Appetizers and More

Webster defines Appetizer as a food or drink taken before a meal to stimulate the appetite. 

Sometimes those fancy little things stimulate your appetite way to much and by the time dinner arrives you have reached your fill.

Our answer for Appetizers are Sunday afternoons, Friday evenings, or just anytime you don't feel like cooking.

Remember I said when you don't feel like cooking, so we have to make these easy and simple. 

My answers is this nifty little Crock Pot, in fact 2 are even better than 1!! Give it a try with:

Rival White Crock Pot, 1.5 qts.

2 Can Bean Dip

1 Can Bean with Bacon Soup

1 Can Cheddar Cheese Soup

1 Tbls. dried onion

1 tesp. garlic powder

1/2 tesp. chili power (or to taste)

Add all to slower cooker and cook until warmed through, serve with scoop type chips.

You could also try Select Brands FB-77 Pro Pots Football Design Slow Cooker for that special football fan in your family.  Dip works great here also.  This one makes great Little Smokes with Barbeque sauce.

Why not nibble on Finger Drumsticks

1 pounds chicken wings - 12 to 15
salt and pepper
1 cup chicken bouillon
1 tablespoon cornstarch
cup sugar
teaspoon salt
teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt

Cut off and discard wing tips; divide each wing in half by cutting through joint with a sharp knife. Sprinkle wings with salt and pepper. Place in slow-cooking pot. Pour bouillon over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours or until tender.

Drain; place on broiler pan. Meanwhile, in small saucepan, combine cornstarch with sugar, salt, ginger, pepper, lemon juice, soy sauce and garlic salt. Simmer, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Brush some sauce on chicken; brown under broiler.

Turn; brush sauce on chicken and brown other side. Makes about 25 to 30 appetizers. Recipe may be doubled for a party. Keep appetizers hot and serve from slow-cooking pot.
