Summer Cocktail Jalapeños

M-J’s Low-Carb Jalapeño Hors d’Oeuvres

♥Simple, Sumptuous and Spicy Stuffed Jalapeños
Cream Cheese is blended with finely-crushed almond crackers, chile powder and celery salt, then pressed into halved and seeded jalapeño peppers. Placed in a baking dish and baked in a 400F oven until lightly browned, these cocktail offerings can be served warm or room-temperature. Besides tasting great, stuffed piquant peppers prepared this way are low in carbohydrates and high in nutrition. ©M-J de Mesterton

For a great party, make all the hors d’oeuvres yourself, spread them on a central table, and have the host (husband) serve drinks. Put stacks of small plates at each end of the table. The hostess (wife) can fill and carry some of these plates around to guests during the party, ensuring the land-locked chatters an opportunity to eat. Wine and soft drinks are sufficient, if you’d like to keep the drink-dispensing simple. Walking about the rooms with a wine bottle to give refills on the spot is a good idea. Offer a plate of brownies or cookies.

Coat Storage

It’s not elegant to make your guests pile their coats on a bed or a sofa. Empty your own coat closet onto your bed or in another room, and your guests will have the dignified luxury of hanging their coats in a proper closet.
