….being invited over for dinner on a Saturday night! Gail put on a lavish spread while we watched the Belmont races and cheered on Mine that Bird and Chocolate Candy. I was rooting for the longshot but Summer Bird came from behind for the win, very exciting!
…. a mint julep with the race…
…. snacking on Fire and Ice pineapple…
….Oscar watched the race too, with one eye open….
…. Gail’s spicy black bean soup….
…. with all the fixings….
…. and two kinds of cornbread! Muffins with creamed corn, and spicy cheesy cornbread wedges. Hard to pick a favorite here…
…. healthy berry dessert tart, and Dottie’s biscotti!!!
…. a gift of yarn and a carpet bag, how nice! Can’t wait to start knitting on my secret project with this yarn! Thanks Gail (((hug)))
Fire and Ice Pineapple
A fresh pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped into chunks
1 t red chile flakes
1/2 c chopped mint
Arrange pineapple in a serving dish, sprinkle with chile flakes and mint, and serve with toothpicks. So easy, and so delicious!
