Ham Dilly Snacks

8 crisp dill pickle wedges
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
8 slices of ham
Stuffed olives or unpitted ripe olives

Mix softened cream cheese with garlic and onion powders. Spread cheese mixture over each slice of ham. Pat pickle wedges dry with paper towels. Lay a pickle wedge on top of the cheese on each ham slice. Roll each ham slice, jelly-roll style, to enclose the pickle. Place in refrigerator to chill for 90 minutes. When thoroughly chilled, cut each wedge into bite-sized pieces. Spear each bite with a decorative toothpick that has an olive on it. Arrange on serving platter, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Deli-sliced turkey or roast beef can be substituted for the ham.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
