Garden Theme Party Part 2: Food

1 Comment

Now my sister and I always go a little overboard with the food at parties. But in our defense we were expecting 75 people to attend this party and we didn’t want anyone to go hungry.

Let’s do the rundown:

Appetizers

Assorted cheese platter with nuts and bread

Pesto

Chips, beans and salsa

Jalapeño-Artichoke Dip

Clam Dip

Hummus and Veggie Sticks

Baked brie

Salads

Andy Spark’s Orzo Salad

Garden Green Salad

Greek Salad

Potato Salad

Edamame Salad

Chinese Chicken Salad

Main Dishes

Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Beet and Goat Cheese Tarts

Roast Beef and Turkey Sandwiches

Karaage (Japanese Chicken)

Salmon-zushi

Maki-zushi

Turkey Meatballs with Sesame-Garlic Sauce

Desserts

Garden Scene Italian White Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Carrot Cake

Pineapple Coffee Cake

Madelines

Fudgey Saucepan Brownies

Banana Bread

Lemon Pound Cake

Hay Bales (Rice Krispy Treats)

Candy Station

We tried to have as many ingredients from our gardens as possible so we included lettuces, kale, peas, beets and basil from the garden. The entire menu was made from scratch. Many are recipes passed down from our grandmother.

Now for some photos:
