Just One More Thing: Cheese and Date Cocktail Nibbles

It's been a busy year: you've worked hard, the holidays have been hectic, and all you want to do now is relax. Still, you may yet have more guests to feed, more family to entertain, and possibly another party or two before the year is out - and the thought of making just one more thing is enough to tip you over the edge! But I'm here to help, with a simple, quick, and very tasty little nibble that can be thrown together in no time:

Cheese and Date Cocktail Nibbles


Slice cheese into pieces roughly the length and width of your dates, and about 1/4 inch thick. Skewer a date onto a toothpick, followed by a piece of cheese. Repeat until you have as many as you need, or until you run out of cheese and dates :-)

Notes: You can certainly stuff the cheese inside the dates by slicing the dates open along one side, and even add a pecan or walnut half as well. Use your favorite cheese for these, or try a variety - a good extra sharp cheddar goes extremely well with the sticky sweetness of the dates. If you don't like dates, use another kind of dried fruit like apricots or plums.
