As I was reading an article in the most recent Gourmet, it occurred to me. I was meant to live in the 50’s, host fabulous cocktail parties – complete with a too-cute dress, apron and heels – a dirty martini in one hand and a tray of hors devours in the other…and while this sounds great to me in theory it didn’t take me too long to realize I would be forced to live without things like my iphone, laptop, blogs etc so I quickly got back to reality. But it is true, there is nothing I like more than having friends over for some cocktails and hors devours.
Here are some of the snacks I made last week:
Roasted & Marinated Heirloom Tomatoes
Eggplant Caponata with Olives & Leek Goat Cheese (amazing)
Italian Meat & Cheese Tray: Marinated fresh Mozzerella, Truffled Italian Cheese & Herb Encrusted Salami
Roasted Red Pepper & Artichoke Dip and veggies
Everything all together….
