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.
