bunco babes

I presented three Chico repeat recipes when hosting bunco at my house this week. (These ladies have been keeping close tabs on my cookbook progress!) The first being fennel breadsticks (from recipe #65), since they are a great accompanyment to the crockpot spaghetti I made for the evening's bunco dinner. Also turned the almond dill cream cheese and tomato relish (from recipes #81 & Chico Weekend) into DIPS! These were such a hit, several people asked for the recipes.
In addition, here's another dish that must be shared; a sweet, easy Fruit Salad I whipped up for bunco dessert (along with blueberry cake & coffee):
Combine the fruit & juice of 1 can of peaches (in water instead of syrup), 1 can of pineapple, & 1 package of vanilla pudding mix. Once the mix is dissolved, add cut-up apples, strawberries, bananas, grapes, and whatever other fresh fruit you can find for a colorful, flavorful treat! Brenda & Jamie suggested adding Malibu to it next time as well. Hmm, they might be on to something...
~Rating of fennel breadsticks: 8 stars (out of 10)
~Rating of almond dill cream cheese: 9.5 stars (out of 10). The bowl was quickly finished off!
~Rating of tomato relish: 8.5 stars (out of 10)
~Rating of lemonade: 8 stars (out of 10) Repeat cookbook suggestion from Recipe #38.
