Second Star to the Right Crostini

“Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning” This of course refers to the location of Neverland in Disney’s Peter Pan. In the film, Neverland is a brighter star than the star to its left, so I thought two tasty crostini stars would be a perfect way to kick off Disney Dinners: Peter…
