Nice Partay Idea by The Pioneer Woman

Here’s a good thing to throw together for a cocktail party, get together, bash, gathering, soirée…or night in front of the TV watching old movies! It can be as easy or complicated as you have time for, and you can use as fancy or un-fancy a platter (or board) as you’d like!

This is my favorite way to eat, where there is just no end to the little combinations you can put together.

I used a large 3/4 size sheet pan—this is in between a half-sheet pan and a full sheet pan, for those of you who, like me, are bad at math. Ha—with a large piece of parchment. But you can use any size you want! Or you can use any of the following:

Cutting boards
Serving trays
Wicker baskets
Ceramic/glass/metal platters
Different sizes of cake stands

Then here’s what I put on the board…though again, use your imagination!

Grilled half-slices of good sandwich bread (or you can use crackers, flatbread, pita wedges, baguette slices)
Melon wedges (or you can use pears, berries, grapes, the works)
Brie wedges (or whatever cheese suits your fancy)
Jarred pesto (I used storebought, but make yer own if you have time!)
Marinated mozzarella balls (just a little olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and seasoning)
Salami slices
Prosciutto slices (why do they look so pretty when they’re in piles like this?)
Basil leaves
Dried cherries (or you can do dates, figs, cranberries, etc)
Raw almonds (or you can do pistachios, cashews, candied pecans, etc)
Roasted asparagus (olive oil, salt and pepper! Roasted at 425 for about 10 minutes)
Parmesan wedges (again, any hard cheese)
Marinated mushrooms (quartered buttom mushrooms boiled in salted water, then drained and marinated in oil, vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning))
Marinated tomatoes and olives (same thing – a little oil/vinegar/seasoning)
Fig jam (or you can use plum preserves, anything jammy!)

Am I forgetting anything?

Party on, Wayne! (Party on, Garth.)

Fried Apples

Fried apples have been a staple on southern tables for ages, and although they're not winning any beauty contests, they more than make up for that with their buttery-brown sugar flavor. I grew up eating fried apples as a side dish to other savory foods - pork dishes, especially - but they were also served as dessert and alongside buttermilk biscuits for breakfast.
