Knit Together

This last Saturday I had a "Knit Together" at my house. I invited several people to come over for some good food, time to work on knitting or crochet projects (very good for me as I have had NO time to work on knitting lately), and a chance for some mothers to have some time away from the kids for a couple of hours.
We had fun! We were small in numbers so it was a great time to get to know a couple of people better as we gabbed on and on about our weddings, knitting and crochet techniques, and of course our kids. And the food was good! Seven layer dip and chips, fresh fruit, southwest pinwheels and Mexican chocolate brownies for dessert.
We will definitely have to so this again!

Southwest Pinwheels (makes 4 wraps that you then cut into 1" pinwheels)

1/2 packet Hidden Valley Fiesta Ranch powdered dressing
8 oz. cream cheese
4 large flour tortillas
baby spinach leaves
16 slices smoked deli turkey
shredded Mexi-blend cheese

Mix 1/2 packet Fiesta ranch with cream cheese, blend well. Lay tortilla flat and spread cream cheese mixture thinly onto tortilla. Add spinach leaves, covering most of the cream cheese with leaves. Add 4 slices of deli turkey in single layers, covering all of the tortilla. Sprinkle on shredded cheese. Then, tightly roll the tortilla, tucking in any escaping ingredients. Pack the wrap tightly in a piece of plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
When ready to serve, remove wrap from the refrigerator and with a serrated knife cut into 1" pieces and secure with fancy toothpicks.

I love getting together with women to chat, create and eat. Good for you to plan and host that. And Southwest Pinwheels are delicious. I should make some... said...
