Election Night Party



Here is the sample ballot for our 2008 Election Party:

Do you Prefer:

~Red Wine
~White Wine

Do you Prefer:

~Milk Chocolate
~Dark Chocolate

Do you Prefer:

~Chunky or
~Creamy?

My answers were: red wine, dark chocolate, and creamy (peanut butter).

We had a nice election night party last night with friends. We had some good discussions on the economy, education, and social issues. It was nice to have a crowd that didn't shout or get angry if you didn't agree with their views. The invitees all respected one another's choices in political parties and candidates, though they differed somewhat.

My own house is a 2 party house, but we all come together when it is about food.

I did "heavy hors d'oevres". What the hell does that mean?
That means too much vodka and too much wine will be consumed along with too much food, as usual.

Here are some pics of the food..........recipes will come tomorrow.

What was in the crock with the endive? It looks really good. Also, I see mini pickles. My favorite.
Are those mini quiche with the brocoli? And whats hiding in your cute little mini Staub? I'm a white, dark, and chunky kind of girl, so what does it mean???? Actually, I do like a good Pinot Nior too!;)

I'm red wine, milk chocolate and creamy peanut butter. I'm very intrigued by the dip with the endive-that looks good-I love endive.

White, dark, creamy. :)

That spread you put on looks sooooo delicious! I love using endive with appetizers. I usually serve it with a scoop of tuna or chicken, but that baked artichoke dip looks scrumptious! and I'm going to be trying your curried chicken salad very soon! Thanks for the recipe!
