The breakfast nook was set up with a wonderful array of medium to heavy hors d’oeuvres. We had Chilled Marinated Grilled Vegetables, Penne Pasta tossed with Portobellos and Roasted Peppers in a yummy Basil Cream Sauce, and miniature sandwiches as far as the eye could see.


Assorted Sandwiches of Carved Ham with Whole Grain Mustard Sauce and Carved Turkey with Cranberry Aioli were served on Sweet Potato Rolls. The Carved Roast Beef sandwiches had Cheddar and a Horseradish Cream on Soft White Rolls.
