So my daughter will be two at the end of October. My wife has already begun obsessing over themes, favors, guest list, etc of the birthday party. Me not so much... with one exception.. the food.
We live in Rhode Island so fall will be in full swing. The party will likely be at a Gymboree or similar facililty a twenty minute drive from our house. I am told they crank the AC. I am not sure if chafing dishses/sterno etc. will be possible. Probably somewhere around 40 adults.
Goals are delicious food that will hold up given the above conditions and be a cut above the typical pizza strips, cold cuts, pasta in red sauce options.
My thoughts so far. Some kind of dip with veggies, pita chips etc. A crostini with a peppered steak and horseradish cream. Some kind of chicken wings. Something vegetarian.
Thoughts, ideas suggestions?
