Nibbles are so very nice

Early fall nights are perfect for entertaining. There's no better time to sit around the back yard to talk a lot, enjoy a breeze and eat a little.

If you can toast bread, chop tomatoes and slice sausage, a small-bites feast is a breeze. Call it "antipasti," "mezzes" or "tapas" or just plain old appetizers, this spread is the perfect way to eat throughout the evenings of late September and early October.
