Birthdays and skewers

It seems that there are not enough hours in the day!Especially with Christmas coming, it seems like the days just fly by!I still can't believe Christmas is in 19 days!!!
Every morning from the time I wake up until my overloaded  head hits the pillow at night, my brain swirls a mile a minute with all the things I would love to do, all the things I want to do , and all the things I need to do. Blogging is always at the top of my list,and even though i have 1 million and 1 ideas to write about , it always finds it's way down to the bottom by the end of the day.
So today, even though it`s little V`s  3rd birthday, and the cake crumbs are still on the floor,I`m taking the time to share with you a little easy recipe that I made tonight for a special event.
It really isn't complicated, it's just delicious and fresh!!!

Caprese skewers(makes 50)
250g of mozzarella cheese
25 cherry tomatoes
2 cucumbers
6 leaves of fresh basil
vinaigrette. I usually make a fast balsamic vinaigrette, but a store bought one works just as well !

                                                                                               The final product

And all you have to do is cut the cheese in 50 equal squares, cut the cucumbers in 4 lengthwise and then cut each one to make a total of 100 pieces, cut the tomatoes in halves,and chop the basil.It really only takes about 15 to 20 minutes.Put everything in a covered container,shake, and let it marinate in the fridge another 15 to 20 minutes. I put a cucumber, a tomato half, another cucumber, and a piece of cheese on the bottom so it will stand. I also recommend using wood toothpicks, because everything will slide off the plastic ones.(I learnt that the hard way the first time i made these!can you say disaster!?!)

I really hope you enjoy this recipe!!

Now I'll go clean those cake crumbs, wash chocolate off a few faces and then off to bed to dream of what i will attempt to blog about tomorrow!!
Good night!
