Ssshhhhhhhh....can you hear it? It's the song 'Hot Hot Hot' - which could have been our theme song this month.
I was the host and I was inspired by this idea
In the theme of grilling, I decorated with plaid tablecloths and bandanas. The first choice for the ladies was whether to start with the 'Cantaloupe Gazpacho' or 'Tomato Gazpacho'. The grilled portion of this dish was the 'Spicy Seared Scallops' that accented the chilled soup on wooden skewers.
I served a snapper dish that can be cooked in a tinfoil packet on the grill and served on a bed of greens. I don't have a picture of the dish, but I have a picture of everyone enjoying their meal.
Finally, we ended the luncheon with 'Calypso Bananas Flambe'" over Louisanna Crumb Cake.
A big thank you to my guest, Linda Lance, for her helping hands and a hostess word of caution....Don't serve wine from a scallop bowl - it can tip over!
