Houswarming BBQ Menu

My husband and I had our Housewarming BBQ this past Saturday. This was our first party at our new house...technically this was our first party that we've thrown together as a couple!  It turned out really nice.  I will write about it on my personal blog sometime this week, but in the mean time, below is the menu I created.  Everyone enjoyed the food and was very complimentary.  I originally had so many things I ended up cutting a few things from the menu at the last minute.   Our final count was 25 adults, 7 kids, 1 toddler and 1 baby.  We had more than food, actually plenty of leftovers!

Here's a picture of the appetizer spread before everyone started to arrive.  I got busy and forgot to take a picture of all of the entree food once the grilled items were done.  Also, everyone started on the desserts before I got to it with my camera.  Oh well.

Appetizers:
Tortilla Chips w/ Salsa
Ruffles Chips w/ Spinach, Artichoke & Parmesan Dip
Fruit Tray (wawatermelon, grapes, honey dew, strawberries)
Spanakopitas (two trays)

Entree Dishes:
Grilled Items: Beef Hot Dogs, Andouilli Chicken Sausages, Beef Hamburgers
Hot Items: Veggie Bakes Beans, String Beans, Macaroni and Cheese
Cold Items: Coleslaw, Cucumber Salad

Dessert:
Pineapple Dream Cake
Snickers Apple Salad

Here are the benched items:
Hot Queso Dip
Veggie Tray
Strawberry Ice Box Cake
