CHEESE & BREAD
My husband is greek so feta cheese is always in our refridgerater. Trader Joes sells a great one that comes in a plastic box and brine. It lasts a pretty long time so you don't have to worry about eating it the day you get it. Some sort of bread can always be stored in the freezer and heated when needed. Fresh is always better though. Gouda seems to be a cheese that a lot of people like so I like to have a block of that on hand as well. My chop block is always being used to serve. Practical and pretty.
Hummus is on my shopping list weekly, just because it makes such a great healthy snack, and is perfect for last minute guests. I swear by Trader Joe's Spicy Hummus. Next just reach for any cracker or bread on hand, and any veggie in the fridge. Something about a crunchy cucumber with hummus that I love. Think outside the box when choosing your serve ware. Here I used a sugar bowl to serve the hummus.
What are your quick and easy go to's for guests?
