Happy Friday! FINALLY, right? I have this thing where the weeks leading up to the holidays are just….LONG, in my brain, and then suddenly YAY! Lots of short weeks in a row! I’m ready for the short weeks to start NOW, please and thank you. For the weekend, let’s make an appetizer, ok? This is REALLY simple, but incredibly delicious. Once you master the basic roasted garlic paste you can add herbs, cheese, or anything you can think of to the crostini! …
Oh well. A weekend off I guess!
Weekends, though, are for party food. Like this!
This little gem was inspired by my sister Emily. Sometimes I make her text with me at night about food, and she says something like “everyone likes pretzels and shrimp,” so I make a crostini with pretzel bread topped with shrimp.
Seriously, the convos go like that. She loves mustard, so I threw some in as an ode to her. Make these! You’ll love them, and they’re EASY.
Remember how a long time ago I used to harp all the time about how you just really really REALLY need to make roasted tomatoes for every single event in your life because they’re delicious and it’s a nice way to give people good food while making them like you?
If you did that, good!
If not, I warned you…it’s the fastest way to admiration.
And, it’s easy and totally not admiration-worthy.
