Rice Bar Carry In Meal
I told you the Cinnamony Goodness post other day that I would post about the rice bar we had for the small group party.
I got the idea for this from WBCL's Kitchen Caboodle Mid Morning program. We were planning a small group party at our house and we wanted to do a carry in type dinner. They left the theme up to me because we were hosting and I remembered the kitchen caboodle program.
The way that I did it was I sent out an email saying that we were doing a rice bar and I would provide the rice, dessert, and 1 topping and everyone else could bring whatever they wanted that went on rice.
I made both white and brown rice, Peanutty Goodness (Asian Peanut Beef, will post that recipe soon :) ), and Cinnamony Goodness. I also provided hot drinks, water and homemade grape juice.
There were 3 other couples who brought food and they brought Coconut Curry, Asian Yuminess (thats what she called it :), it was meat, beans, and broccoli with soy sauce), and Mexican Rice Bowls. We had so much food and so much fun! I wish I would have gotten some pictures of the bar so you could see what it looked like, but I was too busy cooking and socializing.
So what about you? What would you do for a carry in theme?
