Holiday Party 2007

30-Dec-2007
 
 
 
 
 
Friday night I held my annual holiday party.  It was a ton of fun, as it always is!  And I say this not because of anything that I do but because my friends are all so good at mixing and mingling that everyone who comes, whether they know anyone else or not, is included in assorted conversations and often ends up making new friends that night.
 
Over the last few years it seems my party has become a bit predictable and so this year I eliminated several of the tried and true dishes that I normally make and filled in with several new items.  All of the new items were very good and the group loved them so they will appear on future menus, I’m sure!  Here’s the menu with links or information about the recipes.   
 
 
The "Old Items" on the menu included: 

The "New Items" on the menu included: 

And, I rounded it all out with:

    • Cheese Platter
    • Pickled Vegetable Assortment
    • Green Tea Wasabi Peanuts
    • Truffles
    • Cookies (check out the last few blog entries)
    • Carmelcorn

And, of course, there was plenty of sparkling wine, wine and sparkling water to round it all out.
