Pioneer Woman Potluck Party

Earlier this week I hosted a Pioneer Woman Potluck Party for some of my blogging friends who love the Pioneer Woman as much as I do.
I got the idea from my friend Julie, when she had one a few months ago!
Each person brought a PW dish & I had them email me what they were bringing so there were no duplicates.
Here is the menu close up:
I have made a TON of PW's recipes & amazingly, I hadn't had any of the ones that people were bringing, so I was so excited to try some recipes that I hadn't made before!
First up, drinks...served out of mason jars, of course!
I was in charge of drinks, which consisted of Chardonnay, Sparkling Water, Sparkling Lemonade & The PW's Watermelon Granita.

The Watermelon Granita was SO good. It tasted like a Watermelon snow cone. It is basically watermelon, lime juice & sugar blended up & frozen. The day of the party was hot, so this was a perfectly refreshing drink. (I also had Watermelon Rum on had in people wanted to add it to their Watermelon Granita)
Some of us added Sparkling Lemonade to the Watermelon Granita & that was also really yummy!
Appetizers:
All of the appetizers were delicious!
Next was the salad course:


Again, all of them were amazing!
By this time, we were all totally stuffed, but there was still more food to be eaten!

Finally we were ready for the "main course" which was Spicy Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork.
All the fixings:
These were so good!
And, we can't forget about the desserts...we had FIVE to eat!
I made these...Amazing. Brownies with caramel, pecans & chocolate chips. YES.
One word to describe all the food:
Group shot:
It was a fun night filled with good food & good people!
If you are a PW fan, I highly recommend having a PW Potluck Party!

  12. I first saw this on Julie's blog too and now with yours I'm inspired to have one too. Everything looks so good. Looks like you all had a wonderful time and I'm sure I'll be referring back for when I host my own. Thanks for sharing. Oh, btw, I have made that pulled pork before but mine never shreds that easily. Do you think I'm doing something wrong, any tips or special techniques!?
