For a full star-gazing menu, here are some really cool zodiac-inspired ideas: http://www.rachaelraymag...

Cloudy skies aren't what one hopes for when stargazing, but meringue cookies have a celestial, ethereal quality to them. http://www.food52.com/recipe...

Half inch squares of medium rare beef (rib eye or prime rib is nice), same size of Brie or Camembert, and same size piece of pitted prune. Put one of each (3 pieces) on a small skewer . Amazing how these three tastes work together.
