Kid and Husband are going out of town for Thanksgiving. I wasn't going to do anything but drink wine and watch chick flicks but a coworker is throwing a mish mash of a dinner, last minute. We're all bringing a part of the dinner.
There are 10 confirmed guests, two kids (3/5) and then three to four potentials. Dinner will start at 3 and everyone is invited to come at 12 to start drinking etc.
I picked appetizers. Is this enough, too little, too heavy?
(2) 8oz brie en croute w/crackers
Bacon wrapped dates
Roasted green beans with Garlic Aioli (I plan for these to be served chilled)
Apple Pie Dip (I know there will be an apple crisp for dessert so I'm torn if I should bother with this)
Other apps I was thinking about was grabbing a selection of olives from an olive bar and then the pickle spears. Or maybe a baked spinach bowl w/ a few veggies?

I really love cooking and as an added bonus this will help keep me distracted when I'm not with the family! Plus with the above I already have it in my fridge and pantry and I'm trying not to spend a lot.
I don't want to over power the main meal but I also don't want to have too little.
