The Hostess with the Mostess.

I love to entertain.  I don't think it's really a secret, but I really really do! It's rather fortunate that I do love it so much as my mom has a bad habit of volunteering me to do things.  This week I was  voluntold that I would be catering the Republican Women's Meeting and the Vice Presidential Debate watch party tomorrow.  No big deal.. I only work 40 hours a week and take what feels like a million classes.  Cater a party for 100+, pshh, piece of cake.  Not really, but I made it work.

On the menu for tomorrow we have (and since I'm such a sweetheart I'll include the links to the recipes I used as well! Keep in mind, these are close to most of my recipes, but some I've made up on my own):
Nutella banana bread
Peanut Butter cookie bites
Brownie bites
Skinny spinach dip
fruit tray and veggie trays
Olives (what? idk.. Mom's idea.  Just a jar of Olives )
Chili (seriously? I think we're over doing this Mom..)
My famous sweet tea (I don't give out this recipe, Sorry. I've given it to approximately 3 people in my life and one of those was her wedding present. I don't mess around y'all!)
Chocolate chip cookies

So seeing as I only have one morning off a week I had to be productive! I woke up at 8am and starting baking.  First up was the Nutella banana bread.. That stuff is crazy good. Then the PB bites and brownie bites, spinach dip, the fruit and veggie trays were ordered (to be picked up tomorrow), meatballs will go into the crock pot in the morning, and the chocolate chip cookies will be made when I get off work tomorrow afternoon. So now for your enjoyment, Food porn!
Nutella banana bread (seriously.. I die for this stuff y'all!)

Brownie Bites with Hershey Kisses

Since I was on such a roll, I also decided to make some egg muffins with ham and cheese (basically the SkinnyTaste version, but I didn't have any broccoli).  I make these every week or so because it takes the guess work out of stumbling around my kitchen at 4:30 in the morning before I leave for work. Grab them out of the fridge, pop them into the microwave, and you can eat them with your hands!! My dad likes to put them on English muffins, but I'm really not not an English muffin kinda girl.

Now I'm getting ready to leave work, pick up some take out, shower and get my butt in bed! Working in the morning, Spanish, baking, setting up, biology and then the watch party! So much to do tomorrow! Oh! and whatever will I wear?!
