Well, guys -- thanks a bunch for all of your help. My Caribbean Island dinner went off quite well.
It began a bit nerve wracking, as I didn't anticipate that it would take me two hours! to fry up enough plantains for 4-5 people, but things ended up just swell.
Plantain chips with habanero crab dip
Jerk chicken and shrimp kabobs
Veggie kabobs with citrus marinade
Jamaican red beans & rice
and for dessert...
Bananas foster cheesecake with rum sauce
My hubby brought home a CD of Caribbean music, and we danced and grilled and ate and talked until midnight. It was delightful.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions and inspirations!!
YUM!!!!! Sounds like you throw an awesome party! I don't suppose you have all those recipes on MasterCook, which are easily downloadable?! (Is that even a word?!)Getting ready for 4th of July at the beach...banana pina coladas sound awesome too! I think I need to run out and get a battery operated blender!So glad you posted! Any suggestions for Mom's 60th birthday party? You sound like the Martha Stewart of Cooking Light!!!LOL
