Husband and I are co-hosting a Labor Day gathering at our friends' house, both great cooks. The joint menu planning has been a little haphazard. Friends are making braised pork butts, hoppin' john, a corn salad, and a watermelon-goat cheese salad. I was assigned pies due to my recent pie-baking obsession, and my husband [meaning me] was signed up for appetizers. We are also grilling burgers because some guests eat kosher, also it is Labor Day and also there will be gluttons.
So I'd at least one kosher starter and my mind is blank but I am thinking maybe something with homemade ricotta. I was also thinking a grilled shrimp kebab as a second starter but could be persuaded otherwise. A third idea would be good, maybe vegan? Also I just bought some lovely looking fennel bulbs today. I am thinking finger foods, or self-serve, etc. Many thanks!
