gotta gig


Yesterdays cucumber soup and todays puff pastries are all going to assemble themselves at a little event that I have the pleasure of providing appetizers for.



I love when I get to cook for other people and as often as it does happen I wish it happened for every meal (I say that now, what will I do if it ever happens?) The enjoyment I get out of watching the happy and excited faces struggling to decide what to get and then simply deciding that some of each will have to do. This is a relatively small event with about 25 in attendence.



There will be other things like homemade blue chips and salsa and various other crudites and hand foods but those will be made a little closer to delivery time and in addition to these ham and cheese, there will also be a spinach version for the non-meat eaters.

I could eat a lot of those dangerous little puff babies with cold champagne. Although a reiki event probably isn't the best place to drink champange at LOL

Emily said...

Lucky women indeed - it all sounds, and looks, delicious!

I hope you don't mind but I've passed on a blog award to you. No obligations, need for acknowledgment, or strings attached - just my way of saying how much I enjoy your work.

Have a delicious weekend!

Jeanne said...

Congratulations. If the food you serve looks half as good as what shows up here on your site, you'll do great! And business grows by word of mouth -- especially businesses that rely on the mouth.

Anette said...

So round, so charming, and you know how I would eat them? Maybe not so ladylike but, to enjoy them in my weird way, I'd have to eat them 'round and 'round until there was nothing left. I know you don't mind!

Cynthia said...

Mandi said...

These look amazing!!! We had these at Aimees 18th Birthday, with various fillings, as she is a veggie, we meatless ones for her, but her friends got the ones with the salami etc etc.......YUM!!!

I havent ever seen anyone else make these - we call them pinwheels??? Whatever you call them they are sensational, so many variations and they always work!!

Michelle said...
