Creamed Mushrooms on Toast

As the Holiday Season approaches, you may already be thinking about the need for appetizers. Here's one of my favourites.

Use ordinary cremini mushrooms or a fancier combo. This tastes best on toasted egg bread. Let guests serve themselves or prep a fancy platter for an impressive show.

Asian Pasta Primavera

Since vegetarians began to appear at family dinner tables, this Pasta Primavera  (from Chatelaine) has been one of my "go to" dishes. I make this almost à la minute, and one guest is usually generous enough to mind the stove and pull this together. With absolutely everything prepped and pre- measured (and with the offer of a clean/funky apron) they seem happy to step up and deal with the 5 steps.  1) oil and onions 2) first set of vegetables 3) add sauce 4) add last two veg and pasta; 5) big finish with onions and sprouts.
