The Tenth Day of Kitschmas

Hors d'oerves
 Schmerke contributed by Mrs. Shawn Steadman, Florence, SC
Oyster Bobs and Kielbasa bites contributed by Dr. Husband 
No time to chat, Dr. Husband and I are running ourselves ragged, between our filming Kitschmas songs and our busy holiday social calendar!  We always like to have something simple around the house to either take with us to parties, or to entertain last-minute guests that may drop by.  So today we have a couple of kitschy snacky items from Dr. Husband's family, as well as one reader submission.

Dr. Husband's finger foods are easy as can be:
Polska Kielbasa
1 package Polska Kielbasa (beef or turkey)
Slice kielbasa into rounds, about 1 inch thick. Brown in skillet. Serve with toothpicks.

Oyster Bobs
1 can fancy smoked oysters
1/4 pound swiss cheese, cubed
1 can pineapple chunks (optional)
On toothpicks, spear 1 oyster and one cube cheese. Add 1 chunk pineapple if desired.

And, the reader submission, Schmerke:
2 blocks of cream cheese, softened
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
Finely chopped pimento-stuffed green olives, to taste (about half a jar)
Grated or finely chopped onion to taste (a tablespoon?)
1 Tbsp mayonaise
milk or olive brine to help make it spreadable
Combine all ingredients, serve with crackers. (Usually Ritz)


You'll have to decide for yourself if the ingredients appeal to you, but here's what we thought. Plus a guest performer!
