At my house,我们经常吃我们称之为小吃的晚餐,一顿让每个人都能享受这一点和更多的美食,snacking!这有点像奶酪板的捣碎(但奶酪较少)。acharcuterieboard (but with less meat),和一个crudit_s盘(but with more heft).I usually build a Snack Dinner around a central dip or spread,with lots of fresh vegetables.可能会涉及奶酪和/或腌肉,同样,but it all ends up being a healthy meal because,even though there may be a few indulgent items on the tray,there are still all those veggies.

这顿特别的小吃晚餐有一碗热的,creamyquesoat its heart—but not just any queso.I wanted a healthier version,one that didn't rely on processed cheese.And though I've never been the type of mom who sneaks vegetables into dishes (I'm incredibly fortunate to have kids who lovevegetables,so no need to sneak),I decided to add pureed sweet potato to queso: The orange color is right at home,the smooth texture helps to thicken the dip,and the subtle sweetness adds more dimension.还有奶酪(我不想沾到那个healthy)—Colby-Jack,它融化得很好,有点刺鼻的味道。钥匙,though,is to shred your own from a block;pre-shredded cheese is typically tossed with starchy stabilizers to keep it from clumping,and that can make for a grainy,gloppy end result.

北斗七星,I like to include some tortilla chips,当然,but I supplement with crunchy vegetables like cucumbers,甜椒,radishes,andjicama.I always build out these meals on a halfsheet pan.It's the largest platter I own,and the raised edges hold everything in nicely.(It also looks pretty great in a photo,filling an entire rectangular frame.) I might tuck in a little bowl of nuts,cherry tomatoes,pickled vegetables,or olives,然后我用农产品填满剩余的空间。It's a great meal for movie night,the big game,或者玩一晚上的纸牌游戏。因为每个人都喜欢吃零食,especially when it involves cheese dip.
