Just in time for summer, this Melon Blue Cheese Appetizer! Super easy and quick, too, to put together!

We’ve been cleaning through drawers and boxes and cubbies, and spaces that I did not know I even had, and the other day brought a nice surprise.

And a flood of memories.

Living in this house for 11 years, we hosted many outdoor parties for kids and adults. We went through a season of ping pong, swimming, Corn Hole, trampolines, and badminton.

And some great dinner parties. This recipe was served at a summer party a year ago. Everyone loves cantaloupe, but have you served it with blue cheese? Mm-m-m … good!

Creative dinner party fun

This particular party, I think we had some sort of competition going on, and I vaguely remember the fun now …

It came down to 2 lively players.

A face-off, at the end of the night.

An invitation for the challenge …

“Dr. Conway, This end of the table requests a shuttle cock demo .. our 2 finest players. Us. You. …”

And the winner had a nice surprise of one year of coffee.

Which, I don’t think really happened.

But this is the kind of fun to have in your backyard, Friends.

Grab a napkin, be creative, get the group involved, and bring life to your party!

Melon Salad or appetizer

Since summer is right around the corner, the other night we had a couple over for a simple, summery meal (salad and bread), to say our last goodbyes.

With a melon on the counter, I looked around to see what I had in my kitchen.

Blue cheese and DeLallo balsamic glaze.

Perfect for a Melon Blue Cheese appetizer or salad! And, by the way, is also just as delicious on watermelon or Honey Dew!

Are you looking forward to summer entertaining?
