Thanksgiving - Cousin Appetizer Challenge

Normally at our family dinners the cousins are not involved in the cooking. This year we were put to good use to supply the appetizers before our hearty Thanksgiving Meal. I suggested that we have a competition and put up $20 to the winner.

Dana's entry - Chanterelle mushrooms on Toast. Yum!

James entered a family favorite - Shrimp, cocktail sauce, Monterey jack over cream cheese and topped with cilantro. Very tasty.

 This is my entry - Hot Crab Dip - lots of cream cheese, mayo and sour cream make up the stunner. It needed more hot sauce but I still found it quite delicious.

The Ardigo's brought the Cocktail Weenies - They are always a hit!

Charles of course brought down the house with his two entries. The first being a play on an original appetizer we all enjoy. Cream Cheese with salmon, caviar and onions. The salmon was a nice touch.

The ceviche was also one of Charles' and he killed it with this one! So fresh and flavorful. Just what we needed after all that cream cheese! Good work Charles!

Winner winner, Turkey Dinner! Charles was named Champion of the 1st Annual Crompton Cousin Appetizer Contest!
