Breakfast of Champions

Date: February 22, 2010
In Attendance: Will, Caitlin, Jillian, Gordon, Sean, Kent, Brian, Nikki

Buttermilk Biscuits and Country Gravy
Sausage and Green Pepper Skillet
K8’s Kountry Kiche

Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner?! It’s simply delicious. We had an especially good time coming up with the appropriate name for K8’s Kountry Kiche.

K8’s Kountry Kiche

Toasted Sourdough bread, cut into triangles
Toasted Wheat bread, cut into triangles
½ a medium onion, finely chopped
8 Eggs
Cooked ground sausage
Feta Cheese
Hot sauce

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Grease to bottom and sides of a 9X13 inch pan; sprinkle lightly with flour. Layer bread pieces in the bottom of the baking dish, enough so you can’t see the bottom of the pan. Sauté chopped onion and sausage and spread evenly over the bread. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs with a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper, and a dash of hot sauce. Pour over the bread and sausage. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the eggs are set. Generously sprinkle feta cheese over the top; bake for about 15 more minutes or until eggs are well done.

Allow kiche to kool for a few minutes before devouring.

Breakie for Dinner!

Hi all! From the sounds of it, I believe we might be able to schedule out next FPPC dinner for Monday, February 22, at Will's house. The menu theme will be 'Breakfast for Dinner.' The main dishes will be biscuits and gravy, and a keish of some sort. (It's bad when I don't even know how to spell what I'm making, let alone how to make it.) Side dishes may include, but are not limited to, apple sauce, bloody marys, mimosas.... Any other suggestions?

Also, please confirm that Monday will, indeed, work for everyone. We can reschedule it if needed. Dinner will start at 6:30 - 7:00, but you are welcome to come earlier. I'll be there by 5:30 to start cooking. :) Most of you should know where Will's house is because of his birthday party, but feel free to call me if you need directions.

Can't wait to see you all!! :)

Summer Lovin'

Date: 02/02/10
In attendance: Caitlin, John & Leah, Gordon & Jillian, Sean, Kent, Will

Fried Chicken
BBQ Ribs
Garden Salad
Potato Salad
Fresh Veggies w/ Hummus
Peach-Berry Bellini Salad

In the depth of winter, a nice summery meal just makes sense! The chicken was pan-fried, the ribs had homemade BBQ sauce, the potato salad had a bit of curry in it for an unexpected kick! Everything was delicious, as usual.

Recipe for Peach-Berry Bellini Salad

Peaches, fresh (or frozen, thawed)
Blackberries or Raspberries
Fresh grated ginger (optional)

Combine fruit and divide into single-serving glasses or bowls. Fill with champagne, just covering fruit. Devour.
