Pickles in a blanket. Mini dill pickles wrapped with cream cheese and salami.

Or should I call them “Pickles in a Pig Blanket”?  Ha!  Anyhoo, this post marks the end of a very long hiatus from blogging. I have had a very busy couple months. Things are winding down a little. It’s so wonderful to have a week off from the hustle and bustle of school activities. I am going to try to post a few recipes this week. It would have been great if I could have posted these earlier, some of the recipes are great holiday treats and dishes that would help fill your Thanksgiving table nicely. This recipe is something I saw featured on a local news program. The morning show was hosting an appetizer recipe contest, and of all the wonderful recipes submitted, these were the winner. They deserved their award for many reasons: tasty, easy, creative, cute, kid-friendly. This is a perfect last minute hors d’oeuvre as well. I’m sure there are many of you out there who have been invited to a Thanksgiving feast and do not want to arrive empty handed. Simply pick up three ingredients at the supermarket, and you will arrive at the party with a snack that everyone will love. Be sure to make a lot!

Select mini dill pickles that are relatively small,
or more importantly, thin.↓
