I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – finger food is the most fun to eat. Not only is it easy to grab, but it’s not a huge commitment. For picky eaters like me, tiny portions are much appreciated. That way, if we can’t stand it, we aren’t wasting a whole plate of food.

Appetizers are also fun because you can have a variety. Fill your plate with all sorts of goodies if it’s a party full of appetizers or food on a stick.
