Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you the most anticipated blog post of the year! My birthday party food!
Now, if we can be honest for a minute, I do not have the money to throw elaborate birthday parties. At all. So I did a BBQ and it was awesome! I made everything myself which was honestly one of my favorite parts of the day. I never get to cook for anyone so that was awesome that I finally did! And I learned I can definitely handle a big crowd. I made five pounds of Juicy Lucy’s and 3Q (yes, quarts) of Salsa! I also made some homemade guacamole and sangria for which I will include the recipe for here. But first, can we seriously marvel at all this salsa?!
That’s a lot of freaking salsa!
1 Jalapeno, seeded
1T Minced garlic
1T Lime juice
Salt to taste
1. Put jalapeno into the food processer and chop up real smooth
2. Get the avocado out of the skin. I usually cut them in half and scoop it out with a spoon
3. Mix everything together in a big bowl and let sit in the fridge for a few hours for the flavors to meld
Yea, I ran out of room in my crock pot which was what I was originally going to use to hold it but oh well. The cooler worked double duty as it was also cold
2 Gallons Moscato Sangria, I used Carlo Rossi
2c Raspberry Bounce, my uncle makes this so I’m not sure of a substitute. Raspberry pucker maybe? Anything super fruity with liquor
2c Frozen raspberries
2c Frozen strawberries
1. Put everything in a cooler
2. Drink lots of sangria
3. Snack of drunk fruit =]
