Game night menu help please

twodales2 | Jan 8, 201811:26 PM

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"

Beef Yakitori

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

Dips/Spreads: options
Layered blk bean with mascarpone and peach salsa
Hot cheesy dip
Smoky chipotle "pimento-like" cheese
Feta and peppperoncini
Pesto cheesecake

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!
