Starting Off with a Bang!

by Cate on July 19, 2005

Supper Club is tomorrow and it took me FOREVER to whittle down my pile of possible recipe contributions. I have a separate Supper Club folder, where I stick recipes that I think would make a great addition to the Supper Club table. Not that any recipe won’t work, but I also look for things that are easily transported, can be reheated if necessary, etc. And when it’s at our house, I look for things that I want to make for Supper Club, but that are easier for me to make when I’m hosting (i.e., fondue, punch, etc.).

With all of us bringing multiple dishes, sometimes lugging everything, depending on choices, can be quite cumbersome. So, this afternoon, I had my stack down to about 30 and I was having the hardest time culling from there. I was also trying to pick out recipes that were low in the prep factor, because tomorrow’s going to be a busy day. We’re getting some furniture delivered, and have another thing planned (shh! more to follow tomorrow), so I wanted to make sure to not make myself crazier than usual. No more burning the candles at both ends, right? Yeah. Sure.

Anyways, the “theme” for tomorrow night’s Supper Club is a BBQ Dish with a Twist. For that, I’m making an Indian Potato Salad. My other contributions will be Falafel-Spiced Pecans, Cauliflower Potato and Pea Curry, Strawberry Heaven Pizza and Parmesan Orzo Primavera. I think I’m most looking forward to the Strawberry Heaven Pizza. I clipped this recipe awhile ago, and the picture looks scrumptious. Dough layered with mascarpone cheese, ricotta, strawberry jam, brie and fresh strawberries. Although an unusual mix, if the picture is any indication, it should be a winner.

Dinner tonight … well, nothing inspired, I hate to say it. It was going to be leftovers, but two sets of neighbors stopped by and Dinner Interruptus ensued. Then, with The Husband working late tonight, and with me still having one errand to do, dinner ended up being Dashboard Dining at its best … a stop through a drive-thru on the way to do erranding.

Anyways, turning in now to get some shut-eye. Tune in tomorrow to see what everyone else brought to the Supper Club table. Until then…
