Anyway, back to the party. This time I decided I wanted to make things that I had never made before. No Puke Dip or Fabulous Meatballs this time. I went with a "Create Your Own Canape" idea. I had seen a graphic in a New York Times article showing the many possibilities for Canape creation and it got me to thinking. Why not let my guests play with their food?
|Signage! How cool is that?|
For the bases, I purchased an assortment of crackers, mini-toasts, toasted french bread, and was given some hearty bread made by some Bosnian friends of my sister.
|Those Wasa Crisps look like you could build a house with them. Sturdy!|
|Mmmmmmm, goodness at the end of a knife.|
|Thyme, Dill, Capers & Spicy Pomegranate Sauce|
|Dry-Roasted Walnuts, Black Olives, Parmesan & Maple Roasted Apples|
|The Assembly Line Party!|
Oh! I almost forgot. At the last moment I came up with a cocktail for the party. I was just going to retread The Poisoned Apple since very few people got to sample it at the Halloween Party (thanks snow!) But it really didn't fit the theme of the party. So with a little browsing around (thank you interwebs) I came up with this.
|Crappy art, but I had time constraints!|
Apparently, my New Year's Resolution is to be sued by one or more parties for various incursions. What's your New Year's Resolution???
