Well, Irene has come and gone and now its time to eat up the ridiculous amount of supplies I had compiled to weather the storm. I’d say its time for a little hurricane festivities to celebrate making it to Sunday dry-well we are speaking about the weather here-my supplies definitely included the necessary wine and spirits.

Tropical fruit platter: slice one mango, one ripe nectarine, and one star fruit. Layer on a plate and top with a handful of raspberries.
Caesar and cilantro deviled eggs: 6 hard boiled eggs, 2 teaspoons favorite caesar dressing, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon minced cilantro, salt and freshly ground pepper, dash of hot smoked paprika, one cornichon sliced thin for garnish.
Chicken salad sandwich rolls: 1 cup of cooked chicken meat, 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons thinly sliced celery, 2 tablespoons raisins, dash poultry seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, salt and freshly ground pepper. Assemble with romaine lettuce in small potato rolls (I used 2 hot dog rolls sliced in 1/3’s)
