End of Summer/Getting ready for the Fall

How is it that summer is over already?! I feel like it went by SO quickly! But I have to say, it was a great summer! Lots of catering! And it doesn’t stop there. Planned an AMAZING menu for an “End of the summer pool party”, which should have been this past weekend, but with Hurricane Dorian passing through, we had to reschedule our event for a couple of weeks from now. (Be sure to check in a couple of weeks for the final results!) This party of 40 people will have:

*Crudite platter with veggies, fruit, hummus, and tzatziki

*Veggie paninis with pesto

*Antipasto pasta salad with an herb vinaigrette

*Sliders with all sorts of toppings

*Grilled chicken

*Grilled corn with cilantro lime butter

*Coleslaw

*BBQ spiced popcorn

*Sweet and savory chex party mix

*Peach cobbler

*Strawberry shortcake

I don’t think it’s going to be enough food! LOL If you read the post before, this is going to be for the family that I catered a fun First Holy Communion for their daughter. The best compliment they gave me, being able to be present for their celebration while having fun hosting and not having to prep and cook for all of their guests. Can you imagine this pool party with all of this food and they won’t get to enjoy their own party? I can’t wait to post how it went! So when she requested peach cobbler, I began to crave it so I HAD to make a little batch of it (ya know, because of the diet! LOL).
