Steve's Birthday Party

The party went off with only a slight hitch...running out of chips at the nacho bar. Thankfully, Keshari made a chip run to Kroger for me.

The improvised nacho cheese dispenser worked great: a #10 can of cheddar cheese sauce, grandma's crock pot, and a condiment pump along with a variety of add-ons like beans, salsa, peppers and guacamole.

The kids enjoyed the Sno Cone machine. (I love those flower cups and spoon straws I found online.)

Keep 'em comin'.

All in all, the party was successful, but throwing a party is a lot of work, even for the pets. Here they are post-party.

  1. Lol! Awesome, wished I could have been there. I love the nacho cheese warmer - very clever.

  2. I knew the margaritas would be popular but I had no idea how big a hit the nacho bar would be. Heather is the hostess with the mostest.

  3. Thanks, Steve. Ed, I really wanted to rent an actual nacho cheese warmer (none available), but I think this ended up being an even better solution. Who knew the old fashioned crock pots are perfectly designed to hold a #10 can?

  4. Wow! I love the Nacho Cheese warmer! I was just literally searching to buy one on the cheap for a birthday!

    May I ask, where did u find the condiment pump?
