FoodI helped bake the crusts for these veggie pizzas. Basically, you roll our croissant dough on a cookie sheet and bake it until it's golden. After it's browned, you let it cool. Then you mix together cream cheese and ranch dressing mix and spread it on the top as "sauce". Top with your favorite veggies (chopped real small) and enjoy! We used broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, carrots, and black olives for our veggie pizza. These are always a big hit!
I also made several batches of M & M cookies, using this recipe I found on pinterest. The secret ingredient? Vanilla pudding mix. They were so so delicious, and I'm not just saying that because I made them. The only changes I made to the recipe was to leave out the mini chocolate chips and I used regular M&M's because we couldn't find the minis. I eyeballed the amount because 1 and 1/2 cups of regular sized M&M's were too many. I think I ended up using 1/2-3/4 cup of them, depending on how I felt the dough looked. This is one of my new favorite cookie recipes!
As for the rest of the party spread we had a veggie tray, chips, hummus and pita chips, BBQ pulled pork, sloppy joes...and I think that's it, but I'm probably leaving something out. The food was a big team effort between all of us: my mom, my dad, my mom's super awesome friend... it was so much fun getting it all together!
We had a blast at the party. Lots of food, fun, and hanging out with people!
