Bad photos, good food

Uncategorized | January 2, 2012 | By

There is nothing I like better than making little bits and pieces of party food.  I am not a great party giver, something to do with living out in the country and the general state of tension it leaves me in!!!

However, this year for New Year’s Day we had a little family party  and I spent the morning cutting up little squares of rye bread with pate, cheese or prawn toppings, making bruscetta, and filling bowls full of crisps.  Add to that a Lemon Tart (not home made) and some Christmas cake and we had an instant party.

The photos were taken from my new Flip video camera so the quality is not as good as my DSLR but it is very handy.  I also didn’t get to the table before the hungry visitors, so the paltes are a little dimished, but I am sure you get the general idea.

Here is my plate, gherkins and chilli jams were served separately as some guests like their food very plain.   I forgot to mention the sausage rolls, my grandson loves them so I made some specially for him.

I hope you all enjoyed your parties and are ready for another year of cooking, baking and sharing your passion for food.

You did better than us. I gave up before midnight. I was too shattered after Cooper's party and couldn't be bothered eating any more after dinner. How sad is that?

This type of party food is great. I find giving parties quite stressful so I love just going to other people's and I would be very happy to be served this type of food.

My Christmas food photo's are all on my iphone cause I forgot to take my camera so I can empathise with you, although the photos still look mighty good to me, as does the spread!

I have to admit that if we're giving a party I buy the nibbles. If it's dinner, I always cook. But otherwise I find it too stressful and I spend the entire party in the kitchen!

that looks like a real spread! I like finger food too, it's good because everyone can pick up a little of this and a little of that to try!

Happy New Year! The best food generally doesn't get photographed properly as it gets snapped up too quickly 🙂

Happy New Year to you! I love seeing photos of food and reading the story behind it and i bet your party food got demolished so I am not surprised there wasn't much left to photograph!
