Dinner Club last night was awesome. I think we all needed it. As usual, everyone brought their A game. The Shooks hosted and made the appetizers and entree. The Jaegers brought over tasty beverages, and the Shalins were in charge of dessert. Here’s how it broke down:

Theme: Welcome to Summer

Mexican Salad

Pineapple and Cilantro Salad

Prosciutto with Melon


Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Burgers

Homemade French Fries

Summer Berry Brownie


Wine and…
Slushie Cape Cod

4 C cranberry juice
2 C orange juice
2 C vodka
Mix well and freeze for 4-5 hours before serving.

I love having Dinner Club at the Shooks because they have a great bar where you can sit and watch them cook. As you can see, the Mexican Salad appetizer was beautiful and tasted great. The Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Burgers were fantastic (and I finished mine for lunch today). Molly and Keith cut up some endive and apples as burger toppers. Really was good! The homemade french fries sealed the deal for me. I think many of us hadn’t eaten them like that in several years. Kinda took you back to how mom would make them. You already know all about the dessert. Specials props to Warren and Carrie for bringing over the wine and those Slushie Cape Cods. Those went fast!
