27 Mar 2014 Quick, Easy and Classy Entertaining Eats
 |  Category: Delicious!

Because we are not all master Chef’s some of us need ideas to throw together for that quick entertaining get together with friends. Recently our friends came over, the wife being from Italy I was sure should would be hard to please… but she loved it! Give this a try the next time you entertain!

3 bottles of red and white wine… think spring picnic or summer evening types.
1 large bunch of both green and red grapes- you could even add peach or pear slices!
2-3 boxes a variety of crackers: I recommend water crackers, plain, pepper or rosemary. Wheat with flax and a fun sesame.
Dried fruits: I love to offer dates and apricots.
Lightly salted nuts: try cashews or hazel nuts
1 loaf of fresh baked bread and butter
2 kinds of salami or hard cured meats
2 types of hard cheeses: Sharp Cheddar and a Swiss or Havarti.
1 soft cheese like Brie- warmed in the oven for 15 min then topped with a drizzle of honey.

Enjoy!
