Food Tip of the Day #3

Put it on a stick.

Make dinner time, happy hour, or even an afternoon snack a veritable riot by putting food on a skewer. The most obvious skewer is a beef, chicken, pork or some sort of fish/shellfish kebab. Try Grilled Teriyaki Sea Scallops, Lemon Barbecued Chicken and Shrimp Kebabs or the Asian inspired Pork Tenderloin Kushiyaki. For a nibble with drinks, sandwich small chunks of fresh mozzarella between cherry tomatoes that has been cut in half. Skewer on toothpicks and drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette and some finely chopped basil for a caprese salad on a stick. Have a snack for the kids with skewers of fresh fruit and cheese and let the party begin.

My daughter went crazy over these little jeweled-top plastic tooth pics, so now if I cut up her sandwich and use the tooth pics, there is no fuss at meal time. I love little nibbles anyway. Great idea with the mini-caprese on a stick...I will have to try that!
