Nearly every year, I throw myself a birthday party for me and my friends. Here is problem: this year I'm trying for a small bite, mostly vegetarian classy menu. But I don't have my larder stocked with the things I wanted.
I have: canned beans, goat cheese, tons of rice, butternut squash, cucumber, three pepper, cabbage, feta, a honey dew and cantaloupe, flour, tortillas, garlic, ginger, avocado, frozen berries, booze, walnut oil, spices, wheat bread, Pomagranate juice, lemons, limes, splenda and country pork ribs.
This is the menu I came up with:
Chilled melon soup
Beet goat cheese napoleons
Black bean cakes w/ avocado and Carnitas or avocado and tomato
Crudites with dip
Devils on horseback
Pomegranate Lime Rickey
