1-Make something in your slow cooker...
I decided to make pot roast. It seemed easy and like it would be a nice Fall comfort food dish which was my goal.
To make this I.....browned the meat in some oil with salt and pepper. This was the hardest part just because the meat was so heavy. Then I stuck it in the slow cooker. I mixed the soup, can of beef broth, one can of water and mushroom soup together and covered the meat. I cooked this on low for four hours. Then I added in the veggies and cooked on high for about 4 more hours. I probably could have taken it out sooner but it was very tender and falling apart when I finally took it out and that's how I wanted it.
This pot roast cost less than $20 to make and served like 16 people.
2-Make an easy vegetarian dish
3-Have people bring side dishes and appetizers
If it's on your birthday someone is definitely bringing/making a cake. So then dessert is covered.
Yes I had my birthday party at my house. But I enjoy entertaining and people brought tons of stuff. I don't know the etiquette on throwing your own birthday party so we'll just say B threw it for me but I offered to do some cooking and decorating.
Have you ever cooked a four pound piece of meat?
Does this count on my 30 for 30 list as having a dinner party at my house? I think it does.
