Easy Appetizer

We had friends over last Friday night and of course this was the only picture I took! I'm so bad about taking pictures sometimes. I served Pesto Pasta with Chicken, they brought a salad, and we had this amazing bread and vinegar/olive oil for dipping.

I love this appetizer because it is so simple, yet so good! It's served at many Italian restaurants in our area. You can use any kind of rustic or artisan bread. I bought a Kalamata Olive bread from a wonderful little bakery nearby. For dipping, you simply pour 2 parts olive oil in a bowl or on a plate and 1 part balsamic vinegar. You figure out what you like best and adjust it accordingly! I added a tsp of chopped garlic and a little salt and pepper to taste. Yum! It really makes a great presentation as well.

I hope you have a wonderful day today! After work, I'm going to catch up on laundry and work on an autobiographical essay that I need to submit with an application to a local bible college, that I'll be starting at in the fall to complete my bachelor's degree. They have a great program for working adults. I'm actually really excited to start the program and finally finish my degree.

Have a blessed day!

Thanks for your nice comment back. You are so lucky that you married young and yes, you do have plenty of time! Enjoy it!! Enjoy sleeping in....going out for movies or dinner whenever you feel like it. I felt like at 27 I was ready to have kids, and I'm glad I didn't have them any older because it is tiring! Lol! All the best!

Brittany, thank you for posting this recipe. Every time I have it at a restaurant, I think, "Hey I need to get ahold of that recipe," and then I forget about it. I bet it's really good with the added garlic! Hope you had a good day, now that you're back to work and Spring break is over.

Dear Brittany,
Thanks for the appetizer recipe--we love Italian food!!! I'll have to try this. I'm glad you have found a college program that works with your job schedule. Both my husband and I worked and attended college classes and I know how hard it can be to schedule. I think some colleges are finally catching on to the fact that we have other responsiblities as well!! God bless--
