|Cousins Hiking in Alpe di Suisi|
We made a bit of an unorthodox choice to forgo our annual summer visit to the States and have had the pleasure of sharing a bit of our world with some VIP's instead. I do believe that this is the best decision we've made in a very long time. We are hoping for a repeat in summers to come.

When I first saw the theme, lots of yummy dishes that I've shared with friends over the years came to mind; but between then and now, my idea shifted. When we have potlucks with Italians present, I generally try to make things that I think are pretty American, things you might not find in a restaurant or recipe book, but things all Americans know.
Does it get more American than "Pigs in a Blanket"? I made these as snacks for a child's birthday party last weekend.
I think people liked them, except for my daughter, that is. She took one bite and offered the rest to the hungry cat. Moments like those remind me of the contrast of our upbringings. She doesn't eat ketchup OR mayo either! Not many Americans fit that description.
So, tell me, Pigs in a Blanket...have you ever heard of it in your corner of the world or is it a uniquely American delicacy?
