The Nui Nuts were not victorious this time -- this West Coast sand rolls fast! But we'll be back, with some new and delicious homemade liquer!
I didn't even get to play bocce this time : ( On the way over Brian insisted he didn't want to play cuz he/we are so bad at it. It must have been the magic of the Voodoo Priestess and beginners luck that lead to the surprising upset!
I just want to add my appreciation and thanks to our wonderful hosts for sharing their amazing backyard and yummy libations. I had a great time and loved meeting you all.
Are/will recipes be available for the homemade liquer? And any other food/drink recipes? I've already got the Voodoo Priestess from SF gate
Ironically, I had just looked it up week or two before the party, the cold weather reminded me of it from last year's FI drink specials, I'd bought the ingredients, but hadn't gotten around to making it.
In case anyone wants it, here's the recipe for the Black Bean Corn salad I made (I doubled the recipe for the party)
Black Bean & Corn Salad
3 cups black beans (or 2 15-ounce cans black beans, rinsed & drained)
1 15-ounce bag or can of yellow corn (or 2-3 ears) ( if frozen defrost or cook the corn)
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup salsa verde
Put everything in a bowl and stir. Add more salsa verde as needed.
