She decided to make French Dip Sandwiches Pasta Salad Strawberries and Red Pop/Root Beer Floats for dessert
We tweaked the recipes a bit (from the book), but Halle did all of the cutting for the salad, she layered all the sandwiches, set the table, and cleaned up after dinner.
It got a little hectic while we were fixing the sandwiches because you have to really watch them so they don't burn (I kind of burnt the first batch), so I forgot take any pictures of Halle hard at work.
Here are the recipes for the dinner Halle made:
French Dip Sandwiches
1 loaf Italian bread (in grocer's bakery)
1 lb Roast Beef- I had them cut it paper thin
Italian seasoning packet
Beef Boulion cubes
Slice loaf of bread in half. Smear butter on inside of both pieces of bread. Sprinkle Italian seasoning over bread. Stick on pan and broilon Low for 1-2 min or until a little crispy- really keep an eye on them. Remove from oven. Add roast beef and cheese to each half. Broil again for 1-2 min or until heated all the way through. Put both halves together, cut, and serve warm. *I wrapped my sandwiches in aluminun foil and put back in oven (turned off) to let stay warm.
Use Beef Boulion (directions on package) to make au jus sauce for dipping.
1 pkg. Tri-color pasta noodles
Cheese, cut into cubes
Cherry Tomatoes, cut in half
Onion, chopped finely
Broccoli, cut in pieces
Cook pasta as directed. Drain. Add all other ingredients- add as much or as little of veggies as you like. Pour Italian dressing over top, cover, and refrigerate until serving.
Buy strawberries at store. Cut in half. Sprinkle with sugar.
Root Beer Floats
1/2 gallon of Vanilla icecream
1 2 liter of Root Beer- A & W is the best!
Scoop icecream into glasses. Pour root beer over top. Enjoy!
