Appetizer party

Appetizer party on Flickr by beFOODled.

I attended a delicious appetizer potluck this weekend at which the buffet table and a certain cat were the life of the party. From left to right, we had spinach dip in pumpernickel bread, marinated vegetable salad, craisin and pistachio biscotti, hot cheese and chorizo dip, skewered shrimp with a sweet chilli lime drizzle, cheeses and grapes, potato salad, skewered pork tenderloin seasoned with a sea salt, chilli and fennel seed rub, and wontons and plum sauce (not shown).

I brought the shrimp, which is a recipe from Canadian House and Home shared by my friend Bee Tee. S helped me with the cooking the night before and made the hot cheese and chorizo dip, from The Joy of Cooking and which has become Squeaky and Calimocho's signature party dish.

Oh man, that sounds AWESOME! (The party concept - not so much the shrimp, for me, although I'm sure it was very tasty.) A meal of all apps and dessert is ideal.
