Garlic party!


Me and the girls try to go out once a month for a girls night out. This month we decided that we would have a girls night in! That way we could save a few bucks, and try out each others cooking!

The party was at Stacy's house, so she chose the theme: Garlic!

For the first course, I made...

Walleye Corn Cakes! My last post was a test run for this. the recipe is similar, but not quite the same.

Here is the recipe!

I large Walleye/Pickerel Fillet, cooked and roughly chopped
1 cob of corn, cooked and removed from the cob
2 eggs
1/3 cup of milk
1/2 cup flour
1T fresh Dill
1/2 c. Shredded cheese
1 sweet potato cooked.
1 bulb of Garlic, roasted.

Mix it all together.

Heat some olive oil, and pour 1/4c servings into oil, into small fritters. Cook until browned, and flip and cook the other side. Drain on towels.

Stacy made delicious Garlic soup

Giorg Garlic Soup
4 oz butter
1 head garlic (9-10 coves)
3/4 C chopped prosciutto
1/2 C leeks*
1/2 C white onion*
*Leeks/onion chopped in food processor

ADD TO: 32 oz chicken stock

flour to thicken (1/2 cup mixed with wate)
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
2 large potatoes (diced small)
1 C white wine
salt and pepper to taste

Cook until potatoes are tender. Add 500 ml of heavy cream. Heat and serve.

Excuse the dark photos, the dining room was dark and candlelit!

Lori made gnocchi with garlic sauce.

The recipe can be found here

And a caesar salad.

Jackii made garlic Dessert.

You read that right.

And guess what?

They were delicious.

She took garlic cream cheese, and coated them with chocolate, and then rolled them in graham cracker crumbs. They only tasted the tiniest bit of garlic. They were wonderful!

She found the recipe here

I can't wait to see what we come up with next month!
