As daughter Sarah and I planned for appetizers for their wedding reception, we found this Grape and Goat Cheese Bite appetizer. What’s not to like…goat cheese, pecans and grapes. Simple. Luscious. And, again, a Pinterest find.
GRAPE AND GOAT CHEESE BITES
Finely chop pecans in a food processor.
The hardest part of this recipe is rolling the goat cheese into balls. Only take a small amount of goat cheese from the frig at a time since it is easier to roll when cold.
Roll room temperature goat cheese balls in chopped pecans (so nuts will easily stick to goat cheese).
Put goat cheese ball on a toothpick and top with a fresh, washed green grape. Voila!
Tomorrow my baby, Sarah, will be married. Where did the 23.6666 years go? Wasn’t it yesterday she was saying ‘me do it’ and putting herself in time-out? So fun to see our children grow up and become adults, but not so fun to look in the mirror and not recognize that person.
The preparations are almost done as we are gearing up for the ceremony at a local rose garden, followed by the reception in my backyard.
The ceremony and reception will be Colorado Casual with live music, BBQ and backyard fun. While the main course will be catered, we have been busy making the appetizers and cupcakes, clearing out the furniture on the first floor of my house to make room for tables and chairs.
We are PRAYING for no moisture, no high winds, and comfortable temperatures. In Colorado, you never know what you’ll get. We had a blizzard for older daughter Megan’s wedding to Christian last October, moving from the gorgeous outdoor venue to the ballroom. Oh well, made for beautiful photos and many stories.
Hopefully, no snow (or rain, or hail, or tornadoes, of hurricanes, or wind bursts, or earthquakes) on July 28 in Centennial and Littleton, Colorado….but I ramble….
I’m sending positive thoughts and prayers for a beautiful wedding and reception for Sarah and Kyle on their special day… and many years of love, joy and laughter!
