Later this week I will be hosting a game night for 16 women. We have drinks and appies, play for a while and then take a break for more refreshments and nibbles.
Some folks don't eat before they arrive and others will have dinner beforehand.
Here are my thoughts at the moment, which I need to pare down or swap out. Struggling a bit so I could use some wise input.
Vichyssoise or Gazpacho "shooters"
Mini-Crabcakes with arugula and a chipotle mayo drizzle
Served in Spoons (options):
Shrimp n grits
Mexican shrimp cocktail
Shrimp w coconut ginger lemongrass
Pureed parsnip and sauteed scallop
Layered blk bean with mascarpone and peach salsa
Hot cheesy dip
Smoky chipotle "pimento-like" cheese
Feta and peppperoncini
Smokie sausages wrapped in bacon with brown sugar OR Smokies In a bourbon ketchup type sauce
Zucchini and goat cheese mini-tarts
Feta olive etc kabobs
Buffalo chicken pastry or phyllo cups
Cheese plate or charcuterie plate
Dessert: 2 out of 3
Homemade "kit kat" bars (Michel recipe)
Flan made with cream cheese and ricotta
Suggestions for a pared down and more balanced selection appreciated. Thanks!
