Party Ideas

Recommended Posts

This weekend we are having a big birthday party for my husband, son and dtr. We will be having an bbq at the park with about 50 people. I want to make it all gluten free so I dont have to worry, since i will be making most of the food.

so far i have planned



hot dogs

baked beans that is made with bush beans (im hoping are gluten free), bacon, onion. mustard and hamburger

then a fruit salad made with frui cocktail, whip cream, marshmellows, jello and coconut

and chips

i wanted 2 other side dishes but i cant think of anything else that is gluten free and that will last outisde in warm weather.

any help would be appreciated


gluten, casein and soy free

on low carb/low sugar diet

You already have beans but here's a bean salad that holds up in the warmest conditions. How about a cucumber salad?

Grilled asparagus. Wrap asparagus in foil (maybe with some salt or gluten-free soy sauce) and cook on the grill. Also grilled corn on the cob is good.

Tomato, fresh basil, fresh mozzarella salad with a bit of balsamic dressing.

Veggies with a hummus dip.

Complete side note to this - if you entertain often in heat I highly recommend Pampered Chef's Chillzanne collection. I have the large & small bowl and the Vegetable Server. You freeze them, and the gel inside freezes...they keep the food cold for 4 hours. They work GREAT. The veggie serve has a removable tray that freezes. One side is flat, one side has egg divots in it for devilled eggs. I WAS a rep - so I make no money for this advertising LOL :D But they are GREAT GREAT GREAT inventions for parties, that is for sure!!!
