Getting the party started

My neighbor's son is graduating from college tomorrow and she was having sticker shock from the quotes she was getting to cater the party.  My wife, being the generous soul that she is, said, "Dave will do it!"  And of course I was rubbing my hands together at the thought.  I said, "Give me a budget and consider it done!"  Sounds like there will be anywhere from 25 - 30 college age adults and a few of us geezers.  Taking the college age kids into account, what should I cook for, 50?  LOL

Just when you think everything is running smoothly.....

Got a phone call from my neighbor saying that the graduation was over early and everyone was headed over to the house.  (This was 1 1/2 hours before the previously reported party start time.  And I only mention this because I really planned on doing a much better photo shoot of the whole spread.  As it got a little crazy after the call, the photos didn't happen like I would have liked.  Here is what I had taken before the phone rang.

Stuffed Mushrooms

Smoked Beans With Sausage & Bacon

Mac & Cheese


Brisket

Pulled Pork
