My 40th Birthday Party Ideas
Ideas/inspirations for my fab 40 this year!
Cucumber cups, filled with spinach dip, is a great appetizer for your gluten free friends, so easy- think of all the other possibilities for a filling!! I like to drain the cups for a little while over a paper towel- it removes some of the extra moisture. I like to put finely chopped chives on top, it adds a bit of spice and makes it look pretty.
Appetizer: Spinach Dip Served in Cucumber Cups - Eating Out Loud!
So I made these for 4th july in red white and blue in plastic cups. it worked so good. had to start a couple days before the party. my only tip is to make sure the next layer of jelly is totally cool otherwise it can melt the next layer and rein the whole thing. It only happened to one I thought it was cold enough but it wasn't.
