Oscars Party: Menu Ideas

The theme of your Oscars party menu should be: simple. You can't be in the kitchen flambe-ing your entree while the best dress of the night strolls down the carpet. Plus, everything thing you serve needs to be eaten with eyes locked on James Franco, so think glorified finger food.

Main Entree
Pizza-Buy the dough and assemble the rest yourself. Fancy up the toppings for your wow factor
1) Caramelized onions and gorgonzola
2) Shrimp and red peppers
3) Fresh arugula, prosciutto and figs (fig spread subs in the off-season)

Lillet Champagne Cocktail
(or sub in any slightly sweeter white wine. Add a dash of flavored
vodka for those who can sleep in on Monday)

Mini-Pies are the new cupcake.
DC peeps, these are from Baked and Wired.
Everyone else, hit up the bakery for some turnovers

Sweet and Salty Popcorn Topping:
-Mix ground ginger, crushed red pepper, pinches of sugar and salt and sprinkle over buttered popcorn

A must if you're going to have something to throw at the TV in protest of 80's shoulder pads and hideous applique.
