Besides the food items I made there was also tri-tip, fried chicken wings, Thai salmon curry, Asian noodle salad, fish salad, Chinese Chicken Salad, grilled skewered chicken and shrimp, Salmon egg rolls, dim sum items (home made), and a bunch more food items that I can't even remember along with cookies and 2 cakes..lots and lots of wine, beer, soda etc.
There were at least 75 people if not more that attended and everyone had a wonderful time and got to take home boxes of left overs.
Karen's sisters in law and sister stayed until the very end helping us clean up. We sat around until midnight winding down and drinking wine all the while poor Gil, Karen's husband was doing more dishes. After everyone left we helped Gil put away even more of the left overs and Karen and I went to bed leaving Gil with more clean up. He's such a good guy doing so much work! I think I fell into a coma as soon as I hit the bed.
Of course the next morning we munched on leftovers.. I've never been so full in my life!
Now the family is off to China in a few days.. I wish I got kind of a grad gift!
