A few nights ago we spent the evening with a lovely friend. She laid out the most exquisite assortment of snacks and delicious sangria. The weather was fine so we were able to sit outside on her shady back patio and soak in the summer ambiance.

Roasted red pepper spread with pita and an amazing lemony boursin cheese and goat cheese spread with blueberries.

A delicious spicy dip with fresh summer vegetables.

Baked bacon-wrapped dates, a sweet and salty extravaganza!
