New Year's Eve Buffet Supper

Happy New Year!

I put together a super easy NYE buffet last night for friends.  The cheese fondue didn't turn out exactly right (not hot enough maybe? The cheese was too gooey), but still tasted okay, and everything else seemed to turn out fine.  Here are some snapshots:

Chopped Holiday Salad
recipe from bhg.com here

smoked salmon with some usual accompaniments

shrimp cocktail courtesy Whole Foods (moved to my own platter and bowl)

baguette slices baked with an olive oil drizzle, then topped with goat cheese and orange marmalade

I also served up small crab cakes from Whole Foods (just fry a few minutes on each side) and a great roasted corn and crab dip (recipe here) with crackers, and a Whole Foods tart.  Pretty stress free.

I wish everyone a wonderful 2013!
