Melissa and Trey

Love was in the air at Quail Hollow on Saturday night as friends and family gathered to celebrate the engagement of Melissa and Trey. The weather was perfect and everyone had a wonderful time. Check out the video!

Our Southern menu included:
Southern Fried Chicken

As for the chicken, we bought it, but everything else was prepared by Nan and me. Now, all of you know that I use my blog for a handy reference to recipes and events, and the rest of this post is for those wondering just how much food you need to serve 50 - 60.
  • Fried Chicken Strips - 75 pieces
  • Tomato Grits - 6 recipes. Many came back for seconds and there was very little left.
  • Black-eyed Pea Salad - 1 1/2 recipes. I made 2 recipes and had plenty of leftovers.
  • Broccoli Slaw -
  • Sweet Pickles - 1 quart
  • Enhanced Brownies - 4 - 5 recipes. We made 5 and had some leftovers.
