Holiday Crafting Party & Appetizer

I hosted a small gathering at my house for a Holiday Crafty Party through Meetup.com 1 person showed up haha.

But we had a great time and got a lot of things done. I also made Sausage Won Ton Stars (see recipe below).

Kelly, solitary crafting friend, was working on a felt and embroidery stocking for her boyfriend, Andy.


Isn't that crazy?! She made everything from scratch using only a pattern from a kit. All the embellishments are done by hand. The bead work. The felt characters. Everything. WHAT PATIENCE! I could never make anything like that.

I was working on things a bit easier than that. Mostly sewing in straight lines. I can't say what they are because they're Christmas gifts but I can say my brother, sister, and best friend are gonna be very excited!!

Overall it was a very lovely afternoon. I enjoyed meeting and spending time with Kelly. I'm looking forward to more Meetups with lots more crafty buddies.

Okay now for the recipe:

Sausage Stars
Recipes found at Everyday Home Cook

Ingredients:
1 lb pork sausage (can be Italian), browned & drained
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
3/4 cup Ranch salad dressing
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1 2.5 oz can chopped black olives
Wonton wrappers

Directions:
1. Combine all except wonton wrappers.  Place wonton wrappers into mini-muffin pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes, until lightly browned.

2. Stuff wontons with filling.  Bake another 5 to 10 minutes, until light golden brown.

3. Makes about 3 to 4 dozen

NOTES: I made some changes to the recipe. I used some fake meat cause that's what I had on hand. I also made some with olives and some without. I didn't know what my guests preference would be. Lastly I used a picquillo pepper bruschetta in place of the regular red peppers because again, that's what was on hand. It was amazing, I looked at my fairly bare fridge, pulled out everything edible. It just so happen I had everything on that list on hand. Very lucky coincidence. Very yummy one as well!
