Foursquare Day BBQ

My husband uses Foursquare on his work iPhone. I think everyone at his office uses it too. His workplace hosted a Foursquare Day BBQ today so my husband and I made food for the party. About 40 people RVPed for the party. Brats, burgers, chips, and drinks were provided by other people.

Cantaloupe Salsa appetizer

My husband made this salsa. He used red onion, cilantro, juice a lime (1 lime per cataloupe), cantaloupe, and jalapeno. I don't usually eat cantaloupe as just sliced fruit but I really did like it as a salsa.


The salads

Asian Coleslaw

I made this recipe
Ramen Noddle Coleslaw and my only addition is I like to toast the almonds before adding them to the slaw





Wagon Wheel Pasta

I use this recipe Wagon Wheel Taco Pasta Salad and I also add Good Seasonings Italian Dressing. I buy the packet of seasoning in the salad dressing aisle and follow the directions on the package. I like my pasta salad to be a little wetter than the original recipe.



Bread
My husband made jalapeno cheddar cornbread muffins again. The same recipe and results as posted here Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread Muffins

Desert
I made M&M Sugar Cookie Bars because I saw this post in my Google Reader this week and it made me HUNGRY for this desert!
I doubled the recipe for my larger sized pan. After 10 minutes I would pull the bars out and add the m&ms. I think I waited a little too long (15 minutes) and the bars were cooked enough that the m&ms didn't set into the bars very well. No complaints about them at the party. They were wiped out. I managed to cut out 30 bars from the 1 pan.
