Many of these recipes for simple appetizers come from food day at work. My department would have a food day at least once a month for birthdays, holidays, someone leaving, a new hire or just because. We really didn't need a reason..it was fun and everyone got lunch. Sometimes there was so much food that it would carry over to the next day. I would go home that day with at least 10 recipes. It was fun to fix the dish myself and share it at the next party or prepare it for the family.
Serving a Few Appetizers is a
Warm Welcome to your Home
Some are great to welcome guests to an elegant dinner party with
impressive starters. Try out some easy appetizers for a more impromptu
carefree get-together like watching a football game with some Dip
Recipes, snacks and finger food recipes.
You can call them hors d’oeuvre's or finger food, but whatever you call them, I love them all.
We like to welcome our guests
to our home and get some conversation going over a light bite to eat and glass of wine. Especially if your guests are unfamiliar with each other,
what a great icebreaker.
Family Game Night
Some nights I like to just make 4 or 5 party appetizers for
family game night. Picking the right mix makes it dinner and you won't
have to interrupt the fun at the game table. Just prepare all the treats
ahead of time and enjoy the food and fun.
