I just hosted a home party sponsored by Stoneyfield Farms Yogurt and Seventh Generation products. It was great fun because they sent samples and coupons to giveaway. All the ladies who came have little one(s) or were expecting. Comparing belly bumps was a highlight of the night. I seriously think I was the largest - and I'm not due the soonest!! Yikes! I guess my body really does pregnant well, it's the "after" photo I'm worried about.
I didn't worry about last night's food for the party. I served all kinds of snacks that my kids love. I wanted to pass on some (hopefully) new recipes. The menu included: baked oatmeal squares, crispy garlic green beans, homemade hummus, peach power shakes, mint tea, creamy tomato dip (recipe below), sweet fig appetizers, samples of Stoneyfield Farms banana drinkable yogurt and whole milk peach yogurt. For dessert we had Orange Blossom cupcakes and watermelon granita. I'd have to say the figs and the tomato dip were the hits of the evening. I promised to share the recipes so here is the one for the tomato dip.
2 med tomatoes, diced
3 oz cream cheese, I use light
3 tbsp ketchup
3 tbsp mayo, again with the light here
couple of dashes of worcestershire sauce
Mix all together in a bowl until creamy and well incorporated. Store in the fridge to firm up (at least an hour). Serve with crackers or toast. Please note, this is very similar to my Salmon Dip.
I will post the other recipes on here as well, but in the meantime I wanted to give a secret code out for all who attended (and anyone who reads this post). This is just for the Mommies... UdderCovers.com has a special deal on right now. They make those cute cover-ups for nursing moms. If you go on their website and enter the code "breastfeeding" you can get a FREE cover! You'll still have to pay for shipping, but the cover is free! Get one for you or as a baby gift for someone you know.
Thanks to all the ladies who came and contributed their great "green" ideas to the party. I learned so much and had a wonderful time.
