So, two of my friends are moving. They're having a going away party, where there will be "drinks, snacks and meats" but are asking people to being food as well. Being who they are, when I asked if there was anything in particular they wanted me to bring, they had nothing. When I asked if there was something I SHOULDN'T bring, they had nothing.
Obviously, being a chowhound, a store bought generic thing would never do. Not yet sure how many people will be attending this party, but probably around 2 dozen. Some possible thoughts have included:
-Homemade chips (pita, veggie, etc.) and dip
I'm looking for some additional suggestions. Possible dessert or drink type things are welcome, as well as savories. I've got a small kitchen and a large dog, so anything that has to sit on the counter to cool is out. Things that can be made ahead are a plus, as are things that scale up easily..
