I am hosting a housewarming party on Saturday and am trying to figure out my menu. I will be having about 15 over.
I plan on serving dinner and drinks. The menu (still fiddling with it) will be:
Homemade Beef Ragu with bow tie pasta
London broil with light soy sauce
Salad (organic field greens with homemade candied/spicy pecan and crumbled blue cheese -dressing of balsamic vinegar, white truffle oil and organic olive oil)
Some type of starch or some veggies
Variety of cheeses and crackers (I am a huge lover of the whole foods cheese selection).
I will try to make the crackers from scratch if I have the time, if not its Carr’s cracked black pepper and the rosemary/sea-salt ones from whole foods (they are sooo yummy).
Humangous Shrimp and cocktail sauce
A variety of small nibbles (smoked salmon, tiny crab cakes, samosas, sugar snap peas, etc).
Drinks will be: Sodas (diet/regular), supplies to make Italian cream sodas, wines/ports
I don’t drink and the item besides wine that was requested was grey goose vodka so I will grab a bottle of that as well.
I wonder if I’ve missed anything?
Haven’t figured out dessert may just grab a selection of things from a bakery or whole foods. No idea yet.
