"Toothpick" Dinner

When my girls have friends over, many times they will request a "Toothpick" dinner. Ok - even when they don't have a friend over they request this meal. Most of the time it consists of their favorite "Chicken Apple Sausages" from Trader Joes, green beans or broccoli, and any fruit I have in the house. The concept is that the entire meal can be eaten with a fun toothpick.

The middle section of our glass T.V. tray is a cheese sauce for dipping their broccoli and sausage! Sometimes I put cheese cubes in this spot. The crescent rolls are smaller then usual. I divide each canned roll in half to make a smaller bite.

What would you serve for a toothpick dinner?

SOUP! What do ya think? I like the idea of toothpick dinners. When I was little my mom ALWAYS served a bowl of pineapple chunks with toothpicks stuck in most of the pineapple pieces. I even have those kind of lunch trays.

Soup - What a great idea - that will keep your family around the dinner table for HOURS! That might be too much family time - tee hee!

when it's really hot out and we don't want to use the oven, we have cold plates and most of the food could be eaten using a toothpick, or a kay-bob (as my 2 1/2 year old calls it).

The cold plate consists of things like: deli meat cut into chunks, cheese cubes, diced (so you can use the toothpick) hard boiled eggs, sugar snap peas, assorted fruits, pickles, pepperoni... you get the idea:)
