Autumnal dinner party

Last night we hosted 11 for dinner in our home. The menu:

I posted the recipe for the soup a week ago; the rest of the dishes were pretty standard fare for us, although I did make the coconut- and pecan-filled frosting for the (round, layered) cake from scratch (which was a first). The meat was grilled.

It was a lot of work, but I’d call it a success. Still quite tired this morning, though.

  4. Sounds delish! 11 people is quite the dinner party. Glad it was a success!

  5. Yum yum yum. And I’d be interested in seeing your German Potato recipe! In a future Weekend Cooking? 😉 My grandmother has one (she’s Swiss) but I’ve never attempted it as it contains so many herbs, but I’d love to find an easy substitute.

  6. I love dinner parties! Judging by the menu it looks like a fun time was had by all 🙂

What do you think? I'd love to know.
