patriotic berry appetizer
Happy 4th of July!
Hope you have been having a wonderful time celebrating Independence Day.

My Sister-in-Law and Brother-in-Law created quite a celebratory feast for us this afternoon.  My favorite grilled item is kielbasa, so that is all that I really cared about!  (But it most definitely was not all that I ate!) The rest of the family was fortunate that there was more than enough to go around, because I didn't have to fight anyone for their portion.   Dessert was grilled pineapple with vanilla ice cream.  It was fantastic.

I was asked to bring an appetizer.  If there is a holiday being celebrated, it can be assumed I am going to try my very best to make whatever I bring look festive. 

As I was brainstorming, Hubby said, "just put what you make in a festive bowl. 
"But I want the FOOD to be festive."
"You can put sparklers on top!"
"Oooooh, that sounds fun... but no."

The sparklers really would have been fun.  I'm just a party pooper. 
I finally decided to create Patriotic Berry Appetizers.   (If you can come up with a better name, let me know!)

They were simple, pretty, yummy, and FESTIVE. 
Just what I wanted.

To create your own, fill premade phyllo cups (found in the freezer section of the grocery store) with a cube of brie cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 5-8 minutes.  While baking, warm up 1/4 cup of honey and a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar in a pan.  Remove from heat and gently fold in berries.  When the cups are finished baking, top each one with some berries.  Serve.  Eat.  Enjoy.

These are so cute, and look so tasty! Plus I love anything with brie cheese. These would be a great appetizer for any summer party!

Playing poker online can be a scary experience for some people. There are a lot of scams that are being conducted everyday on the internet and you do not want to be involved in one.
