Menu Finds with Weekend Gala Extravaganza Dinner Party #9

Here I am, back with a new Gala Dinner Party Extravaganza, and a brand new Dinner Menu.

Don’t you just love dinner parties? I adore them. Large, small, medium, private, public, dancy, fancy, stuck up, footloose, dressy, casual, kiddie, couples, birthday, anniversary or just a ladies night – you name it and I love it.

Creating a fancy menu excites me equally. Should I go for finger foods or mocktails? Cheese or fries? Maybe a pizza night. No, no, let’s have a 7 course dinner evening.

The possibilities are endless. What would you like to cook? How would you go about the decoration? Or table setting? Put on your thinking caps, tie that apron and come on over. Let’s PARTEY!!!!

Over to the Menu :p


Cream Of Chicken Soup

French Onion Soup (my all time fav soup recipe)


Scallops Wrapped in Bacon w/ Sriracha (My personal fav)


Mesclun with Pears and Blue Cheese


Chicken with Herbed Dumplings

Salmon fish fry



Kesar Malai Peda

Winning Dish of the Week:

Butterfinger Dessert


Now, do link up for next week’s menu.

Copy paste this image on your wordpress blog for link back or cntrC my URL for link back.

Link up your dishes right here. I want all of us to have fun. And when you have dinner parties at home, you know where to get the ideas from.

The Fun Begins:

The linky party opens Thursday midnight and closes Wednesday midnight EST. You can post:

a) Anything that you can present in a dinner party. Numbers don’t matter, make whatever takes your fancy. Whip up that cream, grab the wine bottle, broil those steaks, chop the greens or fillet that fish. Go healthy or go sinful. It’s a party, HAVE FUN!

You can also post on party decoration ideas, party games ideas, ice breaker ideas, beauty tips, fashion ideas – in short anything that makes a party rocking.

b) Link new or old blog posts. Share one or share more if you want. But please make sure to link the URL of your blog post, and NOT the homepage. Also, post your own creations and photographs that you have the copyright to.

c) Leave me a comment telling me what you posted.

d) Like my Facebook page for updates, and share this linky party with your friends.

e) Mingle with other Party goers. Visit them and leave them comments. The whole idea of a party is to make friends and this is no different.

Next week I will create the menu – I will pick at least 1-3 appetizer, 2-4 entres, and 1 or 2 dessert items. Also I will share the most viewed post and include it in the menu. I will also pick the most interesting and helpful dinner party help ideas.

I will share them on Twitter, my Facebook page and Pinterest.

Most importantly, HAVE FUN!
