Hello, hello! I’m in such a great mood today for a million reasons. The biggest one is that I have an adventure coming up! I’m headed to Oregon this weekend to meet up with one of my best girlfriends from Wisconsin, Holly. We’re going to have a quick weekend in Oregon wine country and I’m so excited! I’ve been to Portland a handful of times, but this time we’re getting out of the city and exploring what else Oregon has to offer.
I’ve been waiting to share these pistachio goat cheese stuffed dates appetizers with you for so long it’s almost criminal. The reason that they are part of my million reasons for happiness is that they are so good. They are also incredibly easy to whip up if you need a last minute party appetizer. You can also make them the night before and then sprinkle them with pistachios right before serving. As you can probably tell, they also make a great bite-sized snack. Since they’re made with Greek yogurt they are also on the healthy spectrum a well.
All of these beautiful photographs for this recipe were also taken by Holly during one of the trips she made to San Francisco to visit me! Holly is a professional photographer so obviously, our trip to Oregon is going to be well-documented. I can’t wait to share our adventure in Willamette Valley with you.
Do you have any recommendations for things to do in Oregon? I have a couple of trips planned there in the coming months and I’d love to hear your advice!Print
