Tapas and Grinch Christmas Party

I've got lots of glasses to wash this morning. We held our annual Grinch Christmas Party last night.  
Whew!!!!  Lots of people, presents and food.     I'd talk about the presents, but hey, you're here to see what people brought to eat.  
As usual I made a few things.  Some Deviled Eggs, Prosciutto Wrapped Cantaloupe along with just plain cantaloupe and I also made some Cranberry Orange Chutney Wings. (they'll be in a separate post)
And here are the wings...

As I said, there was a lot of great food.
Some lovely smoked Salmon
A Tabouli Salad (and I didn't get to taste it)
Sweet and Sour Meatballs
Potato Salad
Squash Casserole
 A Biscuit Tree
A lovely mixed greens Salad
A cold cut tray
Fresh veggies and dip
Ravioli and Marinara Sauce (these disappeared before I could taste any)
Roasted Vegetables
Mixed Vegetables
Assorted Chicken Livers, Hearts and Gizzards
Eggplant Dip
Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos
And then there were the Desserts...
Poppy Seed Loaf
Cookies and Fudge
Orange Loaf
Assorted Bark
Cranberry Bread
Peppermint Cupcakes and a Red Velvet Cake
And I know I probably missed a couple of dishes, I usually do, but my excuse is a good one. 
It's my party and I can socialize if I want to.
So there...
Although it was a little crowded yesterday so I didn't mingle as much as I could have.
The Tree (It wasn't edible though)
and this is my view this morning, sigh.
and this...
Actually, not too much cleanup to do.   Just gotta wash the glasses and put them away.  And then I'm ready to put my feet up for the rest of the day...
