Snacks for a get-together

 I'm hosting a Thirty-One party tomorrow night.  It doesn't start until 7:30 so I won't have to serve a big meal.  And there will be about 8-10 women here.

I'm thinking I need a few light snacks as it will be after dinner so nothing to heavy.

What would you serve?

 I'm thinking a veggie platter, maybe a fruit salad, taco dip and a dessert.  Oh, and of course wine!

Ingredients

Directions 1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray. 2. In medium bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in almonds. Roll dough into 12 balls. Place in muffin cups. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. 3. Using end of wooden spoon, carefully press into center of each baked cookie to make indentation. Bake 3 to 5 minutes longer or until set. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Remove cookie cups from pan. 4. Spoon about 2 tablespoons yogurt into each cookie cup. Top with fresh fruit. Sprinkle toasted almonds on top of the fruit for a crunchy treat. Not feeling tropical? Try topping with fresh berries and a few mint sprigs.

I would offer a couple desserts (since its later), some wine or coffee, and a "spa water" - lemon or cucumber in it. That would make me happy! Plus, its after dinner so they probably wont be hungry for actual food.

 It's like a Tupperware party but they sell bags, totes, purses, etc.

 Very true!  Maybe I'll just stick with desserts and a munchie or two.  And the spa water is a great idea.
