    Re: Grad party-favorite recipes to serve a crowd

    My DDG had a grad party, DD served, cocktail weenies in sauce, meatballs in BBQ sauce, finger sandwiches,fruit trays,veggies trays, but their big hit was a chocolate fountain, they used it for dipping fruit.I know they had more food, but my mind is blank right now.
    I organize chores into catagories.
    Things I won't do now; things I won't do later; things I'll never do.

      We always wanted to do a cook-out-but with 3 boys graduating in different years-each time it rained-so we ended up doing Kentucky Fried Chicken, chips, dip, veggie and fruit platter, the cocktail hot dogs in sauce, potato salad, deviled eggs, regular cake and ice cream cake, pop, ice tea, lemonade.

          lettuce
          cheddar cheese shredded
          taco meat
          sliced black olives
          tomatoes- diced

          You can mix the salad and serve or put out the fixin's and let people build what they like. You can even make it a taco bar, with some shells and let people pick.

              Fruit Salad


              2 cups orange juice
              1 cup sugar
              1 teaspoon vanilla
              1 teaspoon almond flavoring
              2 fresh yellow apples
              6 fresh red apples
              1 whole pineapple
              strawberries
              3 cans mandarin oranges drained
              banana

              Mix all ingredients except banana and store in refrigerator overnight. Just before serving add a sliced banana

              You can really add any type of fruit you want but one word of advice. Don't use blueberries unless you want all of your fruit blue. Been there done that, it looked gross.

                my granddaughters ( teenagers) like wraps, cut them in bite size pieces, and you can make them the evening before, wrap tightly so they don't dry out.

                  We just had my son's grad party two weeks ago,and we served hot dogs and coney dog sauce with all the condiments along with chips, tortilla chips and cheese, cole slaw, relish tray, dessert ball and teddy grahams, and cake w/ice cream (of course). Every one ate and it had a picnic atmosphere! Many went up for seconds!

                  Congrats to the grad and I hope you enjoy your party!!

                    We just had a grad party for my oldest daughter. We served grilled burgers and dogs. The graduate does not eat either so I fixed some taco stuff, also. We served baked beans, potato salad and mac & cheese, too. I don't have recipes written down. Sorry. We didn't have a grad. cake. I fixed an ooey gooey butter cake and chocolate chip cookie bars. It was great.

                    Congratulations to the Grad.

                      My grad party (some 20 years ago) was broken up by the cops! I can't imagine a grad party so flaky as to not have alcohol, but maybe that's because we were raised in the Midwest?
