2014 Blogger Party
Chris (Nibble Me This) and I have discussed this year’s Blogger Party and have settled on the date of Saturday, June 7. At the suggestion of Dave (Inspired By eRecipe Cards), this year we will be asking you to join us at the East Tennessee Italian Fest where we will be pretending we are on a dock at the Amalfi Coast enjoying Neapolitan and other Italian cuisines. We’ll be serving up a pasta bar, salad, and bread along with appetizers and dessert.
Our plan is to ask some of the attendees to bring their favorite sauces for the pasta as well as some other items. In early May, we’ll be back with more details and an RSVP request so please mark your calendar and be thinking about the menu. If you plan to attend and already know you’d like to provide something (sauce, dessert, etc), please go ahead and let us know. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please feel free to advertise this on your blogs.
Bev was still in St. Maarten on St. Patrick’s Day so I decided to await her return for the traditional meal. The plan was for corned beef and colcannon, but when the meat was done, neither of us felt like much cooking so we opted to just make Reuben Sandwiches instead.
Bev had bought some good rye bread, we had some baby Swiss cheese in the fridge along with some homemade 1000 Island dressing. Let me digress – I have purchased many types of kraut and made my own on several occasions, but I liked the brand Bev bought for the Reuben’s as well as any I’ve eaten. It was Silver Floss, Barrel Aged and will be the standard around here for now on.
I know when most folks think of a Reuben, it often has this image.
But this is way more than I want to eat and while it makes an impressive photo, I just put two thicker layers of corned beef on mine and grilled them to get this.
Bev said hers could have had on more layer of meat and I suppose she could be right but mine was awfully darned good just the way it was.
Photos can be enlarged by clicking on them.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
