I like to make appetizers that are served as bite sizes, easily picked up with your fingers! And I’m finding more and more, people do not want a heavy appetizer served before dinner. Just a few bites to nosh on is enough.

Mini Focaccia Sandwich Bites

So these Mini Focaccia Sandwich Bites are perfect, made with summer fresh ingredients!

focaccia, cucumber, basil, mozzarella and cherry skewer

Think summer ingredients–blackberries, cherries, strawberries, and cucumbers!

I simply cut the focaccia into small cubes.

Pit the cherries (oh, beautiful cherries!). Do you have a cherry pitter? You can buy a OXO Good Grips Cherry and Olive Pitter for only $12.99 [affiliate link]. I love this kitchen tool! Oh, and try this Summer Cherry Compote Recipe or Chocolate Chip Cherry Bars!

Stack the bread, cucumber, basil, mozzarella, and berry; skewer with a toothpick. Repeat until all 16 are made.

Combine the olive oil with the balsamic, and a pinch of salt on top for dipping.

You can make them all uniform, or mix up the ingredients, which is what I love to do.

Let me just say, it’s a mouthful of summer, with cheese and bread, and a balsamic pop!

What is fun?

“Isn’t fun the best best thing to have?” -Arthur

Over the weekend, we had out-of-town company, and I have to agree with the quote from Arthur. We did have fun, and it was the best time. (Ps. did your kids watch Arthur growing up like mine did?)

Fun dinnr party question to ask your guests

At one of the dinners, we had some good old-fashioned, lighthearted fun. The question for the 10 guests was:

What was your first ever concert you attended and what has been your favorite since then?

It’s great with a larger group to engage everyone, and asking a question does just that!
