Tuned in to Oprah today because Martha Stewart was the guest. IMO Oprah has become insufferable and Martha's a close second, but at least she is always good for some useful tips and good ideas. She suggested a DIY grilled cheese bar for entertaining - with a small or large variety of sliced cheeses, good breads, condiments, fresh herbs, thin-sliced fruits, vegetables, and meats. I was actually only listening, not watching, so I don't know what the set-up was as regards skillets or panini presses. She also had a couple of soups, I think. IMO, this is a winning idea for home entertaining and group meetings that include lunch. Even a fairly elaborate spread can be economical, and unused food can be taken home for future use as components of other meals.
