Truth be told? I only planned on using half of them for this, and then adding the other half to a crock pot with a homemade Alfredo sauce and using them as an appetizer the next day. But, then we tasted them. And then they were gone.

We entertained our friends, Todd and Traci, one evening in July. They came for dinner and dessert, and we had a great time. I made spaghetti and meatballs, bread and salad for dinner. We noshed on Fresh Bruschetta and Charcuterie before dinner, and wrapped things up with Banana Cream Pie.
We had planned to go out for Italian food, and I decided, why not? I had a few recipes I had been wanting to share with you all, so it was a winning situation!
