Some pineapples that you can cut up when you get there.
Or a watermelon is good too.
Edit .. I like bread with sugar on it. I am easily entertained.

my fav is ;
Feta with garlic, tomatoe and, basil already in there...
capers to taste,
chopped olives.. your favorite kind, (I prefer the jar to the canned, I don't like the can taste) jars are easier to store unused portions.
Just enough extra Virgin Olive oil to bind.
crumble feta if not already crumbled, add other ingredients combining after each. I like to serve them on Ritz vegetable crackers.
Aside from Feta.....
my favorite, by far, IS Chocolate!
Chocolate is the bomb!

Oh yes. What's more being Europe they even had beer. Ok, so not the 'summer sausage' king but good ood good.
Presuming that things like Salami are included in the summer sausage thing then don't forget Chorizo.
The Waverly Wafer thing I'm not so sure of but we like Carr's Water Crackers. Wonderful for cheese, pate, gerkhin etc.
Sorry about the baked figs, that was a cooked thing and outside the thread but but but......
Ref Creamed Cheese.....my aversion is with the packaged stuff like Philadelphia. There are some Italian cream cheeses that are pretty good indeed our local delicatessan does a red pimento stuffed with a creamy cheese and drizzled over with olive oil that I can eat by the truck load.
Another one is take a Jabanero (sp ?) or a Jalapeno , remove the seeds and stuff with sour cream. Taken in small doses however. Overdo it and you will
have one sizzled ring piece the next day.

your choice of figs, salty ham and gorgonzola shows you are a wombat w/ exquisite taste.

I have this horrible feeling I may regret asking those questions.
