizer that came into bloom back in the late ’80s? Outback Steakhouse claims it invented the “Bloomin’ Onion” back in 1988, and it wasn’t long before quasi-fast food restaurants adopted it as the hottest appetizer since artichoke dip baked in a bread bowl. These zucchini sticks, with their melty-soft interior and crisp crust, are reminiscent of those onions – and equally addictive, especially when served with their special onion-mustard dip.
