Finger-food platter

January 24th, 2010

 My finger-food platter

Every once in a while members of a running club, that I am a member of, gather for a finger-food potluck.  Being a food-lover, I thoroughly enjoy these occasions.  What surprises me the most is the selection of “unhealthy” foods and beer that flow at these things.  These runners are all bones and a little skin.  They amaze me!

The question arose today before I went to our annual gathering, “What should I bring?”  As I usually do when I don’t have a plan, I looked in the pantry, fridge, and various counters cluttered with nibbles of this or that left from a previous meal.  I found:

  • 1 green apple
  • 2/3 loaf of Pan Marino bread from Big River (This bread is SO GOOD!  It has fresh rosemary in it and a nice layer of sea salt on the crust.)
  • 1 big block of Tillamook Cheddar Cheese

sliced tillamook cheddar cheese

“Perfect.”  I thought, a platter of bread, cheese and fruit!  Nothing fancy, but off I went slicing, coring and arranging.  Of course, you can see the results.

If you are ever hungry and don’t know what to eat, just take a look around the pantry and be creative!  I hope you enjoy!
