Seems like I've been blessed with lots of good food and parties of late. Here are my reviews.....all of these treats were new to me:
Brownies made with black beans.....even Ghiradelli makes a mix for those who want some fiber in their dessert. I give the brownies we tried a C plus rating. They were ultra moist...but not very sweet.
Friends of friends have a new smoker . They smoked just about everything you could smoke for their last party. They offered us a sample of their BACON EXPLOSION.
Explosion is layers of bacon with italian sausage pressed into the layers...smoked until...well heavenly . I give the bacon explosion an A minus. It was a tad greasy, but nothing one couldnt help along by blotting it first. The taste was outstanding.
3) I had chicken thighs marinated in garlic, lime juice and walnuts in a paste. I would have preferred chicken breasts and white meat, then it would have gotten an A plus. Thighs just taste fatty to me, because they have more fat and I'm not a dark meat fan. The marinade paste was outstanding, however. I will try it with white meat.
a pineapple cilantro onion and cucumber salad.
It was lacking in something. Fresh enough but kind of blah. The flavors didn't meld. I'll not make this again.
Any thing new on your plates?? Good, bad? Want to share?? (and because it is a knitting blog: I plan to make these adorable pocket socks)
