Maggie explained that they have a hard time keeping a stash of good snacks around for guests. So they instituted a cheese plate jar. It's filled with nuts, chocolate, and other goodies that pair nicely with one good cheese, or even stand on their own as nibbles for company. It's sealed up and only brought out for guests and spontaneous parties.
Read all about the snacks she suggests over at her blog, Might Girl. There are some super ideas in the comments, too.

Do you keep a cheese plate jar? We are about to start one; it will be a good roundup for all the tempting little treats and snacks we still have from the holidays. We'll pack them away for company instead of eating them all ourselves!
