Pony Party Menu Ideas
Suggestions for what to feed the kids at a pony party
Having a barbecue is an obvious choice for any Western style party, but don't get too
fancy with the kids, they'll be fine with hamburgers. If you want to try something a
little off the cuff, serve hamburgers with little piles of "hay" (shoestring potatoes).
Here are some other menu choices for your chuck wagon:
- Cowboy up to something different. Who says you have to serve a lunch or dinner?
Try breakfast fare! Cowboys loved bacon and eggs with coffee. While the kids
won't go for the coffee, you can make them chocolate milk for the "coffee" and
serve it in tin mugs. Throw in a few flap jacks. Breakfast is a less expensive
option than other meals. Don't worry about the time you serve it. Kids love
having breakfast for dinner.
- Wagon Wheel pasta salad: Try your favorite pasta dish with wagon wheel shaped
pasta. Don't get too fancy for the kids, though, as most love the standard Mac N
- Hitch a wagon: Serve an ordinary sandwich with some fanfare. Hitch a plastic
horse to a wagon tray you make from cardboard. You can "glue" some licorice
wheels to the box with icing, licorice ropes for the reigns, and skewers to
hitched the wagon. Call them chuck wagon sandwiches! Author Jenny Dodd
makes a wagon tray from sandwiches piled high on a tinfoil, with tomato wheels.
Pictured on page 27, see more cowboy recipe ideas in her book on Google.
- Cookie cutter design sandwiches: If you cut sandwiches like a cookie, you'll waste
lots of bread, but here's how to cut out the waste... Start by slathering a slice of
bread with strawberry jam and set it aside. Now cut a fresh slice of bread with a
horse shoe horse-shoe shaped cookie cutter so as to keep the integrity of the
bread. Carefully cut the horse-shoe shape using a knife so that you frame the
design. Set aside the horseshoe piece and now work with the frame to coat it in
peanut butter. Now marry peanut butter slice over the jelly half, so that the
horse shoe pattern shoe shows with strawberry jam. You may choose to make
smaller sandwiches by marrying the horse shoe Try other cookie cutter shapes
too, such as cowboy hats and boots, cacti or sheriff's stars designs.
- Horseshoe-shaped biscuits: (serve with fried chicken and corn on the cob). Use
your favorite biscuit recipe to make the dough, then cut into horse shoe or other
horse theme shapes using a cookie cutter. Or bake biscuits on a stick on an
open flame, cowboy style.
- Have a weenie roast: Turn lunch into an activity by having party-goers prepare
their own hot dogs on a stick, cowboy style. Hot dogs and baked beans are the
staple of any true cowboy, but make sure to use cowboy vernacular and call
them "little doggies." You can also bake biscuits by wrapping the dough around
the stick and cooking them in the fire.
- S'mores without the fire: For a quick treat minus the outdoor heat, place a
graham cracker square on a plate with a marshmallow and a slice of chocolate
then microwave it for 15-20 seconds. Top with a graham square to make the
traditional S'mores sandwich without the hassle of a real campfire. For
decorations, you can make an artificial campfire, like the one used for boy scout
- Gorp (Good Old Raisins and Peanuts): Before the stampede at the chuck wagon,
serve up the party snack mix. We have the recipe for gorp and other saddle
snacks for your hungry posse.
