2015 Western Trip – Day 65 – Whoop De Do #2

We first met Dave and Jackie when they drove all the way from Kansas City to attend our 2012 blogger Party (Louisiana crawfish boil) and on the way home from our 2013 Western Trip, they suggested we stay in KC for a couple of days and they would throw a Whoop De Do (whatever that was).  Turned out, it was when they invited a bunch of people over and laid on a real feast with these dishes: Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce, BBQ Turkey, 30 Garlic Peppercorn Beef Roast, Cranberry Sauce & Salmon, Baby Back Ribs, Stained Glass Jello Salad, Corn and Pepper Succotash, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Garlic Potatoes and Green Beans, Mac and Cheese, Chorizo Sausage and Apple Stuffing, Cowboy Pork and Beans, Chocolate Pecan Pie, Apple Cheddar Pie.

So on our way west this trip, we had lunch with them as we past though KC and they invited us to come to another Whoop De Do on our way back home, to which we quickly said yes.  This menu included appetizers of bacon wrapped apples and bacon wrapped sausage.

Entrees included stuffed pork chops that were grilled to get nice grill marks then flipped and smoked, pulled pork sandwiches made from a bread ring (pic is from Dave's blog), pulled pork, and grilled papaya for the vegetarians.  

The sides were Creamy Dill Cucumber and Potato Salad, baked beans, chutney, grilled vegetables with walnuts & goat cheese.  The desserts were Strawberry Cream Pie and apple pie.

This year’s event seemed to have more folks than the previous one and we enjoyed meeting and chatting with their friends before and after the meal while sipping on a few different adult beverages.  

And all of a sudden another outstanding Whoop De Do was in the books.  Be sure to stop by Dave’s food blog at Inspired By eRecipe Cards for a recent recipe for most of the dishes he served and a continuous supply of recipes for all occasions and if you're ever invited to one of his Whoop De Dos, say yes.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
