Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Skewer

This week was a fun and exciting week.  Mr. P and I were both working but were able to get out of work on time, and enjoy some time with friends and each other.

We had a date night and went to the Yardley Inn:

It was a great restaurant..I had Crab soup, and a delicious beet salad with fresh apples, and for my entree filet Mignon with creamed spinach, Potatoes Au Gratin.  Everything was homemade and delicious.

Than we headed onto Shady Brook Farm, for their Christmas Light Show:

It was so NICE!!!  You drive in your car through the farm.
Watch this video:

And no I did not take this video, it was on Shady Brook Farm's web-site as a promotion.
If you are in the Philadelphia area I would stop on by!
I also got to meet my good Friends new baby this week at our annual Christmas Event, I was in charge of bringing an appetizer.

Now this idea came from a fellow Facebook friend:

Basil, tomato, and Fresh Mozzarella.

1 Pint of Grape Tomatoes-rinsed
1 Container of Fresh Mozzarella-drained of the water
1 Bunch of Fresh Basil-rinsed
1 Container of toothpicks
olive oil to taste
salt to taste
pepper to taste

I believe the best way to stack is:  I placed a grape Tomato first, weaved on a basil leaf, and than followed with a mozzarella ball.  As the fresh Mozzarella may still be wet, and you do not want it dripping on the ingredients.

I than lined a container with paper towels, and arranged my toothpicks, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle salt and pepper, and that's it.

These are so good and tasty, I love them!!!


Anyone making something special for New years Eve parties?
