Before you sit down and think of what kind of foods you can make for your 30th Anniversary, it is important here to mention that you can just do that by jotting down the traditional foods that you make the best and once you are done of that, you need to see whether you want to try them or would like to try something new.

For the 30th Anniversary, the different recipes that can be tried as an appetizer include Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips. The main course would be Baked Garlic Thyme Chicken, Macaroni and Cheese, and Honey Dijon Spinach Salad. And the Dessert would be Raspberry Cookies.

Then turn the breast side up and bake for another 35 minutes until it is tender. This recipe serves four people. Happy 30th Anniversary and lots of fun.

A FACE ONLY MAMA COULD LOVE: Each guest is asked to bring a baby picture of themselves. Upon arrival, the hostess takes the baby picture and arranges the picture onto a poster board. Under each picture, she assigns a number. Each guest gets a piece of paper and is told to match the adult guest name with the corresponding baby picture. example: Aunt Sue is baby number 3....etc. Each guest puts down all of their guesses and the guest with the most correct matches wins! This is a good ice breaker game. Don't forget to ask for the picture when you mail out the invitation! Lots more 30th Anniversary celebration thoughts here
