Cooking for 200, and living to tell the tale...

I have finally recovered from last weekends school auction. For the third year, I did the food. Six parents came over last Saturday, and helped stuff tomatoes, cut baguettes, garnish, and put all the final touches on appetizers for about 200 people. The evening was a great success, with many compliments about the food. Here's what was served:
gazpacho shooters
artichoke dip
blue cheese stuffed cherry tomatoes
BLT bites
taco bites
tenderloin with herb cream spread
chicken salad
cornbread crostini
shrimp cocktail
goat cheese tarts with roasted peppers
Bourbon BBQ meatballs
Raspberry Tiramisu
banana split cheesecake
chocolate dipped strawberries

Everything was indidual portions, for a quick pick up and keep bidding situation. Grand total for cost $1100.00. And now I rest!
