Friday, May 14, 2010 Blueberry Night Declared a Success!!!

What began as a slow night, with me staring out the porch door looking for signs of peeps, turned into one of the most scrumptious Thursday evenings ever!

Chilled Blueberry Soup with a swirl of Greek Yogurt started off the night. Made with White Zinfandel it had an aroma way more complex than a melted ice pop, dark in color it was bursting with drunken-blueberry flavor. The yogurt swirl was just enough to add a creamy surprise to every little spoon.

Chilled Chicken and Blueberry Pasta Salad was a familiar comfort food, with an occasional burst of sweet and tangy fresh blueberry goodness. The only problem was I kept putting it back in the fridge! Living chickens should be free-range, but once they're cooked it's either HOT or COLD - nothin' in between.

The main course was a yin-yang of sweet and salty with a side of spicy. Juicy ham, bathed in cherry juice and root beer, was dressed in a Maple-Blueberry Sauce. Knives were not needed as the ham quickly melted away under the slightest pressure from a fork. Kind of like Kettle Corn in it's perfectly-blendedness I could have eaten it until it was gone. But, alas, the Cooked Corn Salsa with Blueberries was calling out to me from the other side of the plate. "Hey, Lady! You thought me up! Now eat me!" Corn, peppers and onion, spiced up with jalapenos and tempered with bursts of blueberry - going back and forth between the two I had about three platefuls.

While I'm on the number three - the Blueberry Dessert Trio! OMG! Blueberry Rice Krispy Treats? To die for! Blueberry Muffins out of cake mix? Brilliant! And the Blueberry Sorbet? Ask Marc. He had three scoops :)

All this from a tiny little blue berry.


I'm so filled up with anti-oxidants I only needed 5 hours sleep!


Onto the video!
