So...I'm hosting a group of women this Friday for dinner, and am stuck debating whether to do an appetizer only dinner, or serve an actual dinner.
Appetizer only dinner would be 7-9 different appetizers, covering all major groups (protein, starch, veggie, snack/dips).
Dinner would be 2-3 appetizers, something easy, and a more substantial main course.
People are coming at 6:30 for dinner/drinks...I've been to get together's with this same group before, and everyone tends to mingle for the majority of the time, drinking and munching, which is why I was thinking appetizer only. And I don't have enough table space for everyone to sit down at once to eat, and I personally hate the balancing act when trying to eat/cut/etc. without a table.
So...what do you all think? Is an appetizer and cocktail dinner ok? Or would you expect and want a full dinner?
