Christmas Dinnerish...

Since it is going to be my husband & a few friends, I figured let's not have a whole sit down meal, but rather all of the things that we like to eat & can munch on most of the late afternoon/evening. So, this is what I've come up with so far:

Assorted Cheeses- Humboldt Fog, English Cheddar, Manchego
(with fruit/membrillo paste/fig jam,marcona almonds)
***I'll add a few more my next trip to the store

Assorted Cured Meats

Marinated Artichokes

Assorted Greek Olives

Duck Pate

Crudite Platter- (figured there needed to be some veg like matter)
***I need a dip or sauce still

Beef Tenderloin Roast- Thought I'd roast it, slice thinly & serve with some small rolls/horseradish mayo or cream & arugula
***Any other suggestions?

Rack of Lamb- Cut into individual chops, served with a mint chimmichurri

Cuban Flan for Dessert

***The idea is to graze for the later part of the day, so I need things that won't be affected too greatly by sitting at room temp....

Any thoughts? Looks like I've gone kind of Spanish/Latin...
