feeding a crowd

It was no big deal when my boys showed up with some friends for an impromptu pool party on the 4th. We just needed lots of everything.

We served up four kinds of salads – tabouli, broccoli slaw, pasta with pesto, and a fresh green salad with peach and roasted corn (thanks Maddie).

For the protein course, we had steak tips marinated in Trader Joe’s soyaki sauce, ribs and chicken sausage.

Cold beer, seltzer and taste tasting of three gins – Hendrick’s, Uncle Val’s Botanical and Boodles rounded out the beverage course.

And dessert was a blueberry/strawberry pie and a side of watermelon.

Add in a little basketball and frisbee in the pool, and the day was perfect.
