Maybe this should be posted in the recipe request topic, but I'm thinking of doing something special for an afternoon get-together with my MIL, SIL, Niece, my 2 DDs and I.
Since it's Girls Only, I'm thinking of doing a lighter/classier type of appetizer menu rather than my usual go-to apps. But I'm clueless, here. Probably because I'm a bit bored of my usual go-to apps, which are rather hardy when men are invited. Any suggestions for a lighter menu?
The get-together will start at 2:00 and last 'till everyone wants to go home. I don't think that I'll need to plan a dinner, but maybe I should have something in mind just in case we're having a really good time and the get-together goes into the evening hours.
Do you think I should plan on a dinner just in case? What type of dinner would you plan, whether it's served or not?
I do know that (with this crowd) the wine bottle will be flowing, and I'll have iced tea, coffee, and sodas on hand.
But I'm in a quandary as to what to serve for apps. For this type of get-together would you serve sweets? Chip's-n-dips? Finger sandwiches? Shrimp cocktail?
Or not serve any apps at all?
Thoughts, suggestions, ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, in advance.
