Today is one of my most favorite people's birthday and as I looked through some photos this morning of our 15 years of friendship I was struck by how many fun times we have had together. We met at church as we were both newlyweds and were trying to get our feet under us as new wives and really as grown ups. We cooked together, laughed and cried together, watched our favorite shows together, welcomed each other's babies, and though we now live 3 hours apart she is still one of my best friends.
For food Friday I am sharing a recipe that is from a bible study that we did together and have giggled about since. It is a perfect addition to any cheese tray and though it is super simple the name alone makes you feel like you have really done something.
1 cup black olives
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp capers
1 Tbs good olive oil
1/4 tsp cracked pepper
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and combine to your preferred consistency.
