And a funny thing happened. I'd made some Tequila Lime Chicken, and had brought my trusty George Foreman grill with me so I could cook the chicken on the spot. And had my camera out to take pictures so I could share the end result here, and when people saw the camera, they knew I was going to be taking pictures of all of the food. So I did. And I know I missed a couple of dishes, but, hey, I was there to PARTY!! just kidding. At any rate, here's an overview of most of the food we enjoyed yesterday. (and I will share the Tequila Lime Chicken recipe here later on this week)
Honestly, there are so many fantastic cooks here, it's a wonder we don't all weigh thousands of pounds apiece.
Chips and Cheese dips, Wisconsin Pepper Jack. Tequila Chicken, No bakes cookies, Mexican Caviar, chips, a big ol' pitcher of Sangria, blue corn chips, hummus dip, and hiding under cover, a squash casserole.
Above, another yummy rice dish, and to the left here, my quickie Salsa (I will be sharing the how-to's on that later on this week) No Bakes, Mexican Caviar, Strawberries and Grapes, and Cheese Dip.
And I forgot to take a picture of the cakes I made cause we had a few people who were celebrating birthdays as well. OK, so I didn't 'forget' to take a picture of the cakes, I'm not much of a cake decorator so they were just some frosted Chocolate Cakes, but they did disappear. Thank heavens people didn't let my lack of decorating skill stop them from eating the cakes.
And there you have it, our post Cinco de Mayo wrap up. I'll be sharing the recipes for the Tequila Lime Chicken and the Salsa later on this week.
