Yellow Party- Part 3, The Food

So cooking is not my strength so the food for this party wasn't extraordinary, but we did do a few fun things.  Creed really wanted a yellow dinner so we had different flavors of yellow Italian soda and flavored water with yellow packaging (should I admit that I didn't even care what the flavors were as long as they were yellow? At least they turned out to be good)
Then we had pineapple and a few different kinds of yellow soup (which I bought): chicken curry, crab and corn bisque, and chicken corn chowder, and cornbread.  And for some reason it was important to me to have jello there.  Creed doesn't even like jello much, but in Ohio Cat always had jello at all the family celebrations (only she made it from scratch with gelatin and fruit juice) and having some sort of jello just seemed like having a little part of her here.  We made jello jigglers and poured them into hollowed out lemons so they looked sort of like real lemon slices.
And for dessert we had tiny pies in jars again.  Creed LOVES pie so I knew he'd rather have pie than cake, and the great thing about these pies is that I could make them days ahead of time and freeze them and just put them in the oven as we were starting dinner (I I could recruit Lisa to help me make them all).
I made little pinwheels with Creed's pictures to put in all the pies.

I hope his wish comes true!

I love that he's obsessed with yellow too. I was beginning to wonder if our little guy was color blind or something. There should never be a time in Creed's life that he wonders if he's loved!

How many times am I allowed to exclaim just how creative I think you are? I'm up to 3.7 trillion . . .

Creed has good taste in favorite colors. Yellow is mine, too. With a pinch of orange thrown in.

Clever decorations. Clever food. I must get your pie in a jar recipe.
