1st Bite ~ I fell in love with Anne Geddes's precious babies when I saw the cover of this sweet calendar.
This next bite is inspired both by sweet beginnings and endings of a different nature; good foods and good friends :-). I've mentioned that this month I am on a search for new and different local culinary ingredients with which I can prepare and entertain using fun and sometimes fascinating food and that this month I have Prickly Pear on my mind. While Prickly Pears are not in season right now, I was lucky enough to find some fun Prickly Pear related things.
2nd Bite ~ Cheri's Prickly Pear Syrup, Goldwater's Prickly Pear Jelly, and Ciao Bella Prickly Pear Sorbet
I'm thinking a Saturday Night Southwest Style Dinner Party to try out these intriguing ingredients. Prickly Pear Margaritas, Wine Spritzers and Lemonade come to mind. I think a nice compliment will be Prickly Pear and Goat Cheese on top of Artisan Bread for appetizers. And because I have sooooo many favorites, I haven't decided on the entree yet, but I'm thinking Prickly Pear Sorbet as a sweet ending. What do you think? Have a wonderful day! ~ Blessings, Janet
