This week, on Thursday, was our work lobby-wide potluck. We had quite the spread. Our director brought an entire smoked Cajun turkey (best thing at the potluck!) AND a ham!
I made Antipasto Skewers, inspired by a Pinterest find.
With that said, it was GOOD food on a stick. I think I made some pretty decent selections.
Green and kalamata olives, bocconcino (fresh baby mozzarella balls), grape tomatoes, pepperoni, salami, and cooked tortellini pasta. I prepared the skewers the evening before the potluck, and brushed everything with peppered olive oil to keep the ingredients moist. I think the skewers turned out rather tasty! These would be great at a cocktail party or a wine tasting event. These just might be my new signature potluck dish.
We never quite figured out who brought this little gem to the potluck:
Five Star SexiMexy and Crunchy-C were impressed by the fine silk linens laid out in preparation for our potluck. And by fine silk linens, I mean patient bed sheets. …Womp.
Then, after work, Five Star SexiMexy and I went out for Happy Hour at Sava’s.
For round one, we both had a Paris Is Burning cocktail (me drinking above), which was good, featuring:
“Juniper berries, Creme de violet, Egg White, lemon, lemoncello, Aperol, B&B, Serrano pepper.”
Round two featured, on the left below: “Buckey Done Gun: House-made horchata, Curry Brandy, Sea Salt, Orange Zest Ground Mango, Cilantro,” of which we were not fans, and my drink, on the right, the “Churango: Pisco, melon liqueur, mint, house-made sour, cucumber orange blossom water,” which I did like.
After our potluck feast, we thought dinner would be unnecessary, but eventually we became hungry and split a Bahn Mi at the bar, which was wonderful! I would definitely order one of these again.
Hooray for the end of work and the beginning of the holidays! Tomorrow I’ll tell you about my final work day and work holiday party.
