I want to a dinner party this weekend. We had this idea that we could mimic the show Iron Chef and pick and ingredient that everyone would have to use in the different courses. We chose lime as our main ingredient.
Debbie made ceviche:
Laura P. made a yummy salad with a lime vinaigrette and limed veggie skewers. Laura T. made a tomatillio lime salad and a cilantro lime pesto.
I did a Tequila Lime Chicken Pasta:
And we finished it off with four lime desserts made by Danielle, Jessica and Laura P.:
There were, of course, margaritas, limeade, lime sherbet smoothies and even Pepsi with Lime for beverage choices.
It was a totally fun experiment, but I think we learned that there’s a reason why people usually balance the flavors of their meals a little better. By the third bite of the evening, the only thing I could taste was lime. In fact, I may have had my fill of lime for the month.
Next time, Mexican, maybe.
The Lime Gals:
Laura T., Jessica, Debbie, Danielle and Jackie, Laura P. and Me! (Yes, I realize Laura T.’s eyes are closed, but mine are closed in the other one we took and it’s my website, ha!)
