Easy Party Finger Food, Healthy Thai Basil Style
Easy Party Finger Food, Healthy Thai Basil Style, an easy solution to holiday gathering, party and football season.
I am posting this Easy Party Finger Food, Healthy Thai Basil Style recipe during football season partly because it scratches an itch I have when indoors watching TV and football more and for holiday gatherings. I have a friend who spends the fall and winter with finger foods out all the time and who said that he usually gains several pounds in the fall and winter watching football and grazing. It occurred to me that it can be done healthier with Thai spices because they are usually plant based as opposed to foods from other regions which are usually cream or sugar based and have more fat and total calories.
This is also a good way to take care of random stuff that accumulates in your fridge and you need to use before it goes bad. We always have garlic, Thai peppers, some kind of meat etc that needs to be used but we don’t have everything for a full recipe for, be creative and enjoy the holiday party season with food out all the time.
