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.

1. The nicest thing about the future is . . .
that it always starts tomorrow.

2. Money will buy a fine dog .. . .
but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

3. If you don't have a sense of humour. .
you probably don't have any sense at all.

4. Seat belts are not as confining . . .
as wheelchairs.

5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is . . .
when you're in deep water.

6. How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of
the dark . .
to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?

7. Business conventions are important . . .
because they demonstrate how many people a company can
operate without.

8. Why is it that at class reunions . . .
you feel younger than everyone else looks?

9. Scratch a cat (or dog) . . ..
and you will have a permanent job.

10. No one has more driving ambition than the teenage boy
(or girl) . . ..
who wants to buy a car.

11. There are no new sins . . ..
the old ones just get more publicity.

12. There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong
number at 4 a.m. . ..
like, it could be the right number.

13. No one ever says "It's only a game" . . .
when their team is winning.

14. I've reached the age where . . .
'happy hour' is a nap.

15. Be careful about reading the fine print . . .
there's no way you're going to like it.

16. The trouble with bucket seats is that . . .
not everybody has the same size bucket.

17. Do you realize that, in about 40 years . . .
we'll have thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos?
(And rap music will be the Golden Oldies!)

18. Money can't buy happiness .. . .
but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Cadillac than
in a Yugo.

19. After 60, if you don't wake up aching in every joint . . .
you're probably dead.

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.

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


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
