Gearing Up

by Sarah on November 12, 2009

I’ve been getting ready for 2 parties Saturday night that I’m making all the food for–One for my buddy Dave and one for my Daddy-O’s 66th birthday.  Shopping at 3 stores?  Check.  Sauces made yesterday.  Cupcakes today.  And candied carrots.  Yes, you heard me.  CANDIED CARROTS.

I’m making those Spicy Deviled Eggs with Candied Bacon too.  That’s 5 dozen hard boiled eggs there.  Yep five dozen.  60 eggs.  120 deviled eggs.  And I betcha a dollar that they’ll all be gone.
Here’s what else is on the menu:
Glazed Spareribs a la James Beard
“Steak Sandwiches”–Open faced steak sandwich on baguette with horseradish cream
Shrimp canape with lemon aioli and dill
Tyropita-filo triangles with spinach and cheese
Nana’s Crab Mold with crackers
Vegetables with Green Goddess
Maple Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing and Candied Carrots

Better get busy–that’s still a lot of food to prepare.  And I have to work all day tomorrow at the day job.  Yikes!  Recipes and pictures to come!
