I've done a veggie (or fruit) tray in a tree shape. Brocolli,cherry tomato ornaments, yellow and red pepper strips for garland,etc. Always cute!

I just saw that on a post below. Such a cute idea. I'm gonna do that for my veggies. I've seen it done with fruit but never veggies.

An old family favorite is Pepperoni Pinwheels. Made with Crescent Roll Dough, and ground up pepperoni, shredded mozarella some oregano and an egg to hold it all together. Very easy and don't last long at our house.

Thanks for the reminder. I made those last year and the kids really liked them.

I've shouted out this recipe a million times and will continue to do can make a couple of cookie sheets of these a day in advance, takes about 10 minutes to put together, and people love them! I bake 10 minutes or so at 375* Familiar flavors that are sure to please.

I have made these before. I'll have to keep them in mind. I was going to do a reuben dip on Thanksgiving and accidentally bought roast instead of corned beef......

Hummus III

Submitted by: RC2STEP 
As a spread, dip or garlicky pita filling, classic hummus is both delicious and satisfying. Best of all, it's whipped up in seconds in a blender or food processor.

I asked my brother what he would like for apps and he asked for ruffles potato chips and onion dip. So not adventurous but yummy IMHO.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Submitted by: Valerie Lynne 
Just imagine a cute display of penguins, made with black olives, carrots and cream cheese! You can add scarves and hats by using fresh red pepper strips, or canned pimentos cut into different shapes. Use frilly toothpicks if you can.
