Holiday Party Appetizer tips

This Time of year... you can find GREAT frozen appetizers at Sam's Club!

Put on your Apron from & get ready to "cook".

I just picked up mini Beef Wellingtons, bacon wrapped Scallops, various dips, meat & cheese trays & a variety of flavors of Chicken wings.

Put them on your own trays & in your bowls.... Make it look like you slaved all day!
(Make sure to take out the garbage with all the boxes before the guests arrive.
