I thought a fun dinner to lighten the mood would be better than a sit-down formal meal. I decided on a Make-Your-Own Taco night. It worked out really well. I had big bowls full of condiments and sides, I made fresh corn, and used tomatoes from my Mom's garden. We had planned several games to keep everyone engaged and talking.
For dessert, I thought we may as well expand on the Make-Your-Own theme, and have a sundae bar. We had hot fudge, caramel, sprinkles, candy, whipped cream, cherries, and all sorts of toppings. I made these fun dessert cups to scoop the ice cream into.
