Cooking Club – Tailgate

12 Nov

Sunday brought to close yet another successful Cooking Club, when the “Clubbers” (no seals were harmed) descended upon the Millers’ to consume tasty fall favorites, delicious appetizers and stick-to-your-ribs, well, ribs..

Recipes included such greats as, Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Sandwiches, Mexican Cornbread, Seven Layer Dip, Kicked Up Deviled Eggs, Baked Artichoke Dip, and Turkey Chili Soup with Hominy. I walked (nay, hobbled) out at the end of the day full, fat and happy, but not before working off a few calories as Rock Band 2 was pulled out and thoroughly abused. I learned that Desiree as an excellent singing voice, and that I suck more than expected when not playing in front of own system.

Oh yeah, the Vikings won their football game too, through no fault of their own..
