Last fall a few co-workers and I decided to have what we called a “Sampler Sunday” – meaning that each of us brought in something to eat that day. One co-worker brought in fruit, another chips and salsa, homemade baked goods, and I brought in an appetizer platter.
How I make snack platters:
Fast forward to last month, where one of the employees from another department who had been there on that “Sampler Sunday” announced that last weekend was her last weekend being employed there as she was moving to another state. She told everyone that she’d like to do a little potluck at work with whomever would like to participate. Then she told one of her co-workers how I make a great “charcutterie platter”. Well then I of course had to bring something to cheer her on to her next venture.
I didn’t have a lot of time, so I had decided to just make some caprese bites. As I knew that this employee was gluten-free.
But, I should have known myself better, because and hour prior to the time I was supposed to leave for work I found myself rummaging through my refrigerator searching for other snacks to fix alongside them.
