New Year's Eve food
« on: December 29, 2021, 11:58:22 AM »
After a thoroughly enjoyable long Christmas weekend of food, I am doing our mid-holidays grocery shop for Round Two: NYE.  We've decided on "ultimate platter", which means cheeses, meats, cruditès with hummus, and canapès.  I'm cooking for just the two of us, so it's potentially going to be ridiculous.

My canapès will hopefully include:
  • mini smoked salmon and broccoli quiches
  • bruschetta
  • mini Welsh rarebit
  • pizza "Christmas crackers" in filo

While I am excited about the flavours I will get to nom, I'm slightly apprehensive about the amount of work it will require (obviously, I'm buying puff pastry and filo), and potentially making too much food.  Hopefully, we will have a good balance of indulgence versus fresh and light, though.

What are you guys doing?  Have I missed any super easy and tasty ideas?

Yum yum!  Hope it's all yummy!!!

Was going to make pizza, but we're both overindulged to the max, so now making a Thai curry of some sort, with salmon.  Pizza for another day!
I've never gotten food on my underpants!

It was excellent!  Mind you, my mini quiches weren't so mini (never underestimate the power of puff pastry!), and the welsh rarebit turned into an incredible beer cheese sauce for dipping.  But the food was immense (literally and figuratively).  My husband, though, has had great enjoyment laughing about the quiches.  <mutter> Didn't stop him eating three of them... <\mutter>  ;)  meanwhile, the bruschetta and the cruditès were very welcome with all the other food.  But, yeah... tasty new year's eve.

Thai curry with salmon sounds interesting.  I'd try that.  What else did you put in it?
