Cocktail: Citrus Cantina Cooler
Erin mixes up her concoction!
I don't even like blue cheese and I loved this! Caitlin, the grapefruit made the dish!Soup: Winter Squash Soup with Citrus-Mint Pesto
Lisa did an awesome job with her soup, especially since she was our pinch hitter for the night!Salad: Strawberry Citrus Salad with Homemade Lemon Dressing
Oops, forgot to take a picture of the salad til it was almost gone. And not sure where the dressing was in the picture. The bottle was for those who didn't want the yummy lemon dressing Nancy made.
Main Dish: Lemon Chicken
My lemon chicken was pretty good, especially since it was my first attempt ever doing something with chicken thighs. Maybe I should branch out of the chicken breast box again sometime!
Side Dish: Citrus Green Beans with Toasted Pine Nuts
Laura's green beans had a nice orange flavor. And she wasn't even the only one to toast pine nuts for the evening!
Side Dish: Lemon and Cherry Orzo Salad
Julia's orzo was a hit! Yum, cherries. Yum, cheese. Yum, lemon. Yum, arugula.
Dessert: Lemon Cloud Cake (and Blood and Cara Cara Oranges)
Becki's lemon cake was light and a perfect end to the night. As were our "drunken" oranges, that is oranges splashed with Prosecco.
The night was such a success we have already scheduled our next event in early April. The theme then will be ginger and we enjoyed brainstorming future meal themes as well. Check out the calendar for more fun mom nights!
