People have said that French chefs don't get fat because they work so hard preparing their food. I hope I'm becoming like that. That's a bowl of egg whites up there, with peaks! Yes, beaten by hand. I may call in sick to care for my sore arm tomorrow!
So, you're broke. hungry. need a date with hubby. what to do? Make it at home! So stinking good! Appetizers, drinks, dessert and delicious coconut shrimp! for less than $15!!!
I didn't make up any of these recipes except the dipping sauce but here's the links to find them.
Cheddar Bay biscuits
Cheesecake (salad) via my cousin Jessica
1 box cheesecake pudding mix
1 c. milk
whipped cream about 2 cups
1/2 c. berries
1/4 c. sugar
2 T. butter, melted
crushed graham crackers- i used about 8
by the way, these measurements aren't totally accurate. but you can fudge it. I'm not an exacto chef, I looked at the recipe, mixed everything in that order and it tasted fantastic. If you want exact measurements, google it or call Jessica or something:)
Pina Colada dipping sauce for shrimp
In a food processor mix pineapple (fresh is best) a little cream, coconut and a dash of sugar until it becomes saucy, but not pureed. (This was the same sauce we used on our pineapple upside down waffles a few weeks back).
Have a great cheap date night!!
