The Week Before Last Week’s Lovely Little Potluck!

23 Nov

Whimsically, my friends and I decided to cook the weekend before last.

Okay, naturally, this wasn’t on a whim but was half-way planned in the first place.

We found out just in time that Nathan and Jessy were bringing steaks for the meat-eaters.

Our menu included many delicious things:

  • mashed potatoes
  • green beans
  • goat cheese
  • rolls
  • steak
  • monkey bread

First, we split up beans and boiled them.

Then Kimber-Lily took the beans, hid them, left, and didn’t tell anyone where they were when we were getting ready to eat.

Luckily someone thought to check the microwave, and there they were.

Tyler prepared the sauce for the monkey bread.

He put the bread and suchlike into the oven and baked it.

The result was delicious monkey bread, which is sweet, cinnamon-y, and savory all at once.

I basted some rolls and minced fresh rosemary, adding them to the rolls, and heated them on low in the oven.

Kimber-Lily also boiled a massive number of potatoes. Her famous mashed potatoes are locally called “crack potatoes.”

The resultant “crack potatoes” were creamy and delicious, and I ate quite a few.

The steak was thoroughly tenderized, then put on the grill.

If nothing else, I can vouch with certainty that the steak turned out beautifully!

Last, but certainly not least:


If you’ve never had goat cheese before, in any form, you have been deprived. The typical flavor is tangy mixed with creamy, and it goes very well on bread and toast. This isn’t the kind of cheese you would use for, say, a grilled cheese sandwich, of course; rather, think of it like a spread, a side, or a dip.

I hope this hasn’t made everyone too jealous! Our meals are always super-tasty!
