The other night our friends came for dinner.

But here’s a different spin on how I was less involved as the hostess!

Our friends brought the main course, and cooked it in our kitchen. How fun is that? I didn’t know what they were bringing, but I just made sure that my kitchen was clean and pans were out and ready.

Was it going to be lasagna?
Steak or pork to grill?
Chicken to go into the oven?

No, it was lamb chops, an amazing mashed cauliflower, and out-of-this-world salad with organic greens and fresh veggies. A truly amazing meal.

And I made the appetizer.

Since my daughter had just had surgery, and I was busy taking care of her, I went to an old standby for an appetizer.

Mozzarella stuffed cheese log wrapped in prosciutto (you can buy these logs at Costco), baked flatbread, and my favorite … a big hunk of fresh basil from our herb garden, off to the side.

By the way, I love to serve basil this way.

How fresh and fun to tear off your own “leaf” and add on top of each bite!?

So, what made this cheese appetizer so tasty?

A delightful drizzle of sweet honey.

It completes any appetizer with cheese, almost every time.

Have you ever had friends bring dinner and cook in your kitchen for you?
