At Christmas, I promised my sister I’d bring the appetizers to a family dinner, but I ran out of time to cook. Farmer’s market to the rescue!
Here are some of my favorite pre-made goodies from the market. Pick up a basketful and be the hero at your next party:
Dolmas & Humus from the Mediterranean Chef (Nikki Kaya, 512-970-9150). Nikki has some of the best Humus I’ve ever tasted. One of my friends calls it “crack” because it’s so addictive.
A baguette from Texas French Bread – also recommend the rosemary ciabatta
Brie cheese from Homestead Farm – Brazos Valley Cheeses.
Goat cheese from West Wind Dairy Goats
Throw in a few carrots and other veggies and you have a great crudite.
Never let laziness get in the way of a good party!
