I am finally getting around to posting this amazing meal. For Christmas Eve dinner my family enjoyed a small plates appetizer dinner. My Mom and I decided on the recipes and coordinated the plates/shooters/bowls we wanted to use.
Yes we used a lot of plates but it was fun for a special occasion.
My family does a great job at pitching in and creating meals together. I cherish the time we spend together cooking and feasting.
Caprese Salad and Stuffed Baquette
For the miniature Caprese salads we were inspired by this recipe (scroll down) but did not really use it as we have made Caprese salad many times. My husband made the salads for this meal.
We used this recipe for the stuffed baguette but did two versions, one with olives and one without (my husband does not like olives). My Mom made this recipe.
Dad’s Stuffed Mushrooms
My Dad made his famous stuffed mushrooms. They are always a hit at parties. Too bad that I don’t like mushrooms.
Baked Spinach Dip in Bread Bowl
We used this recipe for these delicious morsels. My Mom made these.
I made these Pesto Poppers. They were very easy to assemble.
Pumpkin Soup Shooters
I made these Pumpkin soup shooters. I used vegetable stock.
Mango, Carrot, and Cucumber Sticks
We knew that we wanted to use Asian spoons to add more interest to the table. I found this recipe. It was easy and tasted great!
Peanut Butter Pie Shooters and Swan Cream Puffs
My Mom and husband made the Peanut Butter Pie Shooters.
