I thought about having a Hunger Games themed meal but since I'm all out of poisonous berries and couldn't find any mockingjay birds at Walmart, I went with a more mainstream selection. I got rave reviews on the food so I thought I should post it so that you can make yourself some and be unhungry like me.
I served the other ladies this raspberry chipotle sauce, which is perfect for sandwich dipping.
I sliced sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch strips to resemble McDonalds' fries. I sprinkled them with Spicy Chipotle Ms. Dash, sea salt, and garlic powder and baked them for 30 minutes on 425 (flipped half-way through). I think they could have been cooked longer for additional crispness but we ran out of time since we needed to get to the theater.
And because I'm a good hostess and because Elizabeth and I don't want to inflict our crazy on everyone else, Elizabeth made sugar cookie bars with icing and sprinkles.
After dinner we headed to the theater, which was packed, of course.
I may or may not have had a purse full of contraband air popped popcorn.
I woke up this morning and had a face-off with the leftover sugar-cookie bars, but luckily the Tiny Princess was happy to take care of them for me.
