Food, friends, & fun is a common trio but as Emeril would say, “Let’s kick it up a notch!” Add the desire expand our recipe box to this already amazing trio and you get the great concept of the Triple F Party!
I asked Peter why he started having Triple F nights. This is what he said:
“The idea for the “triple F” party has been bubbling in my brain for awhile. A few months ago Debbie and I wrote down all the recipes that we cooked for dinner on a regular basis. The list ended up being about 10 items long which is very surprising considering we both like food so much. In an effort to expand our list of stock meals, we started trying new recipes out of the cookbooks we had. As it turns out looking through a cookbook to make something you’ve never had before, and don’t know if you’ll like, is very daunting. About this time a friend of Debbie’s gave her a recipe to try, saying that her husband and child loved it. She made it that week and it was really good. This got me thinking that I hadn’t been using the best resource out there for new recipes, our friends. I started wondering how many of our friends were in the same stock recipe rut like us. Finally it all came together that we could all benefit from some new ideas in the kitchen by sharing all our favorite recipes. Having everyone bring the cooked dish is just added bonus.”
Over the next few month, you’ll get to meet all of the people behind the amazing recipes posted on this blog in a series of post called “Meet Your Friends”
Inspired by 4th of July our next gathering was themed around our American favorites. Everyone brought a dish that reminded us of this patriotic time of year. A few of the items are pictured above: (from top left) Corn Bread Salad, Hot Dog Rumaki, Mini Sliders, Bread Pudding, & Cupcake Burgers and Fries. Items not pictured included BBQ Chip Chicken Fingers, Grandmere’s Potato Salad, and Sweet Tea (of course). Recipes for all of these items will be featured in the next posts.
A group of us have been meeting monthly to celebrate some of our common interests… food, friends, and fun! The rules are simple: we gather, each with a home cooked food and the recipe to share with each other. Everyone samples the food items, talks about the recipes and enjoys each others company in a fun filled evening.
After a few successful gatherings we think it’s time for everyone to follow us as we blog about our love for food, friends, & fun!
