Easiest Summer Dinner Ever
First, just open the fridge and start grabbing stuff: berries, cherries, grapes, peppers, cucumbers, radishes, carrots, celery, apples, cheese, salsa, hummus, jam, pickles, salami, cold chicken and olives are some of my favorites. Then head to the cupboard or pantry and do the same. I usually grab rolls, crackers, chips, maybe peanut butter, and/or pita bread.
Start by grabbing a platter or tray and then add a few bowls of fruit and/or dips. Here I have some cherries, berries, hummus and lemon curd (which we ate on the rolls).
Now start arranging your other foods around the bowls.
Don't forget your veggies! Also, I always try to have some protein by serving either meat, hummus. or both.
Seriously my kids love it! As long as I say, eat some veggies!, I'm not monitoring their food, they get to pick and choose what they want and everyone is happy.
Anyone else a fan of the random finger food smorgasbord? Any other staples I didn't mention?
