It’s so easy to throw some fun cheeses, crackers and olives in my cart at the grocery, that by the time I make the dessert, and prepare the meal for a party, the appetizer often falls through the cracks of my party planning. When friends ask what they can bring when coming to dinner, ‘appetizer!’ is the first think I think of. I’ve never thought the appetizers very important, I guess. But I’m starting to re-think this.
It introduces the meal, a prelude for the symphony to come.
It sets the tone for the party.
It gives people who might be meeting for the first time, something to share together.
And in the spring and summer with fruits showing up at all the farmer’s markets, it can be a very fun way to feature something simple paired with those cheeses.
Here’s an appetizer I created for an article for Ask Miss A magazine last month. Please go here on the magazine to get this simple recipe for your next party. It used the Roasted Strawberries I posted yesterday !Pin It
