Fun Birthday Party

This week I celebrated my birthday as well as my husband’s. Because it was my first week back at work and our birthdays fell on a school night, we both decided to celebrate it this past week-end. So we had a small party on Saturday.. and of course I cooked. I wanted my food to be light so I decided to offer lots of vegetables and meats:


  • Tomato caprese in martini glasses
  • Brie cups with red pepper jelly
  • Quiche Lorraine
  • Pork tenderloin with mango, soy marinade served with bread, regular side dressings,  and mango chutney
  • Chicken teriyaki kebabs
  • Ginger and Mint Marinated Shrimps
  • Texas Caviar with various tortillas
  • Lobster cream cheeese mousse with flatbread
  • Summer berry tartlets
  • Chocolate cupcake with chocolate buttercream
  • White chocolate panna cotta

I think my guests really enjoy their food because there were hardly any left-overs. That must be a good sign;-)

I had a great time, it is so much fun to cook and visit with friends…
I hope you guys entertain too! It is so much more fun than going to a restaurant….
