Holiday Appetizer Party

My parents started having a holiday open house party for the neighbors when my sister and I were really young.  As we grew up, the party evolved from just cookies to appetizers as well.  I still come home to my parents house every Christmas, so the holiday party has become a great way for me to try out some appetizer recipes and catch up with all the neighbors.  I might even love cooking all day even more than I love the party itself!  

I had a blast making these appetizers, and definitely loved using my dad’s Nikon D60 to take pictures.  If he’s not careful, it might just happen to go to Thailand with me!

Here’s what we had:

Crudites with Herb Dip

Stuffed Mushrooms
Crostini with Fig Marmalade and Goat Cheese
Bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with almonds
Red curry shrimp with basil leaves

Tofu-Mushroom Spring Rolls with Black Tea Mango Chutney
Deviled Eggs

Assorted Cookies

It was a wonderful party! I’ll be posting some of the recipes soon.
