I would have to say searching for a 50th party appetizer/food ideas was hard so I thought I would share some of my own I came up with.
Dessert/Snack table (cake goes far right)
Chocolate covered pretzels
See my previous blog for the recipe:
I found the fruit that worked the best & looked the best were grapes, pineapple & watermellon
Basil tomato bocconcini Appetizer
Wrap 1 basil leave, 1 cherry tomato and half a piece of bocconcini cheese then insert toothpick.
When complete, spray with balsamic vinegar
I also had greek yogurt spinach dip with whole grain flax chips
and honey garlic sesame chicken
Recipe for honey garlic sesame chicken ~ crockpot style ~
5-6 chicken breasts frozen
salt & pepper
3/4-1 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
4 tbsp diced onion
4 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp canola oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 6 tbsp water
Place chicken breasts in crockpot, season both sides of chicken with salt & pepper. In a small bowl combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pour over chicken.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours
Remove the chicken & cut into bite size pieces, leave sauce, and pour the cornstarch mix into the crockpot. Stir well, re-add chicken and cook for another 10 minutes or so until sauce has thickened.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds
Over the hill cake!
Happy 50th !
