Avocado & Grapefruit TRISCUIT - Drizzed with honey, these cracker bites make a perfect party appetizer| platingsandpairings.comA few weeks ago, I shared with you these Grapefruit & Avocado Fish Tacos. It wasn’t my plan to share the recipe, but once they were all assembled, the colors were just too pretty not to photograph, and they were delicious too – So, on the blog they went! I’m seriously contemplating decorating our new house with these colors – Grapefruit pink and avocado green – They just make me happy ? Wait… Isn’t that what they did in the seventies?

We’re still making minor adjustments in our new place every week or so, once you learn what works and what doesn’t – Like, the shoes should go in this closet, we need a mirror here, the spices would work better closer to the stove, etc. etc. etc. – But we’re definitely getting settled in, and ready to start hosting some housewarming get togethers. We just need to find the time to do it! Our chedule for the spring and summer is gearing up to be pretty crazy – We’ll be travelling a lot – A cruise to the Caribbean, beach weekends, out of town weddings, Rick’s high school reunion… So, I’m thinking that it’ll need to be a weeknight event, after work – Which calls for appetizers which are easy to throw together in about 30 minutes or so, and a couple chilled bottles of wine.

That’s where the idea for these Grapefruit & Avocado TRISCUIT came into play. I wanted to serve something pretty and unique, yet still simple and quick to prepare. It just takes 4 ingredients to make these beauties: Grapefruit, avocado, TRISCUIT crackers and a drizzle of local honey on top for that extra special touch.

Have you seen the fun commercials for TRISCUIT showing all of the unique ways to top them? My particular favorite is the one that features Portland’s own Olympia Provisions – Their meats are amazing! I figured, why not jump on the bandwagon and dress up a TRISCUIT too? They’re perfect topping with all kinds of ingredients – Sweet, savory, grilled, creamy… Plus, I spotted all kinds of unique varieties at the Fred Meyer in our new neighborhood – Sriracha, Smoked Gouda, Mediterranean Olive. I wanted to grab them all!

Fred Meyer has become my go-to store as of late. It seems like I’m needing random things on every trip out lately – More hangers, a silverware organizer, rubber mats for under the sink – I like that I can get both our groceries and all these other random things in just one trip. Can I also say that I’m ready to be done shopping for random things? I’m ready to get back to shopping for fun things – Like clothes, and shoes, and wine glasses… (Find a location near you here)

Someday soon I hope! But for now, we’ll relish in enjoying our hew house and welcoming friends with fun bites like these. Do you have a favorite, easy to prepare appetizer that you like to serve in a pinch?
