Anyone who knows me well, knows that I love snacks!  Mostly at a pre-parties . . . with my girls . . . and lot's of wine.  But either way, I love me some snacks!

This pear and spinach lavash is a great way to start the evening without getting too full before dinner.  The lavash is so thin that it almost feels like you're eating a delightful little water cracker!  So give it a go.   Mix up the toppings and make it your own.
