What appetizer should I bring?
Every few weeks I get to make food for our church’s coffee hour. My co-hosts and I prepare food for the post-service gathering. Not everybody stays, but we usually have been 60 to 100 people.

But our cute as all get out cockapoo Riley kept staring me down … and he ended up with two Salami Roll Ups.
