Something about fall makes me want to throw a party! There’s something about football season, cool weather, boots and sweaters that make me excited to heat up the oven and make a great meal to share. My favorite trick for throwing a great party is mixing up great homemade food with some items that are already prepared. This helps me keep my kitchen time to a minimum while still serving fabulous dishes. Who wants to be in the kitchen for the whole party?
Last week I got a package of these delicious chickpea snacks in the mail and couldn’t wait for my next gathering to break them out. The opportunity presented itself soon as all of my family were over to try them out. With 6 adults and 5 kids to be my guinea pigs I ripped open the bags and let them dig in. Even my 75+ year old grandma was munching on falafel and bombay spice chickpeas! These were a hit, everyone thought they were a tasty and different kind of snack. I’ve since caught them looking for the bags in my cupboards when they’re over to visit. In my book, that’s a successful snack!
I’m teaming up again with my friends at Saffron Road to host a Twitter chat all about these great new snack foods as well as their tempting hors d’ouevres. I hope you’ll join me for a virtual fall party!
