make the season even merrier.
Keep such staples as celery, olives, string cheese, pickles and pretzels on hand to
assemble a quick snack for seasonal visitors. Santa may find them a lot more satisfying than milk
Another appetizing idea is to have plenty of your favorite meats on hand, such as Old
Wisconsin deli beef or pepperoni sticks; black pepper pate, braunschweiger and summer sausage.
These tasty meats keep well and can be served with cheese to make appetizing trays or
Beef sticks can be served with cheese and bagels on a tray or arranged with cheddar or
port wine cheeseballs. Or you can cut wedges of hot pepper Monterey Jack and Colby Longhorn
cheeses alternated with bite-size beef sticks.

honey mustard. Add a few olives, celery sticks and baby carrots and you're all set for
quick-to-prepare seasonal snacking.
