Thank God for the teenagers. Really and truly.
Left to our own devices, we purged the fridge, went shopping, prepped and have a complete BBQ for 10 or possibly 14 people this evening.
Chicken Shawarma with Pita bread and Tahini sauce
Made by me and cobbled from mostly Epicurious and AllRecipes. Decided by a second viewing of the Avengers. I don't have cardomom in-house, so I was looking for a cardamom-less version and more guidance than the mysterious "mixed spice" ingredient I also came across.
Done and prepped by Teenager #1
To be grilled by charming husband/golfer
King Egg Rolls, brought by one of our guests/golfers
Done and made completely by Teenager #2
Magical-Self Separating Finger Jello
Brought by the family of another golfer
Snickerdoodles, fresh berries and fresh maple whipped cream
To be made by Teenager #1. These are frozen "Fundraiser" cookies. Perhaps they can be marketed as "Snickerdoodle Shortcakes." I like the sound of that.
Go from zero to full meal for at least 10 in two hours. Now it's time to clean the house.
Eat Well. Be Well.
