Buffet Party Menu: Late-Summer Celebration

Summer_Buffet

Setting up a buffet is the most kid-friendly way to entertain, and is sure to please everyone’€”even picky eaters will find something to like with a table full of tasty options. Food is self-serve, paper plates are totally acceptable, and the menu is usually made of up make-ahead items, or those that can be cooked quickly at the last minute.
I always host a small party to say farewell to summer, and while I begin the season with a Canada Day party and burger bar, I like to end it with something simpler. Here’€™s my ideal buffet party menu for late summer, a make-ahead feast that can be prepped a day or so in advance, and warmed just before serving.

MAIN DISH:

Pulled pork sandwiches are hit with almost everyone. Set up the items self-serve style and let your guests build their own sandwiches.

SIDE DISHES:

Choose two or three of the following options, but be sure to pick at least one ‘fresh’ item to help offset the richness of the main dish.

DRINKS:

To make things easy on yourself, serve pitchers instead of individual portions’€”except for beer’€”and be sure to offer at least one alcoholic and one non-alcoholic beverage.

DESSERT:

Keep things simple and serve a seasonal dessert like pie, crisps, crumbles or bars’€”store-bought is fine’€”topped with vanilla ice cream. Or make the easiest cake ever that’s sure to please the entire crowd.
