A few more appetizers to add to our three part series about the Wedding Shower and then we’ll move on to other things. Not to say that these last two “bites” are to be dismissed. I definitely think you should try them. Once is so simple that you will wish you would have thought of it sooner.
As promised, here is more of the food that Yes!Chef! prepared for his daughter’s wedding shower: Blue Cheese and Pistachio Wrapped Grapes. If you have never made these before, this is the time of year to try these. They are cool and refreshing, sweet, crunchy and spicy.
I am of the opinion that bright colors make everything look better, but these blue cheese wrapped grapes rolled in a spicy pistachio mixture goes particularly well with the bright colors that we used at my daughter’s wedding shower. Her maid of honor brought roses, gerbera daisies and white flowers to decorate our home for the shower. The bright green pistachios seemed perfect with this color scheme.
What kind of dad would Yes!Chef! be if he didn’t make all the food for his only daughter’s wedding shower? Well, he would still be a good dad. And his daughter would still love him dearly. But he wouldn’t have as much fun and the food at her shower would not be as tasty.
I might have mentioned that it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago. And, in celebration, Yes!Chef! made dinner for the fam. He suggested an upscaled Kentucky Fried Chicken type of recipe, which I thought might be mighty tasty. I’m pretty sure most people have eaten at Kentucky Fried Chicken at some point in their life. My daughter tells me that in Mozambique, the Kentucky Fried Chicken Restaurant is where everyone hangs out. She also tells me that they eat a lot of chicken in Mozambique, along with fruits, vegetables and rice.
