for people who you don't know, and if you don't want to take something hot, cheese and bread.


I wouldn't eat wings at a party. Too much of a liability - one slip and you look like an idiot for the rest of the night with a stain on your shirt. Something boneless seems like it would be best.

All they ever bring is myrrh. What's myrrh? I will not bring a cinamon babka, either.

Maybe you should bring a marble rye instead?

Kabosh the kabosh. Bring spiced nuts. People will eat them up and you'll get a slam-dunkey on your better half.

Get a loaf of focaccia bread and cut it into cubes. Add cubes of a very good hard cheese such as a parmesan (Parmigiano Reggiano). Finally, include an assortment of various olives that you can find at the specialty stores. Arrange it all in different piles on a large platter and provide a lot of tooth picks. Pretty easy to do and goes well with about everything that they will be drinking.

Thanks DMcG for the endorsement. I wanted to make something, not just assemble some store bought items. The loaf smells very cheesey, in a good way. Tastes great, too. Also, it was a very easy to assemble and bake. Thanks to everyone who gave an opinion or witty comment.

How about Pigs-in-a-Blanket? They are a crowd pleaser. Trust me. I'm making them again tonight for a little informal family get-together.

Hilshire Farms Little smokies
Crescent rolls from Pilsbury.

Cut the little triangles into smaller triangles, roll little smokies in 'em, and bake until golden brown. Awesome.

What about Chicken Drumettes? Wrap the bone in a little foil and serve with a serviette if you're worried about them being messy.

I think you boys might be a bit late to the party- literally. How does one bump a thread like this? Seriously, how did you find this thread Ernesto?

Bring pickled herring. You'll be able to take it home at the end of the night and enjoy it after the party.

Hahah I didn't even notice this thread was four years old!
