Your campus, Your story

It’s that time of year again – the semester is starting to wind down (although it hardly seems like it), and the promise of a sweet, sweltering summer is just around the corner.
I’m sure you all know about the magical anticipation I’m talking about. But, for many, the entrance into the summer of 2017 is not just a celebration of upcoming fun in the sun, but of graduation.
Who doesn’t love a good graduation party? The question is, most importantly, what kind of food will you have?
Are you having your graduation party in the morning, mid-day or evening/night? Are you having a sit-down meal, lots of standing room or a come and go as you please? That, of course, is up to you, but if you’re stuck as to what in the world to serve to your adoring guests, look no further.
Breakfasts and Brunches
Breakfast food is arguably some of the best out there. Sweet, savory, spicy, you name it, it comes in a delectable morning form. If you’re graduating during the later parts of the day and hope to kick off your special day right, here are some some fantastic bites to help celebrate your tremendous accomplishment.
Breakfast Egg Bites
If you want to do mini quiches instead, simply cut circles of pie crust and put into the bottoms of your tins. Beat eggs with milk, cheese, and your veggies and meat before putting them into the oven. Bake for just a few minutes longer.
Lunch has always been a perfect for graduation parties, as it tends to be lighter and simpler to conjure up. If you’re doing a lunch grad party, try switching it up a little with some fresh ideas!
Mini cucumber sandwiches:
Dinner hosts possibly the most options for graduation parties, as there are about a million different recipes out there for hors d’oeuvres – not that you can’t use those for lunch, too!
Paula Deen’s Shrimp Creole Tarts:
They’re delicious and super simple, but it seems like you’ve been slaving away in the kitchen all day!
