If you are like me, you love spreading the word about Firefly and Serenity by hosting Shindigs ( parties where you have friends over to watch Firefly). When I do a shindig I like to have themed snacks. Perhaps some strawberries, asisan noodles, fresh bao, and don't even ask about my attempt to make mudder's milk;-) Let's share some shindig recipes!Here's a a recipe for "Fruity Oaty Bars" from Serenity:Fruity Oaty Bars ¼ cup honey 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) margarine or butter 3 tablespoons granulated sugar ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon One 6-ounce package diced dried mixed fruit (about 1-1/3 cups) 1-1/2 cups crispy rice cereal 1 cup Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked) 1. In medium saucepan, heat honey, margarine, sugar and cinnamon over medium-low heat until margarine is melted, stirring frequently. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in dried fruit, rice cereal and oats until evenly coated. 2. Press mixture evenly onto bottom of ungreased 8-inch square baking pan. Cool completely. Cut into bars. Store tightly covered in refrigerator.

I don't have a specific recipe to add, but when my friends and I had a shindig, we did make bao. I must admit that we cheated because we bought the pre-made frozen kind and just steamed them on the stove. Oh, how about making Shepard's Pie? Something that has a lot of fresh rosemary? Or even something that uses a lot of apples?
