So you wanna have a neighbor over but don’t know what to serve? My first recommendation is to pick up a Costco roasted chicken or anything in the Trader Joe’s freezer section! But, if you want something a little more home made, here are a few of our EZ family favorites – recipes for hosting a neighbor for dinner, block party, coffee klatch or other fun gathering.
Limey GREEN guac with BLUE corn chips. Need I say more? Bag the store-bought mix and just stick with fresh ingredients. Trust me.
A favorite of Mr. C’s.
You won’t find a better 5-ingredient fix for dinner on a chilly autumn or winter evening. My grandpa ONLY used red potatoes in his stew. It’s important to know that. 🙂
This Henchman family favorite recipe was first found years ago in the Stars and Stripes military newspaper. My father-in-law, a retired army Colonel, takes all the credit for making this a family classic.
Yes, ladies. Shrimp. The Ultimate power diet food, if you ask me. High protein, low fat. EZ to make. And this yummy tomato glaze tastes indulgent!
Ah, Lingonberries. A danish favorite. This one is a definite nod to Seattle’s scandinavian heritage. And, my mother-in-law is also of Danish decent so I’m scoring major family brown-nose points with this one. ;o
My neighbor Jenny shared this amazing chicken salad with me and it became an instant family favorite. PERFECT for too-hot-to-cook and too-hot-to-grill summer evenings!
It’s a dazzling LIME GREEN beverage in a BIG BLUE glass. Need I say more? GoHawks!
