I'm invited to a girls night at a friends house on thursday. We're supposed to bring our favorite appetizer or dessert and bring the recipe printed out for everyone if they want it. Like a recipe exchange, but more of a ladies night out type of thing. I cannot think of anything to make. I need help. I used to cook all the time until I started scrapbooking, now I have no idea in the cooking dept.

What about some kind of mixture with cream cheese, spread on a flour totilla shell, then rolled up and sliced. Fresh vegies diced really small, deli sliced ham anything like that would be good and easy. :)
