'Over the Hill' ~ a happy 50th party

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: 

Fruit Skewers
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!
