We did have to upgtrade the forum software to the latest version at around that time (I think), though I don't beleive that shoild have changed anyone's settings.

Hope you are receiving notifications again now.

The difficulty I find is mainly what I can provide for vegetarians, once the slices of cucumber topped with cream cheese, crostini with veggie pate ideas have run out!

Quietly dribbilg at all your party-food goings on!

We've had a veggie in the house for a few years now, and more recently vegan. Vegetarian is much easier than vegan IMO.

Not sure on your format and how scrupulously finger-food it needs to be, but I might consider:
Vegetable crisps
Crudites and dips (houmous / guacalome / salsa etc)
Olives
Crostini with... tapenade / roasted peppers, courgettes or similar / sun blushed tomatoes, brie and or other cheeses / baked mushrooms in various combos
Some of those tiny canape style quiche things perhaps? (though much easier to buy than to make)
Butter beans pureed with garlic and a squish of lemon is lovely, especially if warmed (Nigel Slater)
Fresh anchovies if pescatarian

I suppose I am a creature of my early years diagnosis and the fact that everything was so regimented-- these days I just can't be bothered with sweets even though I know I can just bolus for them/

I do like a sugar free mint from time to time
I use those to help my ears pop when landing on a plane.

20 ( plus or minus ) is a great number -- I wanted to invite a few more but DIane is already freaking out with 17 coming.

the more the merrier I say !!

It really is a shame Paul.  I would love “party central”.


I’m catering for a nominal 20,but if peeps have house guests I have said bring them and one or two may not make it if their train home is delayed.

I agree Paul, far more tempting, but if I am on a bus or a train with a very dry mouth (I mean so dry I can hardly speak and my tongue is glued to the roof of my mouth),then a sugar free sweet is a boon eaten to moisten my mouth rather than from enjoyment and I am grateful there are such things.

just to add ---- other than treating hypo's -- i never have a sweet -I just avoid them

I am more tempted by a good crust of a loaf of bread slathered with butter

haha sedge -- that made me laugh -- the chickens are welsh , the lettuce is british -- but the spicy bits are chinese to gain the taste

LOL -- if patti and I were neighbours it would be a non stop eatathon and party central --  ( shame really it isn't )

Is the chicken Chinese, or the lettuce? - just needed to ask .... but anyway surely it will be half Canadian and half Welsh ?  LOL

Lucky you and Patti live so far apart and don't share neighbours !
