Also, red peppers make great boats: just cut them in quarters and put inside small bites of hard cheese, bacon and olives. You can cook boat shaped pastries; it’s actually very easy. All you have to do is buy frozen dough, cut the dough in rectangles, put some filling (sweet or salty) inside squeeze the short ends to make it look like a boat.
