Housewarming on a budget

tastytamarind | Oct 14, 2007 11:14 AM

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:

Appetizers:
Baked Brie (either with apricot and caramelized onion or with raspberry preserves)
Spinach and Feta turnovers
Artichoke spread and Tomato confit on crostini

Salads:
Asian slaw or asian noodles (which?)
spinach, pear and gorgonzola salad

Mains:
Quiche (broccoli? asparagus goat cheese?) or mini quiches?
Other main?

Desserts:
lemon bars
apple pie?
sand dollars or other cookie
double chocolate cookies
fudge?

Ok -- I'd love any suggestions/critiques you have!
