You guys, summer is almost over and I’m sad. While I’m not a fan of intense heat or sweating I do love the whole outdoor aspect of summer. I love being able to sit outside and just enjoy the weather. I wanna sit at a table, drink some bubbly and nibble on all the delicious snacks. Seriously, I spend so much time with my friends during the summer that I crave that type of interaction when the yard is covered in snow and I can’t go outside without freezing.
Luckily for me, I have about 2 more months of warm weather and I plan on soaking up every. last. minute.
When I was asked to team up with Riondo Prosecco I jumped at the chance to showcase my favorite ways to live up summer. This year I’m all about bubbly Prosecco and my love of olives is growing. Listen, back in the day if you tried to give me an olive I would have thrown it back into whatever bowl you pulled it from. Now that I’m older I find my tastes are changing and olives seem to have gone from “yeah, never” to “yeah, those aren’t that bad.”
And since these garlic herb roasted olives are baked with olive oil, fresh thyme, garlic, crushed red pepper and then finished with orange zest and orange juice I’m head over heels in LOVE with these babies. Plus, they are so crazy delicious when served warm. Who knew warm olives were so good? Luckily I figured this out and now I’m here to share them with you!
Oh, and guess what? Olives and Riondo Prosecco are BFF’s. Sweet bubby Prosecco with citrusy briny olives – OMG I want it all! I mean, I’ll share because I’m nice but really I want it all to myself. Ohhhhhh and please be sure to warn your guests if you make these olives with pits. No one wants to be surprised with a pit!
