(This would be, by the way, the reason I've not been blogging much this week. I had to get my house ready and make all the food for these ladies. Plus, it was my first time hosting so I had to put my best face forward.)
On the menu:
- Vegetables with hummus
- Whole grain chips with spinach dip
- Ham and cheese rolls
- Chicken satay with a spicy peanut dip and BBQ sauce
- Spinach salad with roasted garlic vinaigrette and spicy pecans
- Crostata with mushrooms, bacon, and fontina
- Whiskey Sours
The theme was a cocktail party so I tried to do lots of little things that you might find at a party, only punched up a bit. Almost everything got eaten and we all had such a fun time. I wish I had taken pictures of all the food but it got eaten too fast!
The biggest hit was the crostata. I've never made one before and now I'm hooked on them. It was so, so easy and extremely yummy. You really can't go wrong when mushrooms, bacon, and cheese are involved. And I'm not a homemade crust maker but this was so easy and turned out great. You will not be disappointed should you decide to try it!
