One of the things we enjoy about our gatherings is the food! The hostess plans the main menu and the other two girls fill in with breakfast items, fruits or veggies, chips/dip/salsa, and various sweets. Here is a sample of what we ate:
K’s Peach Salsa
1 Jar Red Roasted Bell Peppers, diced
3 Large Peaches, diced – Nectarines can also be used
Red Onion, diced
1-2 Jalapenos, diced
1/2 Bunch Cilantro, chopped
Juice of 1 Lime
Salt and pepper, to taste
Add all ingredients to a large bowl and stir well.
Season with salt and pepper.
Serve with tortilla chips.
Meat Master M grilled a whole beef tenderloin!
Just in case you are wondering; 6 adults and a first grader can polish off all that delectable beef in one sitting!
J sauteed green beans and mushrooms to go with the tenderloin.
Saturday night we had an All American Grill Out … hamburgers, brats, sweet corn, watermelon, garden veggies and more!
Miss J and K both confessed to the fact neither of them can get banana bread to turn out! I guess I will have to carry the burden of being the Chocolate Chip Banana Bread baker in the group. They also keep me around for my farm fresh eggs!
It is a treat to cook with “the girls”, try new foods, and enjoy the company of great people. Labor Day Post Part 2 coming on Wednesday.
