I get together with my girlfriends every Monday and we watch a tv show, gossip and eat.

Normally, we just do chips and dips... but I am looking for ideas of other things?

Something super quick and easy - but good!

Thanks!

Maybe do a little searching for Spanish Tapas recipes? Neat little appetizer type dishes usually served (deliciously so) with a chilled, dry Fino Sherry, also recommended

Hopefully this helps.......takes a couple of minutes.


Dip for any kind of fruit you like. Mix a jar of marshmallow creme or fluff with 1 8ozpkg and 1 4oz. pkg cream cheese. Dip the fruit in it. Yum

The other, Slice kielbasa and put a layer in a casserole dish....sprinkle with brown sugar then another layer kielbasa then brown sugar...just keep doing that.
Put in microwave 3-4 minutes or until hot. Serve with toothpicks...

One more which is always a hit...

pkg english muffins
1 can tiny shrimp (drain it)
1 jar Kraft Old English cheese (in refrigerator section)
3/4 stick butter
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 tsp garlic powder.
Preheat oven to 350.

Mix everything together and then spread on split english muffins. Cut into 4ths.
Place on cookie sheet. Cook till golden brown..about 2-30 minutes.

Enjoy

I make these shrimp puffs too. You can also prepare them, flash freeze them, pop them in a plastic bag and store in the freezer. When ready to serve, just put under the broiler until bubbly and serve.

How about raw veggies with bleu cheese or ranch dressing. It can't get much easier and it's healthy, too. Then, you could finish the night with brownies and ice cream. Of course, our old stand by while watching TV would be seasoned pop corn and soda.

Don't know if this is "simple" or not... not as simple as veggies and dip, but easier than others.

Buy some Pillsbury (or other brand) pizza dough. Roll it out... then top it with whatever you like (pepperoni, sausage, cheese, etc.). Then roll it into a tube (more or less). Fold under the ends (to keep the cheese in) and place it seam down on a cookie sheet. Cook at about 400-425 for 15-20 mins. Wait until it cools a little, cut it into 1" widths (any less and it will spill out all over).

Mini pizza swirls!!

Get some frozen appetizers (tiropita, spanakopita, quiches, etc.) and shove them in the oven! Cold rolls work, too.

Bake Brie is super easy and really good! Place a round of brie on a sheet of pastry dough, top with jam and walnuts, wrap up ends of pastry dough and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

Any kind of cheese and crackers is always good to me!
