    The Irish Tenors...Lawn Seating

    I'm hosting a trip for 10 adults and 4 children to see the Irish Tenors in Connecticut this weekend. I'm also in charge of hors d'oeuvres. (I volunteered for the "food detail" because it's got to be an easier job than being in charge of finding and carrying 14 folding chairs!)

    Since this event is lawn seating (no picnic tables allowed), I'd like serve picnic-style finger food. Any suggestions? Nothing messy, has to travel well and be easily served cold or at room temperature. I was even thinking about creating individual box lunches for everyone with a variety of "nibbles". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    P.S. It will NOT rain at this event as I have purchased 12 golf umbrellas as insurance. Have you ever noticed it hardly ever rains when you actually have an umbrella with you...Don't have an umbrella?...the skies will open!

    I'll cross my fingers for you that it won't rain! How about serving Tortilla Roll Ups among other things? You could even make a wrap with it instead of the smaller slices.

    I love the Irish Tenors!!! I've seen them on channel 11 (public tv) and they're great! Hope you have a great time.

    I've posted two recipes for pinwheels, wraps, or whatever. They're like an appetizer.
    Jalapeno Wraps and Beef and Onion Wraps

    If you go to "BROWSE" and look down the left-hand listing, you will come to "finger food". There are more than (I think it said ) 2500 recipes there.

    Thanks for all your help. I've downloaded all the suggested recipes to my "shopping list" and I'm heading out to the local large supermarket as well as the gourmet store to see what's in stock. Everyone of your suggestions is a prizewinner, it's just a matter of finding the right menu combinations to serve to a group of people ages 6-80 years old!

    I also plan to make some chesse straws or breadsticks. Here's another question.......

    If I want to make some mini quiches to serve at room temperature, will they become soggy after a while? If so, any tips on preventing this from happening?

    Anything else I should know about "lawn seating" eating? I do know to bring plenty of paper plates, paper towels and a sense of humor!

    Thanks again.

    Belated thanks to all who helped make my "Irish Tenor" party a truly memorable occassion. The weather was warm with a breeze, the music delightful and the food and drink a big success. I served ...

    Mirjam Dorn's Smoked Salmon Spirals,

    Bergy's Crab Florentine in 3" mini pitas

    JoAnn's Tortilla Rollups and

    Bev's Pecan Squares

    My sister brought...

    15 Shrimp Cocktails

    a Cheese Platter and

    Martha Stewart's Brownie Cupcakes.

    I brought hot dogs in a thermos for the kids along with assorted juice boxes. We had 3 types of wine in real wine glasses and imported beer on ice. I had to use a "little red wagon" to haul all the food, utensils and coolers from my car to the concert site. My overloaded wagon must've looked pretty funny compared to all the dainty wicker picnic baskets I saw entering the park!

    Once again, thanks for all you did to make a wonderful family get together even more memorable.
    P.S. I've been "invited" to another outdoor concert on September 21st. Guess who's been asked to bring the food?
