Happy Friday! We have a little snack / app for you today. Perfect for lazy weekends with wine, or watching The Handmaids tale in bed. (Are you guys watching The Handmaids tale? Soooooo good.)
Whipped feta is also my favorite because any cheese that you can dip stuff in is worth just having around, so probably make extra of that. These toast points are also gorgeous, so they make a perfect appetizer to serve to guests with not that much effort. Also, it’s cheese and bread and thats everyones favorite so it’s just a good choice.
