a tuesday taste: appetizers for dinner

One of my favorite easy suppers to make comprises of a few filling, delicious appetizers in place of one typical meal. Here are some tasty ideas:

cheese tray

A small cheese tray with crackers and olives – I love all types of cheeses and putting together a cheese plate is a great way to try new kinds. It is also filling and puts me in the “small bite” mood. Williams-Sonoma has a great article here with advice on assembling a great cheese tray.

shrimp cocktail


Shrimp is delicious and a low calorie food. Shrimp cocktail is a good source of protein and an easy appetizer to make. I typically buy it fresh and cooked, but if you need tips on how to prepare uncooked shrimp, check out this Martha Stewart article here.

TJs meatballs


Trader Joe’s has yummy appetizers to choose from! A bag of TJ’s Mini Masala Meatballs is one of my favorite. Buy some sauce to go with them and you’re good to go!

parm pups

Pigs in a blanket are always a great option! You can make them yourself, or pick up another Trader Joe’s winner: Parmesan Pastry Pups. The parmesan flavor is amazing!
