Mini Tuna Melts with Rosemary

Had some wonderful friends over for the weekend and what better way to greet them after one had a (6 hour!) drive and the other a 3 hour bus ride. With some cold beer (courtesy of my favorite Stella Artois) and some hot appetizers (courtesy of Rachel Ray) mini tuna melts, portabella mushroom pizzas, arugula and pear wrapped in proscuitto we were ready to quieten those rumbling bellies and give some much needed rest to our traveling nomads. This was of course, only a snack to tide us over- as we were to hit the town later in the evening for a sushi extravaganza! Enjoy! XoxO ❤>Üdo
