Thursday Thirteen – The BBQ Menu

This weekend I’ll be hosting a BBQ Going Away party for a coworker of my husband. With about 20 or so expected to come, and the vast majority being men, I’ve decided to make the food simple, and of course, yummy. Here are 13 items that I’ll be serving. Much of the food will be placed at 2 tables where they’ll be sitting around. I’ll have a 3rd table set as the “bar” and the larger items, like the salads.

  1. Tortilla chips and salsa/queso
  2. Chips and dip
  3. Veggies and dip
  4. Hard pretzels
  5. Nuts
  6. Crackers
  7. French Potato Salad (yummy Barefoot Contessa recipe!)
  8. Pasta salad
  9. Garden salad
  10. Churassco (skirt steak) – cut into bite size pieces and set at tables
  11. Hot and mild sausage – cut into bite size pieces and set at tables
  12. BBQ Chicken
  13. Cookies & brownies
