We're having about 30 people over to an early-evening housewarming party next weekend, and our total budget is 200 bucks. Ideally, I'd like to have an assortment of finger foods/appetizers, a couple salads/cold dishes, perhaps a quiche, another main-type dish, and assorted desserts. Also, it's going to be vegetarian. Priorities are that there be a variety or tastes, textures, temps etc -- and that things be easily taken and eaten (i.e. lots of finger food). Here's what I've been thinking:
Baked Brie (either with apricot and caramelized onion or with raspberry preserves)
Spinach and Feta turnovers
Artichoke spread and Tomato confit on crostini
Asian slaw or asian noodles (which?)
spinach, pear and gorgonzola salad
Quiche (broccoli? asparagus goat cheese?) or mini quiches?
sand dollars or other cookie
double chocolate cookies
Ok -- I'd love any suggestions/critiques you have!
