Last night, we had a handful of close friends over to watch the UFC fight. We had a fabulous time, and all ate way too much.
Here’s a little photo tour of what we served. I’ll be posting the recipes up later on this week.
I made a huge batch of Crispy Sesame Chicken Nibbles. This is a great thing to put out at a party because they’re really easy to eat—and you can serve them with a variety of dips and sauces.
The one thing I changed from my original recipe was that I shallow-fried them in about a quarter-inch of olive oil (instead of simply pan frying them).
They were extra crispy as a result.
I served this with two dipping sauces. There was a spicy, chipotle-lime ketchup:
And a cool and creamy buttermilk blue-cheese dressing:
And you know I couldn’t resist the opportunity to make a few giant batches of ribs.
There were jalapeno-apricot glazed pork ribs (left), as well as a batch of my Garlic and Rosemary Roasted Beef Ribs (right).
I also made two pizzas—one a white pizza with a mix of Italian cheeses, and the other a more traditional red pizza with fresh mozzarella and basil.
For dessert, we had yesterday’s Flourless Chocolate Brownies, as well as a plate of good, old-fashioned Rice Krispie treats.
I made one very special, chocolate-covered Rice Krispie treat—that I totally forgot to put out by the end of the night.
You can’t win ’em all, I guess.
Look for these recipes and more this week. Hope you all had a nice weekend!
