Drop-in guests? Here’s a quick cucumber and hummus appetizer solution.

I must be in a cucumber state of mind. 

A few days ago I blogged about a crowd-pleasing cucumber salad with yogurt-dill sauce and here I am…  chattering on about cucumbers.  Again.

Cucumbers are like pets.  They are there for you when you need a pick-me-up and they are loyally steadfast companions when you need them most.  

Event:  Drop-in guests

Pantry check:  Hothouse, slicing or everyday Walmart bin-dump cucumbers

Refrigerator check:  Hummus  

Plating check:  black sesame seeds or a drop of basil pesto or a bit of sun-dried tomato

Process check:  Peel cucumbers to remove skins.  Slice into bite sized pieces.  Spoon cute little dollop of hummus on top.  Top with sesame seeds, pesto, or sun-dried tomato

Smugness check:  Yeah, just a little something you “whipped up.” You’re so good.

I'd love to hear about ways you quickly whip up your own unexpected/expected appetizers!  Leave a comment or two!
