Yay sweet potato fries, will they be dusted with cinnamon powdered sugar? They serve those at my favorite movie theater and I am a nut for them.

I think it sounds fabulous, but mostly heavy… Personally if I were there I would really like at lesat one lighter option. I dont see a single vegetable on there

I really like that you’ve include fresh fruit. If people want to each fresh fruit as a healthy alternative, will there be enough to make a fruit salad or will there just be enough to dip into the chocolate fondue? Would you consider adding some fresh veggies? I’m not a vegetarian, but a lot of those options sound really heavy. Overall, the menu sounds nice though!

@Miss Yoga Pants: I will have to check! YUM! I’m getting hungry! 😉
@lefeymw & @EvaBostonTerrier: There will be enough fruit for guests to have as much as they would like. It will be a large display. I will speak with my cateer about serving some veggies! That’s a great idea! I was so worried about not having enough food, I didn’t think about it being to heavy. 🙂

I think that looks fabulous, as long as you’re not inviting any vegans or vegetarians. But as a carnivore, I’d be thrilled!

@Beluga: I guess I should note for everyone that we know that no one we are inviting or any of their guests will be vegans or vegetarians. 🙂 It’s a pretty close nit group of family and friends and we all know eachother well. And thank you! 🙂

I can’t vote unless I know what the portions are. Are they big or small? That lets me know whether it’s too much or not enough. But it looks yummy 🙂

@kperry3: Everything will be pre-portioned and pre-plated, but guests will be able to have as much as they would like of each item. There is no limit. I am not sure if that helps. 🙂

Lol I’m a vegetarian so I would be eating a lot of mac n cheese and sweet potato fries, but I would survive. I also like the idea of having lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. That would give it some variety.

Carbs are my crack so I would love the bejeezes out of that meal. Sane me might like something green-ish (and by that I mainly mean some kind of delightful salad) so I could justify a fourth portion of mac and cheese in my head, but, other than that, yum.
