BBQ Menu

My party went off without a hitch today. The weather was nice (although SUPER HOT), the food was good and I didn’t go completely nuts. I ate a bit more then I probably should have but overall I feel good about the day.

Instead of my normal daily journal (because the points wouldn’t be accurate anyway) I thought I would share my party menu.

BBQ chicken
I marinated chicken legs and boneless chicken tenders in BBQ sauce overnight and grilled them. Oh they came out YUMMY. I’m assuming others liked them as well because I have NO LEFTOVERS! The toddler had almost three whole pieces!
Baked Beans
I put 1 can of BBQ beans, 3 cans of “pork and beans” and 1 can of regular old navy beans in the crock pot with a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce and a dash of nutmeg.
Grilled Potatoes
Using the Vegetable Grill Trick, I layered a bed of Vidalia onions and 4 cans on whole potatoes (drained) drizzled with a bit of olive oil and sprinkled with spices and placed on the grill for a bit. Oh… these were my favorite! I probably ate too much but MAN were they good!
Munchies
For munchies, I had baked corn chips with salsa and pretzel thins.

My guests handled everything else, the pasta salad, fruit salad and Brownies!

These brownies were a bit of a downfall for me. They were SOOO good. Let’s see, the only way I can explain them were nutty, chocolate, graham cracker bites. Thankfully, they were cut in really small pieces. I also gave some to my guests to take home so I wouldn’t be tempted with the leftovers.

There you have it, Roni’s BBQ menu. I stuck with a few light beers and munched on everything in moderation. Like I said, I could have done better but it was a party and I think I made pretty good choices in my menu choices.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.
