Appetizers are what’s for dinner

I have written before about the weekend cooking activities. You can read about them here.

Soon I won’t have to cook in two different kitchens or tote food all over Greenville county because I am getting married. Have I mention this?:)

But until then I will continue the tradition of cooking a yummy comfort food Saturday evening meal(not necessarily healthy) for my fiance’ and his boys.

I wanted to switch things up a little bit this weekend.

Appetizers for dinner.

I love typical “chain restaurant” appetizers, but I don’t make them often because I figure it’s just more calories that I don’t need.

But if I make them as dinner, well, then that solves that problem.

I have not decided for sure but these are the recipes that are in the running for Saturday evening.

Buffalo Chicken Rolls,

I have made these rolls before. Delish and so easy!

Can I just take a moment to tell you how much I love working with spring roll wrappers? They are so versatile. And I love that the recipe for buffalo chicken rolls is baked on a rack. No frying is involved at all. Love it!

Hot artichoke dip,

I will make some form of artichoke dip (because it’s Joe’s favorite), but I will make it a much lighter version. I love using Greek yogurt in place of mayo and cheese.

Tex Mex Egg Rolls,

And since I already have the spring roll wrappers for the buffalo chicken rolls I might make a few with tex mex flair.

Potato Skins,

And these potato skins sure look good too….decisions, decisions.

Fried Mozzarella Sticks,

Oh gosh, homemade fried mozzarella sticks…..I am in trouble.

Update: The mozzarella sticks were amazing and so so easy. Make them!
