We live in a neighborhood that is under construction. There are six houses currently occupied. One neighbor has invited everyone over to meet and have a few drinks. Their invitation states they will provide wine, beer, liquor and heavy hors d' oeuvres. The invitation also states "Please bring anything else you would like." Besides a nice bottle of red and white, what else would be appropriate? I make a killer "Death by Chocolate" brownie, but a dessert type food just doesn't seem to fit the mood. I usually don't eat brownies while drinking a martini. The wife has put the kibosh on spiced nuts, or blanched vegatables with a green goddess dip. I am at a loss. I want to show the host that we put forth some effort, without trying to go over the top. I know that whatever we bring, it should not require anything of the hostess except a place on the table or counter. Suggestions please.
