Here is our menu that we made this past weekend with comments. In our super club the hostess plans the menu and buys the ingredients, then we all cook together.
Crostini w/gorgonzola, carmelized onion and fig jam - 9/03
I was worried that this would be to "exotic" but it was a big hit with everyone. I didn't to the cooking on this, but it looked like a lot of work for an appitizer.
Shrimp on sugar cane w/rum glaze 08/03 - One of the best grilled shrimp recipies ever IMO! I did find the sugar cane swizzle sticks at Bristol Farms. We cut points into the ends to make them easier to skewer.
Wild rice cakes w/bacon 9/03 - Delicious. The flavors contrasted nicely with the sweet shrimp.
Spinach salad with necterines and spicy pecans 09/03 - Very easy to put together and a definate repeater. I think I'll double the nuts next time to keep some extra on hand.
Honey peach and black berry cobbler 7/03 - The topping never really resembled "course meal", but was perfect after being cooked. We served it with vanilla ice cream.
So many recipies, so little time....
