Fall is fast approaching, but we want to hold onto summer as long as we can. What says summer better than Lemons and Limes? You can host a Lemons and Limes party with minimal effort. It's EASY!
Send invitations with a list of suggestions for recipes for dishes using lemons and limes.
Tell people that the first four to respond get to choose if they want to bring a main dish, side or dessert and after that, you will assign categories. In reality, you just want to make sure that you don't have 10 people show up with lemon bars. If you want to have a small party, just send them the recipe once they RSVP. I find that 8 to 10 is the perfect number of people for us and our kitchen. I've had up to 30, but we like smaller, more intimate groups.
I have some suggestions below for recipes. If I have the recipe, I will link it, but some are pretty simple and you don't really need a recipe:
Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup
Chicken and Lime soup
Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken
cinnamon and lime chicken fajitas
Fresh Mango salsa
salad with cilantro lime dressing
roasted garlic lemon broccoli
lemon pepper veggies
skillet corn link to recipe
Let them come up with desserts.
Decorate your table with bowls of lemons and limes. Use bright yellow plates and cups.
What a refreshing party!
