i'm alive!!

ladies, we are in the home stretch. this is the last week of TOTAL insanity for awhile. the next two or three weeks are still going to be crazy, but not anything like what the past month has thrown at me. i have soooo much to catch y'all up on and i have lots of y'all's posts to keep me busy reading for a while.

but first, i am going to rely on your genius again. our jl provisional class is hosting a clothing swap later this month. everyone in my group has to bring a "light food item" for noshing. i have some recipes that would work, but i'd love to try something new. also, this needs to be portable. i live about an hour and a half from the hostess's home, so it needs to travel well.

so this is where your domestic goddessness comes in: please post in the comments or e-mail me {scg2b at virginia dot edu} with the PERFECT light and portable nom nom for this event.

thanks in advance! y'all are dolls and can't wait to catch up on life!

My mom makes this little yummy things.. They don't have a name, and super easy to make. =)

a pack of tortilla's

a pack of cream cheese (room temp)

a small jar of salsa (you dont have to use the whole jar)

Mix together the cream cheese and salsa, spread on to the torilla's. Roll them up and cut them into bite size pieces.

So delish, and easy.

Pound (or so) of fresh asparagus.
Pound (or so) sliced (deli-style) roast beef
Container of alouette spreadable cheese.

Blanch the asparagus and then place it into a dish of iced water. Spread a thin layer of the cheese onto each slice of roast beef and then wrap around asparagus.

Enjoy, and try not to eat them all on the way :)

The Roanoke Junior League Cheese Slaw is delish! I have the recipe or you can find it online by googling "Lib Wilhelm's Cheese Slaw". Serve it with the little butterfly Pepperidge Farm crackers! Fabulous. Questions? Just email me or comment me on my blog! xoxo

My fave take somewhere nibbly is curried tuna on cucumber slices.

Just mix a couple of cans of flaked tuna with curry paste and a little bit on olive oil and spoon it onto slices of cucumber.

Very low cal and very yummy!
