We're having a few guests over for NYE, so we're going to spend some time doing what we love: cooking!
I think when it comes to food, we both have our own styles in the kitchen. After some discussion, we agreed that he will do the savory and I will do the sweet. (Let's face it, we both have rather big egos in doing what we do, so the best bet is to each focus on our strengths.)
I decided a little theme to help the direction along. Hey, poker and James Bond has been big this year, so I totally ripped the idea of the internet and created the above invite. Along with 007-related beverages, a classic Bond movie playing in the movie room, we are going to do the following finger foods so everyone can mingle, chill and hang out rather than doing a sit-down 4 course dinner. Although, I can't wait to get rid of my old leather couch so I can totally have a dining table out for dinner parties... (Yep, I'm definitely getting old...)
Anyway, the menu:
- Pineapple Jerk Chicken
- Sauteed Shrimp w/ Chimichurri Sauce
- Ravioli w/ Tomato-Basil Sauce
- Roast Beef Tea Sandwiches
- Roasted Red Pepper Fondue Dipper Trio w/ Garlic Herbed Pommes Frites,
Onion Rings and Mozzarella Sticks
- New England Cod Chowder
- Tabouli Salad
- Truffles Trio
- Fresh Fruit Tartlets
Happy New Year all!
