Bacon wrapped dates stuffed with almonds were easy and can be done a day in advance. I did use the reviews recommendations and used thick bacon and baked them at 400 for 25 minutes.
Blue Cheese-Bacon Dip and I made this in the morning and just placed the ramekins in the oven 25 minutes before the party.
My good friend and neighbor, Paige, made Apple-tini's for the girls. They were delicious!
The next recipe is from Southern Living. The Guacamole-Goat Cheese Toasts with diced tomatoes and tomatillos.
Green Goddess Dipping Sauce. I was going to present them in shot glasses but opted to just tray them due to unexpected house guest over the weekend. (I loved having John's family over.)

I was so grateful for the handful of friends who would NOT leave until they finished cleaning up. It was great to wake up to clean dishes and no mess after a party!!!
Enjoy the recipes & Happy Haunting!
