Thanksgiving Cocktail Party

I consider myself very very lucky to have both family and lifelong friends in the Atlanta area.  Both Joey and I were born and raised in Atlanta, went to college here, then settled in the area to start our family.  Therefore, we ALWAYS have more than one family function to attend on every single holiday.  I see a lot of shows and movies where people who don't live near family all gather together with friends for holidays, and while I'm not jealous per se, it would be nice to celebrate with friends, who I do consider to be like family to us. 

So why not have the best of both worlds and throw a pre or post-Thanksgiving cocktail party for your friends?  I for one am very thankful for friends, so I'd love to be able to show them how much they mean to me.  Serve fun hors d'oeuvres and festive cocktails, and celebrate friendship!

On the buffet:

Assortment of Cheese, Crackers, Fruit, and Nuts

For Dessert:

To Drink:
assortment of craft beer
assortment of wine
champagne (we're celebrating, right?)

This is a wonderful idea! However, I like your recommendations better than traditional T-Day dishes, so I might well make it into the main meal:-) said...

Just awesome, wouldn't I love to have you close by as one of my good friends so that I can go and eat your superb food creations? I think so :-)

Anyhow, have fun, by the way I love the mushroom quesadillas, will put on my to do recipe list

I was looking for some kind of veggie side other than the usual casseroles and I think I'm definitely going to make those green bean bundles!
