A Summer Evening Party!

Recently I prepared a little selection of nibbles for an investors meeting.
I had a great time coming up with my menu!
Mini Blue Crab Cakes with Remoulade Sauce
Black Bean Hummus with Whole Wheat Pita Chips
Antipasto Skewers with Pickled Okra
Firefly Sweet Tea Peach Soup Shooters
Mini Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
Dark Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Lightly Sweetened Iced Tea

The strawberries were the favorite of the evening, everyone commented on how huge they were!
The anipasto skewers were drizzled with a Balsamic Vinegrette and had mushroom caps, roasted red peppers, fresh mozzarella, dried apricot, kalamata olive and sundried tomato with basil - YUM
I used the Magnolia Bakery in NYC recipe for the Red Velvet Cupcakes - they were oh so easy to pop into your mouth!
I also put out a bottle of Toscani Caramel Syrup for those who enjoy flavored coffee

Sorry I didn't get a picture of the Chilled Peach Soup Shooters, I just put the shooter glasses into a large rectangle dish with crushed iced water and drizzled each shooter with a honey yogurt swirl, they truly were unique, pretty and oh so trendy!

Oh wow! My Jane Austen muse. I got on my dashboard just to see if anyone on my list had posted anything new to pass some time. I have a cold and while hubs is off weeding the garden I am sitting her surfing the blogs. I think the last note I left you was many moons ago and I think it did not look as though you were blogging so I had not checked back. Want to let you know I finished Pride and Prejudice and yes I did become enamored of Mr. Darcy by the end of the book. Thanks for the push to jump in there and read it.

Oh Kitty I hope that it went well! I want the pickled okra... Love that stuff! Thanks for stopping by. Have almost stopped blogging. My business blog is still going, but having some issues to work on. As my work is copyrighted...
And busy with work right now, which is a 'good thing' :D
