eat your heart out

I never miss an opportunity to feed peope.

So when I spoke to my aunt a few weeks ago, I offered myself up as caterer extroardinaire for her annual Christmas party. A woman with three children and very little time on her hands, she jumped at the offer without hesitation.

I festively planned a menu for approximately 30 people, and came up with this spread...

HORS D'OEUVRES:
Chicken masala skewers
Turkey meatballs with rosemary and pine nuts
Baked brie with wild cranberry and walnuts, served with toasted fruit and nut bread
Red tortilla chips and fresh mango salsa
Smoked salmon and goat cheese blinis
Quesidillas and sundried tomato pest
Vegetables and fresh tzaziki
Tomatoes and bococcini on sourdough
Gourmet trail mix with toasted pecans, raisins and cranberries

DESSERTS:
Fruit platter
Assortment of chocolates
Mini pecan tarts
Mini lemon tarts
Mini apple tarts

The verdict? Delicious.
