Looking For Appetizers


I have never been one for a big sit down meal.. I like a variety - buffets have my name on it... Not to get a bunch of food at once but to get a bite of different foods. My husband and I entertain every so often and one of my favorite things to do is have game night - everyone brings their favorite appetizer to share and their favorite beverage.... and then the battle of the sexes begin.....

This last party I was stumped for ideas.... I ended up taking a friend's suggestion and I went to a Vietnamese food place and ordered their egg rolls.. Not only did the rolls stink up my car and house for a week - several of the party goers had to take more than one - two - three trips to the bathroom - Stinks ville I tell you Stinks ville... Never ever again... TMI? Other than the gastro egg rolls - there was the usual meatballs, chips and dip, deviled eggs, mini cheese burgers, mini cheese cakes, and assortment of meats and cheeses....

I need some ideas... some recipes... I am asking you - My bloggers - my pals.... to get me out of this appetizer rut and give some good ideas... I will thank you - my guests will thank you.... and my dog will thank you......

I like potato chips.

Are they an appetizer? I don't know. I guess this isn't really my "strong area"

an easy one I do for game night is taking any type of flour tortilla * or you could use flat bread of your choice * and get cream cheese , diced pimentoes, chopped olives, black or green, green onions, diced meats or bacon if you like. Add hidden valley dressing mix ( in package ) to the cream cheese, mixing well. Spreak the cheese mixture with the olives, ect on the tortilla's or flat breads, rolling up tight, and chilling for a few hours.. When chilled, cut on the diagonal and serve on a pretty platter! I like the spinach or the tomato flour tortialls for pretty color!!

I have many ideas for recipes for apptetizers ( they are my most favorite things to fix!! ), if you want more ideas!
