Cocktail Party

Posted by tinako on January 28, 2011

My husband had some friends over after work and I made up a little buffet.  I put on:

  • Veggies: three colors of peppers, broccoli, carrots, celery, mushrooms
  • Fruit: pineapple, raspberries, grapes
  • Crackers: three kinds of whole-grain crackers
  • Hummus and Bean Dip for the crackers and veggies
  • Tortilla chips and Pantry Salsa and jarred salsa
  • Sushi

Later I put out desserts:

Cocoa Cake with Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Coconut-Amaretto Bundt Cake

Thanks to everyone who brought wine, and thanks to Mary Beth for bringing a box of desserts from a vegan bakery – what a treat!

My husband is the bartender, and he made a pitcher of Key West Coolers.  I was a bit worried about “melon liqueur,” but it was very good, like punch.
