Christmas Gathering We were thinking of having a get together with some friends at our house to celebrate the holidays. I don't really want to do a full sit down dinner. Any suggestions on some festive foods that could be served - h'ordeurve style? Oh, and if you know of any good cocktails that are festive.

A selection of cold or room temp

cheeses, meats(spiral sliced ham?), spreads and crudities that everyone can help themselves to, also have trays in the fridge of prepped hor d'oeurvres waiting to be popped into the oven and passed around at intervals. Maybe some glaceed chestnuts too?

Aside from the usual stocked bar perhaps some mulled wine or cider, and eggnog.

This is a good query for Martha readers, I'm sure she's got some doozies...

If you have a chafing dish,

browned well, cut on the diagonal and served in a marinara sauce go over well.

It's easy to make little meatballs, cook them ahead of time, and freeze for the future. Anyway, these can be served with a variety of sauces, Asian, Italian, Norwegian. They always go over well. You can buy big bags of them already frozen to save time. They won't taste as good as homemade, but I've seen people devour them nonetheless.

A nice cheese plate with 3 to 5 big wedges of a nice variety of cheeses, decorated with grapes, persimmons, fruits of the season. Serve sliced baguettes and crackers on another plate.

Tiny sandwiches - like baby Reubens on different types of rye. Mix a creamy horseradish with chopped sauerkraut put together with pastrami and corned beef.

Deviled eggs, most people love them.

Make crostini and top them with herbed cheese or chevre, top with small pieces of spiraled beef, and thorw a few capers on top, or smoked salmon with a little fresh dill, or, or , or, you get the idea.

A good hummus or babaganoush, served with homemade pita chips and sliced red bells, jicama, carrots, cucumbers and celery, and blanched green beans.

I like to serve this one

Mini pizzas

-Boboli

-Red Peppers in the Jar

-French Feta (I buy at 22nd & Irving a huge can is $6.99)

-Fresh Basil cut into tiny strips

-EVOO

-S&P

Spread ingredients all over pizza crust. I bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 min on bare oven rack. Then I take out and cut into bite size pizzas and serve on a plate. Guests seem to love it!

It's basically a recipe from epicurious I modified!

you could do a classic cheese, and the hot oil for cooing little bites of beef/shrimp, etc. chocolate with fruit and cake for dessert.

serve some appetizers and maybe a green salad and you're done!
