Holiday Appetizer Ideas

Are you entertaining at your home for New Years?  My family is not entertaining in our home this year but we are going to 2 friend's houses this year.  As I am looking through recipes, I stumbled across one of my favorites that for some reason I constantly forget about.  We have always called it "Pigs in a Blanket"  but Pillsbury calls it Mini Crescent Dogs.

I love appetizers that are easy to make.  This recipe only has a few ingredients:  Pillsbury crescent rolls, mini hot dogs, and cheese.  Pop them in the oven and tada!  Only take a few minutes and they are a delicious snack to enjoy with your friends.

Here are a few other Pillsbury recipes that are easy to make and would be a great appetizer idea for your New Years party:

Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls

There is nothing better at the holidays than YOUR comfort food.  For me, the cinnamon rolls from Pillsbury are one of my favorite comfort foods.  When you think about going to the family's house and eating a big meal for Thanksgiving or Christmas, cereal just doesn't cut it for least for me.  I want something sweet and doughy. 
My absolute favorite is the sweet orange flavored cinnamon rolls but the original are a good second for me.  My kids prefer the original flavor.  They love them with a glass of chocolate milk on the side.  My 6 year old always asks for 3 cinnamon rolls because he loves them so much!  I like to eat them with a homemade cafe mocha.  You know, a packet of hot chocolate mixed with brewed coffee instead of water...yummy!

What is your breakfast comfort food?  Do you share my love for cinnamon rolls and cafe mocha or is yours something different?

Check out these recipes to spark your creative cinnamon roll edge:

Disney on Ice Rockin' Ever After Review

 My family, some friends and I had the a very fun night at Disney on Ice Thursday evening.  The performance was as entertaining as ever!  The featured performers included Brave, Tangled, The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.  All of which are my Disney favorites.

In addition to the ice skating, Ariel did aerial moves on a rope.  Very cool performance that I have never seen incorporated into a Disney on Ice performance.  It happened when Ariel gave up her voice for legs.  It demonstrated great ability by the performer.

The performance done by the Tangled pair was also incredible.  They are fabulous ice skaters and there was a very neat scene when they raised the lanterns.  They raised several and lots more just "appeared" out of no where.

The performances of Brave where by far my boys' favorites.  They love the bow and arrow and it was so neat when the performer shot the arrows and there were pyrotechnics when the arrow hit it's target.

It was an overall fabulous performance by all the ice dancers.  I am so happy we were able to attend and enjoy the fabulous show.  If you have been thinking about getting tickets but haven't yet, be sure to get tickets and don't miss out on the performance.  Your kids will truly enjoy it!

Monster Energy Supercross

 I am so super excited to go to Monster Energy Supercross!  It will be on March 2nd at the Edward Jones Dome here in St. Louis.  What could be more fun for the whole family but watching some bikes kick up some dirt?!

Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, is the world's premier indoor motocross circuit, comprised of 17 races of heart-stopping action in some of the largest venues in North America. Every week, the best riders from across the globe, like two-time champion James Stewart, three-time champion Chad Reed, and two-time defending champion Ryan Dungey, seek to outrace each other on the sport's most challenging courses. Featuring tight corners, fast straightaways, challenging rhythm sections, and vertigo-inducing jumps, these tracks pack excitement into every inch of dirt.
 For us we are going to make it an adult event and get a sitter for the kids!  I have never been to an event like this so I am super stoked to check it out.  I have been to tractor pulls and rodeos but never a Supercross.
Be sure to purchase your tickets now.  Hope to see some of you at the show!
