Still working on my menu. I, as usual, have too many ideas and need to pare down. Will post later.

I'm anxious to hear your menu, you always have some great ideas.

Superbowl......ahhhhhhh. Well, since my team The Patriot's and my DH's team The Cowboys are both out of it, I've decided to make a real nice "pity party" dinner for just my DH and I.

Beef Wellington is the main course, now I just need some ideas for appetizer, sides and dessert.

Aw...shucks, thanks! icon_redface.gif

LOL, I don't even know who's playing! Yes, I am one of those who 1) Watches the Super Bowl for the commercials and 2) uses it as an excuse to have a party. icon_biggrin.gif

As for what to serve with the Beef Wellington...

I so wish I lived in Atlanta prterrell.....you and I would be best buddies, I absolutely love to cook and of course EAT!!

How many people are you having at your party? That's a LOT of food!

LOL icon_lol.gif that's just my brain-storming. I haven't pared it down to a reasonable menu yet. I've invited 14 adults (plus me and hubby) and 7 kids. I'm not serving everything that's on that list, but I figured I might as well post the whole list as a resource of ideas for everyone!

Deb_ You HAVE to come to Atlanta sometime. The hard part will be choosing between eating out at all the fabulous restaurants here and me showing off by cooking for you. Nicholas Lodge is here in ATL, maybe you could come take some classes and we could hang?

7-Layer Dip
Some other type of dip

Those are going to be some VERY well fed people at the party...buttons will be popping by half time. I'm not so far from Atlanta, I'll have to watch for Nicholas Lodge classes.

Man after reading those menus my meal sounds pretty pathetic.lol I'm just having my sisters and their family over. We will likely do something easy like chicken paprika, nukedli(spetsle?), cucumber salad, lots of fresh bread..then of course the regular stuff like cold shrimp, chips, chili dip etc.. I don't want to be slaving over a hot stove all day.

We're doing a whole pig on the rotisserie, cornbread dressing, potato salad, veggies, homemad rolls,and King Cake for our meal. Before hand, we'll have crab dip, sausage bread, seven layer dip, little smokies wrapped in crescent rolls and chips.

Gotta have a lot of food, lots of family, and the pig takes a long time to cook!

GEAUX SAINTS!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHO DAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are smoking a brisket, frying shrimp and grilling sausages and burgers here in Metry, brah!

In addition I am making cheese straws and soft pretzels for snacks and I know friends will be bringing 7 layer dip, shrimp molds, hogs head cheese and the like.

For dessert I am doing oatmeal raisin cookies, brown butter cherry bars, chess squares and choc chip blondies (maybe with peanut butter too...hmmm). We will of course have a black and gold king cake as well!
