I’m back from the most beautiful beach days that summer could give to us down at the Jersey Shore in Wildwood with some girlfriends!
Since we were all arriving at different times Friday night, we decided to keep it simple with appetizers and drinks. We started with Jodi’s mom’s mozzarella, tomato and basil plate where I found a new balsamic vinegar that I really like (Bellino aceto). We also had homemade Margherita pizza made with Boboli, sliced tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and oregano), my crab dip, Jodi’s parmesan artichoke dip, Marissa’s guacamole, Erica’s buffalo chicken dip, shrimp cocktail, and a fruit and veggie plate! We snacked on these goodies all weekend long...
My friend Jodi, who hosted us, introduced us all to the delicious Belmont Skinnygirl Cocktail from
Bethenny Frankel’s website and highly recommended! The ingredients are as follows:
- 4 tablespoons vodka
- 3 tablespoons club soda
- 1 tablespoon Peach Schnapps
- 1 tablespoon orange juice
So, my shopping list for this week is to stock my pantry/fridge/freezer with some new balsamic vinegar, Boboli pizza crust, buffalo mozzarella, and Peach Schnapps. This way if I have visitors at the house I can whip up a quick homemade pizza and yummy drink!
