Party Time!

Last night, Johnnycakes and I hosted a mini neighborhood pot luck party at our house. Everyone pitched in a bit and we had an amazing dinner with food, drinks and fun! We threw this party together very quickly when a bunch of us neighbors decided on Tuesday night it would be a good idea to cook out with our new grill. With some haphazard planning, everyone volunteered to perform a task to round out the meal.

Last night, everyone brought something to eat or drink and it was party time! There were even a few surprises since everyone was worried there wouldn't be enough food.

The Menu:

  • Homemade guacamole
  • Chips and salsa
  • Garden salad with homemade lime-cilantro dressing
  • Beef Shish Kabobs w/ pineapple, peppers and onions
  • Brats
  • Corn on the cob
  • Spanish rice w/ peppers, tomatos and onions
  • Homemade garlic mashed potatoes
  • Fruit salad
  • A storebought apple crumb pie
  • Homemade Margaritas

As you can see, there was plenty of food! Now that we know we can pull one of these off without a hitch, we plan to throw more parties.
