Jo's Birthday Finger Food Party

D and I put on a finger food picnic for Jo's birthday that we held chez moi because of the drizzly weather. Finger food is the best. Anything in miniature form tastes a thousand times better. Fact. I made the savoury, D made the sweet and we went completely overboard - but this is why I love the girls because most of it was polished off in a blink. Along with pitchers of cocktails and Melrose Place, season one, disc two, we couldn't ask for a better way to celebrate.

There was...

Vietnamese rice paper rolls

Scottish oatcakes (from Borough Markets) filled with goat's cheese, caramalised onions and chives

Mini mushroom quiches (completely rolly polly)

Roast vegetable frittata

Of course, ribbon sandwiches. Three types: egg salad; cucumber with chive marscapone; roast chicken with cream cheese, almonds and baby spinach

Rocky road and delicious caramel slice

Strawberry and almond tarts and incredibly delicious chocolate tarts based on a Jamie Oliver recipe
And of course...

Happy Birthday cupcakes with candles!

This all looks SO amazing! What a great time you must have had. I miss girls' nights like that... Haven't had one in SOOOOOO long.
