Whoo-Hoo!

Just got a private catering gig that may work out into something regular! Wine party for a real estate investment firm; the wine company is sending a cheese tray, and the firm asked me to 'fill in'; here's the menu -
-Salt/pepper crusted tenderloin on crusty french bread with green peppercorn mayo

-Tomato, basil, and fresh mozz skewers, marinated in EVOO and herbs

-Bruce Aidell's chicken-apple sausages on skewers with apricot/mustard dip.

-Tarragon shrimp salad in phyllo cups

-Sweet and spicy roasted pecans

-Herbed pita strips with 2 dips

-Crudite platter - of course :roll:

Can't wait to get started!

Tx, all - I'm taking a break after prepping all day -

Mudbug, the 'recipe' for the shrimp salad is really just a throw together; shrimp steamed in water/lemon/bay/peppercorns/salt, then diced; 1 container creme fraiche, some sour cream and mayo; then the herbs were fresh tarragon and chives and parsley; some fine diced celery. Sorry I can't give you quantities; some of this I just 'do'!

Tryng to find platters so I fit it all on one piece; then I can just do a drop off and won't have to stay there for the whole gig! I've got a huge basket for the crudite, with 'rustic' white bowls for the dip; more white bowls and another basket for the pita crisps; then I think my platters are large enough for everything else. Fhe roast beast I may have to camoflouge a jelly roll pan with foil, and found some palm leaves at the florist that hadn't been treated, so can lay those on the bottom.


Back to work, people! See ya later.
