This Week's Question

I love to entertain small and large groups. My question is: do you always have to offer an appetizer with the cocktail hour?

From Karen R. Rife - North Carolina

I think it's nice to serve a little something so people don't get "toasted" during the cocktail hour. But it doesn't have to be anything complicated - I usually serve something simple like salted cashews, olives, or good potato chips.
