B-rad and I hosted a small cookout for the fourth and per usual I made too much food. Here is a breakdown of all the yummy treats:
Margarita Cupcakes ready for baking. These were awesome!
I shredded this chicken and simmered it in Orange Bourbon BBQ Sauce (I forgot the coriander and added cock sauce).
Inspired by this recipe. I didn’t use cheese, honey, or butter because I wanted to keep it vegan. I also added cilantro and red (instead of green) onions that I rinsed with the black beans.
All the vegetables! There was also corn! I made an arugula pesto with garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, and cilantro to top the veggies after being grilled.
Leah made amazing smore pops, they were delicious, but alas, not photographed.
Aaron tried to make a vegan strawberry rhubarb pie but sadly his baking skills were lacking.
He did redeem himself by making the frosting for my cupcakes (even though B-rad forgot the salt and tequila).
We hope everyone had a great America, fuck yeah! day.
