Good Friends, Good Food and Good Times!
Well, I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! I know we did. It is always a good time when you can hang out with your best friends and enjoy an afternoon of (dairy free)food and fun! It was not my kitchen this time, so I will not take credit for this one, but it was our great friends in Macon, GA who showed us such a great time! The men wanted steaks! I guess since the two of them put up with the ladies "girlie" food all the time, they got what they wanted and we had what we wanted! Cat had it all planned out. She made great Turkey burgers loaded with lots of veggies and a side of wild rice salad with garbanzo beans and peppers! It was so good. Now I am the queen of measuring when I cook. It is a bit OCD of me (I like to think it is the baker in me-since that it what I like to do the most), but Cat is the polar opposite of me in that department (I think that is the only part we differ in)! She likes to throw things in here and there. So, I will put down what I remember, but in her way of cooking it is all about how you feel at the time. I did not end up taking a picture of the food in the end, because you know when there is a hungry have to step back. However it was beautiful and delicious! Thank you to Jim and Cat for the good times!
