Food Friday: Backyard BBQ

Last weekend we hosted our 2nd Annual Backyard BBQ
Yes it was raining but that didn't keep us from still having a great time 
Today I'll share some of the food & menu that we did for the day
Crackers & Melba Toast served with Roasted Red Pepper dip
Veggie Tray with Renee's Buttermilk Ranch Dressing...seriously this stuff is SO much better than regular ranch dressing

Newfie Appetizers which I really didn't want to make but Kristen requested them
Main Course (this is where Kristen comes in since he's the bbq master at our house)
Preparing the passed Boone's inspection
Marinated and refrigerated overnight
The same with the beef roasts
Then the actual day of the bbq I forgot to take "after"'s the best I could do since I remembered way late.....
Oh and we had smoked salmon too
Sidedish Menu
Baked Potatoe Bar with topping choices of butter, plain sour cream, sour cream & chives, shredded cheese and crumbled bacon
Corn on the cob
Grilled green beans in butter & garlic
Dinner Rolls
Again I remembered to take a photo after the's the
Jen's Caramel Cheesecake, which I TOTALLY forgot to take a picture of and it was probably the hit of the party. Everyone who tried it loved it and I even sent out the recipe afterwards :)
Hey Dollies, this was Myrna's recipe. Again delicious!
And a healthier choice, a fruit tray of strawberries, clementines, mango and kiwi
Mmm....makes me want to go and prepare everything all over again. Yummy!

It's actually a Roasted Red Pepper dip. I bought it pre-made the grocery store, usually around the deli section :)
