We were invited to a birthday party for this guy. He was turning three.
The invitation said, Low Country Boil. I thought what an interesting idea. This menu may be my new favorite way to entertain.
First, it is very easy to prepare. Second, it looks fantastic on the table. Third, clean up is easy. Fourth, no utensils except something to crack the crab legs.
They also had hot dogs, hamburgers and chips. But who needed it!!!
The lovely hostess handing out pina coladas... Yum
I made my hamburger cupcakes for this party but I wasn't done. I also made some sugar cookie french fries. I simply took refrigerator sugar cookie dough, rolled it out and cut into fries. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes.
Sprinkle with sugar.
Don't they look like fries.
