Fun in the Sun

Better then late then never. Last Sunday my friends Mike and Sarah had a Pool Party/BBQ at their lovely home. The weather was awesome, the food was fantastic, the cocktails were inebriating and the company couldn't be better.

I brought over some Deviled Eggs with Truffle oil and my moms famous Fried Chicken Wings with a Spicy Asian Chili Sauce. Some other delicious apps included a Spinach and Feta baked in puff pastry, very much like a Spankopita, Roasted Bacon Wrapped Scallops, Spicy Citrus Grilled Shrimp and some great dips and cheese.

If you're having a party at Mike and Sarah's, you cannot forget to mention the wines. On this day we enjoyed several lovely wines,'99 Domaine Matrot - Meursault Perrieres,
'99 F&L Pillot - Chassagne Montrachet - Vide Bourse, '05 Pio Cesare Barolo,'06 Amisfield Pinot Noir - Central Otaga New Zealand and '06 Under The Radar Babcock Winery Syrah - Santa Barbara County.

Then came Tony's famous Margaritas. Dangerous! So smooth, but so dangerous. After a couple of those I was feelin good. More noshing and I was was full, really full. So it was time for a dip in the pool.

Dinner Time! Mike and Sarah had a great menu planned, BBQ Tri-tip, Chicken Kabobs with a Tatziki sauce, Herb Rice and Salad. But, I was still full. Like they say no pain, no I toughed if out and ate a plate full of food. It was tasty. Dessert included some great Chex Mix Cereal Bars, Coconut Caramel Bars and Chocolate Cake.
