We had done this once before -but it had been too long. Our bedrooms upstairs have their own bathrooms in them, so it's kind of like a hotel room. So our Dinner Group friends came for the weekend.
It started Friday evening with a Barbeque Rib dinner that Randy and I prepared. Then after dinner we watched a movie, and then, before going to bed we begin preparation for the next day's event. We came up with 3 meats, 3 vegetables and 3 starches and put them in a bowl to do a drawing the next day. Saturday, after a leisurely breakfast (a recipe from Pintrest - Creme Brulee French Toast) and LOTS of coffee we sat down to draw our ingredients for our first ever "DINNER GROUP COOKOFF".
Here's the ingredients that we pulled......................(can't get the pic to turn)
Dinner was fabulous ........................and the Boys team won :( The meals were judged by each dish: meat, vegetable and starch, and also by plating.
The evening was finished off with Marla's AMAZING Lemon Meringue cupcakes, (filled with fresh homemade lemon curd) - the BESTEST cupcake I've EVER had, with a small scoop of Raspberry Sorbet.
Fun was had by all and NO ONE went home hungry!! :)
P.S. Parsnips are good!!
