  • Tortilla Roll-Ups-
    1 country roast chicken
    8 med red radishes, washed, dried, ends trimmed, coarsely grated
    (1 cup) good-quality whole-egg mayonnaise
    2/3 cup finely shredded fresh mint
    Salt & freshly ground black pepper
    24 slices wholemeal bread, crusts removed
    Remove the bones from the chicken meat, shred it and place it in a large mixing bowl. Add to it the radish, mint and mayonnaise and mix well. Then add the salt and pepper, mix well and keep aside. Place the bread slices in a single layer, spread the mixture on them and top with the remaining slices of bread. Cut the sandwich length ways and hold in place with toothpicks.

  • Directions
    To make dip: In a food processor with knife blade attached, mince garlic. Add mangoes, lime zest, lime juice, vinegar, Tabasco sauce, salt, and pepper. Process until very smooth. Add mint and pulse once or twice, just to combine. Pour into a bowl and cover; refrigerate until serving.
    To make shrimp: Line 2 cookie sheets with waxed paper or plastic wrap. In a large bowl, whisk rice flour, all-purpose flour, and salt to combine. Add club soda and whisk until smooth. Mixture should have consistency of pancake batter; add more club soda if necessary. Spread coconut on a plate. Pat shrimp dry with paper towels; add to batter and toss to coat. Remove shrimp from batter one at a time, letting excess drip off. Dredge in coconut. Place on prepared cookie sheets. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate while oil heats, or up to 4 hours.

  • heres one the kids can help with: make sandwhiches, but make a varity, like ham salad, chik salad, lunch meat, whatever, and then have the kids attack the them with cookie cutters. not only do you have finger food, you have fun finger food.(the salads work better then the lunch meat.)

  • 3-Pour oil into an 8-quart heavy-bottom pot. Heat over medium-low heat until temperature reaches 350 degrees on a deep-fat thermometer. Carefully drop shrimp into oil, about 8 at a time and fry until golden brown and just cooked through, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. With a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels, skimming coconut from oil between batches. Serve hot with dip.
