beautiful jar half full of olives and cover them with an average
extra-virgin olive oil. The olives flavor the oil, and the oil in turn
preserves the olives, which you can scoop out as you need them to serve as
an hors d'oeuvre or to flavor pizza, pastas, stews and sauces. To flavor
the oil and olives, you can also add a peeled garlic clove, 2 or 3 strips
of lemon or orange zest, rosemary or thyme sprigs or fennel seeds.

Small round balloons
two or three different colors of semi-sweet baking chocolate
Blow up several small round balloons, wash them and set them aside. Using
two or three different colors of semi-sweet baking chocolate, melt small
blocks of the chocolate (two at a time) in the microwave or on the stove
following the directions on the package. Spread the chocolate out on wax
paper in two or three lines that are about 2 inches wide and very close
together. You want the colors to look like stripes next to one another.
Using the balloons, roll the bottom of each balloon in the chocolate
rolling only halfway up the balloon making a chocolate bowl. Make sure the
chocolate is thickly layered on the balloon as you will be using these
bowls to serve a dessert in.
Place the chocolate covered balloons on the baking sheet and into the
fridge until just before you are ready to use them.
Remove the balloons from the fridge and using a pair of scissors,
carefully cut the top of each of the balloons to remove the air and
then remove all the balloon fragments from the bowl, you are now ready to
serve your favorite dessert in your chocolate bowls!
