Although I had prepared a Cobb Salad bar at my older son’s birthday party, I was too pooped to cook for my younger son’s party. For nibbles, I put out some fruit platters, a cheese and charcuterie platter, and a bunch of carbs. I’m sorry, but we didn’t want to alienate our guests.
For the main event, I ordered a bunch of Mexican food from Mi Pueblo Food Center: carne asada, carnitas, and rotisserie chicken, Mexican rice, refried beans, salsa verde, guacamole, regular salsa, and tortillas. For those of us who wanted to go Paleo, I also put out a large bowl of salad greens with shredded purple cabbage and carrots.
Here’s my salad platter with all three meats, salsa, and guacamole:
Everyone had a great time and was well-fed. Mission accomplished.
