It was my one year Anniversary of living in gorgeous Charlotte a few weeks back. To make that Anniversary even better, I have baby Cardinal’s by my door to my patio. Oh how I missed green trees, green grass, and the amazing nature. I have woods in my backyard, and deer come and sleep there, LOVE IT!!!!
Do you see the red blur? That is their Daddy protecting them, Mom was near by too.
Okay, Okay on to fun food talk now! I am doing my very first catering event Saturday, HOLY CATS that is only two days away!!!!! I am ready to go, thank you again to beautiful Nelly from Cooking with Books for her help. AND a HUGE thank you to my supportive husband from RadioExiles, he will be helping me the day of the party. He has been helping taste the goodies too, not a bad gig I would say! It is a Kentucky Derby themed party, so time to make some traditional Derby food, and old favorites. I will share the food from the party on Saturday, I have to it is that exciting for me!
I do have one dish to share, I made Kentucky Derby Chocolate Pecan Pie, and wrote an article for it on Queen City Exclusive. The recipe is there and all, even my favorite recipe for pastry for double-crust pie that is on Chef2Chef.
Tonight I will be writing an article about Mint Juleps, and will share the link when it is up. I am not a bourbon girl, but the mint infused in the bourbon smelled amazing.
Have you ever been to a Kentucky Derby party, or the Kentucky Derby?
Until Next time, Come on in, Have a seat,
