Food for Book Club

So I’m hosting a book club next week. The book club host not only provides a semi-comfortable place for people to sit, but treats as well. We have lots of older ladies, some young, some health freaks, some not. Originally I was thinking about having hot fudge sundaes with warm brownies, but ummm I know at least one book club member that wouldn’t eat at all if I served that. So maybe just finger foods? I can’t guarantee I’ll feel great so I don’t want to plan some big, complicated spread. Simple but well-rounded, is that possible?

Pasta Salad in a cup?


Marinated Caprese Salad

Lemon Pudding Cake

Layered jello with carrots in it? Just kidding. Maybe veggie tray, crackers and cheese with a cake? I think I’m liking the lemon pudding cake… but what to go with it? Ideas! Throw them at me!

By the way we are reading “The Goose Girl” by Shannon Hale. I’ll do a review on it next week.



  1. Eclair Cake…super easy and it has chocolate!
    2 (3.5 oz) pkgs of instant vanilla pudding mix
    1 (8 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
    3 cups milk
    1 (16 oz) pkg graham cracker squares
    1 (16 oz) container prepared chocolate frosting
    In med bowl blend pudding mix, whipped topping and milk together. Arrange a single layer of graham cracker squares in the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Evenly spread half the pudding mixture over the crackers. Top this with another layer of graham cracker squares and the remaining pudding mixture. Top with final layer of graham crackers. Spread the frosting over the whole cake up to the edges of the pan. Cover and chill at least 4 hrs before serving. Hint: The frosting spreads easier is the cake is covered and chilled for about 30 min before spreading.
