Dinner by the Bite

We’re having a New Year’s Eve party. The point of this is to welcome in 2008 in our own way, big, since 2007 was fairly horrible for us. Instead of a sit-down dinner party, we’re having "Dinner by the Bite." (Think tapas.)

We’re asking friends to bring bubbly, appetizers, or both, or none. It’s all good.

Here’s the menu of what we’re providing, outside of a whole lot of wine and spirits:

Swedish pancakes stuffed with pears and havarti cheese
Herbed goat cheese balls
Chicken gouda on rye squares
Mini cheese quiches
Spicy bbq meatballs
Baked mozzarella sticks

Twinkie Tiramisu
Traditional panna cotta with champagne granita (in martini glasses) or just raspberries and honey balsamic sauce – we’ll see on that one
Champagne sorbet with raspberries
Bittersweet chocolate mousse in tea cups
Chocolate truffles
Chocolate dipped pillows

Also, just sitting around will be fudge, a macaroon Christmas tree, churros, chocolate chip cookies, violet sugar cookies, and a candy cane cheeseball.

Right. Kevin is making the real food. I’m making the desserts. Notice that I’m getting carried away with my love of pastry. Of course, I know several appetizers are arriving with guests.

I’ll post photos of all the food that actually works. In the meantime, we’re wishing everyone a fantastic 2008!

    this sounds like a great meal, not to mention fun. we’re doing a very small dinner. our menu is a Tuscan white bean vegetable soup, braised short ribs on a bed of sweet potato/parsnip puree, and pumpkin bread pudding for dessert. I’m hoping it turns out well since I haven’t made two of the three recipes before. I suppose I should have back-ups?

    OMG! That sounds so good. It’s a good thing I don’t know where you live!
    Happy 2008 to you!
