playing hostess

Had to play hostess today during one of our library events and got to exercise some of my event planner type skills. The event centered on a visit from the Deputy Consul from Argentina, so I had to develop an Argentinean theme for the treats to be served. Some quick research and trips to various stores and Hispanic shops turned up the perfect mix of quick, affordable bites.

Went with a blue and white theme for the tableware to coordinate with Argentina’s flag.

Martin Fierros – Manchego cheese (I used sharp white cheddar to stay within our library event budget) and quince jelly. Similar to the Cuban timba (white cheese and guava paste). A tasty, sweet and savory mix.

Medialunas (croissants) and Dulce de Leche (similar to caramel but creamier)

Sausages! Argentina loves beef!

 

Overall, the treats were a huge success, as was the event 🙂

  1. Gricel – I’m not sure what’s going on, but your latest two posts don’t seem to have a way to comment. They’re also coming through in Google reader as truncated, showing only a couple sentences. I can’t seem to find any way to comment on them, but the comment box shows up just fine here and on older posts. I wasn’t sure if you’d just closed up comments on those two posts, or if there was something wrong, so I figured I’d come leave you a comment here to let you know.

    Also, for some reason even this comment box won’t just let me comment using my name/URL – I have to log in via wordpress, twitter, or facebook. So I’m commenting with my twitter account.

    1. Hi Amanda, some parts of the blog might still be migrating to the WP server, or it might be the nameservers transferring. I closed the domain and transferred everything… it’s been glitchy the last couple of days but I’ll look into it. Thanks!
