Countdown to Christmas 72 days and counting

Entertaining can become expensive, but if you plan for it, your cost can be lower than in past years.First decide on the menu sticking to finger foods they tend to be less expensive and you can use many of the same ingredients for most items.  Examples: crescent rolls can be made into several items the ever popular  mini pigs in a blanket, pin wheels, or  puffy buffalo chicken rolls many recipes , add peppers, cream cheese and other vegetables to these and you have a great start.  For more Mini Apps recipes click go to www.Pillsbury.com

Stick to non alcoholic drinks.  My family’s favorite is Sparkling Holiday Punch

 3 cups orange juice, chilledClick to see savings

 2 cups pineapple juice, chilled

 3 cups pomegranate juice, chilled

1 liter ginger ale,
