Yummy Snack

Sarah made these for my bridal shower, and I loved them! I never had them before, or even heard of them for that matter, but now I crave them. Go figure. I crave everything. Basically if it's food, and I can eat it, I crave it. I eat constantly. I mean it. Anyway, they are called Snake Eyes, but Sarah was calling them Green Eyes, so I'm going to call them that, it's easier to remember :). All you need is:

1) Cream Chesse
2) Sliced Ham
3) Pickle Spears

Thats it.

It's easier if you get the whipped cream cheese, it spreads MUCH easier. I bought a brick of the Great Value fat free, and that stuff is not meant to spread. Honest. You have to get thicker slices of ham, not the deli shaved kind. Anyway, spread the cream cheese onto the ham and then roll the pickle up inside of it. Thats it. It's so easy. I stacked them on a plate and put them in the freezer for about an hour. Sarah told me that trick, it makes them easier to cut. So I cut them, and ate them all. Just kidding, there are a few left. Honestly though, they are pretty healthy...

All rolled up.

Cut with my handy dandy Kitchen Aid Santoku Knife

Ready to eat. Soooo easy.

Also, I have a new favorite wine. I went out to lunch with some of my old work friends the other day, and in their gift they gave me (everyone keeps throwing gifts at me, it's hard to get used to) they put a bottle of Oliver Soft Red Wine, and I LOVE it. It is so good. It's from the Oliver Winery in Bloomington, Indiana (if you're not from Indiana, it's where IU is, about three hours from here). I'm not sure if they sell it in stores out of state like they do here, but if they do, you should try it. I really really like it. :) This isn't my picture, I had to find it online. I got to try out all of my new wine gadgets last night though, and they are awesome. I was pretty tired last night, so it didn't even cross my mind to take pictures of the stuff. I'm sure I'll have another opportunity. I got all kinds of Metrokane "Houdini" products from my last shower. If you are a wine drinker, and don't know about this stuff, check out that website, they have the coolest stuff. I mean it. If you want to buy any of it though, go to Kohls, they have most of it, and it's always on sale.
