Feta Bruschetta

This weekend is about chillin' after the first busy week back to reality. It's also about a special birthday girl turning 12 who just wants to hang with her buds for the day and have a sleepover. It's about keeping that girl's youngest brother busy with a friend (baking in the kitchen) so that all is well with the world. What can I say? Life is gooood. I think the hubby and I will relax tonight and enjoy some Beaujolais with a few healthy appetizers.

Here is one I always order at restaurants but it's pretty easy to recreate at home. The feta really makes it! Happy Weekend Everyone! Enjoy your busy family time or wherever else this 1st weekend in January finds you.
