Office Birthday foods

I work in an organization of 100, in a department of 11. After years of each person at the organization getting a cake on their birthday (expensed), the hammer as come down, no more cakes.

But my department doesn't want to miss out on their birthday goodies - so we decided we'd bring our own treats when it's our birthday. - like you might have done in elementary school - like brought your own cupcakes for the class.

Last year on my birthday I did an ice cream sundae bar. Some people have brought: cakes (store bought), pies (store bought) strawberry shortcake (homemade), candy apples (store bought), chips and salsa. So I'm looking for new ideas. It doesn't have to be something sweet, it can be savory - it can be anytime of the day appropriate. Some ideas I've had for this year thus far have been milk and cookies or veggies and dips. Bagels and donuts are done to death during non-birthdays.

I don't really want to have to cook something, especially if it needs to be reheated at work or for that matter, bake at all. Just looking for ideas of easy treats that aren't too expensive.

I made quiche one year and it just doesn't reheat well in the microwave so I'm looking for something that either doesn't need to be reheated or reheats well in an office microwave.
