Need something quck and easy!?

This Friday we are having a carry in at work but its only finger food types of food. I know someone is making a cheeseball. I need some suggestions on what I can bring. Keep in mind it needs to be simple. I have a 5 month old son at home!


For the one who asked why i can't cook with a 5 month old in the house. Um I can but I don't really want to take the time to cook something difficult just for a simple finger food carry in for work on a casual Friday.

    This is Super-Easy. My friend, Lou used to bring this when we had "Food Day" at work.

    Quick Ham Salad

    1 can of ham - drained.(Not the kind David Letterman gives away, but the little cans like flaked tuna comes in!)

    Mayo (I never really measure, I just get a heaping table spoon. You may want a bit more or less!)

    dill pickles chopped (You can use 5 or 6 sliced pickles chopped or if you have spears, I usually just use one.)

    Dill pickle juice (Just pour about 2 tablespoons of the puice that the pickles are in.)

    Mix together and serve with crackers!

    What's your budget and party size? My suggestions:

    1. Chicken wings - get drummetts (trimmed wings) and a marinade. Dump them both in a slow cooker for 3-4 hours on high and that's it.

    2. Vegetable tray - not so exciting, but depending on where you work, people may really appreciate a healthy choice. You can also buy these all ready.

    3. Shrimp Cocktail - like the veg tray, healthy and simple. You can buy it at most supermarkets.

    Pita and hummus!

    You can buy pre-made hummus at the store.

    If you have extra time - cut the pitas into triangles, brush a little olive oil on then and then salt with sea salt (you can get a small container of this that comes with a grinder attached at the grocery store). Pop them in the toaster oven/oven for just a few minutes. They don't have to be warm when you serve them, they usually stay nice and toasted for a few hours.

    I always make either spinach dip with knorrs vegetable soup. All you do is add frozen spinach, mayo, sourcream, and the powder soup, refrigerate and bring chips. Or, ask your local butcher to cut you chicken drummettes. Season them up with a little seasoning, salt, pepper, garlic powder etc. and bake them in the oven turning once. They are delicious and oh so easy. Last suggestion-Taco dip. Brown ground meat and add taco seasoning. Layer refried beans, the meat, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, olives and tomotoes. Bring chips and your done!!! Hope one of these helps!!

    Pigs in a blanket. Take a can of crescent rolls and wrap them around vegetarian sausage links. Bake them at 350 for about 15-20 minutes. Had these at a cocktail party and they were so good!
