Game of thrones risk and snacks…gluten free vegetarian finger sandwiches I might add.

Friends coming for Game of Thrones Risk!  Snacks needed!  So obviously I chose to try out gluten free finger sandwiches…duh

It’s been years since I slaves over finger sandwiches slowly to ensure perfect shapes and filling and slicing without glopping, etc

Not Saturday…this was all about efficiency and flavor…not beauty (I and I swear I’m missing pics..,)   
The sandwiches picture here were made using 1 loaf of Udi’a bread (the small 6 dollar loaf not the big 12 dollar loaf)…but the bread has a very uneven top crust making cutting the sandwiches without too much waste difficult so the shapes are not uniform.

Above is pictured the grated carrot, curry, and some hot Indian spices…I loved it!
Also involved was cucumber dill, and my favorite-olive.  The loaf of Udi’s made precisely 6 sandwiches…two of each type which were cut into thirds

The typical veggie tray with an appearance by some Tokyo turnips


Creamy peppercorn dressing with penzeys spice base…and some cream cheese stuffed celery with a penzeys chipotle sprinkle
Yup…an attempt at pinwheels with Mission gluten free tortillas….garlic spinach cream cheese, and avocado/onion sprout/cream cheese…

Maria and Ryan brought a nice Espelon blanco tequila and Bloody Mary mix for a nice bloody Maria 


Sometime in the middle I broke free of the bloody Maria and Ryan and I shared my Stone vertical epic 12-12-12 that I have been clutching.

Jim and Maria were well and truly into the game even though Jim won..

Ryan was the first man out and spent time with his secret Ryan notebook.

    So Jim won the Game of Thrones. Everyone else is dead, I assume? According to Cersei, those are the only outcomes. Who was Jim playing as? Stark? Lannister? Greyjoy? Baratheon??? Who!

    (I really need the next book to come out, or the next season…)

      He was baratheon
      We’ll get a fix with the book he just released that predates the got timeline

        Baratheons are always winning. MY office has played the Game of Thrones boardgame (not the Risk version) twice, and both times, Baratheon.
