Seattle Bandster Brunch

I just got back from a week in Seattle with my friends Lisa and John. On Saturday, August 21st, we hosted a brunch for the weight loss surgery support group that Lisa leads. It was almost too beautiful to eat (we did, however, manage to overcome that).
Going counter clockwise from the 11 o'clock position:

whole grain tortilla chips with avocado & cucumber guacamole
cheese chunks (cheddar & havarti) & almonds
mushrooms with cheese & artichoke stuffing
chicken tenders with spicy peanut dipping sauce
prosciutto-wrapped cantaloupe and whole dates
deviled eggs
a JMM version of eggface egg "bites"
strawberries, blackberries, watermelon & cantaloupe with berry cream cheese dip
cucumber slices, pita chips, and whole grain crackers with creamy onion spread & smoked salmon

A good time was had by all, and Lisa and her family now have enough leftover food to last them for a week!
