Sliders Bar for a Going Away Party!

Once in awhile your path crosses with someone you never would have otherwise known! Such is the case for this special young lady, a foreign exchange student from Norway, who came to OKC, attended a year of school and graduated with the senior class at Putnam City North HS. I know it was bittersweet for her to go back home, but I know that she will always have family here who had welcomed her into their home and considered her their daughter while she lived here. We had the privilege of catering a very special going away party for her and her friends and American family.  Menu:  Sliders Bar with Traditional Burgers and Pulled BBQ Chicken, a variety of cheeses, sauces, and toppings, Fresh Spinach Dip & Pita Chips and Fresh Made Salsa and Chips, and 3 kinds of Dessert Shooters:  Fresh Strawberries & Cream, Chocolate Brownie Lush, and Dulce de Leche Crumble & Cream. yummo. I wish the best of luck to this young lady and hope her experiences here in America were wonderful memories for her to carry with her forever! Para la vida loca!

Catering an Asian Fusion Menu!

What an honor and privilege to be asked to cater a very special Confirmation Party for a lovely young lady! When I met with this family to discuss menu options and she expressed her love for asian food, I was so thrilled! Not often am I asked for this type of menu and little did she know that I am actually half Japanese!! As we discussed the different dishes we could do, it made me happy to know that what I was offering was authentic recipes passed down to me from my incredible Japanese mother, who was by far the best cook I have ever met in my life. So in her memory (she's been gone for 14 years now), I lovingly and happily created dishes that I knew would make her proud. This was one of the funnest menus I have had the privilege to do!! Asian Fusion Menu: Asian Salad, Japanese Gyoza, LoMein with veggies, Chicken Yakitori, Asian Steak Skewers, Pickled Carrots & Daikon, Steamed White Rice, and various sauces including our own spicy mayo recipe.
