That's funny because DH suggested spanikopita as well, but I make it for almost every function (catered or personal) I cook for.

Sorry, I wanted to edit that to say "Thanks Suzi, that was a really good suggestion!" but I got distracted.

Uncle Bob, you forgot one step - putting the clothespin on my nose while I handle the oysters! I can't take the smell of them and can't eat them raw, cooked OR smoked, not even in something. Don't know what it is, but mussels, oysters and clams make me gag!

You did well I have never made those but when I worked in Texas my boss insisted they were made with the other chestnuts and they were awful and I was so embarrassed as I knew they were the wrong type of chestnut the worst part is I had to serve them to a very well known person that I wont mention.

These sound wonderful, jp!

I've had the dates stuffed with chunks of blue cheese, then wrapped in bacon - heavenly! Sweet and salty, hot and cool.

Either one sounds like a good, different, fun idea to me, LP!

Qsis and JP, I really like your "date ideas". Thinking I might go that route.

Thanks everyone! If I don't use your ideas for this party, I am jotting them down for other functions. I have two showers coming up and am catering three wedding teas next spring and summer.

Keep the ideas coming, I think we can all use them!

I don't have the recpie. I lost it years ago. I think you could "wing" it. Mix butter with Spicy Brown Mustard. Spread between several layers of Phylo dough. Mix shredded Swiss Cheese and chopped thin sliced ham. Fill, roll up jelly roll style. Spread some of the mustard/butter on the outside of the log. Bake until brown and filling is hot. Cool slightly and cut into pinwheels.
