This is our Exchange Daughter, Katharina from Germany, along with Schnitzel our Mini Weenie Stud Dog. It is Kata’s birthday this month and Schnitzel and the rest of Chile Acres wants to send her a big hug from across the ocean (well Schnitzel wanted to send a doggie treat actually) for her this special day. We love her and are proud of all she is doing with her life in Berlin. Her puppy, Lucky, is a son of Scnitzel and lives a life of luxury in her Berlin apartment. Dogs get to go almost anywhere there and Kata takes Lucky out daily for adventures.
Happy Birthday Kata and we are sending you a special package full of spiders–you will understand when you see it–for your birthday, and of course chocolate!
Here is an entertainment idea for your next party. These are easy and a crowd pleaser!
2 packs of crescent rolls
8oz of Barn Goddess Greek Fromage or Barn Goddess Feta Cheese
1 can drained and chopped water chestnuts
1 chopped garlic clove
8 oz chopped marinated artichoke hearts
Roll out the crescent rolls into an oven baking pan and use your fingers to squeese together gaps in the rolls and press up the sides of the pan to form a crust.
Bake at 375 until brown.
Mix all other ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Spread mixture over the cresent roll crust after it is browned and return it to the oven for 10-12 minutes until heated all the way through and bubbly(Bubbles loves the word bubbly).
Cut and serve in little squares. Enjoy!
One of the great things about the Central Phoenix Public Market is the customers! Kitty, one of our cheese customers told us of her appetizer recipe she served for her book club meeting. With her permission here it is!
1 dozen mini bell peppers
4 oz Barn Goddess Goat Cheese (Sun Dried Tomato, Imported French Herb, or your favorite)
Olive oil to brush the baking pan
Cut each mini bell in 1/2 to make small cups or lengthwise for small boats
Stuff each with cheese
Place on greased pan
Broil just before serving until golden brown
Serve with a great book to some super friends! Thanks Kitty!!
