Kentucky Derby Party!

Yesterday a few of my girlfriends and I enjoyed the most exciting few minutes of horse racing together.  I can find any excuse to throw a party,and the derby not only provides a great party theme but also the chance to wear big hats!

I tried to keep the menu for the derby party  a bit southern.  The menu included a hot lemon and crab dip, salmon balls with herbed mayonnaise,  cream cheese wrapped in crescent, cantaloupe wrapped with prosciutto, and mini corn bread muffins with bacon, cheddar cheese and chives.  And of course, mint juleps were the drink of choice (ok, so we had to add some Sprite and let the ice melt down haha!).

About Hang Onto Your Fork

I am just a girl who loves to cook. I am happiest when friends and/ or family are sitting around my table enjoying a meal and sharing stories and laughter! I noticed myself spending a lot of time reading recipe sites, food blogs and cook books and finally decided to get in on the action! I am very much an amateur cook, and through the last couple of years have learned a lot through trial and error. So, I would like to invite you to join in my culinary triumphs and laugh at my kitchen disasters! I welcome any tips/ advice/ and comments that you may have!
