Poor Man's Pate

If any of you are lucky enough to have a killer recipe for meat-loaf (or have a husband who has a killer recipe and sorry, mine won't give his up!), make one up the day before the party and refrigerate it. Before the party, slice it thin and serve with gourmet mustard and tiny gherkins. It's as good as pate, I think, and ends up being the most popular hors d'oeuvre at the party!


  1. My friend, Mimi, wanted me to include another easy party favorite:
    This is a fun and easy dessert to make. You mix the ingredients of Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix and put in in a cookie sheet. You know to make a sheet cake. Bake until done. Let it cool, then spread your favorite peanut butter on top. Then melt two big bars of Hershey Chocolate in a double boiler and spread it on top. Your guests won't be able to stop eating it. It's like a Reese's Cake.
