The Tiki Hut is open! I don't think it actually ever closes! I'm talking about the pool hangout belonging to my friends, Jeff and Carrie. They are also parents to Willie and the boys, Bo and Marley, who are in the pet gallery here. As you ca see in a blog from the Summer of 2015, Jeff has a Primo grill and loves to cook and smoke on it, and lots of us love to eat his food! We had a great time this weekend with great food, pulled pork barbecue and smoked chicken, and I made some new friends!
My contribution to this get together was a creamy Bowtie Pasta Salad, always a big hit at any gathering! This is a very simple and delicious recipe and it is a big recipe. It says it serves 8-10 but it would probably go to more like 12-16. I'm posting it here so you can use it, especially for the great summer parties and cook-outs coming up!
We made this recipe in culinary school, but we did make our own ceasar dressing then. If anyone is interested in that recipe I will gladly post it, but it sure was easy to open a couple of bottles of dressing, although it was not as thrifty, but you don't have leftover anchovies, either!
A place to share my favorite things...friends and food, dogs, college football, and my inspiration, Sawyer, the most beautiful little girl in the world!
