I have a large group of moms coming over with their children for a playdate tomorrow at 11 and I'm in need of some yummy, homemade, food ideas. I'm bored with the "usual" (quiche, little sandwiches, a waffle or pancake bar, etc.).
"...just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon about to eat your face." ~Harry Dresden
My go-to list of quick foods for company:
~wraps cut into pinwheels (easy & inexpensive & easy to cater to different nutritional needs---vegetarian, diary-free, etc)
~crudite---cut up raw veggies and fruits, serve with dip or hummus
~a big old pot of red beans and rice. I make mine in the crockpot
~fruit and cheese platter. I like playing with different kinds of apples with different cheeses. nom nom nom You can add sliced cold meats to this one.
~Baked mac & cheese. I love this because I can make it the night before and just pop it in the oven the next day.
~3 (or more!) bean salad
