Memorial Day Party Food

What's cooking on the Memorial Day weekend? Well, we cooked for a party at a friends house on Saturday.

The Menu:

Baby turkey and beef cheeseburgers (baby turkey burger is in the picture held together by a standard toothpick, so you can get the idea of size)
Salted almonds
Marinated Olives
Lentil salad with peppers, feta and mint

Breads: focassia w/olives and onions, w/sage and onions, and w/black pepper, truffle oil, rosemary and thyme, baguette and pita
Dips: spinach and parmesan, garlic oil with parmesan and herbs
Grilled Veggies: multi-colored bell peppers, yellow squash and zucchini, eggplant, portabella, onions, asparagus
Chicken satays with peanut sauce and cucumber relish
Spiced shrimp skewers with lime dipping sauce

And it doesn't stop there. We had cheesecake with fresh strawberries and whipped cream and a chocolate cake with a mocha filling.

Did we mention beer? Lot's of beer! (It was hot, after all!)

Have a great Memorial Day!
