    My wife is having her 60th birthday so I invited her best friends. I'm doing 24+ lbs of pork sholder (pulled). Here's the menu.

    Appetizers;
    Pig shots, potato and tortilla chips, pimento cheese dip, taco dip, stuffed mushrooms, smoked salmon, veggie tray, grapes and watermelon.

    Main course;
    Rolls, Pulled pork, coleslaw, cheese potatoes, home made baked beans, Coke jello salid,Beer, grapes, carrot salad,

    Desert;
    Apple bars, pumpkin bread, bars and Chocolate triffle. (She wants NO cake and no "60" candle!)

    Drinks;
    Water, soda, assorted beers and wines, whiskey old fashion.

    So the evening will be full of crying babies, fighting kids and lots of love and kisses

    Sounds good and GOOD CALL on not doing the candles. We put 65 individual candles on my MIL's B-day cake. That much heat vaporized all the Wax. The entire surface of the cake was on fire with a huge single flame!...JJ

    Now that sounds like the makings of a great B-Day Party!! The menu sounds like a feast.
    But, if your wife says "No candles", I figure you should have at least one vulture out on the lawn, looking in. LOL

    That was a perfect opportunity to add marshmallows to the dessert menu. :emoji_laughing:
