When you are “Entertaining Elegantly” – it does not need to be stuffy or stuck-up or difficult! Throwing your food “on a stick” is a great way to have beautiful presentation, easy to grab goodies, that everyone will love!
Make skewered antipastos for your next picnic, they are perfect for a grab and go hearty bite between whatever activity you have going on with your picnic. No need to grab junk food or stop your fun to sit and eat – grab a stick & have fun. You could also enjoy these as tasty appetizers, a great way to start off your next party and impress your friends. These skewered antipastos are even perfect for a formal gathering (maybe in a tall vase).
This “recipe” is not even much of a recipe – it is pretty much just an inspiration guideline, so have fun! Get ready for some impressed friends (and you don’t even have to tell them how easy and fun they were to make)
- tomato (grape or cherry)
- string cheese, sliced
- others options: bread, salami, ham, or Italian Flavors of choosing
Get your skewers & have all of your ingredients ready. Choose a pattern & flavor combination that makes you smile & just get to arranging a few pieces of tasty goodies onto each skewer. There is really nothing more to this than making a combination of flavors that you like, putting them on sticks, & then arranging on a platter (or maybe even in small groupings of tall clear vases).
And I leave you with this, Today’s Question of the Day… What is your favorite *easy* treat to create when entertaining?
