4th Of July Preps


If you need to take an appetizer to your 4th of July party, you may want to try this one! Miss Jean made these and, of course, I just HAD to take a picture – cause that is how I roll! They are called Mini Pizzas and the recipe is at the bottom of this post. Warning: You will not be able to eat just one!

P1010008e I sure could use a mini pizza right now cause I forgot to eat today. Just been busy making pennant banners for my Etsy shop. They are all patriotic and fun pieces to have to hang on your porch, over a hutch, along a rail, over a window or on a patio.




Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!!

Now try these mini pizzas out – I am sure you will love them!


1 pound grated Cheddar Cheese

1/2 small can of tomato sauce

1 small can of chopped green chilis

1 small can of chopped black olives


2 Baguettes or French Bread

Slice the baguettes into 1 inch slices. Set aside.

Add all ingredients to the bowl. Add enough mayonnaise just to bind the ingredients together. Spread onto the cut bread. Place into a preheated 350 degree oven. Bake until the cheese is nice and melted on the top.

The mini pizzas look really delicious. I just picked up some new mayo that has olive oil in it and I'm sure it would taste really good in this recipe. Your banners are gorgeous! I don't know how you do it all. Have a blessed 4th celebration.

I need to make some pennants for my summer picnics - I have tons of bias tape and fabric - I'm thinking slices of watermelon.

And Miss Jeans appetizer looks delightful!! - Can't wait to try it.

Also, I want to place an order for the bunting but I'm concerned it won't make it here in time for the 4th. I live in Colorado. what do you think?? I have ordered from you before and LOVE your work.

Hi Becky, Earl was looking over my shoulder as I read this post and he just went nuts over these banners. He loves them as much as I do. Your choice of fabrics is, as usual, fantastic:>)I just can't decide which one I like best. That mini pizza appetizer, wicked! I'm trying to lose weight and everywhere I turn is temptation! lol. Of course, that's how I got in this situation, temptation everywhere even when I'm NOT dieting. Maybe I should sew instead of eating too!

Jocelyn said...

Miss Jean said...
