The holidays are finally here! I know, it feels like they’ve been coming for months (and they have) but hopefully by now you’re pretty much done with the shopping and wrapping and all that good stuff. This is the best part, when all that work is done and you can enjoy your family and friends.
I LOVE these Simply Enjoy products. This stuff is less pricey than the name brands and it is amazingly good. Seriously! I served these Simply Enjoy Pepper and Poppy Water Crackers with the Simply Enjoy Sweet Potato Harissa Dip and everyone loved it. My daughter was spreading dip between two crackers and eating it like a sandwich.
The smoked salmon is so easy to serve, and while I was plating that up, I threw these Simply Enjoy Spanakopita into the oven. They are SO good and perfect finger food for a party.
Fresh pasta is so much better than frozen and these tri-colored fresh tortellini cooked up in a snap. I tossed a spoonful of Simply Enjoy Limoncello Pesto Sauce on top (which is SO flavorful and delicious) and the kids ate it right up.
This spread was a total hit and I LOVED how easy it was to get on the table. People love a variety of snacky type foods and I think the addition of the pasta made it feel like enough of a meal that everyone was satisfied.
Next, dessert! Let me tell you, these Dark Chocolate Topped Mini Eclairs were amazing. I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but we didn’t leave the table until all 30 of them were gone. You are supposed to defrost them ahead of time, and I did just a bit, but they were still nice a cold and SO good like that. They’re small so it’s okay to eat several. 😉
This dessert was perfect, more finger food that makes serving it pretty much no work at all, and it was a hit with everyone.
Along the line of easy desserts, keep your eyes out for GIANT Food Stores’ Peppermint Limited Time Originals. I really wanted to show you the Peppermint Chocolate Sandwich Cookies but sorry, we ate them too fast. Omigosh, get some. They are AMAZING!!! And the bark is so good too, perfect for breaking up and putting on a pretty serving plate for your guests.
Entertaining doesn’t have to be a major source of stress. It can be easy, delicious, and totally affordable with these options from GIANT Food Stores! That gives you more time to hang with your friends and family -a win all the way around!
