Holiday Party Menu

We had our 3rd annual holiday party/open house last night. I enjoy throwing this so much! I always overcook, and several people bring food with them, too. Somehow, nearly all of it gets eaten. This year's menu:

  • Cider Baked Ham with Mini-Croissants
  • Shrimp Cocktail (thanks Stacie)
  • Baked Reuben Dip with Rye Bread for dipping
  • Buffalo Chicken Dip with Blue Corn Chips
  • Cowboy Caviar with Tortilla Scoops
  • Hummus with Pita Chips(thanks Becky)
  • Taco Dip (thanks Caroline)
  • Mini Meatballs and Cocktail Franks in Homemade BBQ Sauce (thanks Becky)
  • Biscuit-wrapped Mini Franks (thanks Angela)
  • Fresh Pico De Gallo, Guacamole and Blue Corn Chips (thanks Angela)
  • Pickled Eggs (thanks Kate)
  • Veggie Tray
  • Chocolate Raspberry Yule Log (thanks Jon's parents)
  • Trifle (thanks Karen)
  • Assorted Cookies (thanks Kate and Becky)
  • Cream Puffs
  • Punch in a Pinch (and we made up a new spiked recipe during the party that is oh-so-good)
  • Wine and Beer

Wow that was a lot of food. Amazingly, there are nearly no leftovers. I'd say we had 25-30 guests throughout the evening. It's great to see everyone, even though I always feel like I don't get to visit with everyone individually as much as I would like!
