Holiday Olive Creations???

What are you whipping up this holiday season that involves olives? I think I'll make a few filthy martinis tonight. They sound like just the thing.

Well, I'll be hornswoggled -

How is it I'm just now finding this group?

I adore olives! When we lived in northern California, we had olive trees on our property. Some of them were said to be a hundred years old...don't know how old they were truly were, but they sure looked gnarled and old, but still producing olives.

when you're in deep water.

6. How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of

20. Always be yourself because the people that matter don't
mind . . ..
and the ones that mind don't matter.

21. Life isn't tied with a bow .. . .
but it's still a gift.

REMEMBER....

BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE
SAME REASON"

Mini meet up

I'm thinking about doing a little meet up at a restaurant in the 'north of Atlanta' area in June. I know there will be a much bigger meet up next spring is Savannah. I was talking with Millie Johnson about it. She lives in northern Alabama. We haven't set a place or a date yet, just wanted to throw it out there and see what everyone thinks. I will be posting this on some other sites. Send me a private message if you are interested. Melanie

Olive Lovers.....I have a recipe that's great for any event...

Italian Tortellini Twisters

These great appetizers can be made up a day or two before the party and would not be complete w/o some festive green or black olives to munch on. I LOVE this recipe cause they are super easy to make and fun to eat!

New recipe for those OLIVE LOVERS out there

Melanie,

I know you will enjoy this one. It was my first thought for the Sherri's sandwich challenge this week to kick up the use of olives for the recipe I wanted to make. See what you think. You most certainly have to LOVE olives to want to eat this pizza. LOL
