2023 Christmas Get Together; Food Edition

Every year a group of ladies get together for a Christmas catch up /get together.  I hosted this year and today I will focus on the food.  I put out snacks for all of us to nibble on, the cashews proved to be popular!!!
DD provided the veggie tray, the dips and a fruit tray (not pictured).  One lady was vegan and another vegetarian.
My usual garden salad, with the added "fru-fru" of micro greens, which I must say I do enjoy, I provided ranch dressing and balsamic dressing for the salad.
The back tray contains vegetable samosa's that "R's" mother always make and they are so good, plus they are Vegan.  I did roasted mini potatoes (vegan), a small ham, homemade sausage rolls, and a variety of cheeses.
In the slow cooker was sweet and sour meatballs.  I then bought some "finish baking in your own oven," Brioche rolls from Ace Bakery.  They were on sale for $5.99, so a bit of a splurge, but they were really nice. 

I totally forgot to take photos of dessert, however we have leftovers, so will take photos to give you an idea what we had.

Everyone seemed to enjoy it.
