What Are The Essential Components Of Heavenly Finger Food?

When entertaining guests (especially after not being able to for some time), it’s a nice idea to pull out all the stops. This includes having adequate seating for everyone, perhaps curating a focal point of entertainment (even if this means selecting a few great movies to watch), and of course, granting access to refreshments.


This means that putting out a little spread of finger food can be a great idea, because not only is this accessible, but it can help your guests satisfy their hunger wiithout feeling overly bloated. Furthermore, finger food is enjoyable, can be had in many different varieties, and doesn’t have to offend those who may already have eaten or have yet to eat. In other words, your guests can take as much or as little as they’d like without feeling pressured.


But what are the essential components of heavenly finger food? In this post, we’ll discuss three of the hallmarks therein to help you more readily make those decisions. Let’s get started:


Easy Preparation


Easy preparation can help you avoid needing to think too much about how to craft your finger food or how to present it. For instance, creating egg rolls in air fryer from Yellow Bliss Road couldn’t be easier and couldn’t offer you a more delectable result, without forcing you to spend hours attending to your oven to get it right. This way, you can prepare as large or small of a spread as you want to, without feeling that you have to spend an entire day paying for the privilege.


A Lack Of Mess


A lack of mess is often tremendously worthwhile to prioritize in finger foods, because not only does it prevent you from getting too many crumbs and sauces everywhere, but it aids with clean-up, too. After all, finger foods require no cutlery, so why need to battle with the foot when trying to eat it using our hands?


This is why rolls, wraps, singular dippable items and those with limited chance of stretching cheese, leaving sauce stains, or flaking everywhere are important. Bhajis, slices of homemade pizza, and even pre-portioned sandwiches can work wonders here.


Mix & Matching


Of course, finger foods are often used for fun or at least convenience, and so it can be nice to have an array or orbiting dips and stackable additions to help each bite feel flavorful and varied. This might include crafting your own hummus dip, or perhaps placing slices of cheese alongside your cracker spread with spreadable cheese to bind it. In this way, you can make something quite creative of finger food, without thinking that your effort is ‘lesser’ for being simple and easier to enjoy. Even something as simple as celery, cucumber or carrot sticks go down a treat when matched with a wonderful dip of your own making.


With this advice, we hope you can creatively think about finger food and perhaps make some yourself soon.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
