Desert island feast, fab pen holder and warrior angel

- My dinner group met last Friday night at the home of some real cooks.  I was asked to bring the appetizer and then got conflicted about what to make - many online recipes and magazine appetizer recipes were poured over.  But in the end - I decided to bring what I would want with me if I were stranded on a desert island:  cheese, bread, olives and nuts.  I loved that heart shaped Brie that I found at Publix (I guess leftover from Valentine's offerings,) The other cheese is Le Roul√© herb cheese - found at Fresh Market.  It was a hit.  The heart napkins belonged to the hostess - leftover from another party.

 - More refrigerator magnets (it's been a slow Good Things period).  This pottery pen holder came from a shop in Winchester, Virginia (near where sister #1 lives.)  My fridge is full of photos of loved ones and the piper in the magnet above it advertised a Highland Games in Savannah, Georgia.  I didn't attend, but loved the image, so there it has stayed.

 - The battered warrior angel magnet came from the gift shop at Stirling Castle in Scotland.  I laughed when I got home and saw the sticker on the back:  Made in Oklahoma City.  :)

Hi Linda - your feast looks good - nothing can beat cheese and biscuits with olives and a good drink - be it wine, beer or soft ... then a good nattering can ensue .. cheers Hilary

Not only does it your contribution to the feast sound good, you present it so well!

Mmmm. Cheese, olives and good bread. I would be happy if that was dinner.
Love your magnet. And smile at where it was made. Here it is too often China making our national souvenirs.

Love that heart shaped Brie cheese also! Your Publix must be fancier than ours in Rockdale County!!
And that magnet made in OKC that you bought at Stirling Castle in Scotland, how funny!

I need that pen holder magnet. Love your choice of snacks for the party. Now I have to share a story. Our wealthy aunt came to visit my parents in the '40s and wanted to visit the legendary 10l Ranch in Ponca City, Oklahoma. There she purchased genuine Native American blankets to take back to Pennsylvania. It was a hoot when these authentic blankets were exposed as tagged, "Sears and Roebuck". LOL

Knock! Knock! Is there a fridge under there somewhere? :)

I hope you put some wine and water in your island pack! :)

I like your choices. Thinking of angels including having images of them encourages their presence!

I <3 the heart brie. I am always looking for fun, unusual edibles to bring along to Game Night. This would be a big hit with my friends... for about 10 minutes until it was all eaten up. :-)
