I'm helping plan a bachelorette party, and I need recipes! I'm going to try to stick with the fingery appetizerish foods, and I really need easy, quick recipes (as I have to work the day of the party and need things that can be finished pretty quickly). Things that can be made ahead of time and/or either frozen or refrigerated. Any ideas? I've looked though cookbooks, and have only found a couple of recipes.

HELP, please!

Meatballs:

Put equal parts chili sauce and seedless grape jelly (it sounds weird, but works out really well) in a medium saucepan on a hot plate or in a crockpot. 'Melt' until mixed. Add frozen meatballs and allow to heat through. Have guests use toothpicks. Stir occassionally throughout evening and add additional meatballs as needed.

Running and riding everywhere ...
My favorite "easy" ones are the ones that don't have to be cooked at all. Make a fancy veggie tray (cherry tomatoes, slices of peppers, celery, pickles, cauliflower, broccoli) and a couple of dip choices. Then do a cheese and cracker tray...use 3-4 kinds of cheese and 3-4 kinds of crackers. Also do a fruit tray (apple slices, strawberries, grapes, star fruit, watermelon, cantaloupe, etc) and a couple of dips. I really like the flower pots with the fruit...they're a bit more work but they make a great centerpiece for the food table. Cut it into different shapes/sizes and put on a skewer and put into a fancy flower pot.

It's all good for you, mostly low fat perfect for a bunch of girls watching their weight before a wedding.

BOL also has its own collection of recipes from posters.

Those of us who contributed to the other recipe thread may be surprised to see what was carried over there.

oh you don't know the half honey

I am good and do what the heart docs tell me, but they also tell me when I get the urge to be bad, to just go ahead and binge and get it out of my system

so, thats why I gotta eat the whole container, or and look out when it is my time to eat sausage ---- whoo hoooo

Thanks! Although, I think I'll pass on the PB&J.

I think I'll have to go check out costco for this stuff! I don't ever think of places like that since the closest is about an hour - hour & a half away!

Fried Bologna Sangwich


Heat up skillet.

Take out bologna and make 3 slits half from the middle out to the edges evenly around the bologna slice. (if not, bologna bubbles up and doesn't fry evenly)

while doing this toast bread.

Lather bread with mustard and/or mayo

Slap bologna on bread

Now you have a fried bologna sangwich!

Sounds like you need to bring a cooler and make a trip to Costco...even with the drive, if you buy everything there, you'll certainly save some time. The Costco/Kirkland brand vodka is well-priced there and supposedly as good as Grey Goose (heard this from several people).
