If I want to see a self aggrandizing freak show, I'll go to the circus.

Goodness, Margi. While I usually follow the awards, I didn't plan nor have I ever been to an Oscar get-together, but I was looking forward to the posts of others. Sorry we in the States for the most part seem to have been wet blankets this time. Hope Kayelle's party was and that your party will be smashing.

No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

Didn't have one or attend one this year. Went w/ cheap champagne (instead of Moet - The Governors' Ball official drink), popcorn & pizza.

In years past - smoked salmon, cream cheese & dill pizzas, Moet, crab cake sliders w/ lime mayonnaise, gazpacho shooters, crab legs w/ different dipping sauces, Crab & avocado salad in Verrines, etc., etc. Would like to find some chocolate Oscars.

Two I had/have in mind to try...

Mini French Onion Soup (French Onion soup w/ a twist). Beef broth served in small bowls or ramekins with caramelized onions over puff pastry for dipping into the broth.)

Chicken Caesar Salad wedges served in endive or romaine lettuce.

We watched the Oscars but didn't plan anything around it. We had burgers and fries from In-N-Out. I wasn't in the mood for cooking anything.
