surf n turf
We had our somewhat annual surf n turf party on Saturday. I say somewhat because we couldn't agree on a date last year, so we had to skip it, but we did have it for a couple consecutive years before that. The menu was similar to prior years: king crab legs, prosciutto wrapped scallops, beef tenderloin, stuffed mushrooms, garlic bread, and confetti chopped salad. For dessert was biscotti and key lime parfaits. This year, it was just the three of us and our parents, but the guest list can also vary from year to year. I didn't make the desserts, but I did cook the rest of the food on the grill, as usual. It's a challenge scheduling all of the cooking times, but I pretty much have that down pat at this point. This year, I chose a non-cooked veggie side dish to make things slightly easier on myself. Anyway, I think the party was a hit and I'm sure we'll be doing it again next year.
