MARTINI MONDAY – (enjoy the first evening of the week with a cool cocktail and a easy snack!)
Well Saturday night was another awesome Jamaican me Crazy Party. Fun, food, friends. What could be better!
They got drink recipes off the website:
We played some Reggae music that I brought. Our favorite XRT DJ played me some Marley while I packed up the tools of my trade on Friday night. Thanks to you Tom!
The 4 happy couples made different recipes. There was a delicious crab and mango appetizer.
The girls made up a spicy jerked chicken. Plus we had cooling coconut lime rice, black beans, a juicy tropical salad with pineapple, peppers, water chestnuts, and edamame . Our cook on that dish is not a cook at all! So he was able to learn what the heck an edamame (soy beans) is. Plus he learned how to peel a piece of ginger with a spoon. We finished up with some feelin’ happy orange custard dessert.
Was the group feelin’ happy? I’d say so! They got to eat – I cleaned it all up!
If you eat Jerk, you must drink a Jerk Killer to help balance your taste buds. Since I’m not at your house helping you cook jerk, you can at least make a Jerk Killer…Ask Tom to play you a little Bob Marley and enjoy the beginning of the week.
