I'm having a small birthday dinner party for six for a friend on Thursday evening. Since it's a weeknight I'm keeping the dinner fairly simple. I'm grilling marinated tuna steaks and serving it with the Epicurious Farmers' Market Salad with Spiced Goat Cheese Rounds. These are pretty tried and true recipes for me with enough do ahead components that will come together fairly easily on Thursday. I've already decided to get these great Tartufo's for dessert and perhaps serve some cookies or petits fours with it. But I don't have any idea of what to serve with drinks while I'm doing the cooking.
I'm going to serve wine, cava or gin and tonics and maybe gimlets to those who want before. Any ideas of easy to pull together hors-d'ouevres that I can serve with it? I don't want anything too heavy before the meal but it does need something with it.
Thanks for the help!
