    Purchasing: Soft cracker bread is sturdier than a tortilla but more flexible than a pizza shell. Look for it near the pita bread in the deli section of your grocery store.

    Variation: Vary the sandwich fixins to please your gangs taste buds. Add extra veggies such as shredded carrots. Switch out the meat and cheese. Add zing with a squirt of mustard.

    Platter foods can be elaborate or humble in origin. The price ranges from moderate to pricey. You can mix different types of finger foods on a platter in a pretty arrangement. Here's an example; bbq riblets, pups in a blanket, onion rings, hot wings, celery, and hot peppers. /fill some small bowls with blue cheese salad dressing, barbecue sauce, mustard and ketchup. Line the platter with some fancy lettuce toss in some cherry tomatoes and green onions,green and black olives and there you have it. I served this at my anti super bowl party every year, along with some other things. I hope that I was some help.

    you do it backwards; Figure out what you want your platters to look like in terms of color , texture , sizes and then go out and get the food needed to execute those designs.
