This past Friday we had our first neighborhood Progressive Dinner. We decided to stick to three courses - three houses since it was our first and it was a Friday evening. Our first house, cocktails & appetizers, was wonderful. The Browns' had sangria, Mexican bears, shrimp ceviche, chips and salsa. After about an hour there we moved to our house...the entree. I thought a lot about it and decided that since it would be a buffet I wanted something that would be easy to eat without a table, so I went with a taco salad bar.
I had all the fixin's for the salads...lettuce, tomato, black olives, different cheeses and sour cream.
The drinks were probably the easiest part...Of course I made sangria. Then I picked up two beers - Corona and Negro Modelo. I made limeade for something non-alcoholic. I also had a pitcher of water.
I had a lot of fun with the decorating...I used things I had and a few things I picked up at the craft store. All the sombreros I had...from my daycare time ;) I picked up a few bunches of bright colored flowers, the dish towels with recipes, and a fun table runner. I think the evening went very well and we will do it again.
Oh, for our final course we went to eh McKennas for dessert...Tres Leche cake, Mexican wedding cookies and a fruit salad. maybe next time we will do Italian!
