I got a feeling

I can't even begin to describe the marvelous feeling I woke with today...

but I am going to try...

It's a feeling of joy and excitement, of knowing that today is FRIDAY, yippeee!


Oh what a wonderful feeling!!!

Christmas celebrations officially start tomorrow. We are attending our very first Holiday Party at our friends Jo & Chris's house. Last time I talked to Jo she said that this year they are having an "Italian" theme so that if I wanted to bring something, just think around those lines...

So, I am bringing some Antipasto Kebabs, hopefully those would be good.

Here's the recipe I'm trying.[ Please keep in mind that if you decide to make these, there are endless possibilities of what to put on them, like cherry tomatoes, small pickels, grapes, etc....]

I will use for my version:

1  9 oz package of Three Cheese Tortellini,(like Buitoni )cooked to package directions
1 can Medium or Large pitted Black Olives
1 5.75 oz jar Green Olives
2 12 oz containers of marinated mozzarella balls(usually found near the speciality cheeses)
30 slices of Salami, cut in half
60 pieces of pepperoni
1 cup Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing ( my favorite is the Paul Newmans)
Skewers (as many as you'll like to make)

Place the cooked tortellini in a bowl or large gallon freeze bag. Pour the salad dressing over the top and marinade in the fridge for a few hours. Drain the pasta. Place one of each item onto the skewer using the pointy side.

Looks good in the pictures, we shall see if it tastes the same.

So, for me it's going to be a busy weekend. Tomorrow Sat. morning I will get those kebabs ready, then I'm off to pick up Yanique at 2pm to take her to the movies at 3 and we are going to watch "Happy Feet 2", I hope it's a nice movie.

Then at 7pm is off to the Christmas Party!

On Sunday I just plan to go to Church in the morning and then perhaps go visit my SIL in their new place.

And last but not least, I am hoping to get rid of my soreness from the Wed. class... so in between all I have plan, I need a much deserved rest.

'Till we meet again, have yourself a wonderful weekend!

I hope you and Yanique had another great day together - and hope the party was fun. Sounds like you know how to enjoy life - it's a great feeling!! Nothing like good food in the company of great friends! Just did a little catching up - the Kettle Express sounded like so much fun and a whole lot of calorie-burning!! :)
