Cooking Club

We've been talking about starting a new tradition (to add to the dozens we have already: Puyallup Fair, Sunriver, Chelanigans, Pumpkin Patch) and we finally made it happen: Cooking Club. Dinner Party? Grub Club? We still haven't settled on a name quite yet, but we would welcome ideas!

Basically, we rotate hosts, who then picks a food theme and we all bring a dish that corresponds. Maddie so graciously offered to host last weekend and picked "brunch for dinner" as her theme. Cha-CHING! I love brunch food. On the mouth-watering menu? Well, prepare yourself to get hungry:
  • Pomegranate mimosas, with prosecco, pomegranate seeds and juice - Liz
  • Balsamic-marinated strawberries - Liz
  • Monkey Bread - Stephanie
  • Eggs Benedict - Maddie
  • Fruit Salad - Maddie
  • Spinach, bacon and more good stuff quiche - Autumn
  • Lemon and blueberry coffee cake, topped with ice cream - Erin
  • Potato pancakes - Lizzie
  • Egg bake with sausage, onions and peppers - Petes (can't find the recipe I adapted!)

I left 9 pounds heavier, but it was totally worth it. Any ideas for the next theme?


  1. Herk,
    You have to make one of the items that you have blogged about when you come home this weekend!! Even if it is your birthday weekend at home.

  2. Love you girls! This looks awesome :)

  3. Yum! Looks great, and sounds fun! I would love to do something like this!
