Apparently we do, but not necessarily in the way one would think and, of course, this based on just a sampling of one. We seem to serve the simplest snacks, least fancy. Most others seem to put far more time and effort into their snack preparation than we do. Well, other than you and Popeye's. That's more along our lines.

We're quite impressed with some of the snacks presented in this thread.

Well I'll keep the thread alive. Since nobody liked my fondue idea, so I'll try something else...

Pan fry chicken breasts (I did 3 pounds) in olive oil and garlic cloves, with salt, pepper, & dill. Don't over-spice, you want the chicken to be fairly bland.

Remove from the pan and rough chop. While still hot, scoop over the chicken one jar of apricot preserves, and top it all with one package of goat cheese.

Serve with broiled red and gold potatoes, steamed broccoli, asian pear (DO NOT SKIP THE PEAR!!!) and a Riesling. I truly enjoy cooking for people, and this dish has been a favorite.

Sounds delicious Matt, but more of dinner than snack item I should think. It is morning time right now and that still looks incredibly appetizing.

I did serve it as a dinner item, and it works great for that. You could also buffet it out and let people grab just a couple of each item.

Should have mentioned that.

For the record I do your grilled sausage idea but normally use duck sausage or wild boar hot links. Do them up like you do the jalapeņo with mustard and tell folks after the fact what their eating. Haven't heard a complaint yet and folks have thanked me for not telling them first as they'd have likely passed and missed out.

Grilling or pan frying bacon wrapped dove breasts are another that folks love. Pan fry them similar to Matts chicken dish above(that I'm trying tonight as a dinner item) and warn folks new to that dish to watch out for shotgun pellets.

Some that I have served....

Stuff grape leafs (meat/rice mixture) Make at home then freeze them 20 count per freezer bag. Heat in microwave when needed.

Humus with veggy sticks.

Caprisi on tooth picks....cherry tomato, slice of mozzarella cheese then a basil leaf..repeat one more time. Salt and pepper then drizzle a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar over them.

Shrimp with remoulade. Boil peeled shrimp and set to cool in refrig. Make a simple remoulade with Helmanns mayo, creole mustard, coupla dashes of worshchestershire sauce and black pepper. All can be prepared ahead of time

Like Craig, I think I may have try that for dinner tonight. Looks great. I'll see if I have the time to stop by the store on the way home from my remote office today.

Wifey B: Don't want to ignore the Fondue. Cool idea if not moving. Could do a snack or dessert fondue.

On this gourmet meal. Excuse me, snack. I have to go all the way to Asia to get a pear and you're so adamant about it? Oh my. Well, guess we're really lousy as we just grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and some chicken wings for lunch out on the water as we had to get the heck out of the city on the lake celebrating like never before. Everyone on Cleveland is at the parade I think. We've watched it a little. If you haven't looked at it, you should. Looks like Times Square on New Years Eve. All seems to be going well.

Ok, now we've got some snacks out. Fudge brownies, marble cheesecake, chocolate tortes.

Slow boat means more time to think about options and to prepare while underway . . .

But less time to get to a market to get the ingredients once you get there...

Assuming people had already eaten dinner, I'd suggest your favorite, simple desserts. Perhaps start with brownies or cookies. Haven't gone down the dessert aisle for a while, so I've few specific suggestions. If you've a capable freezer (I don't), it's hard to go wrong with ice cream.

Wifey B: True. We made it to Kroger after arrival today and have fresh fruits and melons and berries and veggies. Plus some baked goods for dessert. And shrimp. And more.

Greetings,
Well, I still don't know what Mr. k considers the "same old stuff" as I asked in post #4. Is it a few bags of chips and some dip? Raw veggies and onion soup mix in sour cream? Beanie Weenies?

Granted, some of the "snacks" sound very good but what is the time frame that Mr. k is looking for? Quick and dirty, as I mentioned above or is he willing to put some time into preparation? Pre-prepared or cooking/assembly under way?

I have numerous suggestions but hesitate to contribute without knowing the "design parameters"...

Contribute away RT. We may be able to use your suggestions, or they may spark ideas even if they don't fit the original RFP.

These are a couple of SD entrees that I love! I won't go in to what everything is but rather i just wanted to show the TF folks that we SD skippers eat pretty well!

Walt, that's definitely not a snack.

Our idea of a meal but not an after-dinner snack:

Instead of the tortillas with the CC, try endive leaves.
