Foodie Friday: Canapes

The term "foodie" gets thrown around loosely and I often think to myself, " Am I a foodie?" and "What exactly qualifies one to be a foodie?" Today before posting I looked up the term and came up with this description : foodie is a gourmet, or a person who has an ardent or refined interest in food and alcoholic beverages.[1] A foodie seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out of convenience or hunger. Now whether or not I can be considered a foodie, one thing is for sure - I love food! Canapes and hors d'oeuvres are high on my list and I would happily substitute dinner for an assortment of fancy yummies on a tray. Below are some of my canapé picks from various food blogs and websites. Comment below and let me know if you are a foodie and what your fave foods are. Enjoy! 

Assorted canapés on a french baguette. Looking a little like heaven to me! Dying to try the smoked salmon creations, cherry tomato and boiled egg delectables.
