How about some veggies to balance out the season’s sugar overload? This festive Veggie Appetizer Wreath looks great at a gathering and couldn’t be easier to throw together.
Veggie Appetizer Wreath
2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon ranch dressing mix
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1-1/2 cups chopped fresh broccoli florets
1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1 cup finely chopped celery
1. Remove crescent dough from packaging (do not unroll). Cut each tube into 8 slices. Arrange in an 11-inch circle on an ungreased 14-inch round baking pan.
2. Bake at 375°F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to a serving platter. Allow to cool completely.
3. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, ranch dressing mix and garlic powder until smooth. Spread on wreath then top with broccoli, red pepper, chopped celery and celery leaves.

I am not a big fan of this time of year so I try to find joy wherever I can. This video of people dancing to the always brilliant Perfume Genius was today’s moment of hope and happiness. There may be wreaths on graves, but it’s offset by the power of movement on mood.
