Welcome guests with some goodies! These snacks are quick, easy, and just a little bit elegant.
Last week I had the opportunity of welcoming two very favorite people into my home. My littles and I headed down to the airport to pick up Stephanie and Amy. On the way home we stopped at the French bakery for some baguettes. I threw in a few chocolate croissants and eclairs for good measure. I knew I had cheese, apples, and drinks at home.
My husband and the other boys joined us for a little afternoon noshing. It was so easy, so elegant, and so tasty. If I do say so myself. The Kaltbach Gruyère that Emmi sent me was amazing. Amazing. The double-creme brie I bought at Trader Joe’s wasn’t too shabby, either.
You don’t have to be tricky to make some delicious snacks to welcome your guests. Consider these options:
- fresh baguette
- chocolate croissants
- a variety of cheeses
- apple slices or other seasonal fruit
- sparkling water, wine, beer, or juice
- olives, pickles, and other pickled vegetables
Pull out a bunch of cutting boards to slice it all up and serve from. Place salad plates on the table. Pour out the glasses.
That’s all there is to it!
