-corned beef cooked with potatoes, onions, carrots, and celery for 9 hours in a crock pot
-roasted brussel sprouts with red pepper flakes
-roasted red potatoes with parsley
-funeral potatoes (minus the cereal topping)
-mac n' cheese
-spinach strawberry salad (guest contribution)
-mint chocolate chip ice cream pie
-key lime pie & cookies (guest contributions)
The homemade mac n' cheese was mainly for the kids, but several of the adults commented how much they liked it. The real hit of the party though was a "taste the rainbow" drink bar, where guests could sample various colors of soda. Definitely something I'll have to keep in mind for future parties.
*Party tip: Try setting the table with empty serving platters and bowls to help visualize where each dish will go beforehand.
