Cooking Club Thursday July 23rd @ 3:00pm

We will be making grilled vegetables with Basalmic Vinegarette so you will need to bring vegetables that you family likes, the best ones to grill are :

Yellow squash/zuchinni asparagus
sweet or green onions eggplant
mushrooms peppers
corn tomatoes

any other vegetable your family would like that wont fall through the grill grate.

You will also need olive oil to coat the vegetables, salt and pepper.
For the vinegerette you will need basalmic vinegar, 2 to 4 cloves of garlic, 1 to 2 teaspoons of fresh chopped parsley, basil and rosemary, and olive oil.
I serve these with rice or couscous, so bring enough for your family. Grilled meat is optional. You can bring chicken breast or pork chops or steak or even lamb.
We will also make an old family recipe from Wes's Mom. She calls it Great Aunt Nellie's Apple Crisp, the recipe makes enough for a 6x8 pan but I usually double it for a 9x13 pan. So for it you will need 4 cups of apples peeled and sliced or any fresh fruit in season. Our family really enjoys making it with blackberies or peaches or a combination of both.
You will also need:
1 cup of flour 1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 to 1 cup of sugar 1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 egg 1/3 cup of oil or melted butter
If you want to make the bigger size double the above ingredients. I usually do for my family.
Tools you will need to bring include casserole dish for your vegetables, a cup or bowl for the vinegarette, pan for your rice or couscous, then a baking dish for the crisp as well as a small mixing bowl for the topping. Don't forget a knife and cutting board for cutting the vegetables and chopping the herbs. I will bring a couple long tongs for the grill and I will have my propane grill there and another charcoal grill.
See you on Thursday about 3:00pm.
