Kentucky Derby 2016 Party

Tyler and I love the Kentucky Derby and have tried to host a party each year. This year, we had a great group and enjoyed lots of Owen's cocktails (check out the amazing menus my hubby made!) and yummy southern appetizers.
I made mini chicken and waffle sliders....I bought mini egos and chicken nuggets and added a dollop of maple syrup. Such a hit and super easy to make!

We of course had lots of cheese...this crowd loves a good cheese platter!
 I also made a baked brie with kahlua, brown sugar, and pecans. I also made pulled pork for mini sandwiches and the most delicious mac and cheese I've ever made. Instead of using elbow macaroni, I used a larger spiral noodle so they could soak up all of the cheese. Sadly I forgot to take pictures!
Tyler also organizes a betting wall each year. We used the glass pens my sister-in-law gave us and drew up the betting board on our giant mirror.
 Some of the remaining boys on our roof enjoying a few beverages.
Sunday night dinner done right....I made lamb chops (I added an extra garlic glove and used lemon zest from a whole lemon) with caramelized onion and snap peas with quinoa. Delicious!
