Help with *Fun* Xmas eve menu for a mixed group of 4 kids, 6 adults, 2 vegetarian

Lotus7 | Dec 6, 2010 07:00 PM

Hi there,

I could use some help developing a fun menu - i'm thinking heavy finger foods that will fill everyone up -the trick is there will be 4 kids under age of 6 (it's my son's birthday and happens to be christmas eve), and 6 adults--2 of whom are vegetarian. We do not need to eat traditional Christmas eve fare, but rather I want everyone to LOVE the food, and have fun eating it.

here's what i have (i know it seems disjointed)
-Shrimp Cocktail or a crab ceviche?
-Truffled Deviled Eggs
-Pizza: white 4 cheese pizza
-Spicy Pizza-eggplant, zucchini, onion, red pepper, fontina (for my dad who prefers this type)
-Mini Grilled Cheeses (lots of good cheese and butter)
-Baby Lamb chops
-Salad
-Pigs in Blanket
-Birthday Cake

Thoughts? ideas? i am feeling a bit overexcited and lost at the same time : )

Want to stay up to date with this post?
