Sarah's Graduation Party Food (Free!)

Food always tastes better when it's homemade and free unless it's my world famous microwaved quesadillas made with Kraft Singles that everyone always makes fun of me for. Ok, so I'm no chef but my Uncle Dave and Aunt Debbie are. This weekend we celebrated my little cousin Sarah's high school graduation with a party and lots and lots of home cooked food.

My cousin Sarah and the cake

Uncle Dave Mixing the Fettuccine

BBQ Chicken for the Fettuccine

The Homemade Sausage and Peppers Pizza

The first of many of my trips to the counter of food

I kind of just mixed everything together since it all goes to the same place, right? Oh, my Aunt Debbie makes the best Chinese Chicken Salad.
I always enjoy getting together with my alternative universe Mexican family because they're the ones that took care of me and fed me growing up. I've had plenty of dinners with people I couldn't stand and I can tell you that food always tastes better when you're with people you like.

Taste ------------- (10) Friends and Family are the best side dishes
Presentation ---- (10) Great but Uncle Dave needs central air. It gets hot.
Price ------------- (10) The only way it'd be better is if they'd paid me to eat.
Availability ------ (2) I'll have to wait till the next big event.
Quantity --------- (10) Unlimited always has its consequences
Satisfaction ----- (10) Happy as a clam. I never understood that saying.

I stuffed myself to the point of no return because I knew all I had waiting for me at the apartment was shredded wheat and 2 frozen burger patties. I slept good that night.
