Deviled Eggs   Crab Langostine Rangoon   Shrimp Toasts  (we have a new toaster oven; I didn't set it right and the shrimp were cold on a warm shell)

Ham and Pineapple Dressing
Green Bean Casserole
Mashed Honey-Butter-Jalapeno Sweet Potatoes (used the "juice" from a jar of jalapeno slices - not spicy at all - honey elbowed it out of the way.)

Dessert - Assorted small "cake bites" and vari-flavored macaroons
Savory Course - no one wanted any more to eat, but I was ready anyhow - Carambazola cheese, cashews, candied pecans. salt and pepper crackers.

* Eton Mess - This is served in a tall glass and consists of crushed meringue, raspberries and heavy cream.  Am not sure "heavy cream" exists in the U.S.
