OHHH, we have been waiting and waiting for this month’s Supper Club!
Finally our August Supper Club arrived- do you know what that means? The gender reveal of baby Cabrera! Yippeee!
Diana always impresses me with her cooking skills, and this month did not dissapoint. Her table scape was so cute- and gave no clues as to the gender of the baby. Sneaky, sneaky!
The August Menu
Shrimp Cocktail with Cocktail Sauce
Yogurt Spinach Dip with Crackers
Fresh Greens Salad with Lime Vinaigrette
Beef Stuffed Bell Peppers
Tres Leche Cake ( Gender Reveal)
Diana played it up classy with a shrimp cocktail and spinach yogurt dip with party crackers for starters. I LOVE shrimp cocktail.. mainly because I have a thing for Horseradish. This was a pre-preggo thing, so nothing new.
Diana used store bought spinach yogurt dip as well as the cocktail sauce. For the recipe below, I’ve shared my favorite recipe for shrimp cocktail. It isn’t what I would call gourmet (because, how can ketchup ever be classified as gourmet?), but I would call it darn good.
Her beverage for the evening was my favorite- and totally preggo friendly (although I’m sure you could add some Vodka for a nice kick). I ended up going straight home and making up a batch for myself to enjoy! This Sparkling CranRazzy drink is so yummy and she got the recipe from one of my favorite recipe websites- Eating Well. A yummy super summery drink, perfect for 100+ degree days.
The main entree was delicious- stuffed bell peppers (the red kind are my favorite), creamy scalloped potatoes with a fruity twist, and a simple garden salad- I give it all a 10.
Especially those potoatoes. Holy Gracious- I confess to have had two helpings. There was a sweet bite every now and then that I couldn’t quite figure out what it was. I kept thinking it was the sweetness of carmelized onion or something along those lines.
Finally I asked what it was and she said it was Granny Smith apple.
Although not the healthiest potato I’ve ever eaten, it is definitely worth it to indulge. I could eat on a batch of these puppies for days.
Finally it was time for dessert and the gender reveal of baby Cabrera! Diana had a Tres Leches cake made with special icing in the middle- so when they cut into it, it would either be pink or blue..
Which willllll it be??
Blue it is!! Baby Cabrera is a boy!
Our ever growing Supper Club is growing by the day it seems. By the end of December we will have three new additions to our once group of 8.. then 9.. and now we are a future group of 12!
Another month down in the books of successful and oh-so-fun Supper Club with my favorite people!
