Our oldest son graduated from high school last weekend. For a kid who appreciates good food as much as my son does, I wanted to do just a bit more than cake and punch. I had a lot of fun coming up with a fun menu. Here's what we cooked up:

  • Tortilla pinwheels --I made these a day ahead of time and refrigerated them overnight. This keeps them from unrolling when you cut them up.
Turkey and Swiss Pinwheels
  • Little Smokies wrapped in dinner roll dough --We cut the dough into tiny triangles like you do for crescent rolls, and then wrapped a triangle of dough around each Little Smoky. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.
Cheesy Pigs in Blankets
Sweet-and-Sour Meatballs
Lemon Curd Pound Cake
Petite Blueberry Cheesecakes

It's a good thing I made a lot of food because we ended up having 75 people at our house! It was also good that the day was sunny. That way outdoor tables could be used, making it a bit less crowded indoors. The food really seemed to be a hit with everyone. I enjoyed offering a bit more than your standard cake and punch. What about you? What kinds of party food do you enjoy making when you're expecting a crowd?
