Ive got oodles of pictures to share!
After eating three helpings of everything last night and munching on leftovers all day today I am one happy girl. All of the food was amazing – and my friends even brought me some special goodies. My friend Donna gave me fresh basil and kale from her garden and coconut butter – which i have been wanting to try because it smells so yummy! Karla, my other friend gave me a bag full of sun-dried tomatoes which I am really excited to cook with. Thank you both so much!
Now to the potluck! I decided to make two of my favorite recipes from Ani Phyo. I made my sweet red pepper corn salsa but added spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes – I also made pecan pie cookies. In the cookies I ended up using raspberry tea instead of the orange juice because we didn’t have any. But they turned out tasty anyway!
All of the food that everyone brought was delicious. I tried to pick a favorite but I couldn’t!
I want to apologize in advance for the pictures being a bit blurry – I was really eager to start eating haha!
Dar made these and they are so yummy! She made the carrot-avocado soup was so creamy and dreamy – and there were only two ingredients.
This hummus has to be the best I have EVER eaten – and I work in a lebanese restaurant. My friend Karla made this and I am so happy she did. I am even happier that she gave me a tupperware container of it to take home!
It is so funny – my friend Donna and I both made the same cookie recipe from Ani Phyo. You can see the difference. She let hers process more and formed them in teeny cute flat pancakes. I however simply used an ice cream scooper to make balls that were about the same size.
I just love our monthly potlucks – the conversation is great and I trulydo look forward to spending time with my friends. Our next one is scheduled for August 12th!
