Dinner Party!

Kayla and I are having a few friends over for dinner tomorrow and we have been trying to figure out what we want to have. I think we have decided on spaghetti. My favorite part of cooking has never been the main dish, but the things that go with it. I've attached some recipes for things to go with the spaghetti. Let me know what you think. Hope everyone is enjoying fall!


Oriental Slaw

Ingredients: Dressing- 1 cup vegetable oil, 1/3 cup red wine vinegar, 1/2 cup of sugar, 2 ramen noodle seasoning packets. Slaw- 1 lb slaw mix or chopped cabbage (I like the red cabbage, it adds more color to the recipe), 2 bunches of chopped green onions, 2 packages of ramen noodles and 1 cup of toasted almonds.


Directions: Stir dressing before adding to slaw. You can toast ramen noodles beforehand as well. Toss slaw ingredients and mix with dressing right before serving.


Cheese Bread

Ingredients: ½ c. very soft butter, 1 c. grated mozzarella cheese, 1 c. grated cheddar cheese, 1 small can chopped olives, ¼ tsp. garlic powder, ½ c. mayonnaise, ½ c. green onions, 1 long loaf of French Bread, sliced horizontally


Directions: In a bowl, mix together the butter, cheeses, olives, garlic powder, mayonnaise, and green onions. Spread on both slices of bread. Toast in a 350-degree oven until cheese is melted.


Bits of Brittle Pie

Pie Filling: 9 oz. graham cracker crust, ½ gallon of vanilla ice cream, softened; ½ bag of toffee bits. Spoon half of ice cream in crust and top and sprinkle half of toffee bits on. Top with rest of ice cream and freeze.
