Farm House-Style Holiday Entertaining Menu

From the meatball appetizer to the chocolate cake, this is a real down-home meal. The pork and the corn casserole cook in the same oven, so cook the corn longer than called for in the recipe -- it's at a lower temperature than if you made it on its own. The menu serves 8 to10 adults: that would translate into 6 adults and 6 or so young children if they eat like most kids do when they're at a party and are distracted by everything around them.
