Spa Night Appies

A Girls Night!
It had been a long time since all the girls had gotten together and had a good gab.  I think we were all suffering from withdrawals.  Seriously.  It was so lovely to get together with the girls!
I set up Spa Night stations:
Foot baths and paraffin wax
Hand lotion and nail art
and Appetizers.
For me a Girls Night isn’t about staying on our diets but pampering ourselves and indulging.  So here are some of the things that I had laid out for the girls:

Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Dippers
To create the little Cinnamon Dipper bowls I first cut out a bunch of circles from flour tortillas.
Then I placed the tortilla circles on the bottom of a mini muffin pan, creating a bowl shape.  I spritzed them with water, sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar and baked for about 5 mins at 350 degrees F.

Now they are all crispy and delicious.

I combined fresh and frozen fruit, diced, into a fruit salsa.  I added about 1 Tbsp of lemon juice and allowed the flavours to marinade overnight.  I had; pear, nectarines, raspberries, kiwi and blueberries.

Yum ~ and just about the only ‘healthy’ appetizer on the menu 😉
Baked Spinach Dip Mini Bread Bowls

This is a recipe that I had pinned awhile ago.  Follow me on Pinterest and find the complete recipe on my Recipe Board.  Or go directly to the  Picky Palate.
The girls nearly died when they tried these – so good!
And I got many requests to bring these bread bowls to our next girls night.

I started by cutting rounds out of Pilsbury Pizza dough and placing them into muffin cups.
Then I mixed my ingredients {these differ from the original recipe ~ so if you liked the ones from Spa Night girls, use these ingredients}:  150g frozen spinach {defrosted}, 1 tsp minced garlic, 3oz cream cheese {softened}, 1/2 c sour cream, 2 Tbsp dried Parmesan cheese, 1/8 tsp chili pepper, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper.

Using a cookie scoop, I placed the mixture in the muffin cups and topped with 1/3C shredded mozzarella cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes.  This recipe yielded 12 bowls for me.

Um.  May I have some more?
No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake
This is another recipe from Pinterest.  You can find it on Babble as well.
I combined the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in the mixer.

Then folded in cool whip.
And crushed oreos.
Each guest had there very own cute little jar of cheesecake.  I though that they could take it home and savour it later.  Oh no.  They all ate it during Spa Night ~ no one wanted to share it with the husbands 😉
Easy Bacon Cheese Rolls

I just threw this one together.  Pilsbury Cresent Rolls, shredded cheddar cheese and cooked bacon bits.

I started by unrolling my dough onto a cookie sheet.

Then I topped each roll with cheese and bacon and rolled them back up.  I baked them according to the package directions ~ 10 minutes at 350 degrees F I think.

These were a hit too.  And I sent the leftovers in school lunches ~ YAY!

And finally our signature drink ~
Berry Daiquiri.
Thanks for hanging out. 
I wish we could all have a virtual Girls Night!

    These all look so yummy! I am hosting book club on Mon. and at least one of these will be on the menu for sure. Thanks for all of the great ideas!
