The Shooks hosted and made the appetizers and entree. The Jaegers brought over a tasty mixed drink concoction. The Shalins were in charge of dessert. And the newbies, the Eisons (Rob and Shelley), came with homemade hard apple cider.
Sorry, no link to a recipe…it was made up
Macaroni and cheese
Another dinner club at the Shooks, another complete act of food gluttony. We started (and probably could have finished) with grilled cheese sandwiches and tortilla soup. Both were great–I really enjoyed the tart apple in the sandwich, and, as usual, bacon makes everything better. We then polished off this lethal mixed drink and hard apple cider. Both were better than outstanding. We all rolled over to the table and proceeded to consume yet more food. How’s fried chicken tenders, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and dinner rolls sound? Keith fried the chicken in his brand new mini-deep fryer (jealous!). He treated those tenders like a pro. And don’t get me started with Molly’s first attempt at roll-making. It was perfection! Conversation ranged from marathons to how curing meat is like fermenting beer. Don’t ask.
