Welcome back and I hope everyone had a nice holiday. Are
you still stuffed? Well I was turning the page on my calendar
this weekend and with only 3 weekends left till Christmas
there are already lots of parties lined up. Oh yeah this
is a big party season and people have been asking me for
ideas for those social gatherings. Well here's a neat idea
for this time of a year that's tasty and visually appealing
too with the green and red colors. I like to also mix it
up with green and red tortillas, the spinach and tomato
flavor but any will do. In fact, we're having an office
holiday potluck lunch next week and I may just bring
a platter of these little spirals in for my friends here.

Be sure to check out a recipe for homemade potpourri for
gift-giving or spicing up your home in the corner below.
I'm a firm believer that it's the thought that counts and
I know sure appreciate the homemade gifts.

Enjoy!
