Welcome to my special Christmas blog post.
I always have some type of bread - French roll, white bread, baguette, etc - in my pantry. Bread is always great to have on hand for making a quick sandwich for lunch or brunch but it can also be used to craft some more unique dishes.
I decided to use some of the bread in my pantry to create a savory Christmas appetizer. When you use what’s already on hand in your home, you save money! So grab that bread from your pantry and create the perfect Christmas appetizer for your holiday gathering. Just be sure to save some slices for delicious leftovers the next day. Simply add your leftover meat, some fresh greens, and cranberry sauce. Then drizzle with dressing. Now you have an extra (and delicious) meal to enjoy.
Since I had some French rolls already at home, I decided to create a tasty crostini to serve as an hors d’oeuvre that also pairs very well with wine or a cocktail. Crostini is a perfect and fun option to serve as a starter when hosting a party, having the gang over to watch football, or even just a light snack to serve for a small gathering (i.e. bookclub, neighborhood meeting, etc). This is a dish you can create over and over even after the holidays.
Though, my Prosciutto, Arugula; Balsamic-Glazed Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Crostini recipe is a terrific option for your holiday dinner party to entertain guests. All of the ingredients and flavors balance well together and truly complement one another. Topped with a hint of fresh thyme and honey balsamic sauce, this delightful bite is finished off with the perfect combination of sweet, savory, and tangy. These simple ingredients create something magical for your Christmas dinner parties. If you need a vegetarian option to serve, too, simply leave out the prosciutto.

"You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart, maybe you'll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. That's the burden.Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us" Bones
