Well, either vegetarian or or not. I do have, on hand, 44 ounces of goat
cheese, a large container of greek yogurt, and 2 or 3 packages of cream
cheese. It should be something either that can be kept warm in a crock
pot, or can be served cold or room temp.
Something that requires minimal additional purchases. I don't know how to
make couscous....is it easy?
As for rice, well, I'm afraid to provide a starch; 2 years ago, everybody
brought bread, and that was a disaster. Unless it's something more than
I do have a small box of couscous on hand.
