Preparing for the PB&J Party

May 12, 2008 at 3:06 am Leave a comment

The Sassy Chef can’t have an ordinary housewarming party, which is why I am throwing a PB&J party at the end of the month.  This weekend, I worked on the menu.  I’ve decided I need a couple of appetizers, a couple of main course items, and a couple of desserts.  The stuff needs to be easy to prepare because I don’t have a lot of time, cookware, or space to prep stuff beforehand or even the day of the event.  It also needs to be fairly easy for guests to eat.  I’m going to have about 25 people here, and there won’t be a lot of room for fussy food that requires a fork and knife.

I plan to use Smart Balance Omega Peanut Butter in all the recipes along with many of my normal substitutions (Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Unsweetened, Vanilla, Smart Balance Omega Light buttery spread, sugar-free/no-sugar-added preserves when available, etc.) to make the items a little healthier. 

Should be fun!

Appetizers under consideration

  • Celery sticks filled with chunky PB swirled with mango chutney
  • Whole wheat hot dog buns spread with spicy PB and pineapple preserves, cut into bite size chunks with the ends discarded
  • PB&J popcorn balls

Entrees under consideration

  • Mixed green salad with lots of veggies and diced chicken breast, served with a choice of zesty PB vinaigrette or pepper jelly vinaigrette
  • PB Steakhouse Chili, warmed in the slow cooker and served with sides of cornbread drizzled with jalapeno jelly

Desserts under consideration

  • PB&J cupcakes
  • PB&J thumbprint cookies
  • Mini tartlets filled with PB mousse topped with raspberry preserves
  • PB&J dessert pizza
