No Beads, But How About Food?

Well, I haven't been able to bead lately, but we had a progressive dinner last night and my assignment was two of the appetizers. One was Lemon Chicken kabobs, which were fairly simple to make, but the other was Greek Croustade. If you've never worked with phyllo dough, let me just say, it is an instrument of the devil! I have never been so frustrated. I was supposed to fold each sheet into thirds and create a series of spokes, then put the spinach and cheese filling in the center, pull the ends of the spokes up and twist them into rosettes. As you can see, that particular approach didn't work. It turned out fine without the "glamour", but it always ticks me off when I can't make it look like it's supposed to! Everyone enjoyed it though, so I suppose, in the end, it was still a success.
