Appetizers are what’s for dinner

I have written before about the weekend cooking activities. You can read about them here.

Soon I won’t have to cook in two different kitchens or tote food all over Greenville county because I am getting married. Have I mention this?:)

But until then I will continue the tradition of cooking a yummy comfort food Saturday evening meal(not necessarily healthy) for my fiance’ and his boys.

I wanted to switch things up a little bit this weekend.

Appetizers for dinner.

I love typical “chain restaurant” appetizers, but I don’t make them often because I figure it’s just more calories that I don’t need.

But if I make them as dinner, well, then that solves that problem.

I have not decided for sure but these are the recipes that are in the running for Saturday evening.

Buffalo Chicken Rolls, canyoustayfordinner.com

I have made these rolls before. Delish and so easy!

Can I just take a moment to tell you how much I love working with spring roll wrappers? They are so versatile. And I love that the recipe for buffalo chicken rolls is baked on a rack. No frying is involved at all. Love it!

Hot artichoke dip, thepioneerwoman.com

I will make some form of artichoke dip (because it’s Joe’s favorite), but I will make it a much lighter version. I love using Greek yogurt in place of mayo and cheese.

Tex Mex Egg Rolls, simplecomfortfood.com

And since I already have the spring roll wrappers for the buffalo chicken rolls I might make a few with tex mex flair.

Potato Skins, thepioneerwoman.com

And these potato skins sure look good too….decisions, decisions.

Fried Mozzarella Sticks, tastykitchen.com

Oh gosh, homemade fried mozzarella sticks…..I am in trouble.

Update: The mozzarella sticks were amazing and so so easy. Make them!
