Hello again. In this edition of The Dinner Diaries, I’m giving a recap of our first Steeplechase. We had a great time tail-gating with some of our HCA friends (Tyler’s co-workers). In the south, tail-gating is an art form. We do it right. I would consider Steeplechase the “Masters” of taile-gates (Yes, I use golf analogies now because I’m married to a golf-aholic!). Here are some pictures from the day:
Best part of Steeplechase: My fabulous fascinator!
No pictures of the tailgate food and bevs, but here are some highlights that I can’t wait to make myself:
-Strawberry, marshmallow, angel food skewers
-Buffalo Chicken Sliders
– Chicken and Broccoli Stromboli
And yes, I did see a horsey race!
On another note, today I bought a copy of Cooking light magazine for a little healthy inspiration. With summer comes lots of yummy veggies. Tyler and I are trying to slim down for bikini season, so look for some healthy summer recipes to come! They had a great article about summer salad variations. I didn’t have any ingredients for the ones in the magazine… so i improvised! I call it the Fajita Salad!
This salad includes: Romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, grilled chicken, grilled onions, grilled yellow pepper, grilled mushrooms, shredded cheese, croutons. I’m excited to experiment with some new ingredients and make creative salads! Stay tuned!
