Cooking for a crowd

So this weekend I cooked an appetizer reception for 80 and a intimate dinner for 12 and it went over really well. Actually J handled almost all the desserts for the appetizer receiption so he rocks. As usual. Here's the menu:


Satay chicken (on these huge skewers that made it look like a sculpture) with peanut sauce
Sundried tomato and feta mini pizzas
Roasted pepper and goat cheese mini pizzas
Strawberry mini cupcakes
Lemon mini cupcakes
Picstachio bundt cake
chocolate cookies
Brie and crackers
Chocolate cinnamon bundt cake
Strawberries and chocolate dipping sauce

Dinner (Italian without Pasta)
Mushroom ragu in puff pastry appetizer
Roasted asparagus
Risotto cakes
Polenta and grilled chicken with mushroom cream sauce
