SUPER BOWL PIGS IN A BLANKET

FUN WITH PUFF PASTRY

Mortadella Bites: To make 24 of these cute, different and yummy pigs in the blanket, you will need the deli to slice you 2 slices of Mortadella about 1/2 inches thick. When home you will need to cut each slice into 12 smaller pieces. Roll out one sheet of thawed puff pastry. Roll out just enough to flatten out a bit. Make 24 long slices of pastry and wrap each piece of Mortadella with a slice of pastry. Make sure the meat sticks out a bit on each end. Lay seam side down onto a parchment lined bake sheet. Brush the tops of each with egg wash. Sprinkle on top a bit of shredded cheese. Gruyere or swiss or maybe the Italian cheese blend that is shredded in the package. Bake 375 for about 20-25 minutes until golden. Platter up and serve some mustards on the side for dipping. IMG_0509I got this recipe from: Giada at Home. These are wonderful. And I will be making them again. I set out a little bowl of 2 different mustards and they were Yummy. Enjoy the recipe and enjoy your day.

RINGING IN THE NEW YEAR

Whether you want to celebrate the new year with a family party or a sleep over bash for your kids, here are some ideas to start the year right:

CLOCKFACE CAKE: Frost a round cake with white icing and use decorating gel to draw clock hands striking midnight.

RESOLUTION LETTERS: Write letters to yourselves, seal them in envelopes, and promise not to open them until the NEXT New Year’s Eve.

FRESH NEW YEAR: Open all your doors and windows ( for just a minute if it is cold out ) and let the new year breeze into your home.

GOOD LUCK: Serve Hoppin’ John or black-eyed peas, a traditional New Year’s good luck charm in the south.
