Happy Hour

Brought to you from the garden and some of my favorite farm visitors.

It all started with making a batch of Ricotta.

And then a sending the visiting kiddos out to the garden to see what they could find to make some snacks with the cheese.

Which they gobbled down so fast, I almost didn't get a picture, and the adults almost didn't get to sample the creation.

My niece and nephews LOVED the cheese, but we were out of ripe tomatoes on the vine. So we started looking for more ideas. We searched the canning pantry and came up with some strawberry jam and tomato puree.
We also added some of the oh so good basil and garlic to olive oil. 

The kids dove in. 

Much to my surprise, they tried each sample and liked it all. 
They had so much fun creating their own appetizers. 
Perhaps that is why they where so eager to try new tastes.
And why I am so eager to have them back.

Hosted by Kate@Daffodils.

That's such a fun way for kids to learn new food combinations (that they might think were weird otherwise)!

Can't wait for the link up, looking so forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!
