Yesterday moning, I received a phone call (at 6am) from DH stating that he had had a very bad night at work (he is an ER RN in a large hospital) and was wondering if we could host a happy hour for about a dozen of his co-workers. At 8:30. On a Sunday morning.
I did a quick mental checklist about what that meant to me (coffee, stat!) and of course said yes. I was able to pull it togther pretty well- we had some wine and beer (try not to judge- it was 8:30 PM to them!), some fruit , phylo cups and eggs, green onion (so I made mini-quiches) and we had cheese and crackers left over from God knows when.
But, it got me to thinking that we should really have some supplies on hand for spontaneous get-togethers, and I wondered what that might be. So, dear CHr's I am turning to you for suggestions for foods that 1) store well and 2) can be whipped up quickly for an 'instant party'.
