Snowbird Appetizer....

Our  street block  had a   casual goodbye party for all the Snowbirds heading out to warm climes over the next few weeks..It would be the last time we would all be together for what we call garage happy hours
(  men seem to congregate in the garages while the ladies  are on the porch or patios) until next April......
Some Snowbirds are heading  to Texas  this week, some are heading to Florida in the middle of November, some heading  out the first of December and some the first of January.. scattering to different parts of Florida , Arizona.
In keeping with the casual   , all appetizers  was the menu... tho some desserts appeared to...
I took jalapeno poppers.......about 30, they were gone is seconds...

seeds and pith removed and oh yes I wore gloves for this job
There  are a  ton of recipes  for these   treats  but this one is  so good so fast to make ...... some recipes  have lots of ingredients...this one


ready to bake
3 ingredients only,  how easy is that!
Prep time about 10 minutes....

Peppers cut in half, stuffed with plain cream cheese ,  wrapped in prosciutto....
Baking time  at  400 degrees 20 minutes or so .Until  golden brown.....
Yummy
One could easily gussy up these treats but using a bit of cheddar cheese mixed with the cream cheese or use   an herb garlic cream cheese  but the flavour really doesn't need it. 
These are so good just plain.

Rosemary, you have all the best ideas and recipes. I bet you miss your friends who fly the coop for the warmer weather. I wonder what that would be like? I'm such a homebody, though I bet it's fun to get away from snow for a bit.

Oh,I bet these are hot!

They look really yummy! I would guess that a lot of the heat from the peppers would be offset by the cream cheese.

Hi All thanks for stopping and saying hi.. These poppers because the pith and seeds are gone are not too hot... the cream cheese helps take away the worst of the heat.... still the odd one can bite you.
