|Our AWESOME last minute t-shirts!|
Each team was required to make: an appetizer, a side, a main dish and a dessert. There were prizes for each category as well as one grand prize for best overall. The judges were our family and friends. What started as a small cook-off for 15 people quickly morphed into one for 50!
I'll post all of the recipes (from Team 1 anyways) in the coming week, but for now, here were the menus. We had so many other ideas that we're going to make them for our smaller family BBQ on Monday (specifically homemade potato chips!)
Team 1 (my sister, my niece and I)
Appetizer: Mexican Grilled Corn Crostini
Side Dish: Grilled Vegetable Panzanella Salad
Main Dish: Lemon Thyme Chicken
Team 2 (my older brother, his girlfriend, my nephew and his friend)
Appetizer: Filet Tenderloin Slider
Side Dish: Asian Slaw
Main Dish: Grilled Spareribs with Bourbon BBQ Sauce
Dessert: Mascarpone Cream Filled Cake with Fresh Berries in Amaretto Liquor
We (Team 1) ended up winning the competition but I think our guests were right when they said they were the real winners for getting to eat all of this delicious food. Clearly they were, when we stumbled into the kitchen after a long day and all that was left was a few berries!
