Oh What a Night

Last Saturday night was our good friends, Chris and Lindsay's, couples wedding shower. Jim and I along with a few other people were the hosts of the party. Of course I took this as an opportunity to cook for everybody :) Ashley and Jason hosted the party at their house as well as decorated, and Jim was in charge of the drinks. I have to say we pulled off a pretty damn fun party!!! Both of their families were in attendance as well as most of our friends. I didn't get any pictures of the porch, but we had lined their back yard with tiki torches.

The cute couple

I stuck with food that people could easily eat as well as food that would be okay if we left it out.
I made...
  • herb cream cheese topped with dill cucumbers on a crostini
  • sauteed mushrooms (with red wine and thyme) and goat cheese on a crostini
  • pepperchini and feta dip- with crackers and pita chips
  • Chiptole Honey chicken meat balls
  • Puff pastry filled with sweetened cream cheese and fruit
  • Smore's cookies

I was happy with everything that I made, and I was happy that I made the food in time and had it transported over to the party house and on the table by party time!
