On Saturday night Trent and I hosted the latest in the series of themed food nights. After five very successful theme nights organised by the ladies we had decided it was time for the boys to do their bit.
The boys chose the theme of ‘BBQ fusion’. (Previous themes in the series have included scones, pies, cheese, nuts and high tea).
The evening started with Trent making margaritas for everyone as they arrived while we snacked on corn chips and salsa. Soon Bill got to work cooking his marinated chicken wings on the BBQ. We ate the chicken wings standing around the kitchen bench as our entree and they were delicious.
While the ladies relaxed on the couch with their drinks and discussed renovation plans, Mark got onto cooking his Asian pork on the BBQ and Trent prepared his Mexican corn on the cob (cooked earlier on the BBQ to save time).
A while later we were invited to sit down to a fantastic spread including the Mexican corn and BBQ pork plus no less the three wonderful salads – Mexican bean salad (Trent), zucchini salad (Bill) and cauliflower salad (Mark).
The food was absolutely fabulous. While the corn was a little spicy for Jackie, Rosey was more than happy to help her out with her share. The rest of us guarded our corn jealously. The pork was juicy and tender and went very nicely with the salads.
As for all our special events we won’t be giving a star rating, however the night was a huge success. Well done boys!
