First Car Show and BBQ of the Season

This past weekend was the first car show of the year! I wanted to have a BBQ the day before for everyone.  It was so fun. I love getting everyone together and hosting is fun.  My favorite part is planning what I am going to make. 

To go with the normal BBQ hamburgers and hotdogs, I decided to make pulled BBQ chicken sandwiches, (bought) potato salad and baked beans, made a few dips, and some simple easy to eat desserts. 

I didn’t picture the usual boring stuff, but here are the snacks/desserts.IMG_5087 IMG_5088I made mini fruit pizza cups.


  • Sugar cookie dough
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 container of cool whip
  • Fruit of your choice
  1. Spray a cupcake pan so they do not stick and then place cookie dough in, pressing against the edges. Bake as directed.  They will poof up, but then fall back down and form little cups after they come out of the oven.
  2. Fill with cream cheese/cool whip mixture
  3. Add fruit

Everyone seemed to really like them! I wasn’t fast enough so I missed out :)

I did get to eat a few of the Mini Banana Bites though. These were just large vanilla wafers, banana pudding, cool whip and a banana slice.  SO easy. Delicious.

Then there was just two 7 layer dips and an artichoke dip.

This was Bora’s first time around that many cars and people.  She was shy, but did well.  Hopefully she will get used to it and can come to a few more over the summer.image3IMG_5124     I am so happy everyone was able to come out and it was a great start to the season!
