Party Time Recipes, Shrimp, Marinade for Ham and Chicken Kabobs, Triple Berry Cheesecake, and More Appetizers


New York Style Cheese Cake with Triple Berries!

Well I had to wait until after the New Year's to give my hubby a real party. This is the menu for his Birthday party. It's tough being born on New Year's Eve, not a good day to travel. Being it was a milestone birthday, I had to cook up his favorites for our family and friends this evening... so here is what we are having for his 40th birthday! Recipes are the highlighted links below just click on them!
  
Fruit and Cheese Kabobs with Lime Dipping Sauce
Crockpot Grape Cocktail Meatballs

Teriyaki Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Chicken Buffalo Skewers and Ham and Pineapple Kabobs


All the above kabobs are highlighted sites are for the marinades used for these kabobs. The recipes on the site to marinate these were for a minimum of 3 hours or overnight before grilling. Grill as your would normal. Indoor or outdoor grilling.

What a spread! It all looks delicius! I was curious why you had the meatballs in a plastic bag inside the crock pot (if I interpreted the photos correctly)? Wondered if there would be a 'tip' in doing that?! Hope the celebration was great.
