Here's one for Caesar Dip that sounds really delicious. You could thin it out a bit after the party and dress a salad with it.

Just like Katie says a tease or to stimulate appetite I also like Kades idea cucumber slices .I really like the brand Alloutte? a really good spreadable cheese in many flavors to put on cucumbers.Also you could make those thin parmesan crisps forget their name at the moment but all it is is fresh grated parmesan cheese a little flour and some fresh ground pepper baked in the oven to make really thin cheese crackers.Parmesan Fricos?
Somebody here surely has a recipe and knows what Im talking about.

That's good to know. It would be baby carrots, red pepper, pepperconchinis, prosuito/mozzerella stuffed cherry peppers and seseme crackers. I got the idea from boston chef's site. A food blog I like.
but I haven't decided totally on what I'm going to do.

Absolutely blanch some of the veggies. However, I have to disagree with jp. The carrots need to be blanched a bit. It makes them easier to eat and brings out their sweetness.

I agree with Katie unless you cut carrots real small almost match stick size .I like the crunch.As far as a dip goes ranch or blue cheese dressing is really good and no extra work.

I found it. This was a thread about cold finger food for a buffet. Some may be too filling w your dinner, but it will give you some ideas.

ISO cold finger food ideas for a buffet.

Mish,the stuffed mushrooms are another great idea.Delicious but not too filling and a great lead to prime rib.

I luvvv stuffed shrooms. Give me a couple of stuffed mushrooms, smoked oysters on wheat thins, assorted cheeses, grapes, chocolate dipped figs (dark and white choc), a blind date (a date stuffed with an almond), and champagne, & there's dinner.

I knew what you meant by the frigos(?) - puddles of shredded parm on a baking sheet, bake till melted & while warm enough to handle, wrap the end around a wooden spoon to make a horn shape. They're pretty on top of a salad or (tomato) soup too.

I've been saving this dainty-sounding appy for a special occasion. It may not be too filling because they're small - like little flowers.
