Garden Vegetable Spread ~ Fresh, yummy vegetable spread full of green peppers, celery, carrots, radishes and onion! Pair it with homemade beer bread and you are ready for a party!

Garden Vegetable Spread ~ Fresh, yummy vegetable spread! via www.julieseatsandtreats.comOne night after work a bunch of us girls got together and headed over to a coworkers cabin. It was so much fun. It was nice to get out of the office, eat some yummy food and just relax on the lake.

One of my coworkers was at a conference and she was telling someone about this event. They looked at her like she was growing horns…you mean all the women in your office get along enough to hang out AFTER work? They then went on to tell her that they need to send some of their employees home because they fight? What on earth? Seriously people. Grow up! I was in shock when I heard this. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I agree with everything that happens at work, but I like to think I’m a professional and well you just let things slide right?

My question to you is….what’s your work atmosphere like? I always roll with the motto that life is what you make out of it. Sure, sometimes I lose focus on this and things get to me but at the end of the day do these things really matter? I still have my family, friends and love for God. Really that’s what it’s about.

Ok I’ll get off my soap box!

On this said night out on the lake we each brought a appetizer to share. I picked this Garden Vegetable Spread. I saw this recipe in a cookbook from my hometown and I knew I wanted to try it but I knew it was going to have to be an event because well the hubs just wouldn’t eat it and I couldn’t eat the whole thing. Actually I could. It was sinfully delicious. I paired it with this Homemade Beer Bread and it was devoured quickly! If you are looking for alternative to the typical “Game Day” food for this upcoming football season this is calling your name!

Kyocera Ceramic Pairing Knife Giveaway ~ julieseatsandtreats.com

You know what else is pretty sweet about this post? I’m doing a little giveaway to help you chop all those yummy veggies up in this Garden Vegetable Spread! I’m giving away a Kyocera Ceramic Pairing Knife. Every since I got one it’s my “Go To” Knife for whatever I need to cut. In fact I think I might have to go out and buy another one because I use it so much that it’s always dirty when I need it. If you need a new pairing knife I highly recommend this one!

    Hey Julie. The recipe sounds great and paired with the beer bread I’m sure it’s amazing. Thanks for the post and thank you for the chance to win the knife. <3 Kim

    I could always use new knives! I can’t stand my coworkers…..hahaha, it’s just me! But yeah, I”m always surprised at how childish adults can be! Lovin’ the vegetable spread. Could probably eat it for lunch!

    It is unfortunate that so many women have this issue and choose not to support one another. I am so fortunate that I work in an office of 3 women, including myself, and we get along wonderfully! They are what I love about my job the most. As far as this recipe goes, it looks amazingly flavorful!
