Anyways, a few weeks ago, I was asked to cater a Supper Club monthly gathering for Stephanie Depriest Robbins and 11 other couples in the Supper Club. There are 12 couples total, and each couple hosts the monthly gathering at their house once a year. Pretty cool idea! They have been going strong for over 20 years, and I was so thrilled that Stephanie decided to let me take the load off her hands and get in on the fun! We decided to REALLY have some fun, and do a Mexican Buffet. As I pulled the Sofrito out of my freezer, stirred together the Guacamole, and pulsed the Salsa in the food processor- I found myself longing for the days in Costa Rica, where the Spanish poured out of me like I had been speaking it my whole life, and Evelyn showed me the beauty of cooking real Hispanic food with a pinch of spice, a spoon of Sazon, and a whole lotta love.
Enjoy the photos from the FIESTA buffet, and if you are craving a little homemade Mexican food sans the Ol Del Paso seasoning packets, give me a call and I'll show you how it's done. (I promise to speak English.)
