My, my, my, this was a FEAST! In honour of some good friends getting engaged, they hosted a group of people at their house – how does that work exactly? Shouldn’t it have been the other way around? – anyways, they fed us all so much food I’m not sure anyone needed to eat the following day. The theme was Southern BBQ and everything was hearty, meaty and saucy . Wait until you see this menu!
Let’s start with the appetizers…
The spinach and artichoke dip with Tortilla chips was savoury and cheesy. Two very high ranking food qualities in my world!
Then there were maple, dijon & bacon chicken wings….yup, bacon grease used to cook the wings. Check!
I contributed some good old BBQ Stuffed Jalapenos. Tried, tested and delicious.
Cheese and crackers and other nibbley things scattered the table. My first of more than one plate of appetizers….
Now onto the main course…..not that there was much real estate left in my stomach.
Ribs. Enough said.
There was mac and cheese too – it had a delightfully crispy bread crumb topping and nice zesty cheese flavour.
Can’t forget the homemade cheddar, bacon and jalapeno cornbread….
And the coleslaw…to go with the pulled pork…
There’s still more! The Baked Beans, were excellent, I’m definitely making them!
I didn’t get an individual shot of the pulled pork, but that part they contracted out to The Smoque Shack. Dynamite, as usual. And super fresh buns only improved the situation.
Here is a shot of all the main course goodness:
My plate. Isn’t gluttony grand?
At this point I was a blimp. But wait, there’s more. It’s just not a Southern BBQ dinner party without multiple desserts.
Like Cookie dough cheesecake, for example.
And fruit! There was at least one healthy aspect to the evening!
And squares…. I believe these were also cheesecake, but I can’t confirm because there is just noway a person can consume all this food.
And last but not least……Skittles!
Such a fun and delicious night!
