    Need some food ideas for party

    Tomorrow night we are having a b-day party for a friend. He's turning 25.

    There will be about 10 adults here and 6 kids.

    His wife is bringing the b-day cake. I'll serve lemonade as a drink. But, I need some more ideas for finger type foods to go along with the cake.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!!!

    One year I did sesame chicken wings for my son's birthday party--they were a big hit, but also a bit messy--some people are uncomfortable with that. . .

    Chips and dip are always a hit. . . also, cut up veggies. People like pretzels too. How about fruit on skewers, the way you would do shishkebab?

    ohhohh here ya go.
    Take some club crackers, top each with a 1/4th piece of raw bacon, and top that with loads of parmeasan cheese. Then place them on a tin foil covered cookie cheet and in the oven at 250 degrees for TWO hours after that, let them sit until cool. Then serve, if you have any left over, put them in an airtight container on the counter.

    Check out the pinned recipe thread for several variations on pinwheels: flour tortillas spread with a creamcheese & "x" ingredient mixture, rolled and sliced. I made cranberry-feta version for a neighborhood thing that even the kids enjoyed.

    Crackers and dip or chips and dip are always good. I have a couple of pampered chef cookbooks with fantastic party recipes.

    Oh, bruschetta would be good too.

    I was going to suggest pinwheels too! They're super easy and yummy!

    In addition to drinks (lemonade, tea, koolaid) I usually have a veggie tray and dip, bbq cocktail weiners, bbq meatballs, and a cheese and cracker tray at birthday parties.

    Another thing you could make that is easy and delicious is an Apple & Banana salad. You just cut and core apples (I cut them into bite size pieces) and cut bananas into bite size pieces and mix them together with some Miracle Whip. Very yummy!

    Doodle, I wish I could post that darn recipe! It was FlaMom's recipe from years ago and I can't find it anymore.

    I had a look online and found this in several places. . . I *think* it is similar to what I made, and it sounds yummy and easy. There's nothing like a chicken wing supper every once in a while.

    Sesame Chicken Wings

    1/2 cup soy sauce
    1/3 cup water
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons sesame oil or olive oil
    4 green onions with tops, sliced
    1/2 medium onion, sliced
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 to 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
    Dash pepper
    2 1/2 pounds chicken wings

    In a large plastic bag or glass dish, combine all the ingredients, except the chicken wings. Once these ingredients are well blended; add the chicken wings; coat well.

    Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Remove chicken to a shallow rack in a baking pan; discard the marinade.

    Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Turn and bake about 20 minutes longer or until tender.
