Dinner Party Idea

My current residence is not ideal for entertaining, but I made do. I look forward to the days when I'll have a house with designated entertaining space, both indoor and outdoor. {sigh} Until then, I'll be making lists of dinner parties I plan to hostess.

For a fun and casual evening, I think a southern-inspired menu is great. Ina Garten's Oven Fried Chicken recipe is perfect! It makes for chicken that is moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside, without the grease.
A mashed potato bar is a slightly more elegant version of the classic side. Simply whip up your favorite mashed potato recipe {I like this one} and dollop portions into martini glasses. Set out toppings and let your guests build their own side!

And for dessert: apple pie. It's a classic crowd pleaser. Buy it from the bakery or make your own. Serve it up with some ice cream or whipped cream. It's an ideal sweet finish to the evening.
