So, here is what I came up with food wise...
- A veggie tray. I cut up some red, green and yellow peppers, a large cucumber, some celery and I stuck some carrots on there as well. I used a fat free ranch dressing to dip, but since it was pretty flavorless, I added some garlic powder, basil and salt and pepper to liven it up.
- Cheese and crackers. Very simple, yet always a favorite. I used sharp cheddar and monterey jack with a simple cracker. Yummm!
- Cherry tomatoes, basil and mozzarella cheese on toothpicks. This is a staple in my house. I use this recipe all the time - people love it! I used a balsamic dressing for dipping.
- Strawberries and raspberries. I cut up some strawberries and threw some raspberries in a bowl and had fat free whipped cream to dip the fruit. I thought it would be a nice touch to add some sweetness.
The final spread...
I can't forget the wine! We finished approximately 5 bottles of wine... holy cow! The Bachelor will do that to ya! : )
