First of all, we all had a great time!! Bente was kind enough to come over the day before and help with all the prep work. It was alot of fun to just cook and shoot the sh&t. Terry is such a great guy and a lot of fun to cook with. We made a couple of pinapplestuffed jerk pork loins, coleslaw, sausage stuffed mushies, cardamom-lime wings, Mango salsa, Coconut macaroons; some with chocolate, grape-pinapple & chilisauce meatballs, apricot-dijon meatballs, And hot buttered rum.
Bente brought some pulled pork, which brought rave reviews! Vidalia1 brought some awesome bean dip(rapidly disappearing) & some angel food cake, B & C and Richard brought some delicious broccoli salad with craisons. We had Hawaiian ribs, several types of chicken, coconutcake, potato salad, ham and cumin wraps, chocolate chips, brownies, bowtie pasta, chicken salad dip. I know that I am forgeting some items that some brought and/or mixing up who brought what, but the main thing is, we had such a great time with all of our friends. Gail& Mike, and Ruth from Southern Patio also came(wonderful people).
Kim brought his pot...grabber :woohoo: and helped move my eggs onto their new cooking deck. That grabber is absolutely cool! Kim was pretty buff after moving those two eggs. So I can now close in on some finishing details of my OD kitchen.
We had a really great time telling jokes and stories about each other and just getting to know everyone a little bit better. We could not have asked for a better bunch a people to show up! We had 27 people show up. I am hoping that we'll get the same & some more folks for the chili party in Nov., Plan now!
