My Long Awaited Asian Dinner Party!



                    
Saturday, Jan 29th I hosted an Asian Dinner Party.
I served cuisine from 4 different countries: Japan, Korea, Thailand, and China. The food was buffet style and the party was laid back and fun! Annie Chun's All Natural Asian Cuisine sponsored the party and provided thank you gifts and sauces, rice, and noodles for me to use in my dishes. We had 20 guests attend and served 13 dishes! I was lucky enough to have my wonderful Mom and Grandma drive down (8 hours!) to help with my party and my awesome Aunt and Uncle who helped cook and clean up.
 I love my family!
