Monday and Tuesday of this week have been picture perfect: blue skies, big puffy clouds, and warm temperatures without a lot of humidity. I have a “to do” list a mile long, but do you know what I’ve done for the past two days? I’ve been doing exactly what I want to do which means I’ve played tennis, ran a little, biked a little, and sat by the pool a lot. I’m on vacation after all!
My tennis team had practice on Monday night and the best part of practice is the socializing afterwards. Everyone brings a snack and beverages to share. This week I brought Margaritas and celery stuffed with cream cheese and olive. I grew up eating cream cheese and olive sandwiches and I don’t think a holiday ever passed without the table containing a tray of celery stuffed with cream cheese and olive. I worried that the ladies might not like it, but they gobbled up nearly every piece!
Cream Cheese (I used the 1/3 fat kind.)
Olives (I used salad olives stuffed with pimentoes.)
Soften the cream cheese and beat it until creamy. Meanwhile, chop the olives. Mix together.
Easy!! This spread makes a great sandwich and it’s also good on crackers.
