24 people in a 800 square foot house...


Whoa! It's been a busy week! The food you see pictured here was part of yesterday's celebration of Lisa & Michael, who will be married on August 12--congrats guys!

Since I don't want to bore you with the recipes of all of our dishes, I'll highlight one that was a monster hit:

Stephen's Creamy Coleslaw
1.5 cup mayo
3 TB sugar
3 TB spicy mustard
3 bags slaw mix
1 teaspoon celery seed
3 TB white wine vinegar
Salt & pepper to taste
Juice of one large lemon

Whisk liquid ingredients, add to slaw mix and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve soon!

The rest of the menu included: Pulled pork, pulled chicken, baked beans, curry chickpea salad, two mixed green salads, fresh fruit, and a brownie tart & cheesecake for dessert. We also had margaritas, sangria, beer, wine and soda. Whew!

Please shoot me an email if you want the recipe for any of the above--they were all super tasty!

Stephen says: Stop talking to me. I'm eating.

Stephen's rating: 8

We also used some of the leftover pulled chicken on a homemade pizza tonight (I used BBQ for the sauce, yummy mozzarella and carmelized onions...drool....). Always great when you can find a new twist on leftovers! To that end, anyone in the Ballard 'hood is welcome to stop by and take a crack at eating approximately 30lbs of leftover BBQ-ed meat...

This looks like a great party; I'm cooking for a crowd on Tuesday, and this give me ideas. I'd love to know how to make the chickpea salad....
