Over the holidays, I hosted a Christmas party for our friends to meet our new son in law. Unfortunately I was not taking many pictures and only have pictures of a few of the dishes I had prepared for the party.
This became an interesting party as we had opened our house to host a young Syrian family just before Christmas. The flavors of Serbia were introduced in the menu to our guests.

Spinach and Artichoke Bread Ring Dip Baked in a Cast Iron
This was such a hit that it quickly disappeared when taken out of the oven, before being place on the table
Two rows of small dough buns were arranged around the edge of a greased Cast Iron pan. In the centre was Spinach and Artichoke dip.
